Disney's Boardwalk Villas

Step back in time with Disney’s Boardwalk Villas. The waterfront resort is modeled after a 1940s era Atlantic City, and there’s even a Coney Island-style boardwalk. The accommodations range from a deluxe studio to a three-bedroom villa with a full kitchen and dining room. The resort is within walking distance of Epcot and Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and there are lots of fun details like the carnival-themed Luna Park Pool with a 200-foot long water slide. What makes this property unique is the amusement park theme that still feels upscale.

Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa

Disney’s Victorian-style resort is only one stop away from the Walt Disney World Resort on the Resort Monorail, and the property is full of luxurious features. An elegant Victorian theme is carried throughout the 867 guest rooms and many have a view of the nightly fireworks from Cinderella’s castle. Staying on the grounds of Walt Disney World has its perks - the resort’s Enchanted Rose is a lounge inspired by Beauty and the Beast, there are Disney movie nights under the stars, and guests can view a nighttime electrical water parade across the Seven Seas Lagoon.
