A Look at Disney Deluxe Villas and Why You Should Stay in One Instead of a Hotel Room
If you're planning a Walt Disney World (or other Disney) vacation, did you know that traditional hotel rooms are not your only option?
Disney Deluxe Villas are a separate category of accommodations that are part of the Disney Vacation Club (DVC) suite of properties (DVC is Disney's version of a timeshare program). Deluxe Villas tend to be less well known to Disney travelers (who are not DVC members). There are Disney Deluxe Villas at Walt Disney World, Disneyland Resort and other destinations away from Disney Parks. What many people don't realize, however, is that these upscale accommodations are available for booking by non-DVC-members, making them a great option to consider -- particularly in three specific scenarios.
I often describe the Deluxe Villas as being the Disney equivalent of a condominium, so you can think of these villas as Deluxe Disney condos.
Most of the properties at Walt Disney World are linked to a corresponding Disney Deluxe Resort, but there are three standalone villa properties as well. Villas are available in several configurations, including studios (similar to a standard hotel room), one-bedroom villas, two-bedroom villas and grand villas, which are the largest. There are also several very unique options among Disney Deluxe Villas, including the Bora Bora Bungalows at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort, the Cascade Cabins at Disney's Wilderness Lodge and the Treehouse Villas at Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa.

There are other great benefits to the Disney Deluxe Villas as well, but these are three common reasons as to why you may wish to consider the Villas as an option for your next Walt Disney World or Disneyland vacation.
