5 Amenities Guests Enjoy At Deluxe Resorts That You Can’t Get At Moderate and Budget Resorts
Disney Deluxe Resorts offer the best accommodations money can buy at Walt Disney World… but, the best part of these luxury hotels isn’t your guest room. Here are 5 sensational amenities Deluxe Resort guests enjoy that you can’t get at Moderate or Budget Resorts:
5. Pure Elegance!
It is no surprise that all of the Disney World resorts are created with the finest attention to detail, but the deluxe resorts are truly a masterpiece. When you are in these resorts, you are really taken to another world with the theming of the resort. For instance, the Wilderness Lodge is elegantly decorated and stands so tall that you actually feel like you are in the woods of a far off place. The Grand Floridian Resort offers the finest Victorian elegance with a hint of Disney flare and the Polynesian makes you feel like you are in a tropical paradise (just to name a few). These resorts also offer top notch service! The ambiance and atmosphere of these resorts are incredibly classy and you will feel a sense of bliss when staying here.
4. Fine Dining
I am a huge fan of quick service restaurants at Disney so that I can eat quickly and continue exploring the parks, but when you actually get to sit and enjoy your meal around beautifully themed restaurants and even interact with characters, you appreciate your dining experience a little more than usual. All of the deluxe resorts at Walt Disney World include award-winning restaurants that are perfect for couples and families of all ages. There are exclusive chefs that prepare some out-of-this world meals that will have your mouth watering for more. There are also some really tasty buffets and character meet and greets directly from your dining room table. At the deluxe resorts, there is a variety of dining options to choose from whether you’re looking for something quick and inexpensive, or something moderately priced, or even fine dining. Fine dining can be costly, but the experience is worth it if you can fit in a nice meal into your budget or schedule!
3. Electric Water Pageant
Every evening, families and friends gather around the beach area of the resorts for an entertaining parade right on the Seven Seas Lagoon. This electrical parade is completely filled with lights and travels from each of the deluxe Magic Kingdom resorts by boat! There is live music that correlates with each scene in the parade as well. You will only be able to see this parade by staying or visiting the deluxe Magic Kingdom Resorts!
2. Stunning Views
There is no doubt about it that the deluxe Walt Disney World Resorts offer stunning views! Aside from a general garden or pool view, the Magic Kingdom deluxe resorts include several spectacular views including Magic Kingdom’s iconic castle, the Seven Seas Lagoon, the monorail, and so much more! The Animal Kingdom Lodge, also a deluxe resort, offers a unique savannah view where giraffes, gazelles, elephants, and warthogs (just to name a few) come within feet of your resort room balcony. The deluxe resorts over by Epcot, including the Boardwalk Inn and the Yacht & Beach Club, also offer fantastic views of a large beautiful lake and the iconic Spaceship Earth. With all of these resorts (except for the Animal Kingdom Lodge), you can also witness some pretty spectacular firework shows right from the resort room balconies or from various exterior locations surrounding the resort.
The most convenient (and fun) way of traveling around the Disney parks is the monorail! Walt had developed this futuristic dream to use as transportation and there really is no other place where you can ride these beauties! The deluxe resorts in the Magic Kingdom resort areas offer pick-up and drop-off services from the monorails directly from the resort! This is a quick and easy way to head over to Magic Kingdom without having to board a bus or car.
