The Buena Vista Palace Resort and Spa puts you right in the heart of the Downtown Disney area, literally across the street from all the shops, restaurants, and entertainment that Downtown Disney has to offer.
Even though the Buena Vista Palace Resort and Spa with a 1,014 rooms is right on Disney property, you’ll be amazed at the reasonable cost, especially when you consider the amenities. They include three outdoor pools, hot tub spa, children’s swimming pool and playground, tennis and volleyball courts, in-room refrigerators, pillow-top mattresses, in-room WIFI, and furnished balconies in most rooms. There’s a shuttle every 30 minutes to the Disney theme parks, and you’re literally minutes from both SeaWorld Orlando and Universal Orlando Resort via either I-4 or the low-traffic back road routes.
Sure, most families focus on the theme parks when they stay at the Buena Vista Palace Resort and Spa, but as the name implies, it’s also the place for relaxing massages and other pampering treatments. There’s enough to do at the resort to keep the kids busy while the adults enjoy an afternoon of spa treatments. There are also plenty of restaurants just outside of Disney property for family dining.
All the guests at the Beuna Vista Palace love it, here is one guest comments “There is a lot to do at the resort, so much that we stayed longer than planned. Our original plan was to stay three nights, then head over to Daytona…however my son had so much fun on Recreation Island that he didn’t want to leave so we stayed in Orlando for the entire vacation.” Another traveler pointed out that you can still enjoy recreation, even if you return late from the theme parks, saying, “Enjoyed late night at the pool which is open 24 hours along with the Jacuzzi.” Even if you’re at the resort at night, you can still get a little taste of the Disney magic. One guest explains that “What’s amazing is that you can see the fireworks around 9 pm from Disney theme park Magic Kingdom on the top floor.”
Please note, the Buena Vista Palace and Spa does charge a $10 per night resort fee. The guests are asked to pay this upon checkin.
