    Hello! My family and I are currently planning our next trip to WDW! We have never stayed in a WDW resort before. We are looking for a villa with 2 separate bedrooms. What are the best resort options to be looking at? Thank you!!

    Welcome, Madison!  

    Thanks for reaching out for advice on your first stay at the Walt Disney World Resort! I adore staying on property, and I think you’ll be hooked from this first time experiencing it too. 2-Bedroom Villas are offered on Disney Vacation Club properties, but you don’t have to be a Disney Vacation Club Member to stay there. I’m excited to share some of my favorites with you for a special first stay.

    All 2-Bedroom Villas will have two separate sleeping rooms with private bathrooms, as well as additional sleeping space in the main living room. These sprawling suites also feature a full kitchen and private laundry facilities. You truly cannot go wrong with any of these beautiful resorts, though one style and location may suit your family’s preferences more than another. I advise you to reserve one of these Deluxe Villas soon, as availability is limited. Here are some of my favorites:  

    • Disney’s Riviera Resort is centrally located with Disney Skyliner access to both EPCOT and Disney’s Hollywood Studios. This gorgeous resort is styled like the European boutique hotels of the French and Italian riviera and offers a touch of both comfort and glamour.
    • The Villas at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa is Disney’s flagship resort, located next to Magic Kingdom Park. This classic family resort is the epitome of laid-back luxury and offers monorail or watercraft access to several nearby resorts for many dining options.
    • Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge offers villas in both the Jambo House and Kidani Village sides of the sprawling resort. This is the most unique resort on property, where you can experience authentic African culture through their displayed art and many children’s activities or view amazing animals on the savannah.

    Once you browse availability for a 2-Bedroom Villa, you may also consider reserving two separate regular guest rooms or two studios at a Disney Vacation Club property. The full kitchen is an incredible feature in these 2-Bedroom Villas but if you feel you wouldn’t use that, you may find the value of two connecting rooms to be a good match for your family. For my family’s upcoming fall trip, we have two studio rooms booked so we can each have our own small kitchenette features, but the total cost is more efficient for us than a full 2-Bedroom Villa for this trip.  

    I hope this has you feeling excited and energized to finalize your search for a practically perfect on-property stay, Madison. Be sure to take advantage of all the benefits from staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel – my favorite is Early Theme Park Entry, where we are one jump ahead of the crowds for a great start to a busy theme park day.

    Please let us know how else we can help you make the most of this special vacation – we love to share our tips and insights, so don’t be a stranger to planDisney!

    Wishing you a magical stay,
