The Grandest Accommodations Money Can Buy at Walt Disney World

Disney's Riviera Resort

From simple value resort rooms to splurge-worthy deluxe resorts, Walt Disney World has it all!  Chances are that budget plays a significant role in your choice of accommodations at Walt Disney World.  But have you ever wondered where you could stay if money was no object?  Here are some of the grandest accommodations available at WDW – for those lucky few who can afford them!  Dream away…


1. Disney’s Yacht Club Resort

The waterpark-esque Stormalong Bay is always a great reason to book a stay at Disney’s Yacht Club Resort, but the swanky Captain’s Deck Suite might just give the fabulous pool a run for its money.  At nearly 2,400 square feet (yes, bigger than many guests’ houses), this is the most exclusive suite at the Yacht Club.  It has two bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, and a hidden area that gives guests tons of privacy.  You can enjoy an octagonal foyer, a great room with hardwood floors, walk-in closet, dining room and full kitchen, plus your own garden patio.  A getaway at this nautical retreat will cost upwards of $2,000 a night.

2. Disney’s Contemporary Resort

If you’re looking for grand accommodations with a retro flair AND you want to be within walking distance of the Magic Kingdom, then Disney’s Contemporary Resort is for you!  We wouldn’t say no to any room here, but the renowned Presidential Suite is the resort’s true star.  This two-bedroom suite is famous for its balcony, which is said to have the best of any resort on property, allowing guests to enjoy magnificent vistas of Magic Kingdom (and, of course, nightly fireworks over Cinderella Castle).  There’s also a shower with multiple jets, a dining room, whirlpool and a full-sized fridge.

3. Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa

Nightly accommodations at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa start at well over $500, and one look at the crystal chandeliers, baby grand piano, and extravagant Victorian theming in the lobby will tell you that this flagship resort is about as grand as you can get!  To really feel pampered, you can splurge on a Royal Palm Club Level Suite, which will be exactly as posh and sophisticated as you’d expect!  It will also give you VIP access to the Royal Palm Club Lounge, as well as other extras including a parlor, wet bar and exclusive concierge desk.

4. Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge

With fine dining, impressive African design and artwork, and acres of savannah offering unparalleled animal viewing, Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge definitely makes the list for the grandest digs your money can buy on property.  To really feel like you’re on safari in Africa, book the Royal Asante Suite, where you won’t even have to leave your room to have an animal encounter!  Say hello to a giraffe from the comfort of your wrap-around terrace, enjoy the luxury of a freestanding bathtub and walk-in shower, and kick back with friends and family in the unique, round living room to check out the collection of original artwork.  The experience will run you upwards of $2000 a night, so be sure to bring some friends to share the cost!

5. Disney’s Wilderness Lodge

For those who enjoy luxury with a dose of rustic charm, Disney’s Wilderness Lodge may just be the best resort in Walt Disney World.  Choose the Yosemite (Vice-Presidential) Suite or the Yellowstone (Presidential) Suite to take the luxury up a notch.  You’ll enjoy VIP access to the club-level lounge, with perks like daily coffee and continental breakfast, hors d’oeuvres in the afternoon, and snacks all day long.  You’ll love the western-style theming throughout the suites, not to mention the relaxing views out over the pool and Bay Lake!

7. Disney’s Boardwalk Inn

The Presidential Steeplechase Suite at Disney’s Boardwalk Inn takes luxury to a whole new level – for those who can afford the $2,500 price tag!  We’re talking crystal chandelier, mosaic tile floors, Carrera marble, and crown moulding. The suite contains two bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms, and it’s 2,170 square feet – fit for royalty!  Posh Victorian-era style abounds throughout, from the huge living room featuring gold sofas to the kitchen with its own wet bar and service entrance.  Add to that balconies running the length of the suite, with views over the Boardwalk and Crescent Lake, and you have a truly grand accommodation!

8. Four Seasons Resort Orlando

To really feel like a VIP, you’ll need an entire floor to yourself, obviously.  The Ultimate Suite Experience at Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World Resort allows you – and your friends and family, if you’re feeling generous – free reign of the whole 16th floor, combining several suites and guest rooms, and comes in at a whopping $70,000.  The Royal Suite is the gem of the floor, where you can take in the fireworks from the stunning wrap-around terrace of the Royal Suite, blast your favorite movie in the sound-proof media room, and at the end of a long day in the parks, have your private butler draw you the perfect bath (bubbles, anyone?).
