About Walt Disney World Resort Brand Hotels

When you are in the happiest place on earth, this is where you stay and rest. The Walt Disney World Resort offers 28 hotels and lodges across a wide range of options and prices for all vacationers of all shapes and sizes, across the sprawling site in Orlando, Florida.

As part of Walt Disney’s grand vision, the first hotels - the Contemporary Resort Hotel and Polynesian Village - were constructed in time for the opening of the theme park in 1971. Through the years and decades since, several hotels have sprung to cater to different people and families of different tastes.

The hotels are classified into four categories: the Value Resorts have the smallest price tags and smallest rooms, but its colorful design makes it in a way the most Disney of all. The Moderate Resorts have larger, more standard rooms with more dining and entertainment options, while the Deluxe Resorts are the most luxurious with the most amenities and the biggest price tag. While all of the Deluxe resort hotels have achieved an AAA Four Diamond rating, Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa is considered the highest tier flagship luxury resort on the Walt Disney World Resort complex. The fourth one, Disney Vacation Club Resorts, is a collection of varied lodges and villas operated by a different Disney subsidiary.

Exceptional
Pros: Location, value. The Pool is nice and lot of food options in the cafeteria-style eatery. Very family friendly.

Good
Pros: Theming was exceptional. It will be nicer once the Disney Skyliner is running.
Cons: The distance to get to transportation and dining (no coffee in room, no microwave) dampened our experience. The main pool doesn't have its featured music underwater. Cast members were unsure how long it would be out.
UserJennifer

Pros: The hotel was very clean. Pools were large and clean. There are games and movies at the pool, weather permitting. Very close to Disney parks and you get extra perks when staying at a Disney hotel.

Exceptional
Pros: Had an amazing experience at The Art Of Animation Resort. We were located in the Little Mermaid section. We encountered wonder cast members who provided excellent customer service!
Cons: Our internet did not work in our room for texting and sending photos to family back at home. It would not work on Disney WiFi or Verizon wireless. All messages failed to send. Other than that it was a perfect stay!
UserVerified Hotel Guest

Exceptional
Pros: We especially liked the setting and theming - we stayed in the Little Mermaid section. The food court was great and having 3 pools to use was also a huge plus.
Cons: The room was a bit on the small side although for 2 senior adults it was adequate. If you had a party of 4 it would be very tight. I thought the carpet was filthy and absolutely needed to be shampooed. Rule of thumb is always don't walk barefoot!

Pros: Absolutely love the theming of the rooms, outside buildings, and the colorful lobby. Liked that they still give shampoo bottles out too.
Cons: Wish the little mermaid rooms would be renovated like Pop century but keeping the theming (I mostly want queen beds and no carpet) but otherwise great.

Very Good
Pros: Decore, pool, versatility of the room, transportation to parks
Cons: We had a water leak in our room. We were the last bus stop nearly everywhere, so the walk was always long. Food at the resort just fair. No cell phone reception in the room & my daughter's room had no internet.

Pros: Theming was exceptional. It will be nicer once the Disney Skyliner is running.
Cons: The distance to get to transportation and dining (no coffee in room, no microwave) dampened our experience. The main pool doesn't have its featured music underwater. Cast members were unsure how long it would be out.

Pros: The hotel was very clean. Pools were large and clean. There are games and movies at the pool, weather permitting. Very close to Disney parks and you get extra perks when staying at a Disney hotel.

Pros: Had an amazing experience at The Art Of Animation Resort. We were located in the Little Mermaid section. We encountered wonder cast members who provided excellent customer service!
Cons: Our internet did not work in our room for texting and sending photos to family back at home. It would not work on Disney WiFi or Verizon wireless. All messages failed to send. Other than that it was a perfect stay!

Pros: We especially liked the setting and theming - we stayed in the Little Mermaid section. The food court was great and having 3 pools to use was also a huge plus.
Cons: The room was a bit on the small side although for 2 senior adults it was adequate. If you had a party of 4 it would be very tight. I thought the carpet was filthy and absolutely needed to be shampooed. Rule of thumb is always don't walk barefoot!
