We stayed one night on a drive between Miami and Atlanta. Everything is lovely, right down to the delicious floral scent in the hallway. Our suite was spacious, clean with very tasteful decor. We ordered dinner to the room and the service was fantastic. Overall service is wonderful: relaxed but very accommodating. The pool gets a little chaotic at times which makes for a less than relaxing experience (way too many unsupervised kids crowding the hot tub, even later at night). Breakfast was a little pricey and not as impressive as in room dining. Overall a wonderful stay. We will definitely stay here again if we're in the Orlando area.

Stayed: June 2014

Staff was excellent and you cannot beat the quiet location. Stayed in a Disney view deluxe suite. The room was great but the soft furniture was better at the Hilton next door. Our sofa showed some wear and it felt like a sofa bed. Food was excellent and we enjoyed the pool. Bed was way too high! Best shower in Orlando.

Room Tip: If you can book a suite with a balcony please do. It was awesome.

Our family (with children) stayed at the Waldorf Astoria Orlando for a repeat visit, and it was as magical as last time. Again, we stayed in a suite, which still felt brand new. We had considered staying at the adjoining Hilton this time since it has more of a kid-friendly atmosphere, but we love the WA and were very happy with our stay. We spent more time using the facilities at the WA this time since our children were not the only kids there.There were more families staying at this property and the resort was busier in general, but still not crowded. The WA seems to consistently be less busy than the Hilton. Our little one loved being strolled outside along the water and golf course for a little morning walk over to the Hilton to get Starbucks. The older children love the waterslide at the Hilton. EVeryone enjoyed the zero-depth-entry pool.

The service is wonderful everywhere you turn and the facilities are amazing. We thoroughly enjoyed the breakfast at Oscar's. With the ability to easily travel back and forth b/w the WA and Hilton, there is so much to do. We used our own transportation to Disney since we wanted to the luxury of being on our own schedule. We did buy Disney tickets at the Disney gift shop at the Hilton, which is a true Disney shop and not a Hilton shop. This is very convenient.

Being yearly travelers to WDW, we'll be back. We really can't get enough of this place.

We have stayed next door at the Hilton and while it isn't quite as elegant as the Waldorf Astoria, it was alot more fun! The WA amenities were top notch and the hotel is spotless. The pool is a small spa type affair instead of the party/lazy river affair at the connected Hilton. The prices are astronomical for food and drink. We are foodies and at the Bull and Bear and don't mind paying for quality but for the WA to triple the price of an ordinary cocktail is just silly. The lobbies are so quiet you could hear a pin drop. In summary, we didn't find there to be any fun "energy" at this hotel.

Of course there is nothing ever to say bad about staying at a Waldorf Astoria. I would like to thank specifically a few people. First and foremost Adam Free is truly the best Front Desk Manager in the business. Thank you Adam. Ryan was at the door, bell desk, Ticket Desk, and overall I think he has clones working there. He made my drink at 2am, Parked my car, and cleaned the pool the next morning. (JUST KIDDING) It always seemed he was there everytime I went by. Then of course the staff checking us in and out and everyone out front from Christopher to Orlando (the man not the city) was great too. Thank you Waldorf for making our stay there awesome and putting safety and care back into the Hilton Honors Name for us again. No matter where you stay you should always be treated like your at the Waldorf or am I asking for to much.

Room Tip: Disney View is the best

this is my 3rd stay at WA Orlando. The first was 5*, 2nd had a few hiccups mostly in the housekeeping area, and this time they are back to their glory! The rooms are luxurious, bathrooms spacious and well lit, nice walk in shower separate tub, plenty of space with the sofa and desk setup. The service here is top notch, the hotel is quiet and gives my kids a place to unwind after Disney (as opposed to staying at a Disney hotel, which keeps them all riled up 24/7!). We had room service twice and all the food was amazing..and I mean truly amazing. Filet mignon perfectly cooked, vegetables perfectly cooked, soups hot and very tasty, bread basket was awesome, pasta bolognese one of the best I have had. Who would think room service could be this good? maybe I was just craving good food after 4 days on a Disney property with their awful food (we moved to Waldorf for the last 2 nights of our trip), but I really was impressed. Breakfast buffet was excellent too. Housekeeping was perfect and turndown service with slippers and chocolates is always appreciated. Nespresso machine in room. oh...I could go on, but to sum it up: this is a luxury property that is conveniently located to Disney, with a very nice pool area (and privileges to the hilton pool with slide and lazy river right next door, they will drive you over and back in a golf cart), free bus to disney or just take a cab (I think it was less than $20 each way). This is the best value around the Disney area if you ask me. I've stayed at 4 different properties on and off Disney and this is by far and away the best.

Room Tip: they are all good...no need to spend extra on a suite. we have stayed in both the regular room and...

Great stay form the first time you pull up to resort until you check out... Staff is very friendly. Rooms were What one expects from a WA property. We normaly stay at Disney resorts with monorail access fro convininece . After staying at the WA Orlando at half the price with accommodations and service that is 100% better than Disney. I have no problem spending an extra 7-10 minutes to get to & from the room to park entrance.
