Do not be scared of checking out the Disney Resorts. Yes, they have a security check-in, but that is to protect their guests and those eating there. If you want to tour one, eat at the Counter Service area, or shop in of their stores- just tell them at the gate! They will let you know whether they are full or not, and most times, they are more than willing to let you park there to check it out. They have their reasons for turning people away, so just go with it and if you can’t park there, take one of the Disney busses from the Parks to the Resorts instead.
