Did the $99 fall special (mid-week) and got the Disney view balcony room as requested. Service was top notch all the way. The food/drinks were better than expected. Nice to have an adult type hotel to stay at. We only stayed 2 nights and wish we had remained there for the next 3 (after going on a disapointing cruise). I... More

Loved the Buena Vista Palace. The only complaint I have is with the bus shuttle to the Disney Parks. Was told by the AAA agent that it would drop us off at the entrance of each attraction, which wasn't so! This was a problem for us due to my grandson having cerebral palsy and having difficulty walking, along with myself... More

We stayed here for a conference for my husband during Columbus Day weekend. I loved the fact it was directly across the street from Downtown Disney. There were many conferences this weekend, but the pool and other public areas were very quiet. There is a trick to turning off the alarm, it took us two days to figure it out.... More

I was the meeting planner for a 1 1/2 day conference and the Buena Vista Palace Hotel was a really good venue. On Disney property with all the resort amenities, it was a great draw and helped improve our attendance. Rooms are comfortable, on-site restaurants are very good, staff is excellent, meeting space was great for our group, so we... More

Stayed over the Thanksgiving weekend. I thought the room was modern and clean. A decent sized room for 2 people. I would stay here again.

Headed out for a week of Disneyworld fun and traveling companions did not want to stay on Disney property so that they could escape when needed. Overall the property is nice. Contemporary design that can sometimes feel a bit sparse, but comfortable. Hotel amenities were fine, as was their morning buffet. Though the hotel is so oddly configured in the... More

This was my second week-long stay at the BVP. This is a beautiful hotel especially after the renovation. I love the fact that this hotel is right across the street from Downtown Disney (gotta check out the Raglan Road Irish Pub and Fuego Cigar Bar!!) The complimentary shuttle service was great. Always on time and not so jammed with people... More

Wow. What a makeover and improved property. Been to the Buena Vista Palace off and on over the last 10+ years. Whatever it is they've done, they should sure keep doing it. Updated, spotless, impressive rooms. Great towels! Friendly, helpful staff -- everywhere. Most tasty and well presented conference meeting food. Delightful, friendly lobby bar. Wonderful dinner (and wine) at... More

The decor, services and amenities reinforces its distinction as a luxury hotel. Staff were professional and very helpful. I commend the hotel on is its dedication of being a "green" hotel. Numerous recycle bins are located around the hotel for guest to continue living “green” when away from home. Overall, my stay at BVP was excellent and I would definitely... More

Staff in this hotel are very professional and courteous. From top to bottom every Hotel staff greets you with a smile, remakable. I enjoyed having breakfast at Water Cress cafe every morning. Short distance away from Downtown Disney and excellent transportation to all Disney Parks. Loved the hotel will surely stay here again.
