    Can you suggest some of your favorite deluxe resort rooms targeted to couples rather than large groups? I want luxury, but I don’t need multiple bedrooms. Also, when are the slowest weeks of year?

    Hi LoriJean,

    Thank you so much for visiting planDisney with your question! Taking an adults-only trip to Walt Disney World is wonderful. My husband and I have visited as a couple in the past and we really enjoy the ability that this affords for us to slow down and focus just on what we want to do. I am happy to help you to think about planning this trip!

    It sounds like you are wanting to stay in a Walt Disney World deluxe resort hotel. The deluxe resort hotels offer so much in terms of amenities, detailed themes, and delicious dining. I do not think that you can go wrong with any of them! Of course, at all Walt Disney World resort hotels there will be children; however, you can choose the resort that is the most appealing to you. I might suggest Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge for this trip. I enjoy the rich and dark décor at this resort hotel, and it offers many dining options that I think of as slightly more adventurous and upscale, including the amazing Jiko - The Cooking Place which offers an amazing South African wine list. Another great option is Disney's Beach Club Resort. I love the beachy and relaxed theme at this resort. I also enjoy the location of this resort. You can walk to so many places around Crescent Lake, including EPCOT and Disney's BoardWalk. This opens up a whole world of entertainment and dining options!

    When you are searching for a resort hotel room, I suggest that you take a look at the configuration of beds and number of adults that the room can sleep. If you are traveling as a couple and only need one bed, the rooms with a king bed can be great because they open up space often taken up by a second bed in the room. For a true splurge at these deluxe resort hotels, you might look for the Club Level Concierge. These rooms give you access to a club level lounge and a whole next level of luxury. My husband and I have stayed in a Club Level Concierge room on special trips such as a celebration trip for my graduation, and it absolutely added to the pampering we felt. You can check for both the number of beds as well as if there is Club Level Concierge available when you check the room rates at any of the deluxe resort hotels online.

    In terms of the slowest weeks of the year, there truly is no "off-season" at Walt Disney World any longer. People really do travel to Walt Disney World at all times of year. That said, there are some guidelines that you can follow to help you go at a less busy time of year. For example, and especially since you are traveling as a couple, avoid when children are typically out of school. Families tend to travel when children are off of school, including times such as summer, spring break, and the winter holidays. Also, avoid times that are three-day weekends or other holidays where many people might have a holiday from work. A time that there tends to be lower crowds is September, when there aren't many holidays and children have typically just returned to school. You also probably will want to check if Walt Disney World is hosting any runDisney events when you are planning to travel as these can also draw crowds.

    I would love to help you plan more LoriJean; however, I am limited in the amount of space I have to answer. Please feel free to write back with any further questions!
