Value Hotels in Disney’s Animal Kingdom Area

Need to find a budget stay? Round up enough dollars to book a Disney value hotel. You will NEVER regret it.

The three most important bonuses from a stay at a Disney Value hotel are:

  • FREE Disney Shuttle buses to each theme park
  • Atmosphere. The Disney Magic is alive and well here. There’s a non-stop buzz and it’s electrifying for kids and families. 
  • Extra fast passes, and the ability to book those fast passes months before your trip. 

We recommend Disney All Star Resort. 

No.1: Disney’s All-Star Movies resort

Details here

No.2: Disney’s All-Star Music resort

Details here

No.3: Disney’s All-Star Sports resort

Details here

(See below for a detailed guide to budget hotels in Disney)

Value Hotels in ESPN Wide World of Sports Area

These two are slightly more expensive to book than the three value resorts at Disney mentioned above. 

But really, making the choice between value resorts comes down to the fun theming or styling you prefer. 

Both these resorts have a retro feel in common, with a nod to the fun past times and popular icons of mid-century too. 

No.1: Disney’s Art of Animation Resort

Details here

No.2: Disney’s Pop Century Resort
