Value Resort Category - Art of Animation
As a mom of two little boys, I can't wait to visit this resort! While the title may say "value" resort, the rooms are spacious, well decorated, and carry a bigger price tag then other resorts in this category. Standard rooms in this resort are themed after The Little Mermaid while the family suites are themed after The Lion King, Finding Nemo, and Cars. I can only imagine the faces on my little guys as they enter a Cars suite that they get to live in while on vacation! I may have a hard time getting them to leave and want to visit the parks!!
Moderate Resort Category - The Cabins at Disney's Fort Wilderness
Those of you who know me well, may find this one surprising. While I don't enjoy the idea of camping at all, I think of this as more of "glamping" and if anyone is going to get me to like it, it will be Disney. The cabins feature both living space and a sleeping space with a bit more room then your average moderate resort room. In addition, you have easy access to Mickey's Backyard BBQ, Hoop-Dee-Do Revue, and are just a quick boat launch away from Magic Kingdom. Again, these rooms come with a steeper price tag then others in the moderate category (hmmm. . .I'm noticing a trend. . .), but the extra money seems to be well spent to have a truly unique Disney resort experience.
Deluxe / Deluxe Villa Resort Category - Boardwalk Inn
Honestly, I think I could stay in any resort in this category and be over-the-moon happy. But, when thinking about where I want to stay next, the Boardwalk Inn is a winner in my book. What I like most about the Boardwalk Inn is the location. As far as proximity to parks, you can walk to both Epcot and Hollywood Studios from here and take a bus to Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom. And as the name suggests, the Boardwalk Inn is located on Walt Disney World's very own boardwalk. The boardwalk features restaurants, nightclubs, and entertainment that provide a multitude of activities when you need a break from the parks - all right in front of your hotel.
Planning future Walt Disney World trips is my favorite hobby and I hope to have the chance to stay at some of these resorts soon. I'd be interested in hearing feedback from any of you who have stayed at these resorts previously. What was your experience?
