There are a total of 22 Walt Disney World resorts located at Lake Buena Vista, Florida. Your choice of hotel and accommodations will depend on several factors, such as (a) the price range of the hotels and how much you can afford, (b) the type of activities you wish to do, (c) the proximity of the hotels to the theme park that you wish to go to, and (d) the amenities and services you want to avail of.
Still confused? Let us help you. Below are some things you should look for in choosing Walt Disney hotels.
Choosing for the entire family
When choosing a hotel, try to look for one that offers activities for the whole family or group. Not everyone enjoys the same activities. Some may opt to play tennis to unwind, others prefer lounging on the beach, and still others may feel that having a massage and spa is the ultimate relaxation. Book a hotel which offers a variety of activities and amenities. You can’t please everyone - but you can at least try. This way, everyone in the family or group will truly enjoy their vacation.
Kids and babies
If you want to spend some time alone or time with your spouse but you need to bring your children on vacation with you, look for a hotel that takes care of kids. There are many hotels that offer programs to provide children’s activities for every age group – your kids can learn and have fun in a safe environment. The hotel should be able to provide transportation and a guide or chaperon throughout the activities. Usually, a full day of activities for children will set you back around $30 (per child). Find out how much the service costs in different hotels, and find one that best suits your budget.
Some tips: (1) If you want to have dinner in peace, ask the hotel if they have baby sitting services at night. (2) Before leaving your child, remember to always check the menu so you can track what he or she is going to be eating the entire day. (3) Before booking with a hotel, check the availability of the program and book the activities early on.
Before booking for a hotel, check any extra fees or charges for services that you may avail of, such as umbrellas and chair rentals, washers or dryers, sports and water equipment, fitness equipment, videos, video game systems, and transportation. These extra expenses should all be a part of your budget. Jotting them all down will prepare you on what to expect. There’s nothing more embarrassing than finding out you do not have enough money to settle your hotel bill.
Once you have chosen the hotel that suits your requirements and circumstances, you should make reservations weeks (even months) in advance. Remember that hotels and resorts can get booked easily. Quickly make reservations by calling Disney World directly or by booking with a Disney World agent so that they can make all the arrangements for you. You can also book reservations through the Internet, through Disney World’s website.
