“Downtown Disney Delight!”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

The Buena Vista Palace was recommended to me by two co-workers only after I booked another close by hotel which they steered me away from. I wound up cancelling the other reservation ($25 penalty) in favor of BVP. BVP was offering a very reasonable Florida Resident discount during our recent stay (February), as wasDisney. The room was spacious, clean and updated. We asked for and received a room on a high floor. The view of Downtown Disney at night and during sunrise was beautiful; however, I was a bit disappointed that I was told I would be able to see the 8pm Disney fireworks and the 9pm Epcot fireworks but could not...unless I hung off the small balcony (which turkey vultures like to frequent) and torked my body to the very right side of the tower.

We did venture downstairs to the Kook Sports Bar one night. The service and drinks were fine but the venue seemed outdated. We did receive a 20% discount to the onsite hotel restaurant Avu Avu(?) but the appearance was dark, dingy and also outdated; therefore, we opted to eat dinner elsewhere. The onsite hotel breakfast restaurant had great banana pancakes!

We enjoyed free transportation to the parks, although we had to wait an extended period of time when being picked up after a long day in the park. Very easy walk to Downtown Disney where we took in the Cirque du Soleil show (fabulous and worth the $) and good eats and live entertainment at Bongos Cuban Cafe. One night we took a Taxi to International Drive and ate at the newer Fogo de Chao Brazilian Steakhouse. Although pricey, highly recommended!

Overall a great stay and will return to and recommend the Buena Vista Palace!

Room Tip: *Ask for a high room in the main tower with a Downtown Disney/Fireworks view!

Came to Orlando to take in the Hilton Grand Vacation Club sales pith and elected to stay here for a couple of nights. Well, HGVC customers are second class citizens at this Palace. Do not take room 536!!!! Or any room on the fifth floor. Hotel is not bad with the pool areas being spacious and comfortable. Our room was nicely decorated and comfortable. The room and bathroom were dusty with dirty soap dishes the norm. Not a big fan of other people's soap scum there for the touch!! Recent renovations have been done, but touch up work, such as painting the trim, was shoddy at best. TV and plumbing all worked okay. Will try somewhere else on our return trip

Rooms are old, dirty. This place really needs a renovation. Close to downtown Disney but still. Carpet is gross throughout the entire hotel. Bathrooms are terrible. Please fix this hotel used to be great. I can't believe Disney allows current state

The hotel was very clean and comfortable. The rooms were a good size - the vanity area was a bit small but nicely decorated. The rooms were tended to professionally by the staff.
A visit to the spa proved to be worth the trip. The staff was wonderful and very accommodating. Although I just had a simple shampoo and style, they made me feel a valued client. Take a minute to check out the shop in the spa. The pool and grounds were clean and well maintained.
The hotel is a quick walk to Downtown Disney and of course the Disney shuttle picks up right at the hotel. The location couldn't really be better.

Room Tip: rooms facing the lake are quiet

The title says it all. If you want to pay a lot of money and get a filthy room, then this is the place for you. My wife and I even lifted up the matress to check for bet bugs because the room was so dirty. Yes, the room was made up but not clean. Hair on the bed, floors and tables. Urine on the toilet, filthy soap dish...
Not to mention the "tired" worn out carpet(complete with holes), heavily stained couch and chairs, scuffed up furniture, cracked mirrors and shower door that leaked so bad water ran out of the bathroom and flooded the hall and carpet! I can go on. Are you getting the picture? Go somewhere else. I had a group discounted rate of $165 plus all the taxes per night. Please "like" this if you found this helpful. Thank you and happy travels. :-)

This is huge property located about 2 blocks from Downtown Disney, not Disney World. It is a good value till you add $20.00 resort fee and valet parking, if you chose to do so, which is about $20.00/day .. Breakfast Sunday was a buffet brunch, $24.00/adults, about $12.00 for kids. So in this case breakfast alone for 2 adults and 2 kids about $80.00-.Ouch There is a convenience center. I had a cup of coffee and a stale apple danish $6.50. Sports Bar and restaurant on the 1st floor. You have options like Downtown Disney for food or the Market Place about 1 1/2 miles with plenty of options fro food. Nice pool area. Sleep factor very good and in the tower I was in each room had a nice kind of private balcony over looking the lake. The property is nice just getting a little weather worn but convenient to Downtown Disney where you can catch the buses to Disney World.

Room Tip: No idea-I stayed in the main tower lake view ROH
