Click through if you’re planning a fun-filled adventure and need to know how much a Disney trip might cost you.
All-Star Movies Resort
Estimated cost to stay: Starting at $97
The All-Star resorts, an insider secret to saving at Mickey’s kingdom, are among the most value-minded Disney hotels in the Orlando lineup.
At the All-Star Movies Resort, the price includes complimentary outdoor screenings of classic Disney flicks and dips in a “Fantasia”-themed pool, complete with a water-spraying statue of Mickey decked out in his sorcerer duds. Of course, drinks at the Silver Screen Spirits Pool Bar will run you a little extra.
All-Star Sports Resort
Estimated cost to stay: Starting at $97
The All-Star Sports Resort leans hard into its athletic theme. You’ll actually walk through giant football helmets to get to your room, swim in the Grand Slam Pool — which is shaped like a baseball diamond — and nosh on stadium favorites such as nachos and burgers at the End Zone food court.
Just as at the Movies resort, screenings under the stars are free.
Plan Accordingly: The Best and Worst Times to Book Your Disney Trip
Animal Kingdom Lodge
Estimated cost to stay: Starting at $252 for a standard room, $1,430 for two-bedroom Club Level suite
You’ll feel like a VIP when you stay at this Disney hotel. With options ranging from bunk-bed rooms to luxury, Club Level-suites, the Animal Kingdom Lodge caters to a variety of budgets.
No matter which room you choose, the safari-themed resort features an ongoing selection of live presentations by animal specialists, the Simba’s Clubhouse activity center for younger guests, the on-site Zahanati Massage and Fitness Center, and award-winning African dining at restaurants such as Jiko, Boma and Sanaa.
Beach Club Villas
Estimated cost to stay: Starting at $397
One of the most luxurious hotels in the U.S., the Beach Club Villas forgo the yo-ho vibes for a New England-style feel, situated on the sleepy lagoon of Stormalong Bay.
The studios and villas have a stately, classic Americana aesthetic, and the Cape May Café is known for its breakfast ― not to mention visits from Disney characters dressed for a day at the beach. The real star of the show is the three-acre outdoor water recreation area, which boasts three whirlpools, river tubing, elevated tanning decks and one of the biggest waterslides at the park.
Estimated cost to stay: Starting at $449
If you prefer a more private experience, the elegant BoardWalk Villas ring up turn-of-the-century Atlantic City vibes. This waterfront slice is convenient to Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Epcot, and it features a waterslide-equipped pool, villas with balconies and patios, and a premium contemporary American restaurant.
Disney’s Gift of Magic room offers — which are available when booking online — can help you save on rates, as can choosing a deluxe studio room. Two-bedroom villas, however, are more expensive than standard rooms. But maybe you can save money with a few jaunts outside of the park.
Caribbean Beach Resort
Estimated cost to stay: Starting at $153
If you want to get a little beachy in Orlando, Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort will make you feel like you’re on an island of your own with its 45 acres of manicured palm trees, sandy beachfront and colonial stylings.
The rooms are so steeped in pirate themes that you can almost smell the saltwater, and while the kids shoot water cannons at the pool or swashbuckle at the shipwreck play area, you can dip into the spa or take a siesta in one of the resort’s many hammocks.
Old Key West Resort
Estimated cost to stay: From $351 for a one-bedroom villa
If you stay at the romantic Old Key West Resort, all it takes is a quick boat ride to get you back to Disney Springs. It’s a good thing the boat trip is provided with your stay.
When you’re not floating back to the park, you can hit the links at the Conch Flat community golf course or dine on some Caribbean fusion at Olivia’s Cafe. Even when you’re burning off the calories with a little tennis or swimming, you’ll feel as if you’re staying somewhere inside a Hemingway novel ― but with more characters.

Polynesian Village Resort
Estimated cost to stay: Starting at $497
Established in 1971, the Polynesian Village Resort is the place to be for old-school Disney fans who want a classic, tropical atmosphere and easy monorail access to both the Magic Kingdom park and Epcot.
Decked out in teak and floral textures, the rooms feel like a slice of Hawaii. And the all-you-can-eat, family-style dining options come with something a little extra: live performances of hula dancing, fire-knife stunts and dynamic drummers.
Port Orleans Resort, Riverside
Estimated cost to stay: Starting at $179
For themed Disney resorts, it’s often all in the name. A jazzy tribute to the American South, the Riverside section of the Port Orleans Resort is no exception to this rule.
The Tom Sawyer-themed pool is pretty standard for Disney resorts, but the catch-and-release fishing hole sure isn’t. If that’s not Louisiana enough for you, chow down on Southern comfort food at Boatwright’s Dining Hall, which is designed as a shipyard meets restaurant. And bring your fur baby, too — this one’s dog-friendly.
Yacht Club Resort
Estimated cost to stay: Starting at $320 for a standard room, $1,494 for two-bedroom Club Level suite
Don’t worry if you didn’t bring your own yacht to glide along Stormalong Bay — Disney offers plenty of watercrafts for rent at the Yacht Club Resort’s Bayside Marina.
If you’d rather not sail, you should take a stroll to Epcot, indulge in surf-and-turf at the Yachtsman Steakhouse, lounge in the lagoons of a 3-acre water recreation area or trim up at the Ship Shape Health Club. Guests in rooms on the Club Level enjoy perks such as continental breakfast, hot samples from restaurants and selections of beer, wine, desserts and cordials.
