Disney Resorts

Disney World is NOT the place to stay at a Hilton or Marriott, although we love the brand, you HAVE to stay a WDW resort in order to truly enjoy the experience. There are 3 levels to choose from for every budget as well!

At Disney World, every vacation is a chance to make magical memories that will last a lifetime. Whether you are traveling with family or friends, the different types of resorts offer something for everyone. Here are the different types of Disney World resorts and reasons why each type of resort will give you a truly unforgettable Disney vacation experience:

Value Resorts: 

Disney’s value resorts are perfect for families who want a fun, affordable, and immersive vacation experience. From the moment you step onto the property, you will be transported to a world of Disney magic. You will be greeted by giant statues of popular Disney characters at Disney’s Art of Animation; these make for perfect for photo opportunities. The resort rooms are cozy and comfortable, and the theming is centered around beloved Disney movies or characters. Staying at a value resort will make you feel like you are part of the magic without breaking the bank. 

Disney World Value Resorts Include: All Star Movies, All Star Music, All Star Sports, Art of Animation, Pop Century Resort and the Campsites at Fort Wilderness. 

Moderate Resorts:

If you want a more relaxed and convenient Disney experience, the moderate resorts offer the perfect balance of affordability and luxury. The rooms are spacious, and the theming is subtle but immersive, making you feel like you are staying in a destination resort. The moderate resorts offer more dining options than the value resorts, including sit-down restaurants and lounges, and the amenities are perfect for both kids and adults. For example, at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort, you can unwind by the pool or indulge in a spa treatment after a day of exploring the parks.

Disney World Moderate Resorts Include: Caribbean Beach Resort, Coronado Springs Resort, The Cabins at Fort Wilderness, Port Orleans French Quarter, Port Orleans Riverside. 

Deluxe Resorts:

For those who want the ultimate five-star Disney vacation experience, the deluxe resorts offer luxury, elegance and extra magic. The rooms are spacious and come with extra perks such as balconies or views of the fireworks. The theming is refined and immersive, with attention to detail that transports you to another world. The deluxe resorts offer more amenities than the value or moderate resorts, with features like spas, fitness centers, and character dining experiences. For example, at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, you will be transported to a tropical oasis complete with tiki torches, waterfalls, pineapple drinks and island music.

Disney World Moderate Resorts Include: Animal Kingdom Lodge, Contemporary Resort, Beach Club Resort, Yacht Club Resort, Boardwalk Inn, Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, Old Key West, Polynesian Resort, Wilderness Lodge, Saratoga Springs, Riveria Resort, Swan Reserve, Swan Hotel, Dolphin Hotel, and Four Seasons Orlando.
