    Hello! Talk Deluxe Resorts to me! We have always stayed at moderates in the past. What’s the most bang for your buck? Are there family suites? And we’d definitely want kid friendly- (maybe consider convenience to the parks too)!

    Welcome back to Disney Parks Moms Panel, Tess!

    Dreaming of a Deluxe Resort Hotel at a Walt Disney World is my favorite pastime. Let's explore!

    Two fantastic resorts are Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge and its "little sister" Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village. A savanna view room or villa provide so much entertainment, it may be hard to leave. Guests here may enjoy amenities at both hotels, doubling the fun. Both offer 1-2 Bedroom Suites or Villas, giving you more room once "home". Plus, Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park is so close, it's just a 5-minute bus ride away!

    Next to the magic of Magic Kingdom Park is Disney's Contemporary Resort. Some perks here include the convenience of the Resort Monorail, Theme Park View rooms (great for watching Happily Ever After in your PJs), and multiple dining options including the iconic Chef Mickey's. 1-2 Bedroom Suites are available or you can enjoy more space in a studio or Villa at the adjacent Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort. Both of these are an easy 10-minute walk to Magic Kingdom, too--a great option in addition to the monorail.

    If you'll spend lots of time at Disney's Hollywood Studios or EPCOT, consider Disney's Beach Club Resort. There, you'll enjoy the spectacular Stormalong Bay (it's 3 acres big...seriously cool), easy access to Disney Skyliner, all of the dining, shopping, and entertainment offered at Disney's BoardWalk, as well as the perk that EPCOT's International Gateway is just steps away. Disney's Hollywood Studios is also accessible by Friendship Water Launch or an easy 15-minute walk. 1- and 2-Bedroom Suites are available.

    More perks? All studios in a Deluxe Villa Resort feature a kitchenette; all Villas include a full kitchen, washer/dryer, and some offer 2-3 bathrooms.

    As you can see, there are so many fabulous options, all of which will make your trip even more magical. 

    Be sure to send us more questions as you plan, Tess. We love to help!
