Disney Deluxe Villas offer guests of Disney World a chance to relax in a spacious, comfortable setting with the amenities of home.

The deluxe villas are primarily a feature of the Disney Vacation Club, where frequent visitors can buy into a timeshare location at Disney World — but non-DVC members can still book Deluxe Villas to stay in. And don’t worry, you do not have to attend a timeshare presentation to stay in a villa.

DVC is an investment for major Disney addicts to enjoy their stay with the same accommodations they’re familiar with. Renting a villa as a Guest is a great way to try it out without making a major investment, or to just enjoy a larger room (with a few more conveniences) for your trip.

What are the Disney Villas like?

The Villas offer spacious accommodations with many amenities, similar to a suite in a traditional hotel. And while many Disney resorts have suites, only twelve resorts offer villas for guests, who can often enjoy a peaceful view of water, woodlands, or fairways.

There are different-sized Villas of one-, two-, or three-bedrooms (also known as Grand Villas), with the largest accommodating up to 12 guests. These spaces include a kitchen with a full refrigerator, oven, and microwave so you can prepare meals in your area with a nearby dining table so you can eat together. The Villas also include full bathrooms with whirlpool tubs and shower spaces and a working washer and dryer. Each Villa includes comfortable sleeping arrangements, including at least one king-size bed, and Villas with multiple bedrooms will often include queen-size beds as well.

There are also smaller “deluxe studios” that offer a bit of an upgrade from a standard hotel room, but don’t offer separate bedrooms. And you can stay in specialty villa types such as treehouses and bungalows.

Disney Deluxe Villas offer several ways to save money on your Disney Vacation:

  • Use your kitchen / kitchenette to cook breakfast or have a late-night snack in the room without having to go to a restaurant
  • Avoid airline overweight baggage fees (or avoid checking a bag altogether) — pack light and do laundry in your room
  • Put the whole family in a spacious multi-room vacation home (with plenty of privacy) rather than booking separate hotel rooms

How much are the Disney Deluxe Villas?

Non-Disney Vacation Club members can book villas throughout the year. One-bedroom villas can range from $540 to $1,200 depending on the resort; two-bedrooms $1,200 to $2,300; and three-bedrooms $3,500 to $3,600 per night. The three bedrooms are often the most difficult to book. Visit the Disney World website or contact your travel agent to discover what availability they have for villas.

DVC members use their annual vacation points to book villas. To get points, they can expect to spend a one-time startup cost of around $30,000 to buy into ownership of a Deluxe Villa, plus any additional recurring expenses such as dues which could range to about $100 a month.

How many people can stay in a Disney Villa?
