Comparing Value Resorts to Other Resorts

Disney Value Resorts

The Disney Value Resorts are clean and economical. The theming is well done, but unsophisticated. The amenities are limited compared to moderate or deluxe resorts. The hotels have nice pools, but no slide or hot tub. The rooms are 260 square feet, contain two double beds and can sleep up to four plus an infant in a crib. The resorts have food courts and no sit down restaurants. Luggage service is available, but you will likely have to wait for it.

The resorts are large and can require a lot of walking. It is difficult to find tranquility here as the resorts are very popular with families and large tour groups. The resorts have a motel feel with exterior walkways. Family suites at the All Star Music and Art of Animation Resorts can sleep up to 6.

Disney Moderate Resorts

The Disney Moderate Resorts are larger than Value Resorts at approximately 314 square feet. The amenities are more diverse and include a marina, sit down restaurant, pools with slides and hot tubs.

Disney Deluxe Resorts

The Disney Deluxe Resorts offer the most amenities and recreational options, but they are very expensive. Rooms are between 344 to 440 square feet. These resorts are very high quality for a premium.
