Luxury hotels in Orlando, Florida can be categorized, as can much of the city’s life, into Disney and non-Disney.

Several hotels at Disney World, one of the world’s top tourist attractions, fall into the luxury accommodations category.

Two original Disney World luxury hotels are located in the Magic Kingdom area. The Polynesian Village consists of multiple low buildings in a tropical setting, while the resort’s monorail passes through the high rise Contemporary Hotel. In the same area, the Grand Floridian Resort sits on the shores of a lagoon and the Wilderness Lodge has the feel of national park lodges.

The Epcot area is home to the Beach Club and the Yacht Club Resorts, which echo New England, and the Board Walk Inn, reminiscent of 1940’s Atlantic City.

The African-themed Animal Kingdom Lodge is nestled in a 43 acre wildlife preserve. The
sister World Dolphin and World Swan Resorts sit opposite each other across a lake in the Hollywood Studios section of Disney World.

Non-Disney luxury hotels in Orlando include the Grand Bohemian in the Arts District, in the center of downtown. While the Grand Bohemian does not offer accessibility features, the Peabody, located within the Orange County Convention Center complex, does.

Five miles from the Convention Center, the Villas of Grand Cypress features a 45-hole golf course designed by Jack Nicklaus. The Ritz Carlton sits on 500 acres of gardens and is equidistant between Disney World and Orlando Airport.

Located on the Universal Studios property is the Universal Loews Portofino Bay Hotel, designed as an Italian fishing village.

The newest luxury hotel in Orlando is the Waldorf Astoria, the first in a new chain from the New York flagship. It sits on 482 acres close to Disney World.
