Depending on when you are thinking of traveling to Walt Disney World, rates for the Value Resorts at Walt Disney World (the lease expensive Disney-owned hotels) could range from $95/night to $200/night. This depends on what time of year you travel (for example, traveling during peak seasons such as summertime and the holidays will cost more than traveling during non-peak season).

You can also save money by seeing what deals and specials Walt Disney World is offering when you are booking.

Types of Resorts at Walt Disney World

A current list of the Value Resorts at Disney World is as follows:

  • Disney’s All-Star Movies Resort

What is a Disney Value Resort?

The Value Resorts are Disney’s lowest-priced Resort hotels on property.

What are the advantages of staying at a Disney Value Resort?

One advantage of Value Resorts is the price. These hotels are great for those of you who won’t be in their rooms much, such as families who plan to spend most of their time in the theme parks. Another example is those with small children who are looking to visit Walt Disney World on a budget and spend their money elsewhere, such as at sit-down restaurants or in gift shops to buy souvenirs. Save your money on the hotel room by staying at a Value Resort.
