Hotels near WDW

Hi there,

We are a family of five with three kids age 7,5 and 3. We will be in Orlando in early August. Need some advice on where to stay for two days before we check into the Contemporary.

We would ideally like a place near WDW as we are planning to check in early on our first day there.

Price range? Why not another Disney hotel and let them make the transfer for you?

You could look at the Disney's Art of Animation Resort or Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside.



That gives you several advantages like free transportation from MCO to the hotels and you don't need to worry about moving hotels, Disney will move you and you can go enjoy a day in the park.

Just check out of the first Disney hotel, tell the bell desk you are moving to the Contemporary and then at the end of your day in the parks, you go to the new hotel (Contemp) and your bags are there and now you check in.

why dont you consider some hotels in the lake buena vista area - they are very close in proximity to disney and most of these hotels offer free transporation to and from the parks. You could also try the celebration area which is also near.

you can stay in the LBV area, most of those hotels offer free shuttles to the parks. There are some Disney hotels that arent wallet breakers and there is free transport all over the resort.

My daughter and I always stay at Clarion LBV, right outside Downtown Disney. It's cheap, clean and safe(we have arrived after midnight and felt very safe). It's a standard room so you might have to squeeze but a great place when you are just there to shower and sleep. And we can take the back road to Universal!

We stay at hyatt regency grand cypress in lake buena vista, This place is beautiful specially the grounds they have plenty for kids, rock climbing, boats,bikes, arcades, water slide, massive pool with caves and waterfalls. 5 min drive to downtown 10 to 15 mins to parks.12 mins away from contemporary.
