Deluxe Resorts


Disney’s Deluxe resorts add both convenience and a touch of elegance to your vacation. True hotel style buildings with multiple quality restaurants and shopping, plus a plethora of activities. All of this is great for relaxing day away from the parks, but it is the close proximity to the action that makes this class of resorts very popular. The Contemporary, Polynesian, Grand Floridian monorail loop offers quick and convenient access to Magic Kingdom and you can even watch the fireworks from your resort. Beach Club/Yacht Club and Boardwalk Inn are within walking distance to Epcot through a special side entrance and only a short boat ride away from Hollywood Studios. You definitely pay for the convenience, but for many it is well worth the cost. Watching for seasonal discounts and/or choosing a less than ideal room view can help in that regard. My one issue with many of the Deluxe resorts is that their restaurants have become destination for other visitors and resort guests have to compete for tables. I do not typically make a lot of dinner reservations, but recently it has become a necessity when I stay at a Deluxe resort.
