The Perks of a Disney Deluxe Resort
We spend most of our energy on this blog finding ways for you to save money at Disney World. Whether that means digging up discount Disney tickets or uncovering the most cost-effective off-site accommodations and dining strategies. While saving you money is our number one priority, some readers may find that they want to splurge on one area of their vacation.
If you’re a gourmet food fan, then it may be worth it to you to book an evening for two at Victoria & Albert’s. If you love to fish, then booking a fishing excursion through the ESPN Wide World of Sports may be right up your alley. For many readers, that ‘splurge’ is spent on accommodations.
If you love living in the lap of luxury, then a few nights at a Disney Deluxe Resort such as the Grand Floridian or the Polynesian might be the part of your trip where you spend a little bit more. Here are a few of the perks of staying at a Disney Deluxe Resort:
- Easy Access to the Parks. All of the Deluxe Resorts are either within walking distance of the Magic Kingdom or are easily accessible with Disney’s free inner-park transportation.
- Breathtaking Design/Architecture. The Disney design team certainly didn’t skimp on any of its deluxe resorts. Visit the Polynesian, and you’ll really feel like you’ve stepped into a mini-Hawaii. Spend a few nights at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa and you’ll forget that your post-Victorian mansion is actually in the middle of every American child’s dream destination!
- The Pools. Yes, they’re really that amazing! The design, slides, and details of the pools in the Deluxe Resorts are so elaborate and fanciful that you might mistake them for being water parks!
Prices are definitely steep – the Grand Floridian starts at $540 per night – but the experience is unlike anything else.
