In selecting MouseSavers Preferred Hotels, our goal is to to be your hotel “concierge” by doing all of the footwork for you and picking the best of the best in various Orlando hotel categories. We have been investigating Walt Disney World area hotels, including hotels in Lake Buena Vista, Orlando and Kissimmee, since summer 2001.
First we reviewed many sources (including unofficial Disney discussion boards and published guidebooks) to see which hotels near Disney World got a lot of positive reviews. Then we started visiting Orlando hotels in person.
We have looked at dozens of hotels that are close to Walt Disney World and done in-depth site inspections of most of them. We have also performed site inspections at all of Disney’s official resorts, the “gold standard” by which other hotels in the area must be judged. That allows us to give you an accurate comparison of quality.
We have used the following criteria in determining whether a hotel qualifies for MouseSavers Preferred Hotels status:
- It has to be a good value for the money.
- It has to be distinctive in some way that enhances your enjoyment of a Walt Disney World vacation (that means no cookie-cutter hotels that could be located anywhere).
- It has to be a place we would stay personally — in fact, we’ve stayed at all of our MouseSavers Preferred Hotels, usually multiple times.
- It has to be very close to Walt Disney World. Several of the Preferred Hotels are actually located on Disney property (but not operated by Disney), while the rest are within a very short drive.
After touring many hotels we chose a select few that met all our criteria and stood out above the rest. Once we had identified those hotels, we approached the management about offering special discounts, deals and packages on their Disney World area hotel locations for readers of MouseSavers.com. The MouseSavers Preferred Hotels are supposed to offer our readers at least their lowest refundable/changeable rate (also known as the “Best Available Rate” in the hospitality industry). But in the vast majority of cases, they go far beyond that basic requirement, offering MouseSavers.com readers exclusive deals that are not available anywhere else.
We have turned down many offers from hotels that were willing to pay us to recommend them, but didn’t meet our standards. We re-inspect the MouseSavers Preferred Hotels regularly, usually once or twice a year. If they don’t continue to meet our standards, we stop working with them.
We are not currently recommending any specific Orlando hotel discounts in the super-low-budget category because we feel there is a good chance our readers will be disappointed by what they get for their money. A couple of our Preferred Hotels have offered rates as low as $69 a night plus tax, which is an amazing deal for the quality you are getting.
So far we have found that hotels charging much below that price level are hugely less appealing — for a little less money, you get a lot fewer amenities. If you just want basic, cheap accommodation, there are lots of choices in Kissimmee (one town over from Orlando/Lake Buena Vista) in the $49 – $79 a night range, for which you can expect about a “2-star” hotel with a fairly clean room, no restaurant or room service, an ordinary pool, basic decor and landscaping, very limited or no transportation to the parks, and usually a fairly inconvenient location.
- If you don’t want to try Priceline, see the Other Hotels Near Disney World page.
- Another alternative: try to get a discounted room at one of Disney’s Value resorts (the All Stars or Pop Century), which have a rack rate of under $100 per room per night in the off-season. With a discount from AAA, you might be able to get an even lower rate, and if there are discount codes running during the time of your visit, or you are an Annual Passholder or Florida resident, these rooms are sometimes as low as $80-ish a night in the off-season. You get a lot of “magic” at Disney’s Value resorts, as well as the convenience of Disney’s transportation system. See our list of current discounts at the Disney resorts.
