Check-in, at All Star Sports, one of the “Value” All-Star Resorts. 

Disney resorts come in three price groups: Deluxe, Moderate, and Value.

Moderate Resorts such as Riverside-Port Orleans give a lot for your money, and have huge grounds with on-site fun, such as kayaking, playgrounds, etc. Always plan to spend a day just enjoying your resort.

The Value Resorts are a bargain. Rooms are smaller and there are fewer pools than at the Moderates; but the Value properties are colorful, cheerful, and fun, often cost less than $90/night, and offer all the perks of a Disney resort.

The Deluxe Resorts— such as Grand Floridian or Animal Kingdom Lodge– have beautiful grounds, multiple pools, fine dining, kids’ club, spa, Concierge level, and more.

Price at Disney Resorts is by the room; kids under 18 stay free; some Deluxe rooms sleep five; and at some resorts — All-Star Movies, for ex.– a crib can be added, so a family of five can stay in one room.

For those who want to save money, a great option is to camp at Fort Wilderness Campground and Resort, a huge place with many activities and amenities, plus you can take a boat to Magic Kingdom. Cost for campers can be as low as $35/night; cabins are available, too.

Keep an eye out for seasonal promotions that lower costs at all types of resorts.

Meanwhile, budget-wise travelers who want to stay off-property can definitely find bargains; check, for example, go2orlando.com. Still, you’ll be hard-pressed to beat the value of an All-Stars Resort, especially if you need to rent a car to stay off-property.
