    Can you please tell me, besides cost, are there anything that a Moderate or Deluxe Resort would give you that a Value Resort doesn't? I'm trying to decide where to stay.

    Hi Tina!

    Great question! I have stayed at over 14 of the different resorts and can summarize it all in one word: location! The hotels closest to the theme parks are mostly deluxe resorts such as Disney's Contemporary, Grand Floridian, Polynesian, Boardwalk, and Animal Kingdom Lodge to name a few. The deluxe and moderate resorts also offer table service restaurants which can be very convenient. Also, they offer different modes of transportation to the theme parks such as the monorail or boat, which can be quicker and offers a different experience in comparison to the bus transportation offered in the value resorts. Ultimately, I would recommend that you visit this page: Resort Hotels so that you may compare the amenities.  Hope this helps!

    It has been a pleasure assisting you! Let me know if I can help you with any other questions or recommend a resort!

    Happy Planning!
