Disney World on a Budget

It was Walt Disney’s dream that Walt Disney World have lodging for every budget. Since the average American family can’t afford a stay at the Grand Floridian Resort, there are several more moderately priced options that you might want to consider before completely ruling out a stay at Walt Disney World during your next vacation.

The room rates at the Disney Value Resorts range from $77 to $119 per night and allow you all of the benefits of staying at a Disney Resort such as extended park hours and free transportation to the amusement and water parks. The Disney Value Resorts include Disney’s Pop Century Resort, Disney’s All-Star Movies Resort, Disney’s All-Star Music Resort and Disney’s All-Star Sports Resort.

If you’re looking for something a little more interesting, you can consider camping or roughing it in style at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground.

For those traveling with large groups or families, you may want to consider one of Disney’s Vacation Club Resorts. Complimentary transportation to the Disney amusement parks is provided from the Vacation Club Resorts as well as all other Disney resorts. The Vacation Club Resort prices begin at $284 per night but don’t let that throw you. The smallest accommodation at a Vacation Club Resort is a Studio that sleeps four comfortably. Other accommodations include one and two bedroom Vacation Homes that sleep from four to eight respectively. When you consider the savings possible by preparing your own meals in your fully equipped kitchen, the price is quite reasonable for a large family.
