Which Properties Are Best for a Group?
It’s important to note that not all of Disney World’s resorts are as well suited for groups, and with more than thirty-two hotels on the Disney property, it can be a little overwhelming trying to choose which is right for you and your group.
In no particular order, here are six of the best hotels for groups on the Disney World property:
Art of Animation Resort Family Suites
You’ll see this hotel making a lot of top-ten lists, and for good reason. The suites can host up to six adults and the rooms are a bargain, considering what they offer. If you’re on a budget, this should be one of your top options. Kids will love all of the different animation-themed areas. The Art of Animation is a great fit for group accommodation and offers the perfect stay for your family or friends at Walt Disney World Resort.
Disney’s All-Star Music Resort
Another option for budget-conscious families and groups, the All-Star Music Resort is a fantastic option for up to six adults per room. Suites have a kitchenette so you can save a little cash by making some sandwiches or cooking up a simple breakfast to keep people happy and fed until the group is ready to depart.
Contemporary Resort’s Bay Lake Tower
For something a bit more upscale for larger groups, have a look at the Bay Lake Tower. Its villas can host groups of up to nine or twelve adults. Additionally, it offers monorail access to both Epcot and the Magic Kingdom, and the views are stunning. One side of the hotel has views of the Magic Kingdom, and the other side looks out over the beautiful Bay Lake.
Villas at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa
Another upscale option for the larger groups, the Grand Floridian offers a chance to spend your day relaxing and getting pampered with all the amenities the hotel has to offer. If you think your local spa has some nice equipment, wait until you see the options Disney can bring you. One side of the resort also overlooks the majestic Seven Seas Lagoon.
Polynesian Village Resort Villas & Bungalows
For those willing to spend extra for top-tier quality or corporations really wanting to let their employees know how much they’re valued, the Polynesian Resort is the way to go.
Studios host up to five adults, while the over-the-water bungalows can host up to eight. With a delightful South Pacific theme and multiple different dining and bar options, Polynesian Resort promises to fulfill that dream vacation to Bora Bora and Tahiti without ever having to leave the continental United States.
Treehouse Villas at Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort and Spa
Last on our list is the Saratoga Springs Resort. This property is designed after the famous Saratoga Springs, New York, home to a famous horse racing track and known as an upstate weekend getaway for the wealthier NYC crowd.
The Treehouse Villas are situated on a wooded property nearby so it’s a perfect place to walk around and escape the scorching Florida sun. The villas can hold up to nine adults and come with a full kitchen–you’ll feel like you’re staying at a forest lodge, surrounded by all the rich woodwork all around the property.
Here are a few other great resorts for groups that didn’t make our list:
- Disney’s Old Key West Resort
- Disney’s Riviera Resort
- Disney’s Port Orleans—Riverside Resort
- BoardWalk Inn Villas
- Animal Kingdom Lodge Villas
