For some of you who are truly crazy Disney fans, you might have the dream to stay at every Disney resort on property. I know it’s definitely on my Disney Bucket list to be able to do that someday. Or even if you won’t be able to stay at all of them, perhaps you’d like to just make the trek to visit every single one at some point on life. Lots of the resorts have plenty to offer, like great restaurants that are worth checking out. It’s also fun just to look around at the amazing décor and themeing that Disney does!
If you want to keep track of which resorts you’ve been to/stayed at, I made up this handy checklist. The Disney restaurant checklist was pretty popular so I figured why not keep track of resorts too? One note – I wasn’t sure whether or not I should add the Swan and Dolphin hotels to the list. They kind of fall in the gray area of whether they’re a Disney resort or not, but for this I decided to include them, but as one entry instead of two/ You can always separate them if you like for your own checklist!
I’ve also recently updated this list to include the new Riviera resort!

I’ve stayed at 17 of them! I’ll be able to check off another one soon, when I take a trip at the end of August and stay at the Polynesian. Other than that I still haven’t stayed at the Beach Club, Riviera, or the Swan/Dolphin.
I’ve honestly enjoyed my stay at every Disney resort I’ve been to so far. If I had to pick a favorite I would probably go with Animal Kingdom Lodge, though I will admit that the atmosphere and location of the Boardwalk made that one a close second! And of course the Contemporary is a great option for the location to Magic Kingdom!
How about you? How many places on the Disney Resort Checklist have you stayed? Which resort would you most like to be able to stay at in the future?
I’ve stayed at the Dolphin, Wilderness Lodge, and Port Orleans Riverside. I’ve visited the Swan, Contemporary, Polynesian, Grand Floridian, Beach Club, Boardwalk, and Yacht Club. I’ve seen Old Key West, Saratoga Springs on ME or regular bus stops, and Coronado Springs on the way to AK. This fall, we’ll visit Fort Wilderness as we have a dinner scheduled at Trail’s End. So the only resort category I’ve never seen is a value! (Although I did see Pop’s entrance on the way to the Dolphin– I’m not going to count that, though!) As far as bucket list– the only other resorts I am interested in staying at are GF and the Poly. I wouldn’t stay at a moderate that wasn’t POR, and I’d only stay at a value if I went on a budget friends trip. It is fun to visit the different resorts for meals, though!
