To some, Walt Disney World isn’t just a theme park, it’s home!
Many guests make frequent trips to Florida to get their fill of Disney magic. Some visitors love to hop from resort to resort. While others pick one resort as their home base and return time and time again. We asked our readers one simple but difficult question: “If you could stay anywhere on Disney World property, what hotel would you pick?”
Answers ranged from Value all the way to Deluxe Resorts. Check out what Disney World resorts guests would love to visit!
We compiled a few of our reader’s responses from our Facebook page to give you an idea of the fan-favorite resorts on Disney World property. Hopefully, it will help you pick your resort stay for your next vacation!
Tristan loved the Wilderness Lodge because it has a ton of great amenities and is close to the Magic Kingdom. He explained that the resort is just “a boat ride away from the Magic Kingdom, but more tucked away and private than the monorail resorts. I also like their pool bar and restaurants. I have never stayed there, but have visited as a day guest, and I love the rustic aesthetic.”
Candy would love to visit the resort in fond memory of her mother. She responded, “Wilderness Lodge, my mom ALWAYS wanted to stay there for one of our trips but we could never afford it. I lost her in 2017 right after we got back from a Disney vacation. And I WILL at some time get to stay there for her.”
Lindsay would make her resort choice based on the nostalgia from her College Program internship with Disney, but ultimately her final decision is based on her family interests! “So I dream to stay at a suite at the Grand Floridian and did my CP there doing turndown in the main building, it would be a full circle moment. 😆 But I have little kids, so another one like the Polynesian would probably be much better suited for us.”
Gina also agreed that the Grand Floridian is her first choice because “it’s just beautiful and very elegant. It’s also a monorail ride or boat ride away from the magic kingdom, and a two monorail ride away from EPCOT!”
The majority of our readers would love to stay the Polynesian for the view of the castle and fun atmosphere. Tammy hits it home when she said that she loved “the ambiance and architecture. Truly feels like I have gone to the Islands. Especially like that it is on the monorail stops and …dole whips. 😍 “ We agree, we’d absolutely stay at the Polynesian for easy access to Dole Whips!
Kerry would love to return to the Polynesian for a chance to relive her childhood vacation. She stated, “I stayed there when I was 6 years old with my grandparents who took me to Disney for the first time in 1986. A special trip and would love to stay there again someday.”
Not everyone chose the Deluxe Resorts! Some guests love the feeling of staying in a Disney themed Value or Moderate Resort. There were many, many votes for Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – Riverside and French Quarter.
Jason loved the idea of staying at Disney’s Saratoga Springs Treehouse Villas, but followed up with the fact that he still loves Port Orleans! “I have dreamed of an extended stay at the treehouses but I am always happy and comfortable with any room on the top floor of Port Orleans French Quarter near the boat launch/pool area.“
A lot of Disney fans love the Value Resorts like Disney’s Art of Animation and the three All-Star Resorts. Jennifer stated that the hotel fits her budget and most of her time is spent in the parks anyway! “I always stayed at the all-star hotels because it was Disney at an affordable price because I don’t stay in my room much!”
And some readers couldn’t decide on just one resort! Terry said that “I’ve always wanted to stay at the Poly. But I’d take Animal Kingdom for the views. I think a lot of people forget the Wilderness Lodge too! Oh wait! Was I supposed to pick just one???” We feel you, Terry! There are SO many good choices!
The great thing about a Disney World vacation is that there are a ton of resorts to choose from. The varying themes and price levels give guests plenty of options for their stay. And if Disney isn’t your style, there are a lot of off-property hotels to choose from!
