Figuring out where to stay on your trip to Walt Disney World Orlando isn’t an easy task; the options are so numerous that there’s no way to keep track of them all. That’s why we’re here — to show you the best options so you don’t have to sort through the rest. Here goes!

The Best of the Best

  • Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa: Less than a mile from the Magic Kingdom, this is the choice for romantic getaways — and is excellent for solo or family-oriented travelers as well. The rooms are big, the parks are easy to access, and the service is uniformly stellar.

  • Villas of Grand Cypress:Not technically on Disney property, the Villas of Grand Cypress are
    nonetheless very close by and have easy access to the park. It is a primarily golf-oriented resort — great if you and the kids want to see Mickey & Co. while grandma and grandpa play the links — but perhaps simply because it’s not Disney, the value-per-dollar of the Villas can’t be beaten by any other hotel on this list.

  • The Bay Lake Tower at Disney’s Contemporary Resort: The best scores for cleanliness,
    location, and rooms in Disney all go to the Bay Lake Tower. Located literally right outside the Magic Kingdom and connected to the monorail that is the backbone of Disney World, the Bay Lake is a modern, sleek, and professional hotel that still sets aside enough space for the kids that it feels like proper Disney fare.

The Best

  • Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge:The Animal Kingdom Lodge offers stunning savannah views, a lot of high-quality restaurants, and fun for the kids. The only significant hiccup: the Lodge is so popular, many visitors find that they can’t get the rooms they reserved when they bought their Disney tickets — and have to make do with the next-best available room.

  • Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin:Everything about the Swan and Dolphin is good. It’s in a good location relative to the park, the restaurants are excellent (but typically Disney-pricey), and the pool is amazing. The only thing ‘wrong’ about the Swan and Dolphin is that it’s mildly generic — not as heavily themed as the other hotels. If you’re not looking to be Disney’d as you sleep, however, that might even be considered a good thing.

  • Disney’s Wilderness Lodge: The winner of the 2015 Family Hotel of the Year award, for good reason — there’s no hotel with as much kid-oriented fun in the park. It’s also a little less
    expensive than most of the others, with the caveat that it’s a little more difficult to get to the
    rides and attractions from here than from the other Disney options.

  • Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort: If what you’re looking for is to relax above all else, this is the place you want to go. It’s not quite as kid-friendly, and it cultivates a secluded atmosphere (despite being just minutes from the Magic Kingdom), so it’s the ideal spot for a vacation that doesn’t plan on being busy all day.
