Walt Disney World Resort Hotels Rank High In National Poll!

aklFor those of us who have experience the amazing resorts at Walt Disney World, it’s no surprise to learn that 6 of them were included in the top 15 hotels in all of Orlando.  And for anyone who doesn’t know, Orlando is a HUGE city with several theme parks in the surrounding area and, literally, thousands of of hotels.  So this is a VERY big deal and definitely something for fans of the Walt Disney World Resort to be excited about.

Of course, we all want to know which resorts made the top 15.  So wait no more, here’s the answer:

  • Coming in at number 7 is Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge.  With it’s 43 acre savannah and some of the most unique dining options in all of WDW Resort, it’s no surprise this resort ranked high.
  • At number 8, we have Disney’s Boardwalk Inn.  This fun resort recreates 1940’s Atlantic City with it’s own boardwalk complete with street performers, dining, and shopping options.  Plus it’s just a short stroll from EPCOT.
  • Ranking 9 and 10, respectively, are Disney’s Beach Club and Yacht Club Resorts.  These sister resorts offer an amazing pool (Stormalong Bay), great dining, and a gorgeous seaside atmosphere.  And they, too, are just a short walk from EPCOT.
  • Coming in at number 11 is Disney’s Wilderness Lodge Resort.  This lovely resort gives a nod to Yosemite Park (with its own spouting geyser) while adding magical Disney touches.  With a great pool, fun family activities, and a boat to take you right to the Magic Kingdom, this resort will hold a special place in your heart.grand
  • Last, but certainly not least, we have Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa coming in at number 12.  This glorious resort offers amazing views of the Magic Kingdom, fantastic dining, and is right on the monorail line.  Plus you’re surrounded by Victorian era charm everywhere you look.

Disney Art of Animation OLP TravelNow, these all happen to be Deluxe Resorts.  But don’t think that Disney has only made these resorts magical and amazing.  Disney offers amazing resort hotels for guests varying ‘flavors’ for all tastes and budgets.  Considering a WDW vacation but you’re on a smaller budget?  Then don’t hesitate to book your stay at a Disney Value Resorts.  These resorts are big on fun and magic at a more budget friendly price.  And with 4 different value resorts to choose from, you’re certain to find the perfect resort for your family.

Looking for a more moderately priced resort with a totally different ‘feel’ than the value CBRarialresorts?  Then I give you Disney’s Moderate Resorts.  These beautifully themed resorts offer amazing pathways to stroll, great dining, wonderful pools, and more.  And the price is just as it’s name implies:  moderate.  These resorts come in 4 ‘flavors’, from beachy to New Orleans to old Mexico to a good old fashioned camping trip (pitch a tent, bring your RV, or enjoy a cozy cabin).

ContemporaryMaybe you’re planning to stay Deluxe but haven’t settled on one of the great resorts I highlighted earlier.  Well don’t worry, Disney has several more to choose from!  From a south seas feel to futuristic, Disney has you covered.  And if you want a little more room to spread out, don’t hesitate to explore Disney Deluxe Villa Resorts.  With studio, 1 bedroom, 2 bedroom, and even 3 bedroom villas, you can enjoy more space while still experiencing all the magic of any Disney resort.
