MDT Tip: Though the Disney Vacation Club Resorts are typically the most expensive, you can actually get them for drastically lower prices on the resale/rental market. Check out this Disney Vacation Club page on the MDT recommended website SellMyTimeshareNow.com. The Disney Vacation Club timeshare suites priced on this site are among the lowest on the web.
On the pages that this page links to Military Disney Tips gives a brief overview of the resort and our thoughts about them if we've stayed there (we are working on getting to the rest).
A very in depth review falls outside the scope and workload of MDT, but we have linked to much more detailed information from several of our partners on each resort page.
