Let’s face it; Disney is loved by everyone from toddlers to senior singles. Furthermore, those that have heard of Disney World and its wonders all want to visit at least one of its many resorts, which is why we’ve compiled a list of the top 4 Disney places you simply have to check out.
1. Grand Floridian Resort
We can definitely recommend the Grand Floridian Resort and Spa to everyone who wants to enjoy charms of the era long-gone. Namely, the complex takes you back to a Victorian age with its recognizable architecture and extravagant accommodations. It also boasts its own wedding pavilion on the shores of the Seven Seas Lagoon, as well as Victoria & Albert’s, one of the finest restaurants in Florida.
When it comes to fun for kids, the Grand Floridian Resort is home to the My Disney Girl’s Perfectly Princess Tea Party. This event, aside from the Wonderland Tea Party which is also hosted at this resort, is one of the most popular gathering places for all the little princesses that visit Disney World.
At the BoardWalk hotel, you and your family will have a chance to participate in countless fun carnival games that can be encountered in the booths along the Atlantic-style boardwalk.
While your kids will love the games and the rides this hotel offers, you can indulge yourself in an evening entertainment either at the Atlantic Dance nightclub, or a piano bar named Jellyrolls.
As far as dining goes, this hotel is home to Kouzzina by Cat Cora and the Flying Fish Café, so even dinner can’t get boring here. Once you’re done with all the attractions at the BoardWalk, just take a boat ride and you’ll be either at Epcot or at the Hollywood Studios.
3. Saratoga Springs
This resort is named after one of America’s first vacation destinations in New York. And believe us when we say that the Disney version is probably even better than the original!
Saratoga Springs in Disney World is filled with lovely cottages and horse-racing motifs that are capable of bringing its guests to the times when the world seemed to revolve more slowly. It also features a full-service spa on premises, perfect for relaxing after a hard day of riding every roller coaster in Disney World. The resort is very close to Downtown Disney and the Lake Buena Vista golf course. Note that Saratoga Springs is a part of the Disney Vacation Club, so the rooms offer either a kitchenette or a full kitchen.
4. Wilderness Lodge
Another tribute to an iconic place, the Wilderness Lodge was designed after Old Faithful Lodge in Yellowstone National Park. It has its own spouting geysers and hot springs, and a swimming pool area with a waterfall.
The main restaurant here is Artist Point which offers Pacific-Northwest cuisine. As far as children go, the Wilderness Lodge includes the all-time favorite Whispering Canyon Café.
The Wilderness Lodge surely has a lot to offer, but once you’re ready to check something else out, you can catch a bus to Epcot, the Hollywood Studios, and the Animal Kingdom, or a boat that will ferry you to the Magic Kingdom and back.
