Top 10 Tips: How to Select the Best Resort for your Family

Walt Disney World Resort Hotels

  1. Our Panelists have come up with a Top 10 list to help families, large and small, select the best Walt Disney World Resort hotel

    1. Choose your location based on your family’s itinerary for the week. Planning on spending a great deal of time at Magic Kingdom Park? Check out one of the resort hotels on the Monorail line.  But if Disney’s Hollywood Studios and EPCOT are calling your name, a resort on Disney Skyliner path might be the best choice for you.

    2. From Value, Moderate, or Deluxe Resort hotels, Walt Disney World Resort has hotels for all budgets.

     3. If relaxation is included in your vacation, be sure to check out a resort with a pool that will please you and the members of your family! One of our panelists’ favorite pools can be found at Disney’s Beach Club resort!

     4. It may sound odd, but check out the bathroom space in resort hotel pictures online. A bathroom in a separate room makes getting ready easier for mom and dad while little ones sleep.

     5. Themes! Yes, Walt Disney World Resort hotels have themes and your family can choose their favorite. Nostalgic resorts, island resorts, and even New England themed getaways await you and your family.

     6. For convenience purposes, our panelists often select their resort based on the restaurants located onsite. An evening meal at your hotel might be the perfect way to unwind after a busy day.

     7. How many will be traveling in your party? If it’s you and your extended family, why not consider a one, two or three-bedroom villa at one of the many Disney Vacation Club resorts. And did you know all Guests may book a reservation at a Disney Vacation Club property?

     8. The time of year can influence many Guests on the Resort they choose. From fall decorations to holiday wreaths and lights, each resort has its own unique and beautiful decorations.

     9. If you have a preschooler obsessed with different modes of transportation, choose a Walt Disney World Resort hotel that offers multiple ways to get around. Buses and boats and a monorail - oh my! And let’s not forget Disney Skyliner!

     10. No matter the resort you choose, make the choice together as a family. Having everyone involved in the planning process will help start the magic before you arrive on property.
