Disney Vacation Guide to Disney’s Moderate Resorts

If you wish to stay in a Disney World Resort but your budget doesn’t allow for a vacation in a Deluxe Resort or Villa, you still have options!

Disney’s Moderate Resorts

Disney’s Moderate Resorts don’t offer spas or all of the finer amenities of Deluxe or Villa resorts, but as the Disney Vacation Guide has discovered, these enchanting accommodations do fit better in most budgets.

Downtown Disney

In the Downtown Disney Area you’ll find two Moderate Resorts; the Port Orleans Resort – Riverside and the Port Orleans Resort – French Quarter. The grand 2,048-room Riverside property was inspired by the look and feel of rural Louisiana while the French Quarter Resort looks like something out of this historic part of New Orleans.

The Magic Kingdom

In the Magic Kingdom, you’ll find the Cabins at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort. Enjoy the American Frontier theme in total luxury in a cozy cabin among 700+ acres of wooded grounds.


In the Epcot area of Walt Disney World there’s the Caribbean Beach Resort. This Moderate Resort puts you in a beachside paradise. Kick back in this tropical wonderland on the 45-acre Barefoot Bay.

Animal Kingdom

The American Southwest-themed Coronado Springs Resort in the Animal Kingdom is the perfect Moderately priced place for your romantic getaway. Its setting on a glistening 22-acre lake is visually stunning as is the building itself, inspired by Mexico’s Spanish-colonial architecture.
