Disney World offers a variety of on-property resort hotels. These value-priced accommodations come with many of the same perks as the higher priced moderate and deluxe resorts offer, including free on-property transportation, extra magic hours, and the Disney dining plan. More than a third of Disney World's on-property hotel accommodations fall into the "value" category, where guests find larger-than-life theming, swimming pools and playgrounds, arcade rooms, and standard amenities.

Value resort rates are $85 to $210 a night ($212 to $457 for family suites). Camping rates are $50.00 to $145.00 a night.
