Two clean not to cold pools which were open weather permitting until 10 pm at night. Supermarket on site, a bit expensive but Walmart five minutes away. We... More

We stayed here on our family five night vacation stay to Disney. We bought a great deal through Groupon which included all resort fees, parking, and WiFi. The hotel was very close to the Disney parks and very convenient use of their shuttle buses which ran every 30 minutes. The room was very clean with a descent amount of space... More

Resort hotel, lots and lots of space both in the public areas and in the rooms. We were very kindly upgraded to a two bedroom suite and I have never had so much space. From one end of our apartment to the other must have been 70' although I think most hotels here are similar given the land prices. Two... More

First let me say I am NOT an employee of this hotel, nor have I any affiliation with it or any of the staff there and after staying in this hotel for 8 nights, I am at a complete loss to understand why it got so many bad comments? My teen son and I stayed here recently and its a... More

Great resort, best value, and very convenient comparing to the surrounded Downtown Disney properties! Complimentary shuttles to all the parks and free parking, what could be better? It's right across from Downtown Disney so no need to drive there, just walk over:)

Free shuttle bus to all disney parks starting from 8am every 30mins and leaving disney late so you can return when you want. Really liked that you could order pizza for a quick, reasonably priced meal. Good overall facilities although we didn't really use them as spent most of the time in the parks. Laundry was useful. Concierge was helpful.... More

Buena Vista Palace is one of the original "Grand" hotels that were built up around Disney. It's across the street from Downtown Disney and provides easy shuttle to all of the parks. We've stayed here numerous times and the staff, the facility and the location continue to impress.

We booked one night through hotels.com for our pre-Disney hotel. Once my husband & I got an idea of when we would be in the Orlando area, we decided to book a second night as well. I ended up calling to book the room to make sure that we were able to stay in the same room both nights. The... More

Stayed here for 2 nights in October 2014. Loved this hotel, it was perfect location for Disney, less than a 10 minute walk. The hotel was able to provide us with information on how to get shuttle buses down to Universal Studios too. I am already planning my return visit!

Very close to Disney-World. Free Shuttle starts from the hotel each 30 min. Takes 10 min to arrive at Disneyland. Hotel include a "breakfast shop" for a decent 4 person breakfast at $25. Fast and friendly check-in and out.
