Value Seasons and Rate Ranges per Disney Resort Category

Art of Animation

Saving money so you can get to Disney begins by saving money before the vacation, as well as while on the actual vacation.  There is no better way to begin these savings than by knowing when the Disney Value Seasons assigned to the resort category you hope to stay in during your vacation.  The Value Seasons are different based on each of the categories.

The resort categories include the following:

  • Value Category – The least expensive of the categories.  Here you will find a variety of highly themed areas specific to the resort chosen.  Each resort includes several pools, a gift shop, a quick service restaurant and accommodations of around 260 square feet.
  • Moderate Category – This is the middle of the road as far as price.  These resorts are not as “loudly” themed (i.e. Value includes large icons, etc. which you do not find in the Moderate resorts).  Quiet pools are hidden throughout the resort, with a larger pool also offering many attractions and a whirlpool.  Additional amenities include a gift shop, a quick service and full service restaurant and accommodations of around 340 square feet.
  • Deluxe Category – These resorts are considered the top of the line in Disney accommodations.  The resorts are elegant and include an elegant pool and whirlpool setting.  Additional amenities include a gift shop, a quick service and full service restaurant.  The accommodations square footage greatly ranges depending on the accommodation type.  For instance, the studios at Bay Lake Tower are approximately 340 square feet, while the 3 bedrooms are approximately 2000 square feet!

To help you further choose which of these resort categories works for you and the dates you want to travel to Disney, please use the following chart.  The chart will help you better determine the dates when the best rates per resort category are available.  Note: the rates for the Resort Category are listed in a “from” “to” range, as prices per night vary based on room location within a resort.  The rates listed are as follows:

  • Value Category - Disney’s Pop Century Resort
  • Moderate Category – Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort

    Thanks for the chart. I shared this on Facebook to show my friends who ask why I do so much research for a trip. There are so very many factors in getting the best value at WDW.
