Why Book a DVC Resort Instead of a Moderate Resort?

April 23, 2024

When you rent DVC points, you can save up to 65% of what it costs to book directly through Disney!  This often means that you can rent a DVC villa for the same price as a room at a Moderate Disney Resort.  Between these two resort types, why is it worthwhile switching to a DVC resort?

Prime Locations

DVC resorts are located in some of the best locations throughout the Walt Disney World Resort.  Most are near the theme parks, and some like Bay Lake Tower, the Grand Floridian, Beach Club, and BoardWalk are walking distance from a theme park.  

More Transportation Options

If you aren’t walking distance from a theme park, many of the DVC resorts offer transportation other than buses.  For example, Riviera has the Skyliner for access to EPCOT and Hollywood Studios.  Bay Lake Tower, the Grand Floridian, and the Polynesian are all along the monorail loop for access to the Magic Kingdom and EPCOT.  The Grand Floridian and Polynesian also have ferry boats to take guests to the Magic Kingdom.  

Although Old Key West and Saratoga Springs are not located near a theme park, they offer ferry boats that take guests to Disney Springs.  

More Space and Amenities

With accommodations as large as Three Bedroom Grand Villas that sleep up to 12 guests, DVC villas are among the most spacious accommodations in Disney World.  The One Bedroom Villas and larger also include a living room for more space to gather with friends and family and full kitchens equipped with dishes, pots, pans, and utensils, so you can cook a meal.  Families will also appreciate the washer and dryer located in each of the One Bedroom Villas and larger units.  Deluxe Studios have the added convenience of kitchenettes with a microwave, toaster, and mini-fridge.

Another great feature of all DVC villas are the private balconies.  Even the smallest DVC units at Disney World (the Tower Studios at Riviera) have a balcony.  They are the perfect place to enjoy a cup of coffee and unwind.  

More Restaurants

Citricos at the Grand Floridian

Since DVC resorts are Deluxe Resorts, they are home to more dining options.  They each offer quick service and table service restaurants.  Some even offer signature dining.  For instance, the Grand Floridian is home to Citricos, Narcoosee’s, and Victoria & Albert’s.

Additional Perks

Spaceship Earth at EPCOT

Through 2025, guests at Deluxe Resorts (including all of the DVC Resorts) can enjoy Extended Evening Theme Park Hours!  These nights give guests a chance to visit a theme park for a couple of hours after the park has closed to the general public.  Extended Evening Theme Park Hours are a fun way to enjoy the attractions with lower wait times and cooler temperatures.

DVC villas have so much to offer!  Book one for your next Disney World vacation.  Browse the confirmed reservations, or check DVC villa availability to get started.
