Wyndham Lake Buena Vista is inside Walt Disney World property and they are an official Disney World hotel. And it is the closest hotel to Disney Springs.
Wyndham Lake Buena Vista
I have stayed at Wyndham Lake Buena Vista many times now and I always enjoy staying here. There are many reasons that keep us coming back, including the location, dining options, spacious rooms, and views of the fireworks.
There are definite perks that come along with staying at an official Disney World hotel like Wyndham Lake Buena Vista. Here are my favorite benefits.
Free Shuttle – They have a shuttle that will take you to all the main parks including the water parks.
Pin Trading – Some of their employees participate in pin trading and there is a pin trading board with tons of pins!
They are located inside Disney World property lines and the closest hotel to Disney Springs. You can be in Disney Springs within a 5 to 10 minute walk depending on how fast you walk. If you haven’t seen Disney Springs since they redid it you are missing out. There are way more stores to shop at and lots of new restaurants.
Multiple Dining Options
Lake View Restaurant – This restaurant offers an affordable character breakfast buffet with characters like Pluto and Goofy three times a week on Tuesday, Thursday & Saturday at 7:30am – 10:30am. the cost of the character buffer is $26.95 per adult and $17.95 per child. This is one of the cheapest character meals at Disney World. On the days they are not having the character breakfast you can get buffet for less or order al la carte.
Room Service – Room service is available from 7:30 AM until 11 PM every day. They offer breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
Eclispe Lounge – This is a small cocktail bar area that children are allowed at in the lobby. They have hamburgers and sandwiches.
Oasis Bar and Grill – This restaurant is out by the pool. I can vouch for their chicken and beef sliders as well as their pina coladas!
Family Friendly Amenities
Swimming – They have a nice large pool with a kids water playground. The pool bar offers food and drinks. I recommend the beef or chicken sliders. If you like you can rent a cabana for the day. There is another swimming pool and a hot tub as well.
Volleyball – There is a sand volleyball court near the main pool.
Fitness center – The fitness center is open 24 hours a day. This is great for guests with jet lag.
Play area – There is an adorable play area for little ones to play in.
Our room always has plenty of room and it is always quiet. I highly appreciate not hearing other people through the walls! I have had the same layout each time. Two beds, desk, dresser, and bathroom. The rooms have clever storage space. The most recent time I stayed, our room had a view of the fireworks. Please note that all of these photos are from Wyndham Lake Buena Vista and not their sister property Wyndham Garden Lake Buena Vista. (If you are looking for an even more affordable place to stay check out the Garden property, it shares all these amenties.)
Every room has a mini fridge and a coffee maker inside this long cabinet.
The desk has regular plugs and usb ports.
Here is a quick tour of the room we stayed in. They do have extra large suites available as well, but I didn’t get any video of them.
