Here we compare each of Disney World’s resorts to help you determine which hotel is best for your next vacation. We highlight key features of the resorts, such as the category, location, and some of the resort’s noteworthy advantages.
Keep in mind that all guests staying at a Walt Disney World on-site property receives early access to FastPass+ and Dining reservations, complimentary MagicBands, Extra Magic Hours, Disney Dining Plan eligibility, complimentary transportation to/from the airport, and more. This alone makes staying at a Walt Disney resort a better option than staying at an off-site (non-Disney) resort!
With so many choices, we thought it would be helpful to do a comparison of Disney World resorts. Hopefully, this Disney resort guide will help you choose the best in-park hotel for your family vacation.
To start with, Disney classifies its resorts into three basic categories—Value, Moderate, and Deluxe.
There are also a number of Disney Vacation Club Villas and even campsites.
Disney World’s resort hotels are found in five specific regions of the park – the Magic Kingdom Resort Area, the Epcot Resort Area, the Animal Kingdom Resort Area, the Wide World of Sports Resort Area, or the Disney Springs Resort area.
All of Disney’s Deluxe resorts have earned a AAA Four-Diamond rating, but the Grand Floridian Resort & Spa is considered by Disney as their highest-tier, luxury flagship resort.
As you may have guessed, Disney’s Value Resorts are geared towards families on a budget and offer fun and fully-adequate in-park accommodations.
Disney’s Moderate Resorts fall somewhere between Value and Deluxe in terms of cost, room size, transportation options, and other amenities.
With that background information out of the way, then let’s now review the hotel properties in greater detail with this Disney World Resort Comparison guide.
