Long lines, crowded photo opps, and “kid-friendly” (aka boooring) food options …. That’s what many people imagine when they think about a theme park vacation. Luckily, Disney makes it easy to upgrade the theme park resort experience with luxury add ons. Plus, Disney has expanded outside of the theme park resort vacation with travel options that make Disney fans and general luxury travelers alike say “wow!” Explore our favorite luxury Disney vacation options below:
Don’t Miss These Points When You Create Your Luxury Disney Vacation
Upgrade the Disney Theme Park Experience
A few extra special touches can transform an ordinary Disney World resort vacation into something truly magical.
Some of our favorite ways to create a luxury Disney World vacation include:
Opting for the fastpass:
A fastpass lets you and your family bypass the lines at some of the most popular Disney theme park attractions. Choose which rides to apply your fastpass to up to 30 days in advance (or 60 days, if you’re staying at a Disney resort).
Character dining reservations:
You’ll never forget how your daughter’s face will light up when she sips tea with Cinderella or slurps up syrup with Goofy. A character dining experience just may be the most memorable part of your trip … and a sit down meal, with Disney’s exceptional service, sure beats ordering hotdogs at a concession stand.
Disney resort perks:
You may be tempted to save a bit of money by staying at a hotel farther from the parks when you visit Orlando.
But choosing a stay at a higher end Disney resort comes with a host of perks. For example, when your family stays at a Disney resort,
- You’ll get to enjoy extended park hours. No more navigating an overcrowded park!
- You’ll also be able to enjoy complimentary transportation and parking and the ease of a Disney dining plan.
- For a Disney resort experience beyond your wildest dreams, check out Aulani. Instead of an Orlando vacation, you’ll enjoy a Hawaii trip-of-a-lifetime at this incredible family-focused resort and spa.

Adventures by Disney
There’s so much more to Disney beyond the theme parks.
For a true luxury Disney vacation, consider Adventures by Disney.
The adventure tour arm of Disney, Adventures by Disney allows you to embark on a family trip in top destinations all around the world — complete with the attention to detail and family-friendly service Disney is known for.
Ride a street car in San Francisco, zip line through the jungle in Costa Rica, sail down the Seine in Paris … and do it all with a bit of that Disney magic sprinkled in!
If you’ve done the Disney theme parks vacation before, you and your family will appreciate the fun exploration and family bonding that an Adventures by Disney experience brings.

Disney Cruise Line is one of the top cruise lines for families, with perks, amenities, and activities light years above what you’ll find on entry-level mass market cruises.
