Walt Disney World in Orlando is the place where your inner child can come out and play – no matter how old your outer child is. But because your outer child will have to pay the bills sooner or later, it is a good idea to look at cheap hotels in Disney World for your trip.

There are four parks within the Disney World Resort – Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Disney\s Animal Kingdom – as well as two water parks and two other entertainment areas. And in addition to the resort hotels which are located within the park itself there are also loads of cheap hotels in Disney World in the area around the park. Plus, even within the park the Disney folks have thoughtfully made a few budget resort hotels for those of us who are not up for a big splurge on our vacation hotel.

If you would prefer to look outside the resort for cheap hotels in Disney World, most hotels outside but near to the park will have regular shuttle services to get you and your family to and from the resort each day. If seeing Disney World is a priority for your trip, make sure this shuttle service exists at every hotel you consider – and make sure it is included in the cost of your stay.

The cheap hotels in Disney World which are part of the resort itself are Disney\’s All-Star Movies Resort (hotel dedicated to Disney’s movie characters), Disney’s All-Star Music Resort (fun hotel with a musical theme – and not just Disney music), Disney’s All-Star Sports Resort (sports-themed hotel), and Disney’s Pop Century Resort (theme hotel of 20th century pop culture). All of these hotels feature several outdoor pools and playgrounds, in-room pizza delivery, babysitting and child care services, and “pak-n-play” cribs are available.
