A unique Disney experience at three larger-than-life hotels which are big on fun and entertainment.
Disney’s All-Star Music Resort, with its whimsical guitar-shaped pool, pays tribute to a host of music genres, including country, jazz, rock ‘n’ roll and Broadway musicals. Disney’s All-Star Movies Resort parades many favourite Disney characters, from 101 Dalmatians to the ‘stars’ of Toy Story – there’s even a giant Herbie – and complimentary screenings of Disney films add to the magic. Disney’s All-Star Sports Resort showcases a variety of sports, including baseball, basketball, football, tennis and surfing. Disney’s All-Star Resorts offer great value, and we feel the casual atmosphere, informal dining and variety of themes and activities make this the ideal choice for families.
Disney’s Port Orleans Resort is a true throw-back to the days of Mark Twain, giant paddle-steamers and antebellum mansions. The French Quarter is where New Orleans springs to life amidst ornate architecture, cobblestone streets and horse-drawn carriage rides. A gentle stroll along the lush banks of the Sassagoula River leads to Riverside, where Southern themed accommodations line a Mississippi-style waterway. What we love here is the genuine flavour of the Deep South blending with activities such as jogging, bicycle and boat rentals, a terrific spa, and six swimming pools. So, too, the dining options, which include a food court, the casual Boatwright’s Dining Hall, and Scat Cat’s Club, where strains of Mardi Gras jazz fill the air.
This is Walt Disney World’s very own African safari adventure, its magnificent savannahs home to some 200 animals and birds. It’s a family’s dream, where young and old alike can marvel at the wildlife, participate in exciting animal programmes and enjoy all the facilities of a truly deluxe resort. Two restaurants and a quick-service outlet provide a variety of dining options, themed swimming pools and a health club will keep you active, and Simba's Cubhouse is a hive of fun for those aged 3-12. The bedrooms are furnished in the style of an African lodge, and if you stay in one of the Savanna rooms, you get to gaze out over the zebra, giraffes and gazelles as they roam free in their natural habitat.
If you want the option of catering for yourself, Disney’s Old Key West Resort has the answer. A mix of studios with kitchenette, and larger 1 and 2-bedroom villas with fully equipped kitchen, mean that you can eat in when you wish. True to its name, the resort has a distinct feel of the delightful Florida Keys, the tranquil community of Conch Flats an island hamlet of waterways, palm trees and Victorian architecture. When you do want to dine out, a family-style restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, and if you’re short of time, Good's Food to Go outlet will come in handy. When it’s time to cool off, one of four pools will welcome you to its picturesque setting.
