A vacation in Disney is with no doubting the most unforgettable! So, if you still haven’t planned your next trip to Disney World with your family yet, we offer you 10 of the best Disney resorts that you can choose from according to how you’d like to spend your vacation.
We’ve taken into consideration the resorts’ luxury, themes, amenities, and value up. Let’s start planning!
Disney’s All-Star Resorts
Starting at just $99 per night, the All-Star Music Resort, All-Star Movies Resort, and All-star Sports Resort are equipped with a wonderfully immense decor based on every theme, making it an ideal place for families with young children.
You should consider this triplet of hotels if you want to spend more time and money in the parks rather than at the resort. It’s worth mentioning that the resorts don’t offer many amenities.
Caribbean Beach Resort
This resort is perfect for both children and adults. The kids can get the entire Disney world at their fingertips while adults enjoy the feel of a fancy Caribbean resort. This is especially enjoyable for those who prefer the beach over a rollercoaster.
The Caribbean Beach Resort features plenty of hammocks, beautiful grounds, and palm trees for the most peaceful vacation. The pirate-themed rooms start at $172 a night, plus, the pool comes with a water slide, and you’ll get to enjoy many Movies Under the Stars.
Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge
This resort will give you the feel of an enchanting sub-Saharan savanna, as it’s surrounded by a forty-five-acre wildlife preserve that is home to dozens of animal species and plants. Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge offers a great dining experience with African cuisine, in addition to an enormous pool with a huge waterslide.
The lodge can be super fun for all family members. However, you need to make sure that you’ll have enough time to fully immerse yourself in the lodge’s exquisite surroundings so it would be worth the price tag.
Disney’s Yacht Club Resort
Once you step into Disney’s Yacht Club Resort, you’ll feel as if you’ve used a teleportation machine to get to the towns of New England in an instant. This beautiful resort has docks, lighthouses, and windmills, in addition to the greatest pool of all of the Disney resorts.
The resort also has a water recreation area with a delicious steakhouse, a health club, and a life-sized shipwreck and lagoons. What’s more, Hollywood Studios are only one boat ride away from the resort.
Disney’s Beach Club Resort
The Beach Club Resort in Disney offers great amenities with beach decor and a seafood cafe where the entire family can enjoy delicious meals with Disney characters. Moreover, the resort features Disney World’s best ice cream parlor.
If you’re a big family, you should consider ordering the Kitchen Sink, which includes 8 scoops of ice cream served with a whole can of whipped cream.
Art of Animation Resort
You just can’t miss watching some of the best of Disney’s animated movies (Finding Nemo, Frozen, the Little Mermaid…) while in this magnificent resort. Plus, it’s a dream come true for every kid.
Amazingly, the hotel itself is themed, plus, every room is themed to a certain movie. Art of Animation Resort has the biggest pool in Disney, in addition to a food court and an on-site arcade.
The resort has access to the wonderful Finding Nemo-themed pool. All members of the family will certainly have a blast!
Disney’s BoardWalk Inn
Disney’s BoardWalk Inn will take you back in time to your childhood memories of beachside days and boardwalk nights. The theming is just flawless, but it’s a bit inconvenient that all the attractions are situated on the boardwalk.
Get ready for plenty of outdoor recreation activities, surrey rentals, gardens, a carousel, and taffy-colored shops and cottages. Moreover, there’s an on-site fitness center and a big pool for active visitors.
Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa
The Grand Floridian offers exquisite dining, opulent decor, and towering hotels. It is actually more of an adult resort, with a live orchestra, in-house spa, and tranquil atmosphere.
You can exercise at the world-class health club, watch a movie under the stars, rent a boat to float along the lagoon, and chill by the pool in your private cabanas. The only downside really is the steep prices.
Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort
The Polynesian Village Resort offers an alluring landscape, beautiful sandy beaches, and palms. Enjoy the inspiring Hawaiian décor and contemplate how it was incorporated with great taste. When we say Hawaii, we say, of course, Lilo & Stitch.
So, your children can enjoy hanging out at Lilo’s Playhouse. While you’re there, make sure not to miss the amazing Spirit of Aloha dinner show.
Disney’s Contemporary Resort
This is actually the least Disney-ish of all Disney’s resorts. It’s perfect for those who feel comfortable around modern decor and room layouts. You’ll find award-winning dining, a fascinating mural, and a Pixar Play Zone for your little ones.
Additionally, the monorail glides right through the hotel. Although the Contemporary Resort may seem like it’s made for adults, it features a bustling lobby, gift shops, and an in-house arcade.
