    Hello, I feel claustrophobic in the Disney World Value Resorts and most Moderates. Do only the Deluxe have balconies? Do any of the Value or Mod resorts have windows that open? Thank you so much!

    Hiya, Jacqueline!

    Welcome to planDisney! I am delighted to hear that you are planning a visit to The Most Magical Place on Earth early next year. And being a Guest of a Walt Disney World Resort Collection hotel is sure to add a little extra pixie dust to your stay. You will be able to enjoy exclusive benefits like extra theme park hours and complimentary transportation throughout Walt Disney World Resort. Each resort also offers elaborate theming and immersive Disney magic. And while each of the resorts is unique, there are some amenities that are standard across resort levels. 

    Moderate and value resorts do not offer patio or balcony spaces. You will find these options in most rooms at Deluxe Resort Hotels and Deluxe Villas. It is important to note that some deluxe accommodations do not offer balconies or patios. For example, the first and third floors of Disney's Polynesian Village Resort have private outdoor spaces, while the second-floor rooms do not. Disney's Beach Club Resort offers some rooms that have "Juliette style" balconies with standing room, but no seating. Here is a list of Deluxe Resorts and Villas that offer outdoor space for all rooms and suites. 
    • Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort 
    • Boulder Ridge Villas
    • Copper Creek Villas and Cabins
    • Disney's Contemporary Resort (Main Tower only, Garden Wing rooms do not have balconies) 
    • Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas
    • Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge
    • Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa
    • Disney's Old Key West Resort 
    • Disney's Polynesian Villas and Bungalows (The studio rooms all offer outdoor space, while second-floor standard rooms do not.)
    • Disney's Riviera Resort
    • Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa
    • Disney's Wilderness Lodge
    • The Villa's at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa
    While many resorts in the deluxe category offer outdoor space, all resorts at each level do have one thing in common. The windows in the hotel rooms do not open. So if fresh air is a must during your hotel stay, I recommend booking one of the above locations that offer outdoor space and sliding doors!

    I hope your upcoming adventure is memorable and magical!
    We'll see ya real soon!
