When I worked for Disney Vacation Club I had my first encounter with Deluxe Villas at Walt Disney World and I was immediately amazed! They are a great way for families or large groups to get the most out of their vacation and here is the best part, you don’t need to be a member of Disney Vacation Club to book them! Your Me and the Mouse Travel specialist is your key to these incredible properties at Disney World. Today’s blog is an insight to why I love Deluxe Villas!

I was part of the opening team for the Treehouse Villas, Kidani Village at Animal Kingdom, and Bay Lake Tower at The Contemporary. I toured and stayed at these resorts as well as many others at Disney World. There are a lot of reasons to love them but I will narrow my list down to room size, amenities, and location.

Starting with room size, these resorts offer a standard studio up to three-bedroom villas. What’s great with these options is your ability to find a room size that fits your family or group. I’ve booked a stay for a couple and their two married adult children. They wanted to stay together but have their own space. A three-bedroom villa was a great selection for them. They could enjoy the living room as a gathering spot then retreat to their own rooms at night. When they returned they said it was the best decision they could have made. They felt like they were at home.

What makes the amenities at Deluxe Villas so great? A lot of things! First of all, they come with either a kitchenette or a full kitchen. Sometimes on vacation you can’t beat sleeping in and making your own breakfast or enjoying a late night snack. With a villa you can do that. You can make the family Mickey Mouse shaped pancakes before heading to the parks or baking cookies for a midnight snack! Villas are also located at Deluxe Resorts so you have access to amazing swimming pools and incredible restaurants. In my opinion, I feel Deluxe Resorts have a less crowded feel as well.

These villas are all in great locations. Whether you love being next to the parks or away from it all, Deluxe Villas offers you the choice. There is nothing like staying at the Treehouse Villas at Saratoga Springs. They are built up in the air like a treehouse in the woods in a quiet and peaceful setting, yet close to Disney Springs. Like a great view? Check out Bay Lake Tower at The Contemporary. You will enjoy the views overlooking the Magic Kingdom and of course the firework shows!

When you are planning your next vacation with your Me and the Mouse Travel specialists ask them about a Deluxe Villa. Don’t forget, you don’t need to be a Disney Vacation Club member to stay at them. Contact your travel specialists today. You won’t be disappointed!
