There are many reasons that Disney vacations are so popular. In fact, many who visit once come back again and again, and that cannot be said for all vacation destinations. So what is it about vacations at Disney Resort Hotels that makes them so special?  Why do people make their room reservations at their favorite resorts months in advance? And how can you get the Disney Resort Hotel Information you need?  Read on.

Certainly the fabulous attractions have a lot to do with how these hotels are special. There is something for everyone and with so many options, you never have to do the same thing twice. Another reason for the large number of repeat visitors has to do with the quality of the accommodations. Some even take several days off from park hopping just to enjoy the amenities found at their hotel.  Or, after park hours, they make a point to visit the resorts other than the one where they are staying.

Understanding what Disney hotels offer before you book can help you make the best choices.

Understanding what Disney hotels offer before you book can help you make the best choices.

Many of the Disney resort hotels have fabulous dining rooms right on site. While you would expect most of the deluxe hotels to have great restaurants (and they do), some of the moderate and value hotels also have some wonderful choices.

Character dining at the theme parks and resorts guarantee an opportunity to meet, and spend time with, your favorite Disney characters.  Mickey, Minnie, and all his classic friends host Chef Mickey’s at the Contemporary Resort.  Meet Cinderella, Alice in Wonderland, and other characters at 1900 Park Fare at Disney’s Grand Floridian.

The Disney’s All-Star Movie Resort, a value hotel, is home to the World Premiere Food Court. Here you can find breakfast options, pizza, pasta and lots more. Even if you never leave the hotel, you will have plenty food options.  It is a fun, family-friendly environment.

Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – French Quarter is a moderate Disney Resorts hotel. Their Sassagoula Floatworks and Food Factory Food Court offer New Orleans standards such as jambalaya along with pizza and burgers.  This is a popular choice, so be sure to make your dining reservations early.

The Polynesian Resort presents Disney’s Spirit of Aloha dinner show near the shores of the Seven Seas Lagoon – just steps from the Great Ceremonial Hall, the gorgeous lobby of the resort.  The experience offers great food and great fun, including luau dances and a fire dance!

Of course, the choices at the upscale hotels are, well, more upscale. For example the Sanaa Restaurant at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas – Kidani Village, features meticulously prepared dishes. The atmosphere is as special as the food as you can watch animals roaming in the savanna while you enjoy your fabulous meal.

And Disney offers the ultimate dining experience for special occasions – Victoria & Albert’s at Disney’s Grand Floridian.  An award-winning dining experience, available with fine wine parings, awaits ladies and gentleman who are looking for the very best gourmet experience.

As is the case in all parts of the resort, the food options at the hotels are delicious AND abundant.

The Service

Every member of the Disney staff is trained to treat each guest as if they were the most important guest to ever walk through the door. Whether you stay at the value Disney’s Pop Century Resort or the luxury Disney’s Yacht Club Resort, you will be treated with such care that you will never want to leave!

Whether you need extra towels for your room or have questions about that night’s event, the hotel staff and, if applicable, hotel concierge will be right there to help you in any way that they can. You will feel like the most important guest in the hotel.

The Amenities

There are several amenities and special services at Disney Resort Hotels that make them stand out from the rest. Of course, the amenities offered at each hotel will vary, so be sure check what is available at your selected hotel at the time of booking.

Child Care

Babysitting services and special kids clubs are available at many Disney Resort hotels. This allows the parents to enjoy a little time alone while the kids have fun with others their own age. Sit down for a quiet dinner, take in the exciting Cirque Du Soleil La Nouba show, or take a long, leisurely walk on the beach. All the while you will know that your kids are enjoying fun activities in a well supervised environment.

Shuttle Service

All Disney hotels have free shuttle service from the hotel to all of the Disney parks.  This is also available at good neighbor hotels – especially those near Disney Springs area like the Disney World Swan and Dolphin.  This means no hunting for parking or trying to find your car at the end of the day.

Kitchens

Many rooms, even some in value hotels, have a kitchen or kitchenette. You will be able to prepare simple meals when you don’t feel like going out. Eating breakfast at the hotel before heading out for the day is a great way to save money and get your day moving faster.

Fitness Centers

You will probably eating more sweets than usual while on a Disney vacation, so be sure to take the time to work off some calories in the state of the art fitness centers and health clubs located in many Disney Resort hotels.
