Benefits of Staying Club Level
Guest staying at a Walt Disney World Deluxe Resort have the option of booking a club-level room on a private, concierge floor. Club-level rooms and suites come with a significant emphasis on special treatment and amenities. But is it worth the additional cost?

Popular Concierge Services
VIP Resort Check In
From the moment you arrive at your hotel the special treatment begins. You’ll check in to the hotel with the concierge staff, no need to wait in line with the general public! This is also a good time to meet the staff that will be taking care of you during your stay. If your concierge team is busy assisting other guests, you can wait in the lounge and enjoy the complimentary snacks and beverages.
The most valuable benefit to staying club-level is access to the concierge lounge where light meals and snacks are provided throughout the day. You'll also have access to unlimited soft drinks, water, beer and wine at no additional cost.
Each morning a continental breakfast is served. Expect a wide array of coffees, fresh juice, cereals, pastries, yogurt, granola, bagels, oatmeal and fresh fruit.
Mid-day snacks are typically pretzel bites, Goldfish crackers, chocolate chip cookies and popular candies. Beverages are on hand as well. When you’re coming back to the hotel for a mid-day break, this is perfect.
Club Level Lounge Access
Additional Lounge Offerings
- Wine-and-Cheese Tasting - In late afternoon a wide array of cheeses, crackers and wines are offered.
- Dinner offering - Each Disney concierge lounge provides hot appetisers from the feature restaurant at the hotel. If you’re a light eater this can be a meal in itself and a great way to cut costs.
- Dessert and Cordials - Later in the evening a fantastic selection of fine chocolates, pastries and cordials are offered in the lounges.
Club Level Rooms
Club-level accommodations can be an additional $90 to $250+ more per night over a regular room, depending on the resort, time of year and view. But with that additional cost comes a lot of value. You might actually be able to save money by staying club-level if you use the lounge to your advantage.
Having access to the concierge lounge can replace several meals and snacks. You might find that the evening appetisers are enough to count as dinner or they can supplement a lighter meal later on. Skip desserts in the restaurants and parks! The dessert offerings in the lounge are decadent and you can try as many as you want. Having access to unlimited beverages can be a great savings too, especially if you enjoy beer and/or wine. You're free to take a few beverages to go as well.
Is Club Level Worth the Cost?
Most club-level rooms are regular rooms: two queens and a sleeper sofa or one king and a sleeper sofa. Most will accommodate up to five guests (plus one infant). There are some exceptions however: Disney’s Wilderness Lodge and Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge and some rooms at Disney's Beach Club Resort sleep four guests (plus one infant) and do not have a sleeper sofa. Suites are also offered on the concierge floor and are popular with honeymooners. Suites that are not on the concierge floor usually come with lounge privileges.
To access the concierge floor you’ll need a specially coded Magic Band to activate the elevator button.
Club-level rooms are priced according to the view they offer. Unless the view is ultra important to you, standard or garden view is fine for most. The one exception however is Disney's Polynesian Village Resort where a Lagoon View room is well worth the additional cost.
Club Level Secrets
In general, a Garden View Club-Level room is about the same price as a preferred view room. For example, a Theme Park View room at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort is about the same cost as a Garden View Club-Level room. The Garden-View Club-Level room is a much better value when you consider the amenities you'll receive.
Club-Level accommodations sometimes included special offers and discounts. Magical Vacations Travel often has exclusive club-level rates for Disney's Beach Club Resort and for Disney's Polynesian Village Resort.
