Disney World offers a large assortment of room types.
And though you may have seen or heard of them all, we wanted to check out a few that you may have never stayed in before!
1. A 3-Bedroom Grand Villa
We’re sure that many of you, especially Disney Vacation Club members, have stayed in a one- or two-bedroom villa — there are many scattered around Walt Disney World. These are ideal for families or bigger groups as they come with amenities like a kitchen, living and dining areas, separate bedrooms, and a washer and dryer.
But what if you have a REALLY big group, or multiple families who want to stay all together? You can book one of the THREE-BEDROOM Grand Villas, that offer so much space, you’ll start to think that your own home is cramped!
These villas, which sleep 12, not only have three separate bedrooms and three full bathrooms, they have a fully equipped kitchen, dining room, living room, laundry facilities, and just about every amenity you could want. The three-bedroom villas at Old Key West are probably the largest, with 2375 square feet and two stories, so you really have room to spread out! You can find other Grand Villas, slightly (but only slightly!) smaller, at the BoardWalk Villas, Kidani Village, Copper Creek Villas (at Wilderness Lodge), Saratoga Springs, Grand Floridian Villas, and Bay Lake Tower at the Contemporary.
Such space and luxury don’t come cheap — you can expect to pay upwards of $1,500 per night, depending on season, view, and the resort itself. But if you’re splitting it among several families, or if you’re a DVC member who has saved up your points, it might become more affordable.
2. A Bungalow
The bungalows can be found on the Seven Seas Lagoon at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort. They sleep up to 8 and have two bedrooms with a small pool on their back porch.
Like the Villas, they have a kitchenette, spacious living and dining room spaces, separate bedrooms, and a washer and dryer.
These typically cost around $500-$600 a night.
3. A Cabin
Situated on the shore of Bay Lake, the 26 Copper Creek Cabins carry on the Pacific Northwest theming of the Wilderness Lodge. The two-bedroom cabins accommodate eight, with a master bedroom with king bed, a second bedroom with a queen bed, and a pull-out sofa in the living area that sleeps two. There is also a single (bunk-size) pull-down bed in the queen bedroom and a twin-size sleeper chair in the living room.
The decor of the cabins can be called “contemporary rustic” — they are light, bright, and feel very spacious. This is all achieved using natural products — granite, stone and wood. Although you’re within sight of the Magic Kingdom, these cabins feel very remote and private. Again, this comes at a price. Cabins range from around $1,900 to about $2,600 per night. (Holidays can climb to more than $3,300/night.)

4. Treehouse Villa
One of the most unusual types of accommodations at Walt Disney World are the Treehouse Villas at Saratoga Springs. Elevated 10 feet off the ground, these 60 villas feature three bedrooms and two baths and accommodate up to nine guests. There’s an open kitchen with a counter that seats three, while a separate dining table seats up to six.
Though the current treehouses are new construction, there were actually treehouses in this approximate location from 1975 to 2002, adjacent to what was then known as the Disney Institute. Now, they’re just a short walk away from the bustling Disney Springs Marketplace.
Like many of the other rooms we’ve been talking about here, the Treehouse Villas have a hefty price tag. We’re talking $850 up to $1400 per night, but again, because the villas can host more people, dividing that amount among several groups brings the price into the realistic range.
5. A Family Suite
Family suites can be lifesavers for larger families or bigger groups who don’t want to split up into separate rooms. You can find Family Suites at both the All-Star Music Resort and the Art of Animation Resort .
These suites will sleep six, and come with two full bathrooms — so important when you have a big group! They also have a kitchenette with microwave and small refrigerator plus a coffee maker.
A Family Suite at either the Art of Animation or All-Star Music runs between $250 to $400-plus a night, depending on season.
6. An Executive or Grand Suite
If you’re going to be holding some business meetings while you’re in Orlando, you might want to consider the suites at The Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Hotel. Did you even know they existed? Well, they do!
The Swan Executive Suites have one or two bedrooms. They also come with a conference table for six people and a 600-square-foot parlor. The Swan Grand Suite has an optional secondary guest room, as well as a wet bar, a 680-square-foot parlor room, and the six-seat conference table. You can find out more about these suites at swandolphin.com.
7. Cinderella Castle Suite
Can you imagine staying in the Cinderella Castle Suite? I know I can’t. The sad truth is that it is practically impossible to do. The room is typically only available in special circumstances or for certain contest winners.
The suite has a royal foyer, a royal bedchamber, a royal sitting room, and a royal bath. Inside you will also find magical details like the custom-made glass slipper, a magic mirror that transforms into a TV, and a ceiling featuring a dome of twinkling stars.
