5. Disney’s Polynesian Villas & Bungalows (Deluxe Villas)
Escape to an enchanting oasis of swaying palms, tropical surroundings and an island ambience that evokes the languid spirit of the South Pacific. Disney’s Polynesian Villas & Bungalows makes its home at one of the original—and legendary—Walt Disney World Resort hotels.
Guests staying at the Polynesian Villas say their stay was great but the villas need a little TLC. Reviews were from fall of 2020.
6. Disney’s All Star Movies Resort (Value Resort)
Imagine yourself sharing the spotlight with some of your favorite Disney friends, as you headline your very own all-star adventure. Stay at a Disney Resort hotel that salutes the legends of Disney films—from the dotted pups of 101 Dalmatians to the playful toys of Andy’s Room— with whimsical, larger-than-life décor.
Tripadvisor reviews say All Star Movies is a great resort for families on a budget.
7. Disney’s Contemporary Resort (Deluxe Resort)
Retreat to this ultra-modern Disney Resort hotel and discover award-winning dining, spectacular views and dazzling pools. Whether you’re staying in the iconic A-frame Contemporary tower or the nearby Garden Wing, you can walk to Magic Kingdom main gate or catch the Resort Monorail as it breezes through the tower. Inside, a 90-foot-tall mural by Disney Legend Mary Blair—responsible for the distinct look and feel of the “it’s a small world” attraction—celebrates the Grand Canyon and the American Southwest.
Tripadvisor reviewers like the location of the Contemporary but aren’t thrilled with the construction happening right now.
8. Disney’s Pop Century Resort (Value Resort)

Guests say Pop Century is budget friendly and they like access to the Disney Skyliner but is slightly lacking.
9. Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – Riverside (Moderate Resort)
From the stately white-column mansions of Magnolia Bend to Alligator Bayou’s quaint backwoods cottages, delight in a picturesque setting that evokes the romance of rural Louisiana. Take a short walk along the Sassagoula River to Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – French Quarter, known for Southern specialties like gumbo, jambalaya and beignets.
Reviews on Tripadvisor say Port Orleans Riverside is clean with friendly staff. The only downside is how big the resort is.
