Where To Stay At Walt Disney World Resort - An Overview

Recommended Posts

There are many different options when visiting Walt Disney World.  The resorts offer great amenities and conveniences such as included transportation to and from the airport and all the theme parks, water parks, and Downtown Disney.  All resorts offer pools, movies under the stars, refrigerators in the rooms, access to Extra Magic Hours at the theme parks, and dining options. You can also get great deals and discounts when combining resort reservations with theme park tickets and more!

When you choose to stay at a Walt Disney World Resort, there are five basic options.  Deluxe Villas, Deluxe Resorts, Moderate Resorts, Value Resorts, and Campground Resorts.  Most people will be deciding between a Deluxe, Moderate, or Value resort. 

 

Deluxe Resorts have many wonderful advantages, but also the largest price tag.  These resorts boast spacious rooms with large bathrooms.  They are closest in proximity to the theme parks so many offer theme park views from your resort room!  They also have recreational activities such as pools with water slides and hot tubs, and some even have children’s splash pad areas or beach locations.  These resorts will feature the most shops and dining options on their resort complex as well as additional transportation options to the theme parks such as boats, monorail, or even walking!

 

Deluxe Villas are larger rooms, more in-room amenities, and are located at the same wonderful Deluxe Resorts mentioned above.  Most offer kitchens or kitchenettes along with separate sleeping and living spaces.  The price is usually close to the price of a Deluxe Resort, so these can be a wonderful option for families.

 

Moderate Resorts have slightly smaller accommodations and the bathroom sink area isn’t in its own room, rather it’s separated from the sleeping area by a curtain or other partition.   The rooms are approximately 40 square feet smaller than Deluxe resorts but over 50 square feet larger than Value resorts.  These resorts will not have theme park views like Deluxe, however they do have scenic views available of lakes, rivers, or beautiful gardens.  These resorts will also have one table service dining restaurant and a bar located on site.  Recreational activities are available at these resorts such as water sports, pools with slides, bike rentals, and other fun options!

Value Resorts will be the cheapest resort room option but also the smallest with the least amenities available onsite.  There is only a single sink in the bathroom and the sleeping accommodations are much tighter with only 260 square feet total.  The resorts offer pools, but no water slides and very limited recreational activities, typically only poolside games and a movie under the stars are offered at these resorts.

The Campground resort on property offers fully equipped campsites including water, electric, and even cable TV!  The resort has a nicely sized pool with a waterslide and splash pad area for small children.  It also boasts wonderful recreational activities that are hard to find elsewhere, such as horseback riding and canoeing.  The resort is located on the lake so provides not only bus transportation around Walt Disney World, but also boat access to Magic Kingdom Park.

So what should you choose?  I would love to help you decide!  Together we will weigh the needs of your family.  Do you need a kitchen to cook all your own meals and a separate space to sleep?  Then the Villas are probably your best bet.  If you are planning to be in the parks all day and all night, then does the resort room really matter?  If that is true, then you should stick with a Value resort and save some money!  Only you can make the best decision!

    • Hi everyone! My name is Erin and I am a covid bride. My dream was to have a destination wedding. I wanted it easy, breezy and relaxed, with a whole weekend to celebrate with family and friends. I found the perfect venue, Key Largo Lighthouse Beach! (See http://www.keylargolighthouse.com ). The reviews are amazing, and my experience with the venue has been nothing but great, I have emails to prove it! My wedding was going to be four days of pure bliss, on a private beach with amazing beach houses for my bridal party to stay in (the houses can hold 25 people comfortably!) They even gave us a hugeeee discount because of covid! We planned the whole thing, including catering, desserts, an open bar, dj and photographer. But then covid hit. After moving our date back 3 times, expending our engagement far longer than we wanted, we decided enough was enough. We decided to do a small, local ceremony and reception on August 1st, and we are now married! It wasn’t my dream wedding, but it ended up being perfect, even though it was planned in two weeks! But now we’ve paid for two weddings, and we don’t feel like we need another reception. We want that money to pay off student loans, or put a down payment on a house! Or even for our future child’s college fund. However, we cannot get our money back from the venue, per the contract. Finally to the point of my post, the only way we can get a refund is by finding someone to take our place. No one would pay us directly, it would be the normal way for whoever takes over, you’d pay the venue. You’d also get our discount so you’d save money. If anyone knows someone who wants an amazing destination/beach wedding in 2021, please let me know! I’ll give you more details directly.
    • Please help me out, I am little bit confused in choosing the right website. As I am looking for a wedding ceremony script, I visited many websites but I found only three useful but still have doubt in choosing one. So I put a poll to determine which is the better option. Please vote and share your opinion. Thanks🙂 
    • Congratulations Kim and follow all mandatory guidelines and be safe. BEST WISHES both of you💞
    • It's so sweet, Nice idea. Perfect for a cute wedding.😍
    • It depends on how far you can go, Can you go out of US for destination wedding, If yes then their are tons of options Ex. Bali,Thailand is becoming the new hot spot for destination weddings, Other one I would recommend is Rajasthan,India It might be expensive wedding but totally worth it the wedding takes place in palaces. If you don't have that much of budget still their are many options available such as Sicily,Italy - get the authentic wedding ceremony in Italy other one i would recommend is going to Spain their iconic scenery are perfect for a wedding. Thanks🙂
