    What is the difference between a villa and a suite? Is there an easy way to compare across hotels? I'm looking for at least 2 bathrooms, 1 bedroom, a living area & kitchen.

    Hi Heidi! Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel. If you're looking for all the comforts of home away from home while on vacation, you definitely want to opt for a villa.

    Villa's come standard as part of the Disney Vacation Club resorts. They come equipped with at least 2 bathrooms, a living area, a washer/dryer, and the best part...a fully equipped kitchen! I've become spoiled by these deluxe amenities. I love being able to stretch our vacation dollars by bringing our own groceries and cooking some meals in our villa. Plus with a washer and dryer there's no need to go home with dirty clothes - YEAH!

    A 2-bedroom villa at most Disney Vacation Club resorts will accommodate up to 9 guests, so there's plenty of room for a large family with at least 2 bathrooms, a living area and kitchen. You'll find a king bed in the master bedroom, 2 queen beds in the second bedroom and a sleeper sofa in the living room. In a standard 3-bedroom villa, there's room for up to 12 guests with a king-size bed in the master, 4 queen-size beds, 2 queen-size sleeper sofas, a large living/dining space, kitchen and multiple bathrooms.

    A standard hotel suite at Walt Disney World Resort usually includes a bedroom that is separated from a living area, as well as at least one private bathroom. On the Club Level, suites are larger and multiple bedrooms, bathrooms, a kitchenette and balcony/patios.

    Lastly, with a hotel suite you'll have daily Mousekeeping service, whereas there isn't daily Mousekeeping when you use Disney Vacation Club points to book your resort accommodations. Instead, you'll receive trash and towel service on day 4 for stays of 7 or less nights. If having your villa cleaned daily is something you want done during your stay, you can always pay for those services. Check with the front desk for the specific cost.

    I hope your upcoming Disney vacation is magical and memorable!
