Disney World Orlando Moderate Resorts.
Disney World Orlando Florida has over 30’000 a room for guests and it’s always expanding. From Value rooms to Deluxe Villas Disney World has something for everyone. So with that in mind, I have tried to put together an overall view of each resort and what it has to offer, hopefully, it will help you decide what is right for you. All resorts have good transportation links, buses, monorail, taxis, sky liner and self-drive (there is ample parking however parking charges may change so please check before you travel)
I am trying to list them in some sort of order from the Value in my previous post through to the deluxe in other posts, seeing as there are so many to choose from. This post is for the Moderate Resorts within Disney World Orlando. We have stayed on-site and eaten in lots of different resort hotel restaurants and we always like to explore while there.
