There are many reasons to consider using a laundry service during a Walt Disney World trip and for some Disney guests who are visiting the most magical place on Earth for an extended stay, laundry facilities are essential. Whether you wish to save on luggage, find you have run out of clean clothes or have young children who get messy quickly, if you are staying on Walt Disney World property, your resort will have its own dedicated laundry service.

The laundry rooms are open 24 hours a day and closed rooms can be accessed by room key or Magic Band.
All Walt Disney World laundry rooms are now equipped with LaundryView technology, a convenient service saving you time and effort with real time information available for each laundry room. The free web app, which can be found at laundryview.com, allows you to search for your Walt Disney World resort and a specific laundry room to check machine availability as well as load status meaning no more walking your load down to find that all the machines are unavailable. The web app also identifies any machines that are out of order and allows you to report any problems you encounter. You can also view the weekly statistics to see the typically busy time periods which can be helpful to plan your laundry into your itinerary. Once your cycle has started, you can keep updated on its progress via the LaundryView web app or alternatively, you can activate text alerts to receive a message when your laundry has finished.
