One of my favorite things about the Walt Disney World resort is the wide selection of resorts you can stay at during your visit. Every hotel on the property is outstanding, and no matter what your price range is, you’ll find a resort. Here’s a few of my favorite resorts. There’s also a surprise at the end of the list!
Port Orleans – Riverside
Have you ever wanted to stay in a mansion? Well, it’s not quite it, but it’s pretty close at the Port Orleans – Riverside. You’ll stay in a building crafted to be like a southern mansion. You get all the elegance and charm of a mansion at a moderate resort hotel price! You can also stay in the “backwoods” away from the fancy mansions.
Animal Kingdom Lodge
The Animal Kingdom Lodge has a perk no other resort has: you can wake up with the animals. They won’t be in your room, but they’ll be close. Some rooms at the Animal Kingdom Lodge look over a private savannah just for the resort. If you’re adventurous, and have got the cash, you can wake up and take a safari into the savannah in the morning. Of course, this resort is deemed “deluxe,” so it will cost a bit more than lower resorts.
So, your trip to Disney World doesn’t mean you can go to Yellowstone, right? Wrong! Get the experience of staying in a National Park Lodge at the Wilderness Lodge. It’s a grand hotel with amazing wood work and architecture. This is also the place for the outdoor adventurer to stay. Hike the many trails or take a boat out on the water. Fort Wilderness campground is also nearby, which also provides lots of fun activities. The Wilderness Lodge is a Deluxe resort.
The Caribbean Beach Resort is a moderate resort, but it is beautiful. Despite being one of the largest resorts at Disney World, it still feels very quaint. There are different “villages” around the 45 acre lake. Each village has its own pool, and there is a large pool with a slide and such next to the resort’s food court. The park is also right by Epcot and the Hollywood Studios, so the trip over to them is less than 10 minutes. If you don’t plan to spend much time at your hotel, but still want a nice resort to come back to in the night, I recommend the Caribbean Beach. It is still my favorite Disney World Resort.
