This is my weekly blog on my website and in my weekly newsletter. I would like to know your favorite deluxe resort and feel fre to view a sample of our weekly newsletter at my website: www.wdwpeakseasons.com
The Deluxe resorts are: Animal Kingdom Lodge, Beach Club & yahct Club, Boardwalk Inn, Contemporary, Grand Floridian, Poylnesian, and Wilderness Lodge. These are the most expensive resorts, but have the largest rooms and the most amenities. These resorts can range in price depending on the type of room you choose and the season you vacation in.
These resorts each have a different theme, and each is close to a certain park. The Grand Floridian, Polynesian, and Contemporary are on the Magic Kingdom Monorail line. The Magic Kingdom is a short boat ride from Wilderness Lodge. Boardwalk Inn, Beach Club, and Yacht Club are within walking distance of EPCOT and Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park and the Animal Kingdom Lodge are within minutes of each other. The Deluxe resorts are places where you can spend a significant amount of your day, so if you are planning on not spending the majority of your time in the parks, a deluxe resort may be the way to go. Cost could be a factor in your decision. The cost for deluxe rooms ranges from $225 - $2100 depending on the room type, the season, and the view you want.
[FONT='Times','serif']So which is the best Deluxe resort? This is so hard to say because each offers something unique to guests. It really depends on your tastes and what theme best fits your family. For our family it is Animal Kingdom Lodge. Where else can you go out on your balcony and have the opportunity to see giraffes, zebras, and other wildlife? The lodge itself is so wonderfully done, that you have a hard time believing you are in central Florida. It also offers two of the best restaurants on the Disney property, Boma- a buffet featuring many African flavored offerings, as well as standard American foods, and Jiko- which is a fancy restaurant focusing on exotic menu options.
[FONT='Times','serif']If money is not a huge concern, then any of the deluxe resorts are a great choice. Disney truly did a remarkable job in creating these resorts as a way to make you feel like you are miles away from everything. If money is a large concern, then you can always do what we do once a year and save some money and head over to Pop Century!!! [/FONT]
