There are a number of hotels not featured on this list, which are located inside the Walt Disney World Resort. These include;
- Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World Resort
- Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek
- Waldorf Astoria Orlando
- B Resort & Spa Lake Buena Vista
That’s because while these properties are located within the Walt Disney World Resort they are not owned or operated by Disney and instead by a third party.
Is The Swan & Dolphin Owned By Disney?
While most other third-party hotels inside the Walt Disney World Resort are located in the Disney Springs area, two hotels don’t and those are the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin.
These hotels are located next to EPCOT alongside a number of Disney-owned properties including Disney’s Yacht Club Resort and Disney’s Beach Club Resort.
However, they are in fact owned by Sheraton (Dolphin) and Westin (Swan) both of which are under the Marriot brand.
As such both hotels can not only be booked using the Walt Disney World website but also the Marriot website too.
Given that the Swan & Dolphin are not owned by Disney, the service at these hotels isn’t always to the standard that guests have come to know and love so be sure to keep that in mind if you choose to book here.
How Long Would It Take You To Sleep In Every Room At Disney World?
At the time of writing, there are currently 33,942 rooms which are owned and operated by Disney at the Walt Disney World Resort.
As such if you were to spend one night in each room it would take you 33,942 nights, the equivalent of almost 93 years of continuous nightly stays.
If you take an average of 8 hours of sleep per night, then it would take you 271,536 hours to sleep in every room at Disney World which is equivalent to 11,314 days or approximately 31 years.
Which Hotel Rooms Are The Cheapest At Walt Disney World?
Typically, you’ll find that rooms at one of Disney World’s Value Resorts are the cheapest.
Currently, Disney has five Value Resorts. They are;
- Disney’s All-Star Movies Resort
- Disney’s All-Star Music Resort
- Disney’s All-Star Sports Resort
- Disney’s Art of Animation Resort
- Disney’s Pop Century Resort
Disney Value Resorts are designed to provide affordable accommodations for families and budget-conscious travellers.
They offer amenities such as themed pools, food courts, and shuttle transportation to the Disney theme parks.
The rooms at these resorts are typically smaller and more basic than those at Disney’s higher-end resorts, but they still feature Disney theming and decor.
Which Is The Largest Walt Disney World Resort?
The largest Walt Disney World Resort hotel in terms of acreage is Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground, which covers approximately 750 acres of land.
However, the largest hotel in the terms of the number of rooms is Disney’s Pop Century Resort, which has a total of 2,880 rooms.
Which Is The Smallest Walt Disney World Resort?
With 300 rooms, Disney’s Riviera Resort is the smallest entire hotel owned and operated by Disney at the Walt Disney World Resort.
There are other areas of hotels which are smaller such as;
- The Cabins at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort – 409 rooms
- Disney’s Polynesian Villas & Bungalows – 380 rooms
- Boulder Ridge Villas at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge – 136 rooms
- The Villas at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa – 147 rooms

- Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas – Jambo House – 214 rooms
