Disney Springs hotels offer some great amenities, and the location is perfect for couples and families who plan to spend a good deal of time outside of the parks, enjoying all the dining, shopping, and entertainment options that Disney Springs has to offer.
The Disney Springs area has the greatest concentration of hotels on Walt Disney World Property. In addition to several Disney resort hotels, this is where you’ll find some of the only non-Disney hotels inside the Walt Disney World gates (the others are the Swan and Dolphin Hotels in the EPCOT area).

Disney Springs Hotels – Disney Resorts
With two Disney Vacation Club properties, a top-notch spa, some of the most unique rooms at Walt Disney World, and a moderate resort so big it’s practically two experiences in one, you can’t go wrong with choosing a Disney-owned Disney Springs hotel.
Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort and Spa
Disney Saratoga Springs is a luxury resort and spa and part of the Disney Vacation Club. As the name implies, this resort is themed after the Saratoga Springs, NY racing and spa retreat popular in the late 1800s.
Designed to have a relaxing atmosphere in scenic settings, it offers comfortable accommodations for families of all sizes amidst green hills, delightful fountains, on the Sassagoula River.
As an added bonus, this property features the Treehouse Villas – some of the neatest rooms at Walt Disney World!
Disney’s Old Key West Resort
Disney’s Old Key West Resort transports you down to the Florida Keys. From Conch Flats to the Turtle Snack Shack, everything at this sleepy resort screams slow down and enjoy yourself.
The original Disney Vacation Club Resort, it features the largest rooms at Walt Disney World by far. If you’re a fan of hitting the links, you can head next door to the Lake Buena Vista Golf Course and tee off!
Disney’s Port Orleans Resort
The Disney Port Orleans Resort is actually 2 resorts in one.
For years, the Port Orleans and the Dixie Landings were separate hotels with very similar themes. In 2001, in an economizing move, Disney combined the two resorts into one mega-resort. Each section has it’s unique theme, but the two resorts now share some amenities like dining and some of the water sports.
This resort connects to Disney Springs via ferry boat along the Sassagoula River.

Disney Springs Hotels – non-Disney
These non-Disney hotels can’t be beat for location – they’re as close as right at the entrance to the Walt Disney World Resort, and most offer a lot of bang for your buck. You won’t find all the same amenities at these hotels that you’ll get at the official Walt Disney World Resort Hotels. They do have perks such as shuttles to the parks, a Disney gift shop and concierge service where you can book just about anything at Disney World.
