Buena Vista Palace Hotel & Spa
The Buena Vista Palace Hotel & Spa is the cream of the crop of the Disney Springs hotels. It’s clean, contemporary, and has endless amenities. It features an extensive pool complex and Recreation Island, and it’s just steps away from Disney Springs!
Set on 27 acres, this 4-star property is the largest and most luxurious of the Disney Springs area hotels. Featuring meeting and banquet space, a business center, restaurants, a salon and spa, a fitness center, swimming pools, tennis courts, a beach volleyball court, a playground, and more. The Buena Vista Palace Hotel & Spa features bright white, aqua, and orange rooms with modern decor.
As one of the Disney Springs hotels, you can expect great amenities for an affordable price, and the location is perfect for guests who are planning to spend lots of time outside of the parks – whether it’s to enjoy Disney Springs or experience what else Orlando has to offer while still enjoying close proximity to the most magical place on earth.
The 1,014 guest rooms at the Buena Vista Palace Hotel & Spa feature one king and sleeper sofa or two queen accommodations – many rooms have balconies and fireworks views. Rooms have mini-fridges, in-room coffee, in-room safes, wi-fi, flat screen TV, and pillow top bedding.
In addition to the standard rooms, suites are available with up to 1650 square feet – some with separate living and dining areas, multiple balconies, wet bar, and microwave.
At the Buena Vista Palace Hotel & Spa, there are plenty of dining options. Enjoy a tropical meal at Avu-Avu, or dine with a lakeside view at the Watercress Café – including Sunday morning Disney Character breakfasts. Relax at The Kook Sports Bar, or the Lobby Lounge. Grab something to go from The Watercress Café Mini Market. And on Recreation Island you can visit the Shipwreck Bar and Castaway Grill! In room dining is available too!
Amenities and Activities
This family friendly resort offers scheduled poolside activities, an arcade with video games including Nintendo Wii, playground, three heated outdoor pool and a kid’s pool. Play a game of tennis, volleyball, or basketball in the on-site courts or get a workout in at the fitness center.
A car rental desk, airline boarding pass kiosk, cyber café, Disney Store, and business center are all available for your convenience.
Indulge at the 10,000 square foot Kay Casperson Lifestyle Spa & Boutique with services like massage therapy, skincare, cosmetics, waxing, hair care, manicure, pedicure, and you can even have the use of a secluded outdoor whirlpool and lap pool.
The Buena Vista Palace Hotel & Spa features free continuous shuttle service to and from the 4 Walt Disney World theme parks.
There is no complimentary airport shuttle, which can make it inconvenient and expensive to get from Orlando International to the resort. That’s one reason why Dad usually recommends having a car at Disney World.
From the Buena Vista Palace Hotel & Spa, you can walk to Disney Springs – it’s across the street, making it super convenient for snacks, meals, entertainment, and shopping!

Dad's Bottom Line
For a quick meal this is not the worst you'll get at Disney World. Disney World pizza is OK, but nothing special.
