The Ultimate Guide to Disney World Value Resorts
Walt Disney World has a resort for every type of family, every price range, and in many different locations. Disney offers value resorts, moderate resorts, and deluxe resorts. Disney has 5 value resorts: Pop Century, Art of Animation, All Star Music, All Star Sport, and All Star Music.
Disney’s value resorts are lively, full of color, fun for the whole family and most importantly offer a great value. Here are some of the great features of value resorts:
- Every value resort has it’s own theme and even features larger than life characters like Woody and Buzz!
- The value resorts provide access to great amenities like free bus transportation, access to extra magic hours, and free airport transportation.
- Each resort has a food court, pool, pool bar, and in-room delivery.
Disney’s Pop Century
Pop Century is based around 20th century American pop culture. It is located near Animal Kingdom and the ESPN World Wide of Sports. Pop Century is my favorite value resort; the rooms are completely renovated, it’s the smallest value resort and it’s located on the new Disney Skyliner System!
Pop Century also has great pools! Make sure to bring Pool Toys for your kids and a cute Disney tumbler for your drinks! The Hippy Dippy Pool is so much fun so make sure you check it out!
Disney’s Art of Animation Resort
Disney’s newest value resort is Art of Animation celebrating the history of Disney animation. Disney designed Art of Animation with families in mind and offers family suites that sleep up to six people. Art of Animation is also located near Animal Kingdom and the ESPN World Wide of Sports. Additionally, Art of Animation is located on the new Disney Skyliner System too!
TIP: If you staying with a few people, make sure you bring a Charging Station! Disney resorts don’t have that many outlets or wall plugs so charging your devices can be difficult!
Disney’s All Star Music Resort
All Star Music Resort features music like jazz, country, calypso, show tunes, and rock n’ roll. This resort is located near Animal Kingdom and the ESPN Wide World of Sports. The resort rooms are currently undergoing renovation and should be completed by the end of 2020.
Disney’s All Star Movies Resort
All Star Movies Resort is based on movies featuring The Mighty Ducks, Herbie The Love Bug, One Hundred and One Dalmatians, and Toy Story. Like the other value resorts, it is located near Animal Kingdom and the ESPN Wide World of Sports. The All Star Movies Resort is the only All Star currently renovated. They completed a full renovation of this property in 2019!
Disney’s All Star Sport Resort
All Star Sports Resort is themed after sports like football, baseball, basketball, and surfing! This resort is located near Animal Kingdom and the ESPN World Wide of Sports. This resort frequently houses students visiting the ESPN World Wide of Sports for sport competitions. The All Star Sports resort will be renovated in 2021.
