Disney World Resort Hotels 101 - An Overview of Staying at a Disney Resort Property

All Star Sports resort pool

5. Value Resorts

Disney World has three main tiers of resort hotels: Value, Moderate, and Deluxe. The Value Resorts are the most affordable ones, and tend to be best for families on a budget. They also tend to have the most simplistic theming concepts.

They are:

  • All-Star Movies— Celebrates iconic Disney films and movie-going culture.
  • All-Star Music— Themed after various genres of music.
  • All-Star Sports— Offers a fun sports theme, complete with a giant football field. Often the resort of choice for athletic teams and other such groups.
  • Art of Animation— This one is all about the artistry and magic of Disney's animated films. Be sure to check out the underwater music that plays in the Finding Nemo-themed pool.
  • Pop Century— Focuses on the pop culture and iconography from the latter half of the 20th century.
  • Fort Wilderness (Campsites)— Ideal for tent-campers and RVers alike. Also a mere boat ride away from Magic Kingdom, though it has plenty of entertainment of its own to experience.
