Discover the Unmatched Luxury of Disney Deluxe Resorts

Embarking on a Walt Disney World® Resort vacation is exhilarating. With over 25 hotels on the property, choosing the right one can be overwhelming. However, the Disney Deluxe Resorts and Villas offer exceptional benefits that can elevate your vacation experience. From prime locations to luxurious comforts and exclusive perks, here’s why staying at a Disney Deluxe Resort is a decision you won’t regret.

Prime Location and Unparalleled Convenience

The convenience of staying close to the magic is a significant advantage of Disney Deluxe Resorts. Many of these resorts are within walking distance of at least one theme park. This makes it easy to take a break and return to the park without hassle. Imagine watching the Magic Kingdom® Park fireworks from your resort or enjoying a leisurely dinner with a spectacular view. These are experiences exclusive to Disney Deluxe Resorts.

Transportation options at Deluxe Resorts are plentiful, including the Monorail, boats, the Skyliner, and buses. These options are especially beneficial for families with strollers or ECVs. The Skyliner and Monorail allow you to board without folding your stroller, making your travel experience smoother and more enjoyable.

Luxurious Comfort and Spacious Accommodations

Returning to your resort after a full day at the park is an incomparable feeling. Disney Deluxe Resorts provide a haven of comfort with spacious rooms averaging 380 square feet. They feature amenities like double sinks in the bathrooms. Many rooms also offer balconies or patios, providing private outdoor spaces for relaxation.

For an even more luxurious experience, consider booking a room with Club Level access. Guests who book Club Level accommodations have access to a private lounge where they can indulge in complimentary daily refreshments, from continental breakfast to evening wine and beer selections to desserts, ensuring a truly incredible experience. Additionally, club Level attendants will get to know your family and their preferences, to ensure that your favorites are on hand. Plus, if you need last-minute assistance with anything parks related, they’re a wealth of information to have by your side to enhance your vacation.

  • Victoria & Albert’s at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa is a premier dining destination, consistently earning prestigious awards for its exquisite tasting menu and exceptional service. Winner of the prestigious AAA Five Diamond Award every year since 2000 and recipient of the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star award, this establishment boasts a world-class culinary team that crafts an elegant tasting menu highlighting seasonal flavors and ingredients from around the globe, using elevated techniques.

  • For families eager to dine with beloved Disney characters, enchanting Character Meals are available at many Disney Deluxe Resorts and Villas. These meals, offered at select restaurants for breakfast and dinner, require reservations but offer flexibility in meal style, whether à la carte, prix fixe, or buffet. While character interactions may vary, many meals feature appearances by Mickey and friends, dressed in themed attire that complements the restaurant’s ambiance. For a chance to meet more rare characters, schedule breakfast at ‘Ohana at the Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort to encounter Lilo and Stitch or enjoy dinner at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge Story Book Dining at Artist Point, where Snow White, some of the seven dwarves, and even the Evil Queen make appearances.

Extended Evening Hours for Extra Magic

One of the most exclusive perks of staying at a Disney Deluxe Resort is the Extended Evening Hours. On select nights, Deluxe Resort guests can enjoy two extra hours in select parks, allowing for shorter lines, fewer crowds, and more time to experience the magic.

During these hours, you can shop, ride attractions, and explore the parks with a more relaxed atmosphere. It’s also an excellent opportunity to capture those coveted photos of Cinderella Castle without the daytime crowds.
