6. Additional transportation options

Most of Disney’s deluxe resorts offer more transportation than just buses. You have may have any combination of boat, monorail, and skyliner transportation in addition to the usual Disney buses. This transportation will take you to Disney Springs, the parks and many of the other resorts. It is an amazing benefit to have additional transportation options. It can help you get more out of your Disney experience, get to your location faster and is a great way to explore the resorts differently than just taking the bus routes.

5. Villas options and what is different about them

Each of the deluxe resorts also have villas associated with them. You may be wondering what these are. The villas include different features and options than the usual guest rooms. The villas have studio, 1 bedroom and 2 bedroom options, so that you can accommodate families and groups of all sizes. Each of the rooms comes equipped with either a kitchenette or a full kitchen, so you can prepare meals during your stay. Many of the rooms also come with a washer and dryer right in the room so you can do laundry right there, too. These become great stays for long trips, so it is a great excuse to plan an extended stay with the whole family!

4. Room service fit for a king

When you think of room service options, you may think that were are just talking about pizza or about your typical quick service burgers and fries. Well, not so much! At deluxe resorts, the room service options are from the table service restaurants at the resort! You can enjoy some of your delicious entrée favorites from the comfort of your room. One of my favorite room service options are to dine on O’hana favorites from our room at the Polynesian! It is so amazing to have such a delicious meal from the comfort of the room after a long day in the parks!

3. Valet parking

We are huge fans of valet parking! We love the feeling of luxury of the service and walking out to the front and having the car brought right to us. The cost is $33 per day (which they count in 24 hour increments) but it is one of the luxuries that we never mind paying for to enhance the grandeur of our vacation. This service is only offered at the deluxe resorts, so it is just another amenity that you get as a bonus for staying at the deluxe resorts.

2. Club Level and what comes with it

Club level is Disney’s version of concierge service at each of the deluxe resorts. Club level guests receive a lot of extra perks and amenities! Club level guests get the benefit of the club concierge. They will book all of your dining reservations, your recreation activities, spa services, etc. You don’t have to worry about a thing and you get to show up and enjoy the itinerary that they plan for you. You also get access to a beautiful lobby that is stocked with delicious food, treats and beverages all day. There are even alcoholic beverages and cordials served throughout the day. Everything is unlimited and it is all delicious. It is such an amazing feeling to feel so pampered during your stay that it is worth the extra money on to be club level! Plus, Club Level guests can purchase 3 additional FastPass+ selections per day. This is an interesting addition that makes those popular attractions even easier to jump on without lone waits.

1. More tours and recreation activities

All Disney resorts have an amazing grouping of recreation activities and events to entertain and create magic for the guests that are staying there. The deluxe resorts really take this to the next level. The deluxe resorts have additional experiences like guided tours, hula lessons, cookie decorating, etc. that take the activities to the next level. Most of the activities are completely free for guests and such a fun way to spend time at these amazing resorts!

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
