Welcome to the magical world of Disney! If you’re planning a visit to Disney World and seeking the perfect blend of comfort, affordability, and enchantment, look no further. In this blog, we’ll unveil the best moderate resort options at Disney World, ensuring a memorable stay that fits your budget and offers an immersive experience.
Although Art of Animation falls under the category of a “Value” resort, the family suites can be deemed “Moderate” due to their affordable pricing and spacious accommodations. These suites feature a bedroom with a queen bed, a living area with a pull-out sofa, and a Murphy bed. Which conveniently folds down over a dining table, a well-equipped kitchenette, and the added convenience of two full bathrooms! This abundance of space makes it an ideal choice for larger families.
The Cabins at Fort Wilderness Campground
The Cabins at Fort Wilderness Campground offers a unique accommodation option for families. These one-bedroom cabins sleep six and include a full kitchen! They also have a private deck, parking space, and a charcoal grill. The houses might be the best option if you want a personal space to relax between theme park days. The campground is huge, so you may want to ask your travel agent about renting a golf cart to get yourself around.
