One of the most important aspects of making sure that your vacation is magical is choosing where you will stay. Your memories will be made both at the parks and restaurants that you visit as a family, but also at the hotel where you wind down at the end of each day. Staying at a Disney Good Neighbor Hotel can help take the guesswork out of planning your next Orlando resort vacation. Two of our favorite area Good Neighbor Hotels are the Crowne Plaza Hotel Orlando Lake Buena Vista and the Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott Orlando Lake Buena Vista. Here is an overview of why these hotels should make your shortlist when planning your next Disney vacation.
Let’s start by diving into the Disney Good Neighbor Hotel designation. Disney Good Neighbor Hotels are held to strict standards to become affiliated with the Disney brand. Similar to the on-property Disney resort hotels, these facilities must adhere to a high bar of service, cleanliness, and convenience. Good Neighbors are all close to the Walt Disney World Resort (between two and fourteen miles away) and offer direct transportation to the theme parks. Good Neighbors also help facilitate entrance into the parks by offering ticket sales and park planning on-site in the lobby or through Guest Services.
The Crowne Plaza Hotel Orlando Lake Buena Vista is a great example of a Good Neighbor Hotel. This hotel is walkable to shopping, dining, and entertainment options at Disney Springs, and is a quick ride to all the Disney theme parks as well as SeaWorld, Discovery Cove, and Aquatica. You’ll get a great bang for your buck here with affordable daily rates as well as extra perks like free parking and free Wi-Fi. And, as specified above, a shuttle (also free!) is provided for roundtrip transportation to the Disney parks. Here, you’ll also enjoy a fitness center, business center, and meeting space. Full-service dining is available at the on-site restaurant, H Street Grille, and room service is also offered. Kids and adults alike will appreciate the resort-style pool with a waterslide, and pets are welcome!
Another great area option is the Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott Orlando Lake Buena Vista. Located on S. Apopka Vineland Road, close to the Orlando Premium Outlets, this hotel is just one mile from all the fun at Disney Springs. Your dollar will go further here with freebies like in-room Wi-Fi, parking, a shuttle to the parks, plus a daily, hot, buffet-style breakfast. As with all Good Neighbor Hotels, assistance with planning your Disney park visit can be found in the lobby and you can purchase your tickets here before hopping on the shuttle to the parks. Other great amenities include a fitness center, business center, and outdoor pool. Each well-appointed room features double vanities, a mini-refrigerator, and a microwave.
Whichever Good Neighbor Hotel you select, you’re sure to find its affiliation with the Disney parks adds to the ease and convenience of your stay.
