List of Walt Disney World Resort Hotels
A Walt Disney World Resort hotel can almost be as much fun to visit as one of the theme parks! Each Resort has its own theme, with various levels of dining, entertainment, and recreation. All of the Walt Disney World Resort hotels include the perk of Early Theme Park Entry.
But with 30 or so Walt Disney World Resorts to choose from, which Resort is the best one for you?
Disney World Resorts are divided into price categories with amenity levels to match.
Amenities at Value Resorts include food courts, swimming pools, and complimentary Disney transportation, such as buses or Skyliner. This is Disney’s category for the lowest tier of pricing. For more information on these Resorts, visit our Value Resort Main Page.
Value Resorts include:
Amenities at Moderate Resorts include full-service restaurants, lounges, swimming pools with a slide and hot tub, and complimentary Disney Transportation, such as buses, boats, or Skyliner. This is Disney’s second-lowest tier for pricing. For more information on these resorts, check out our Moderate Resorts Main Page.
Moderate Resorts include:

Amenities include larger rooms, full-service restaurants, lounges, valet parking, elaborate swimming pools, and complimentary Disney transportation, such as the Monorail, Skyliner, boats, or buses. The Deluxe Resorts are Disney’s most expensive hotels. With a few exceptions, these hotels are the only ones to be able to utilize the Extended Evening Theme Park Entry perk.

The immersive Star Wars-themed resort is a NEW option for Disney World visitors. The Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser is technically a hotel option, but it lends itself more toward a complete experience. Disney calls it a “2-night, immersive adventure,” and the Galatic Starcruiser opened on March 1st, 2022. It is the most highly-themed Resort that Disney has ever built, and it promises to transport guests into the world of Star Wars for an experience like no other. Guests aboard Galactic Starcruiser will not need to purchase an admission ticket to Hollywood Studios in order to experience the “port day” in Galaxy’s Edge. This excursion is included in the price of your two-day voyage.
Amenities at these resorts offer full-service restaurants, in-room kitchen facilities, in-room laundry in many rooms, luggage service, swimming pools, on-site recreation, front-door parking, flexible room arrangements, bus, boat, or Skyliner transportation. The price for DVC Villas is comparable to Deluxe Resorts, but can also exceed in price when booking a multi-room villa. DVC Villa Resorts have access to Extended Evening Theme Park Hours.
