Disney World Resort Villas, Cabins and Suites – OH MY!

Walt Disney World Resort is one of the most popular vacation destinations in the world, with an estimated annual attendance of more than 52 million visitors a year. As the majority of vacationers come from all over the globe, it goes without saying that a great number of guests opt to book accommodations right on Disney property, choosing from 36 currently available resorts (soon to be even more). Disney World accommodations range in various categories, from budget-friendly Value Resorts to more elite Deluxe Resort offerings, as well as spacious villas and suites. And for those who prefer taking to the campgrounds, there are even campsites and cabin rentals at some designated locations. In this article we’re taking a look at the various villas, cabins, and suites available to those looking to stay on premises at Disney World.

The value of a villa 

Villas at Walt Disney World Resort are larger and much more spacious than standard room accommodations. As part of the Disney Vacation Club category for housing, villa rooms can be found exclusively at Disney Deluxe Resort properties, but they are not exclusive to Disney Vacation Club members. Anyone can opt to stay in a villa when available, and we recommend going this route especially if you are traveling with a larger group of people. Villas are designed to accommodate multiple inhabitants in a roomy, condo-like atmosphere with separate sleeping spaces (sometimes ranging in up to three bedrooms) and even an in-house kitchen or kitchenette. 

Villa resort properties include:

  • Bay Lake Tower at Disney’s Contemporary Resort: Located in the Magic Kingdom Resort Area, this newer addition to Disney’s Contemporary Resort boasts one and two-bedroom villas along with grand three-bedroom villas that can comfortably accommodate up to 12 adults. One-bedroom accommodations come with a king bed, a queen-size sleeper sofa, and one twin-size sleeper chair. Two-bedroom options include a king, two queen beds, one queen-size sofa sleeper, and a twin-size sleeper chair. Three-bedroom grand villas come with one king bed, four queens, and one queen-size sofa sleeper. All villa options boast two or more full bathrooms in addition to full kitchens, in-unit washer/dryer setups, and plenty of other amenities.

Sleeping capacities range from four guests in one-bedroom villas, up to eight in two-bedroom accommodations, and as many as 12 in three-bedroom grand villas. The first option comes as one king bed and a queen-size sleeper sofa, while two-bedroom villas come complete with one king bed, two queens, and a queen-size sleeper sofa. Three-bedroom grand villas include a king bed, four queens, and one queen-size sleeper sofa. Villas with two or more bedrooms also include two or more bathrooms, and all villas come with fully equipped kitchens, in-room washer and dryer, and numerous other amenities.

  • Boulder Ridge Villas at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge: Also located at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, the villa options making up the Boulder Ridge section of the resort include one and two-bedroom offerings and can sleep anywhere from four to eight adults depending on selections. One-bedroom options include one king bed and one queen-size sleeper sofa, while two-bedrooms include one king, two queens, and a queen-size sleeper sofa. Like the Copper Creek Villas, all Boulder Ridge villas boast fully equipped kitchens, washer and dryer combos, and many more in-room comforts.
  • The Villas at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa: Another famed favorite of the Magic Kingdom Resort Area, the villas at this stately turn-of-the-century themed resort range in one, two, and three-bedroom distinctions. One-bedroom villas come with one king bed, one queen-size sleeper sofa, and a single sleeper pull-down bed. Up to five adults can be easily accommodated. Two-bedroom options can sleep up to nine and include a king bed, a queen bed, two queen-size sleeper sofas, and one single pull-down bed. Three-bedroom grand villas include one king bed, four queens, one queen-size sleeper sofa, and are suitable for up to 12 guests. In-room features for all villas include kitchenettes or kitchens, washer/dryer setups, and plenty more.
  • Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas—Jambo House: Within Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge’s Jambo House location, villas range in one, two, and three bedroom distinctions. Depending on whether you opt for one bedroom with Club Level service, a standard view, savanna view, or a slightly smaller value option, one-bedroom villa accommodations tend to differ slightly. The aforementioned three all include one king bed, a queen-size sleeper sofa, and a twin-size sleeper chair, with the capacity to house up to five guests. Value villas fit up to four with arrangements that include one king bed and one queen-size sleeper sofa. Most two-bedroom lock-off villas can sleep up to nine and come with one king bed, one queen bed, a double-size sleeper sofa, a queen-size sleeper sofa, and one sleeper chair. The exception is the two-bedroom value option, which accommodates up to eight and omits the inclusion of a sleeper chair. Then there are three-bedroom grand villas, featuring wondrous views of the savanna. These rooms can comfortably fit up to 12 guests and include a king bed, four queens, and one queen-size sleeper sofa. All villas include fully equipped kitchens, in-room washer/dryer combos, and other home-away-from-home essentials.
  • Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas—Kidani Village: Likewise, the Kidani Village section at Disney’s Animal Kingdom offers guests one, two, and three-bedroom accommodations. Options for one-bedroom come with a king bed, queen-size sleeper sofa, one sleeper chair, and can sleep up to five. Two-bedroom villas all sleep up to nine with the presentation of a king bed, two queens, one queen-size sleeper sofa, and twin-size sleeper chair. Two-bedroom villa lock-off options feature one king bed, one queen bed, a double-size sleeper sofa, one queen sleeper sofa, and one sleeper chair. Three-bedroom grand villas, designed for up to 12 guests at a time, include a king bed, four queens, and a queen-size sleeper sofa. All of Kidani Village’s villas come with at least two bathrooms per unit in addition to featuring fully equipped kitchens, washer/dryer components, and other in-room essentials.
  • Disney’s Beach Club Villas: Disney’s Beach Club and neighboring Yacht Club share in many of the same site perks and amenities. So if you are a longtime fan of either resort looking for a stay that allots for more spacious surroundings for your party this coming vacation, you should opt for a stay in one of Disney’s Beach Club Villas. You can choose from one or two-bedroom options, some of which are two-bedroom lock-off villas that can sleep up to nine. These come with one king and queen bed, a queen-size sleeper sofa, one double-size sleeper sofa, and a single pull-down bed. Other two-bedroom villas include a king bed, two queens, and one queen-size sleeper sofa, and can accommodate up to eight or nine. One-bedroom villas generally come with one king bed, a queen-size sleeper sofa, and can fit four to five guests. And as always, Disney villas provide all those in-room perks and amenities, including fully equipped kitchen spaces, washers and dryers, and other essentials.
  • Disney’s BoardWalk Villas: Conveniently situated between Epcot Park and Hollywood Studios, the old-time festivities of Disney’s BoardWalk make it a fairly sought after place to be. And for larger families and groups traveling together, there’s Disney’s BoardWalk Villas, ranging in options from one-bedroom accommodations, two-bedrooms, and even two-story three-bedroom grand villas. One-bedroom villas come with a king bed, one queen-size sleeper sofa, and can accommodate up to four guests with options to sleep up to five. Two-bedroom accommodations that can sleep up to nine guests include one king bed, a queen bed, one full-size sleeper sofa, a queen-size sleeper sofa, and a single pull-down bed. Spacious three-bedroom grand villa distinctions come with one king bed, four queens, and a queen-size sleeper sofa, and can sleep up to 12. As mentioned earlier, these villas include two stories. And as is the case for all Disney Deluxe Villa Resorts, you will find all the same great in-room perks, like kitchens, washer/dryer, and other necessary amenities. 
  • Disney’s Old Key West Resort: The available villa accommodations at this premier Disney Vacation Club property range in one, two, and three-bedroom distinctions. One-bedroom villas, with a capacity to sleep up to five, come with a king bed, one queen-size sleeper sofa, and a sleeper sofa chair. Two-bedroom options, both lock-off and otherwise, include one king bed, two queens, a queen-size sleeper sofa, and one sleeper chair. Up to nine people would be well accommodated here. Three-bedroom villas that sleep up to 12 are also available and boast a king bed, two queens, two double beds, one queen-size sleeper sofa, and a twin-size sleeper chair. Again, full kitchens, washer/dryer setups, and many more in-room essentials make up the list of amenities guests can enjoy.

One-bedroom accommodations can sleep between four and five at most and come with one king and one queen-size sleeper sofa.

  • Disney’s Riviera Resort: While not yet open to the public, guests are already well informed of the floor plans at this newest Epcot Area Deluxe Resort, and booking options are already in full swing for stays starting in December and beyond. And for those who seek a stay in one of the resort’s villas, there are one, two, and three-bedroom options to choose from. One-bedroom villas are designed for up to five guests and feature a king bed, one queen-size pull-down bed, and a single pull-down bed. Two-bedroom villas have the capacity to sleep up to nine and include one king bed, two queens, a queen-size pull-down bed, and a single pull-down. There are also two-bedroom lock-off villas for up to 10, which come with a king bed, one queen, two queen-size pull-down beds, and two single pull-downs. Three-bedroom grand villas that can accommodate up to 12 are also available and come with a king bed, one queen bed, two queen-size pull-down beds, and two single pull-down beds. It goes without saying that these villas too feature all those in-room amenities and essentials you’ve come to expect from Disney villas, including fully equipped kitchens and washer/dryer setups.

Can’t miss cabins details

Did you know that there are even options to stay in a cabin during your Walt Disney World vacation? These stand-alone dwellings offer plenty of home-away-from-home essentials and onsite perks to be enjoyed by guests who might like a feel for the outdoors but aren’t so keen on “roughing it out” per se.

Here’s where to find a cabin at Walt Disney World:

  • Fort Wilderness Resort & Campgrounds: This camper’s dream-come-true of a resort is the primary go-to most people think of when considering a cabin stay. While campsites are considered Value properties, the cabins with all their amenities rank in the Moderate Resort division. They have the capacity to sleep up to six guests at a time and come complete with fully equipped in-house kitchens, bathrooms, air conditioning, Internet and televisions, and other creature comforts you wouldn’t expect while camping, plus others like daily housekeeping (AKA: mousekeeping) services. Fort Wilderness Cabins all feature one queen bed, a bunk bed, and one double-size sleeper sofa. 
  • Copper Creek Villas & Cabins at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge: Disney’s Wilderness Lodge also features a number of standalone cabin dwellings to choose from. These waterfront Cascade Cabins, totaling 26 in all, can accommodate up to eight guests and also feature in-house essentials ranging in both traditional creature comforts and added perks you most likely didn’t expect. Sleeping arrangements are comprised of one king bed, one queen bed, a queen-size sleeper sofa, a single pull-down bed, and one twin-size sleeper chair. Each cabin comes with two bedrooms, two bathrooms, full kitchen and dining areas, a separate living room/sitting room space, and so much more. Large floor-to-ceiling windows add to the scenic appeal of your surroundings along with the ruggedly wonderful exposed wood décor and stone-heath fireplaces.

  • Disney’s Saratoga Springs Treehouse Villas: While not officially considered cabins per se, the treehouse villas at Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa are standalone dwellings on off-the-ground elevations along the resort’s woodland settings. With a capacity to comfortably house up to nine, these cabin-like villas include two queen beds, one bunk bed, a twin-size sleeper chair, and one queen-size sleeper sofa. Each unit features three separate bedrooms, two bathrooms, full kitchens, and home-away-from-home essentials.
Polynesian Bungalows

  • Disney’s Polynesian Villas & Bungalows: Again, while not exactly counted as cabins in the traditional sense of the word, the standalone Bora Bora Bungalows at this tropical South Seas-themed resort have more in common with the separate-unit dwelling concept of Disney’s cabin offerings than those of traditional villa floor plans. Lined up along the piers overlooking Seven Seas Lagoon, each housing unit sleeps up to eight, and features all the home-away-from-home essentials, plus some. Sleeping accommodations include one king bed, one queen bed, a queen-size sleeper sofa, and two single pull-down beds. Each bungalow includes two bedrooms, full kitchens, washer/dryer components, and added perks to boot, including private plunge pools on equally private patios, in-mirror televisions, and a host of other fun features.

The sweetness of suites

Many Walt Disney World Resorts feature family suites, which unlike villas, are not limited to Deluxe Resorts alone. Most hotel suites come with at least one separate bedroom, and private bathroom in addition to kitchens/kitchenettes and private balconies or patios. Depending on the size and distinction (Club Level or otherwise) some may include more bedrooms and bathrooms. 

Here are some of the suite accommodations available to you throughout Walt Disney World:

  • Disney’s Contemporary Resort: In addition to standard rooms available at the resort’s main section, larger family suites are available. Providing guests with either theme park views of neighboring Magic Kingdom Park or Bay Lake, suites range in one and two-bedroom distinctions and can sleep anywhere from five, six, seven, or eight adults, depending on the option you choose. One example, the Garden Wing one-bedroom designed for five, comes with a king bed, one queen-size sleeper sofa, and a twin-size sleeper chair. Another Garden Wing option, the Hospitality Suite, includes a king bed, queen-size sleeper sofa, and either one daybed or two queen beds and one queen-size sleeper sofa plus a daybed. Up to seven can comfortably be accommodated via this selection. A Bay Lake View Club Level two-bedroom suite for up to eight comes with either four queen beds and a queen-size sleeper sofa or two queen beds, a king, and a queen-size sleeper sofa. A Club Level one-bedroom option for up to six may include two queen beds and one queen-size sleeper sofa. 
  • Disney’s Wilderness Lodge: Families and larger vacationing groups will find a host of deluxe rooms, also known as Junior Suites, available to choose from in addition to the Club Level-exclusive offerings of the Yosemite Vice Presidential and Presidential Suites. Junior Suites can accommodate up to six adults at a time and include two queen beds in the bedroom, and a queen-size sleeper sofa in the main living area. Presidential and Vice Presidential Suites, distinguishable for spanning 1,000 square feet for the aforementioned and 885 feet for the latter, come with a king bed in the bedroom and a queen-size sleeper sofa in the living area. Bedrooms and living areas are separate, allowing for privacy and space. And the inclusion of two televisions and other in-room amenities only add to the comfort and charm.

  • Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa: Guests looking to stay in the glamor and elegance of this Golden Age of Florida-inspired resort can experience several sweet suite accommodations, offering either one or two-bedroom distinctions. Typical one-bedroom suites at Club Level have the capacity to sleep up to six adults, arranged by two queen beds and a double-size sleeper sofa. Two-bedroom distinctions come with a king, two queens, a double-size sleeper sofa, and the capacity to comfortably accommodate up to eight guests. There are other elite suites available as well, including the Walt Disney Suite, Roy Disney Suite, and Grand Suite to boot. 
  • Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort: Guests who select Club Level services at this resort have the option to stay in a one-bedroom suite that sleeps up to five with a separate living area. Accommodations generally include queen beds and a daybed (though some designs may differ slightly with king bed offerings), along with plenty of in-room amenities. In addition to these rooms, larger offerings like the Princess Suite, Ambassador Suite (also known as the Vice Presidential Suite), and the King Kamehameha Suite (the Presidential Suite) also exist in the Tonga House. Princess Suites may have one or two bedrooms, while both the Ambassador Suite and the King Kamehameha have two bedrooms. Some of the aforementioned suites can accommodate up to nine guests total.
  • Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge: Another suggestion for accommodating your wild brood is to book one of many distinguishable suites at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge. Choose from one or two-bedroom suites, or the more regal Royal Kuba Vice Presidential Suite or Royal Asante Presidential Suite. One-bedroom suites, designed for up to six guests, include two queen beds and a queen-size sleeper sofa. Two-bedroom options come with a king, two queens, and a queen-size sleeper sofa and can comfortably sleep up to eight. Both the Presidential and Vice Presidential Suites also offer up two bedrooms along with plenty of in-room perks and amenities. 


  • Disney’s Beach Club Resort: This New England-style coastal resort boasts various suite options, including one and two-bedroom options, in addition to the more spacious Vice Presidential Nantucket Suite and the Presidential Newport Suite. Typical one-bedroom suites are generally designed for up to four guests and may include one king bed and a queen-size sleeper sofa. Two-bedroom accommodations for up to seven feature one king, two queens, and one daybed.
  • Disney’s Yacht Club Resort: This sister resort to Disney’s Beach Club also boasts one and two-bedroom suite options in addition to larger suites, including the Presidential, Admiral, or the resort’s largest suite—the Captain’s Deck Suite. One-bedroom suites, designed with four guests in mind, typically come with a king bed and one queen-size sleeper sofa. Two-bedroom options offer up a king, two queen beds, and one daybed. Up to seven guests can be well accommodated. 
  • Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort: One of the most unique things about this Moderate Resort is the fact that it offers many Club Level amenities. It also boasts a whole host of varying suites to choose from. Junior Suites for four to six guests, depending on distinction, can either come with a king bed and queen-size sleeper sofa or two queens and a queen-size sleeper sofa. One-bedroom suites also follow the same four to six guest distinction and bedding options. At the Casitas you will even find an Executive Suite that sleeps up to eight with one king bed, two queens, and a queen-size sleeper sofa. Over in the newly opened Gran Destino Tower the “suite”ness continues with a Deluxe Suite, one-bedroom suite, and Presidential Suite offering. The first two can comfortably sleep four guests by way of a king bed and one queen-size sleeper sofa. The Presidential Suite includes one king, two queens, and can accommodate up to six guests.
  • Disney’s All-Star Music: You’ll even find family suites at some of Disney’s select Value Resorts. Able to comfortably sleep up to six adults, these affordable, yet spacious accommodations include a queen bed in the suite’s master bedroom, and additional sleepers in the main seating area, including a twin-size sleeper chair, a double-size sleeper sofa, and twin-size sleeper ottoman. With essential home-away-from-home amenities on a budget, these suites even include kitchenettes—something you probably wouldn’t have expected at a Value Resort.

  • Disney’s Art of Animation: Another Value Resort sporting family suites, Disney’s Art of Animation is in reality what’s considered a Value Plus Resort. In fact, with the exception of the Little Mermaid-themed rooms, almost all accommodations onsite are in fact family suites. Themed after Cars, The Lion King, and Finding Nemo, family suites can accommodate up to six guests by way of one queen bed, a double-size table bed, and a double-size sleeper sofa. And again, these value suites too feature in-room amenities and essentials, including a private kitchenette among other things.

The diversity in Disney accommodations spans many other room distinctions in addition to those highlighted here. These include other room categories ranging from standard to deluxe, and even other lesser-known distinguished suite setups. But do note that various room designs, included beds, and other furnishings are at times subject to change. Also keep in mind that there are a host of other nearby non-Disney resort properties (including resorts like the Walt Disney World Swann and Dolphin) that get the Disney seal of approval in also offering up villas, suites, and similar distinctions. Regardless of the size, budget, and specifications of your party, you’re sure to find optimal accommodations waiting for you at Walt Disney World.
