Best Western Lake Buena Vista in the WALT DISNEY WORLD® Resort (also known as Lake Buena Vista Resort Hotel in the Disney Springs Resort area) is one of the seven Disney Springs resort area hotels that are located on Disney World property, but not owned or operated by Disney. This 18-story high-rise hotel is one of the tallest buildings in Disney Springs, providing terrific views of the Disney fireworks or the Lake Buena Vista area from the upper floors. Of the MouseSavers Preferred Hotels this hotel frequently has some of the best nightly rates you’ll find in Disney Springs, and offers excellent value for the price.
As a guest of this Disney Springs® Resort Area Hotel, you can enjoy Extra Magic Hours from January 1 – December 31, 2018 with valid theme park admission and an Extra Magic Hours benefit voucher.* With the Extra Magic Hours benefit, each day one of the theme parks opens earlier or stays open longer, exclusively for guests of the official Disney resorts and Disney Springs Area resorts. With Extra Magic Hours, you can enjoy select attractions with smaller crowds! To see when Extra Magic Hours are offered for each Disney Theme Park, you can view the Extra Magic Hours calendar at disneyworld.com/parkhours, or check the Walt Disney World® Resort Times Guide available in the lobby.
Of the Disney Springs resort area hotels, it is closest to the Crossroads shopping center, which makes it convenient for picking up a few groceries or for dining at several reasonably-priced restaurants.
If you are looking for a moderately priced full-service hotel close to the theme parks, the Best Western is an excellent choice.
Standard rooms accommodate up to four people, but rollaway beds are available for $10 plus tax per night, and many rooms are large enough that you could add a fifth person on a rollaway without being too terribly cramped. Almost all rooms have balconies big enough to accommodate two chairs, and many have extremely nice views of the Disney Springs resort area.
The Best Western’s standard deluxe rooms are spacious at 325 square feet and offer two queen beds. There are also preferred rooms, which are even larger (about 345 sq. ft.) and include a larger balcony. The preferred rooms have either a king bed and a sofa bed, or two queen-size beds. Rooms feature pillow top mattresses, brand new (as of 2012) 37″ LCD flat screen televisions and alarm clock radios with MP3 connection.
All rooms include a safe, hairdryer, iron and ironing board, coffeemaker, mini-fridge, and voicemail and dataport on the phone. Bathroom amenities are by eco fresh. High-speed Internet access is available in all rooms and in public areas (included in resort fee). Local calls under 30 minutes are FREE.
There are several food and beverage options at Best Western in the WALT DISNEY WORLD® Resort. Traders Island Grill serves a very extensive breakfast buffet and full-service dinner. Market Place Café offers deli-style breakfast, lunch, dinner or snacks, sandwiches, pizza and beverages to take out, and is open all day. Flamingo Cove, the lobby lounge, is open in the afternoons and evenings. In addition, there is room service with extended hours.
This hotel also has a Kids Eat FREE breakfast program where children age 10 and under can enjoy a complimentary breakfast meal off of the children’s menu at Traders Island Grill when accompanied by a paying adult. You’ll receive one free kids meal with each paying adult.
The hotel has a refreshing pool and a small kiddie pool, but no hot tub/spa. There is minimal shade around the pool, so bring sunscreen. There is a small video game room and a fitness center. The lobby is home to a gift shop and a small convenience store. Guests can use a coin laundry facility and a dry cleaning service is available.
Best Western Lake Buena Vista is one of the Disney Springs resort area hotels that operate their own bus system to the theme parks. The buses run all day (from before park opening until after park closing) about every half-hour, and are much better than the transportation offered by most non-Disney resorts around Walt Disney World. (In fact, the buses are more comfortable than Disney’s own buses!) However, be aware that the drop-off point is slightly further from the theme park gates than the Disney resort bus drop-off, so there’s a little extra walking.
Self-parking is available for $8/night (nightly self-parking is FREE for MouseSavers guests). Valet parking is available for $12.
The Best Western offers very reasonable rates for such quality accommodations, making it an excellent alternative to the Disney Value resorts.
