For some groups—particularly those with a larger number of people than a typical family—a vacation to Walt Disney World may require accommodations that are much more spacious than even their Deluxe Resorts, and/or offer all the amenities of home, like the ability to cook one's own meals or wash clothes without having to schlep it all to a laundry room.
For these groups, it's recommended to upgrade to a Deluxe Villa. They offer far more living space than their Moderate and Deluxe Resort counterparts, can have multiple bedrooms and bathrooms at the higher end, and while they do cost more than a typical room, they do allow you to save money elsewhere by letting you cook meals of your own rather than buying them at the parks (which we all know is killer on the wallet).
Now, although they're typically used most by members of the Disney Vacation Club timeshare program, Deluxe Villas can also be booked by the general public, based on availability. They offer four levels of accommodation:
1. Studio(with kitchenette) — Sleeps up to 4 adults.
2. One-bedroom— Sleeps up to 5 adults.
3. Two-bedroom— Sleeps up to 9 adults.
4. Three-bedroom(aka Grand Villas) — Sleeps up to 12 adults.
The one-, two-, and three-bedroom villas all offer full-size kitchens, plus a clothes washer and dryer for doing laundry with. These are definitely like a cozy home away from home, with a dash of Disney magic added.
Obviously, the Deluxe Villas are the crown jewels of Disney World abodes. So what are your options in terms of where to book one? We've got the list below.
