Disney World Resort Options

Disney resorts are divided into three basic categories. The main differences in the categories that you will find here, will be in the amenities offered, the average room size, and their price per night.

Deluxe Resorts:

These are Disney’s top-of-the-line resort offerings. The rooms will be the most spacious, they will offer the most dining options, and have the most amenities available. They will also be the most expensive.

  • Deluxe Villas
    • Bay Lake Tower at Disney’s Contemporary Resort
    • The Villas at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa
    • Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas
    • Copper Creek Villas & Cabins at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge
    • Disney’s Beach Club Villas
    • Disney’s Old Key West Resort
    • Disney’s BoardWalk Villas
    • Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa
    • Disney’s Boulder Ridge Villas
    • Treehouse Villas at Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort
    • Disney’s Riviera Resort

Moderate Resorts:

Port Orleans French Quarter Resort Disney World

Moderate resorts, as you may guess, are a step down from the deluxe category and a step above the value resorts as far as amenities, available dining, and room size. These resorts vary greatly from one another, not only in their theming, but in the acreage that the resort spans. Keep that in mind when you are choosing. There may be a long walk involved to get to the main dining area, or the bus stops.

Value Resorts:

Pop Century Resort Disney World

Value resorts will be your least expensive option, however, they will also be the smallest rooms with the least amount of dining options available. If you will be spending most of your time in the parks, and room size is not a concern, then these may be the right fit for you! The pools at the value resorts all have super cute themes, the kids love them.
