This or That: Choosing a Walt Disney World Deluxe Hotel

With so many Deluxe Disney resort hotels from which to choose at Walt Disney World, how do you pick the one that's right for you? We're here to help by ranking Disney hotels in head-to-head comparisons. Find out which are best for you.

Picking Between Any Two Walt Disney World Deluxe Hotels

Walt Disney World Deluxe Resort Hotels are the top tier onsite hotel properties at Disney World. But with so many great choices from which to choose, how do you know which Walt Disney World Deluxe Resort is right for you?

Amelia and I try to help with your decision making by giving our takes on which hotel we would choose based on head-to-head comparisons of some of the most common this or that hotel decisions faced by Walt Disney World travelers. Having stayed in each of these hotels many many times over the years, we have strong opinions on all of them, and we're not shy about sharing what we think.

We rate each Walt Disney World Deluxe Hotel on five criteria:
  1. Hotel Theming
  2. Onsite Dining
  3. Things to do
  4. Getting around
  5. The grounds
You may not agree with what we think, but our debate should help you to make your own decisions as you try to find just the right Walt Disney World hotel for your next Disney vacation.

The Walt Disney World Deluxe Hotel pairings that we cover:
  • Disney's Grand Floridian Resort vs. Disney's Polynesian Village Resort
  • Disney's Polynesian Village Resort vs. Disney's Contemporary Resort
  • Disney's Contemporary Resort vs. Disney's Grand Floridian Resort
  • Disney's Wilderness Lodge vs. Disney's Polynesian Village Resort
  • Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge vs. Disney's Wilderness Lodge
  • Disney's Yacht Club Resort vs. Disney's Beach Club Resort
  • Disney's Boardwalk Inn vs. Disney's Yacht/Beach Club
Listen to the show to hear our perspectives on each of these Deluxe Disney Resort hotels and hear which ones we think come out on top in head-to-head battles.
