The Definition of a Luxury Vacation at Walt Disney World Resort

Luxury travel has become an increasingly popular topic in the travel industry and as a Luxury Travel Advisor and Deluxe Disney Specialist, I am sometimes asked what defines a luxury Walt Disney World vacation.

What is Luxury Travel?

There are many ways to define a luxury vacation. One of my favourite definitions comes from Nyssa P. Chopra at TheCultureur.com in her post What is Luxury Travel? Ms. Chopra captures the essence of luxury travel quite well as being “more about the experience” … “being able to fuel your needs” …and… “an appreciation for the finer things in life tempered with the hidden gems of a destination’s local culture.”

Additional relevant quotes gathered by Ms. Chopra include:

  • “Luxury travel is about sanity, time and exceptional experiences” (Lyndsey Ueberroth);
  • “Luxury is about unique experiences that can’t be replicated elsewhere” (Chris Warren-Gash) and
  • “Luxury travel means experiencing destinations in inspirational, unprecedented ways on your terms” (Giuseppe Lama).

So how does this translate when it comes to a luxury Walt Disney World vacation? What defines luxury at Walt Disney World?

Without question a luxury Walt Disney World vacation delivers on all of these definitions — and then some.

The luxury Walt Disney World vacation begins by choosing a Deluxe Disney Resort that will meet or surpass your expectations for the finer things in Disney life.

A room at one of Disney’s AAA Four Diamond Rated Deluxe Resorts is a good first step towards building your luxury Disney vacation. Certainly a Club Level room at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, or a Bora Bora Bungalow on the shores of Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort are two ways to help ensure a sense of calm respite and serenity amidst the hustle and bustle of Walt Disney World Resort.

Exclusive Experiences and VIP Treatment, Disney Style

The possibility of unique, exclusive experiences is all around you at Walt Disney World. But the average Disney traveller often isn’t aware of these exclusive experiences, or simply cannot budget for them. Custom VIP Tours, surfing before park hours at Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park, or watching the magic and wonder on your child’s face as they attend Disney’s Perfectly Princess Tea are just a few examples of many exclusive Disney experiences that simply cannot be replicated anywhere else.

In fact, there are many ways to experience Walt Disney World in inspirational and unprecedented ways. Knowing your options and how to create a luxury Walt Disney World travel itinerary is how the magic of this incredible destination truly comes to life at the highest levels.

The luxury Disney vacation means staying in a Deluxe Resort, taking part in exclusive experiences that most other guests do not, and ensuring that your overall Walt Disney World vacation is not rushed, over scheduled or over planned.
