A vacation in Walt Disney World is made even more magical by staying on property at a Disney Resort. With over twenty options to choose from, each Disney Resort features a unique theme, dining options, shopping, amenities, pools, Disney transportation, and scenery. The Disney Resorts are broken down into three price categories allowing guests an easier choice when booking a Disney vacation so long as they know their budget for accommodations. Deluxe Resorts are the most expensive and opulent, Value Resorts offer the best deals, and Moderate Resorts fall somewhere in the middle. The Deluxe Disney Resorts are beautiful places with plenty of experiences and opportunities to enjoy the Disney magic. From special views of the theme parks and sweeping lobbies to live entertainment and amazing pool areas, Deluxe Disney Resorts are amazing places to stay at while enjoying a Walt Disney World vacation. Here are eight reasons Disney Deluxe Resorts are worth the extra money!

1. The View From Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort

One of the most popular Deluxe Disney Resorts can be found nestled on the shores of Seven Seas Lagoon offering the tropical feel of the South Seas. Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort transports guests to a tropical paradise through swaying palm trees, tiki touches, and white sand beaches. A highlight of staying at the resort is being able to look out across Seven Seas Lagoon to enjoy sweeping views of the Magic Kingdom including Cinderella Castle, Space Mountain, and the Astro Orbiter.

2. Being On The Monorail Line

For guests who spend most of their time in the Magic Kingdom and Epcot, staying in a Disney Resort on the monorail line is a huge perk. The Resort Loop of the monorail line runs directly from the Magic Kingdom to Disney’s Contemporary Resort, Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, and Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa. Guests who wish to visit Epcot via the monorail need only make a quick and easy transfer at Disney’s Transportation and Ticket Center.

3. Stormalong Bay

Guests who stay at Disney’s Yacht Club Resort or Disney’s Beach Club Resort can enjoy exclusive access to one of the best pool areas in all of Walt Disney World. Stormalong Bay spans over three acres and is the ultimate place to cool off, splash around, and relax in the sun. Guests can enjoy an elevated platform to catch some rays, a lazy river, water slides, hot tubs, a sand bottomed pool with zero depth entry, and plenty of sunny places to kick back and relax.

4. The Savanna At Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge

Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge features a beautiful lobby with dark wood paneling, authentic African art, and a massive glass wall featuring sweeping views of the exclusive savanna. Guests who stay at the Disney Resort can enjoy waking up each morning to an African savanna right outside of their window! With animals like giraffes and zebras wandering freely, the view of the savanna at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge is something that can’t be missed!

5. The Lobby At Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort And Spa

The flagship Deluxe Disney Resort can also be found nestled on the shores of Seven Seas Lagoon and features a Victorian opulence that will leave guests amazed. Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa is modeled after the famous Coronado Hotel in California and features white buildings with signature red roofs. The lobby features a massive airy atrium full of Victorian opulence, live orchestral music, and plenty of places to relax and enjoy the atmosphere.

6. The Boardwalk’s Entertainment

Guests who enjoying staying at one of the Deluxe Disney Resorts on Crescent Lake can enjoy being close to amazing entertainment on The Boardwalk. Themed after turn of the century Atlantic City, The Boardwalk is full of dining experiences, live entertainment like jugglers and performers, and plenty of places to have fun. Guests can stroll down to Jelly Rolls, a duel piano bar where the drinks are delicious and the music is always great or simply sit on one of the benches and enjoy the white popcorn lights and beautiful ambiance of Crescent Lake.

7. Walking To Epcot

Another perk of staying at a Deluxe Disney Resort on Crescent Lake is being within walking distance of Epcot. Guests can take a leisurely stroll each morning to arrive at an entrance to the park in the rear of World Showcase and simply stroll back to their resort each evening. For those who are too tired to walk or are looking to relax, there are also small boats which continuously run throughout the day back and forth between Epcot and nearby Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

8. Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto

Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort is home to some amazing dining options, and a new lounge location allows guests to fully embrace the spirit of the islands. Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto is named after the famous head salesman from the Jungle Cruise in the Magic Kingdom and serves up small bites and delicious cocktails for guests to enjoy. The lounge also features special effects which are triggered each time a guest orders a specialty cocktail, making it a fun and entertaining place to kick back and relax while on a Walt Disney World vacation!
