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.

Pros: MY GRANDKIDS AND I ENJOYED THE ARCADE AT THE ARRIVAL DESK AREA. I WAS VERY SURPRISED AT THE COST...VERY REASONABLE. THE STATUES THROUGHOUT THE GROUNDS WERE AMAZING.
Cons: WOULD HAVE LIKED TO HAVE A MICROWAVE IN THE ROOM.

It was awesome! Stayed in the Little Mermaid building. The room decor was great and the tiles in the shower took you "Under the Sea".

Pros: All of it!
Cons: Can't think of anything.
