Disney World Resort Suite vs Disney World Resort Villa: What’s The Difference?
One thing to be aware of when it comes to suites in Walt Disney World is that many people refer to “suites” and “villas” interchangeably.
But they’re not the same thing.
Yes, they do share the rarefied air of being the highest-quality rooms available on Disney properties, often even boasting private lounges or a dedicated concierge.
Some things that make a villa different, however, are…
- Lower cost than many available Disney World Resort Suites
- They include a full kitchen with a fridge, stove, microwave, etc.
- They come in studio, 1-bedroom, 2-bedroom, or even grand 3-bedroom sizes
The main catch is that villas are offered first to Disney Vacation Club Members. Then, if they are still available, they open up to booking for non-members.
So watch out for that when you go to book your favorite Disney Resort Suite or Villa and be specific about your preferences and priorities with anyone who is helping you plan.
Either way, you can absolutely expect stellar service and splashy splendor during every bit of your trip. That’s why below you’ll find recommendations of suites AND villas.
Favorite Disney World Resort Suites For Kids
Let’s be honest. All the rooms at Walt Disney World are more than suitable for kiddos of all ages.
Plus, each youngling that comes to visit Mickey has their own unique hopes and humor, desires and dreams.
In our experience though, the following are some of the most popular suites amongst our youngest travelers…
Royal Guest Rooms at Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – Riverside.
As “royal” suggests, these are ornate and regal spaces designed for the most discerning princesses and princes regardless of what kind of castle they are accustomed to at home.
Cars Suites at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort.
Love Lightning McQueen and his funky friends? Zoom to sleep and joyride through your vacation with these spunky spaces.
The Lion King Family Suite at Disney’s All-Star Music Resort.
If you just can’t wait to be king, these are the rooms for you. With stylish bunks and pull-down beds, you can roam and ruminate in these large suites as you enjoy this season in your own circle of life.
The 3-Bedroom Grand Villa in Bay Lake Tower at Disney’s Contemporary Resort.
There is nothing that isn’t amazing about these rooms. Plus, views of Magic Kingdom, the Polynesian, the Grand Floridian, and all of the monorails, anyone?
The King Kamehameha Suite at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort.
More affordable than suites at the Contemporary or Grand Floridian, but with some of the best food and magnificent decor to remind you that you’re playing in a tropical paradise.
Favorite Disney World Resort Suites For Adults
While Disney certainly can bring out the kid in all of us, sometimes we still long for a little grown-up luxury and elegance, amiright?
Here are some of our favorites for special splurges or couple escapes…
