Why We Like It

Holiday Inn Resort Orlando – Lake Buena Vista is a well-located, moderately priced hotel that offers terrific value. This hotel became a MouseSavers Preferred Hotel shortly after opening in 2012 because we were — and continue to be — super impressed with the amenities, extra large rooms, huge swimming pool, attractive lobby and family-friendly atmosphere. Holiday Inn Resort is run by a top management team that we’ve known for a long time, and it shows. If you’re looking for exceptional value for a family, this is your place.

Located off Disney property, but only one mile from the east entrance of Walt Disney World Resort (about 2 miles driving distance from Disney Springs), Holiday Inn Resort features 496 oversized standard rooms including 59 KidSuites. The hotel offers an attractive, large, courtyard-style pool area, an on-site Applebee’s full-service restaurant with a Kids Eat FREE program, and complimentary daily scheduled transportation to Walt Disney World, Disney Springs, SeaWorld and Universal’s main entrance is included in the daily service fee. The hotel also offers a Pets Welcome program with pet-friendly accommodations.

Note: Through mid-April 2024 improvements are being made to this property which will have minimal impact on guest stays. Some areas of the pool deck may be temporarily closed for safety however the pool will remain open.

Room Occupancy: Up to 4 in double queen room, 5 with roll-away bed

Park Transportation: Complimentary daily scheduled transportation is available for Walt Disney World, Disney Springs, SeaWorld and Universal Orlando.

Rooms

The extra-spacious standard rooms have two queen beds or one king bed. Queen rooms sleep up to 4 people in two queen beds (5 people with an added roll-away bed, available for $15/night). King rooms have a pull-out sofa and sleep up to 4. The upscale plush bedding is in warm and cheerful colors, and beds offer pillow choices of soft or firm — a feature not found in most hotels. The contemporary-designed rooms all feature granite and marble bathrooms. Some pool view rooms include furnished balconies.

There are also KidSuites: special, kid-friendly mini-suites designed to give adults and children a little privacy. For those on a tight budget, KidSuites offer a separate area for the kids for about the price of a moderately-priced standard room elsewhere. KidSuites have all the amenities of a standard room, with a king-size bed and a partitioned-off area that includes its own television and one or two sets of bunk beds with twin-size mattresses. Some KidSuites have two bunk beds that will sleep up to 4 (up to 6 people total per room) and some KidSuites have one bunk bed sleeping up to 2, for a maximum of 4 people per room.
