Whether your family has their sights set on Disney World or any of the other theme parks in the area, Orlando is filled with phenomenal hotels that are all in the heart of the action. At the top of the accommodations list of course are Disney-themed hotels. When it comes to staying and playing in the city of endless fun, here are five reasons to stay at a Disney hotel.

The Disney name has been sculpting unique family experiences ever since Walt Disney’s first drawing of Mickey Mouse and one-of-a-kind Disney hotels are no exception. From exotic to family themed and every magical accommodation in between, Disney hotels are the definition of unique.
If your family wants to feel like they are on a big game African reserve in the middle of Orlando, then Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge is just one of the many unique stays in the area. The lodge has a desert cabin feel complete with giraffes, zebras, and elephants roaming the property.
Fun With a Theme
Walt Disney World made its name with theme parks, so it’s no surprise all Disney hotels have a theme as well. Sure, the Animal Kingdom Lodge and the Polynesian Resort will make your family feel like they’re in another part of the world, but some Disney hotels will actually make you a part of the action.
For example, Disney’s Art of Animation Resort Hotel offers families four different animation-themed suites: Cars, The Little Mermaid, Nemo, and The Lion King. While there, your kids can experience how animated movies make it from an idea to the big screen through storyboard artwork and interactive tutorials.
Proximity to the Parks
Another great reason to stay at Disney hotels while vacationing in Orlando is their proximity to the theme parks. All Disney hotels and resorts offer free shuttle rides to Walt Disney World, Animal Kingdom, and Epcot.
In addition, resorts that are on theme park property, like the Boardwalk Inn and the Animal Kingdom Lodge, offer unique transportation options including riverboat rides and gondolas. When it comes to booking your stay be sure to find the perfect hotel, based on price and proximity to the parks, for your needs.
All of the Disney hotels and resorts offer guests an endless number of unbelievable amenities including pools, unique park access, and fine dining options. The Contemporary Resort for example is situated above Disney World’s famous monorail station and includes stylish art-deco rooms, cabana rentals and Jet Ski rentals at the resort’s lake beach, and 24-hour room service.
Vacation is all about relaxing and Disney hotels offer the most relaxing, beautiful accommodations in Orlando’s theme park country. For a tropical change of pace, Disney’s Polynesian Resort gives visitors the feeling that they’re relaxing the days away on a tropical island. Rooms include garden and lagoon views, Polynesian restaurants, a Marina with sailboats, and a nightly all-you-can-eat luau.
