Others offer unrivaled fast and easy access to the Disney parks, and others are in exotic, pinch-me locales. And the best part is, you don’t have to choose only one! Disney Vacation Club points give you an access to every hotel in five different locations across the US.
So, what are you waiting for? Check out the best of the best Disney Vacation Club locations and start daydreaming about your next trip!
Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas – Jambo House
Walt Disney World Resort in Florida offers most of the best Disney Vacation Club hotels, so it’s the perfect place to start. There are two Disney World Vacation Club hotels at Animal Kingdom – Jambo House and Kidani Village – but the former takes the lead. At Jambo House, you will feel like you’re actually on safari. The natural, earthy colors of the villas are so relaxing, and they have authentic African décor. You will be able to sit out on your terrace and look out at over 30 species of wildlife, including zebras, flamingoes, and giraffes.
But the pièce de résistance is the Uzima Pool. It is an 11,000-foot swimming pool shaded by exotic trees with on-theme deck chairs and a natural beach.
Boulder Ridge Villas at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge
This next amazing Disney Vacation Club hotel might also be in Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, but its spiritual home is elsewhere. Hopping over the Atlantic, this resort pays homage to America’s wonderful National Parks. Boulder Ridge Villas encapsulates everything great about the country’s natural wonders.
Nestled on Bay Lake, this is one of the most “remote” resorts, so you can feel close to nature. It offers fine dining experiences with farm-to-table cuisine and a range of activities on site. There are also several pools with a poolside bar and all the amenities you need to make your wilderness resort experience special.
The Villas at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa
If you are going to Disneyland Resort in California, there is only one DVC hotel you need to consider, and that’s Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel. The amenities on offer at this Disney hotel go above and beyond. There are two onsite restaurants, three swimming pools, and there are private cabanas available, too. And not only that, residents of the Grand Californian get their own entrance to the Disney California Adventure Park!
The Downtown Disney District is very close by, too. Want to relax after a day of riding roller coasters and chasing down Mickey? You can head to their Tenaya Stone Spa for a massage, facial, or one of the other treatments they offer.
This luxury resort might have some of the highest Disney Vacation Club prices, but for a good reason. So, make sure you reach your DVC point minimum to book your next break here.
Bay Lake Tower at Disney’s Contemporary Resort
Most of the DVC hotels at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida are cozy and comfy villas. But if you’re a high-flyer, the Bay Lake Tower in Disney’s Contemporary Resort might be more your speed. The suites are modern, but they are anything but minimalist. Think leather chairs, low mood lighting, and futuristic décor in the lobby. The Top of the Lounge offers stunning 360-degree views, and you have access to pools in other resorts as well as this one.
The best part? You can walk along the Sky Way Bridge straight to Magic Kingdom. Yes, you would be within walking distance of the actual Magic Kingdom. Think about watching those epic nightly fireworks a stone’s throw from your hotel room. That alone is worth keeping an eye on the best Disney Vacation Club discounts so you can bag yourself a bargain.
Disney’s Polynesian Villas & Bungalows
Want to feel like you’re in the South Pacific whilst staying close to the action at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida? Disney’s Polynesian Villas & Bungalows is the perfect compromise. At this DVC hotel, you can stay at Disney’s only resort with overwater bungalows, which are so spacious, you can bring the whole family. Each bungalow is its own self-contained space with a kitchenette and private deck.
But if you prefer not to cook on vacation, you can enjoy fine Asian and Polynesian fusion cooking as well as American classics. The Polynesian Villas could not be closer to the Disney Parks, so you’d be in a prime location. A short monorail ride takes you straight to Magic Kingdom or Epcot. And if you would prefer, you can watch the fireworks right from your deck.
Aulani, Disney Vacation Club Villas
Ready for a dream vacation that you and your kids will remember forever? Then head to Aulani, Disney Vacation Club’s resort in Ko Olina, Hawaii. The sprawling estate offers no less than 11 pools and easy access to the beach. Whether you want to relax on a lazy river or snorkel with fish, there is a pool for you. And this resort might not be near a Disney park, but there is plenty of Disney magic at Aulani. Visits from Disney friends, like every Disney hotel, are common. And there are plenty of Disney-themed activities in the kid’s clubhouse.
There are plenty of opportunities to enjoy Hawaii outside the resort with Disney excursions. Plus, the hotel works with local residents so that there are tons of authentic Hawaiian cultural experiences. The resort hosts a nightly A Lū‘au, and there’s island-inspired cuisine on the menu.
