Is a “Deluxe” Tower Suite at CSR the same as the “Executive” Suite? When I click on the Deluxe Suite photos, it brings up “Executive” Suite photos. Are these one and the same? I am primarily interested in whether there is a separate bedroom? Also, if it says “Tower”, that means Gran Destino Tower (newer rooms), right?
Here is the room layout for the Executive Suite:
Here is a walkthrough of this category of rooms:
And here is a walkthrough of the GDT deluxe suite:
Thanks so much! I went on the WDW website under the PH offer for my dates of 5/8 - 5/15. The Tower - Deluxe Suite - Club Access came up. When you click on “View Photos” it is labeled “Executive Suite”, so I was confused. It looks really nice in the video!
Have you stayed here? Did you like it? We usually stay in a 1 BR villa with a kitchen and a washer/dryer. But with club access, I could live without a kitchen. Do you know if there are laundry facilities in the Tower? (I can probably find that out.) I am also concerned about having only bus transportation, but with the money we would save, I could use Lyft everywhere, if need be. Would you say this is as nice as a 1 BR Villa?
I’ve stayed at GDT and LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVED it, but it was a regular hotel room.
The entire tower is a work of art, for starters.
It feels plush and elegant and very much deluxe
I love the view across the water - at night you can just barely see Contemporary and the Castle (you can see them glowing, more than anything). When I stayed fireworks had not yet returned but you’d totally be able to see them off in the distance from a water view room in the tower.
I love the Barcelona Lounge and the Dahlia Lounge! I went to Sangria University at Three Bridges which was absolutely wonderful! I have not had the good fortune to dine at Toledo as it was not yet reopened when I stayed there.
I first set foot in the tower just for a look-see in January 2020 before the world stopped turning. And I fell instantly in love.
There is a laundry room but I am shocked to say I didn’t go looking for it.
The only drawback here is that you’re bound to buses unless you have your own vehicle or are willing to take uber/lyft. It was not a problem for me at all. But if proximity to a park is important this would not be the resort for you. If they can somehow connect this to Skyliner one day it will be Game Over.
I have stayed in the deluxe room (it was a surprise upgarde) and we LOVED it. I am a big fan of the Gran Destino Tower in general and club level deluxe room was one of my favorite I’ve ever had at Disney.
From watching both of the videos, I think the room that is available under the PH offer is the Deluxe one in the tower, and the “Executive Suite” label on the room photos is a misnomer?
Honestly not sure. They are clearly very different rooms and the Executive Suite is listed in a lot of blog posts and such as available in the casitas whereas the Deluxe Suite is available in the GDT.
Probably Disney being lazy?
Do you happen to know if there are laundry facilities in the Tower? When I look on the WDW website, it looks like there are none actually in the Tower, which is surprising. (Or maybe I am weird .)
I just saw it somewhere recently.
Give me some time and I’ll find it for you.
Well wouldja look at that:
It’s not the place I was thinking I saw it, but this is better since it came from here
Thanks so much!
Did you find the bus service to be really poor?
I actually found the bus service to be rather good.
In the mornings for rope drop the tower had its own bus. Not sure if that was an anomaly I stumbled on both mornings but it was my experience nonetheless. The ride back through the resort on return was not bad at all either.
I agree, never had an issue with bus service
