    Hello! Do any of the deluxe resorts or villas have rooms where the entrance is from the outside (as opposed to an indoor hallway). We are trying to avoid elevators. Thank you!

    Hi Margot,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, where we absolutely love answering your Disney vacation questions! I am happy to assist you with your quest to find a Deluxe Resort Villa with an exterior entrance. My family and I recently stayed at Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort and Spa and absolutely loved the exterior entrance to our 1-Bedroom Villa. In my opinion, it makes access so much easier, and if you are on a ground floor, the use of an elevator unnecessary. Plus, Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort and Spa is a wonderful resort, with an incredible spa, On the Rocks Pool Bar located at the wonderful High Rock Spring pool, and it is just a quick walk from all of the incredible shopping, dining and entertainment of Disney Springs

    Another great option for a resort with an exterior entrance to your Deluxe Resort Villa is Disney’s Old Key West Resort, another fabulous resort that offers the laidback charm of the Florida Keys. At this resort, you can grab a quick bite to eat to enjoy poolside from Good’s Food To Go or enjoy some home-style cooking from Olivia’s Café. You can also enjoy a refreshing beverage or cocktail poolside from Gurgling Suitcase, a cozy little Key West-style bar. 

    I highly recommend that you make your request for a ground-floor villa when you book your reservation. As with all requests, there is no guarantee, but the Front Desk Cast Member will do their best to honor all requests made for your reservation. I hope that this helps you to book your next stay in The Most Magical Place on Earth! Please stop back by the Disney Parks Moms Panel any time we can help answer your vacation questions.
