7. Different Levels
The twenty plus Disney Resorts are broken down into price categories which make it easy for guests with budgets in mind to make a selection. Disney Resorts are broken down into three categories with Deluxe being the most expensive, Value having the best deals, and Moderate falling somewhere in between.

Some Deluxe Disney Resorts include Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge and Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, Moderate Resorts include Disney’s Port Orleans French Quarter Resort and Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort, and Value options include Disney’s Art of Animation Resort and Disney’s Pop Century Resort.
6. Incredible Themes
Each Disney Resort is intricately themed on a specific place in tie or location. Guests who stay at a Disney Resort are fully immersed in amazing details and themes which make them feel as though they have been transported to another world. Depending on which resort a Disney insider chooses, they can be transported to turn of the century Atlantic City, New Orleans’ French Quarter, the savannahs of Africa, the South Pacific, and even the middle of a Disney animated film! With so many amazing themes to enjoy, guests will be sure to love trying different Disney Resorts on each visit.
5. Amazing Pools
Every Disney Resort is home to at least one pool that is sure to have guests both enjoying the fun and feeling relaxed.

4. Disney’s Magical Express
One of the biggest perks that Disney insiders love about staying on property at a Walt Disney World Resort is using Disney’s Magical Express. When arriving at the airport, guests need only find the Disney’s Magical Express location and board a bus to be whisked away to the start of their vacation. Guests don’t even need to be worried about their baggage as Disney picks it up from the airport and delivers it to their resort room later that day. When the vacation is over, guests can check in with TSA, drop off their bags, and receive their boarding passes at their resort. When the time comes to head to the airport, guests board another Disney’s Magical Express bus and are dropped off right in the main terminal of the airport.
3. Extra Magic Hours
Disney insiders who stay at a Walt Disney World Resort also love taking advantage of Extra Magic Hours. These special times are offered only to those staying at a Disney Resort and allow guests to enter into one park an hour early each day and remain in another park up to three hours after closing. These Extra Magic Hours are great times to enjoy the park as they have fewer crowds, lower wait times, and cooler temperatures.
2. Complimentary Transportation
Walt Disney World is a huge property but Disney insiders staying at a Disney Resort are treated to complimentary transportation for wherever they would like to go. Depending on what resort a guest is staying at, they can have access to buses, boats, ferries, monorail, and skyliner running conveniently between the resort and each theme park, water park, and Disney Springs. Not only is the transportation complimentary but it is also very reliable and convenient! Disney insiders know that getting around on Disney’s transportation is the easiest way to move about Walt Disney World.
1. Watching Stacey
