Walt Disney World

I travel to the theme parks monthly and have stayed in every single resort from coast to coast! I tour the parks the way you will be touring the parks – whether it is a “best day ever” on VIP Tour, strategizing on Genie+, or waltzing onto attractions with Express Pass, you won’t find a travel advisor with more passion or first hand experience.


There are four theme parks at the Walt Disney World Resort – Magic Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, Epcot and Animal Kingdom. Listed below are links to dining reviews, experiences, special events and other park favorites. As a general rule, I recommend two full days in Magic Kingdom and one full day in each of the other parks, regardless of age! If you don’t have this amount of time or are planning a last minute visit (within two months), consider a Private VIP Tour.

There are so many beautiful and memorable places to stay on the Disney property. The service is always top notch and you will want to be sure to allow extra time in your trip to soak up all of the fun things there are to do at your resort. Keep in mind that when you stay on property you will get to use Extra Magic Hours, make your dining reservations and FastPasses early, and have transportation around the property included. I feel so passionately about Disney Resorts being part of the overall vacation experience that I only work with clients booked on site. 

Resorts are divided into three categories:

  • Luxury – Within the gates of Walt Disney World Resort, Four Seasons is Central Florida’s only resort to receive the AAA Five Diamond Award. The Resort has a perfect blend of luxury experiences and Disney offerings—for family time, for romance, for golf, spa and everything between.
  • Deluxe – Deluxe resorts are the pinnacle of the Disney-owned options. They are in the best locations, most convenient to the parks.  These resorts offer a variety of dining including everything from quick serve and pool side to character dining and signature experiences. All will have multiple pools, including waterslides and splash areas, as well as many other recreation opportunities and amenities. Resort rooms are the most spacious and all have a balcony or patio.   Most rooms can sleep a family of 5, and villas offer accommodations for up to 13. Many offer concierge level accommodations.  Deluxe Resort guests enjoy extended evening theme park hours on select nights, as well as access to additional virtual queue opportunities.
  • Moderate – Moderate resorts are at a more favorable price point. They are located a bit further from the parks, generally speaking.   These resorts are motel style, with rooms opening to exterior hallways. Resort rooms are medium in size, but none will offer a balcony or patio.  Moderate resorts do have great pools with watersides, as well as both quick serve and sit down dining options. Some rooms can sleep a family of 5.
  • Value – Value resorts are the most cost effective way to stay on property in the middle of the magic! Like moderates, they are also motel style and are located the furthest from the parks. Resort rooms are the smallest in size, and none will offer a balcony or patio. While they do have pools, there are no watersides. All moderates will have quick serve dining, but they do not offer sit down dining. Most rooms have a maximum capacity of 4.

Resort Dining & Experiences

Some of our favorite places to eat in Disney aren’t even in the parks, but at the resorts!  That means you don’t need a park ticket OR a room to enjoy them.  One of the things I always encourage people to do is to try all the different dining options at your resort.  Every one offers unique and fun experiences!  Here are our reviews:  

Many of the deluxe resorts offer Water Mice / Boat Rentals and many of the moderate and deluxe resorts offer Surrey Bike Rentals. A few deluxe resorts offer cabana rentals.

A VIP Disney Dream Vacation

In working with so many blog readers and fantastic clients over the last two years, I’ve had a number of consults that start with…

It’s time to take my kids to Disney. I’ll be honest, my husband and I are not thrilled with the idea. Oh, and he hates waiting in lines…

There is a way to do Disney like this, and give the kids the most magical, memorable trip while staying in luxury accommodations and not worrying about a single detail! I know how…



Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser is a revolutionary new 2-night experience where you and your group will embark on a first-of-its-kind Star Wars adventure that’s your own. It’s the most immersive Star Wars story ever created—one where you live a bespoke experience and journey further into a Star Wars adventure than you ever dreamed possible.

As a Premier Level Advisor with Glass Slipper Concierge, I am recognized for providing the highest level of customer service, experience, and knowledge in the industry.  I use my personal connections and firsthand expertise to craft bespoke Disney trips for the most discerning clients.  On top of that, Disney vacations are expensive and I know how to get the best value for your time and money.  I am one of VERY FEW travel advisors with personal experience onboard the Star Wars Galactic Starcruiser and will offer invaluable service to my clients.
