Walt Disney Accommodations – Value Resorts

Today, I’m going to start with the on-property accommodations available at Walt Disney World.  There are a lot of options at a variety of price points available to people.  There are four main classifications: Value Resorts, Moderate Resorts, Deluxe Resorts, and Deluxe Villa Resorts.  Today, I’m going to discuss the five value resorts at Walt Disney World.

I’m going to keep it simple and go in alphabetical order for these five resorts.  Give readers some perspective as to where these five resorts are located in Walt Disney World:

Starting with the three All-Star Resorts, they are located down by Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studios and numbered 26-28.  As a result, guests will need to take a Disney Bus or their own car for transportation to the parks.

The first thing I will say about all of the these resorts is they are huge.  There are a lot of rooms – 1920 of them.  So, I’ll lead off with a map of the resort:

There are 10 buildings with hotel rooms grouped into five “pods.”  101 Dalmatians, Fantasia, and Toy Story are the three “pods” closest to the main Cinema Hall which houses the food court.  The Mighty Ducks and Love Bug “pods” have a further walk to Cinema Hall.

In terms of space, the rooms at the All-Star Resorts and Pop Century are the smallest on Disney property at only 260 square feet putting it on par with a standard hotel room at a national chain.  The rooms sleep four people.  Five people can stay in a All-Star Movie room provided one of the five is under three years old AND sleeps in a crib.
