The Benefits of Staying at a Disney Springs Hotel

by | Jun 8, 2023 | Disney Springs, Walt Disney World Resorts, WDW Blog

We’re sharing everything you need to know about the Disney Springs hotels, including the benefits of staying there!

Disney Springs is the shopping and dining complex in the heart of Walt Disney World Resort. From incredible dining experiences like Homecomin’ and the Boathouse to premier shopping at spots like Lululemon or World of Disney, there are endless possibilities during a trip to Disney Springs. 

But did you know there are also a collection of off-site hotels across the street from Disney Springs? If you’re looking to stay in a hotel mere steps away from Walt Disney World Resort without the Disney World hotel pricing, you need to know more about the Disney Springs area hotels.

What are the Disney Springs Resort Hotels? 

There are seven Disney Springs Resort Hotels that guests can choose from on Hotel Plaza Boulevard. These resorts include: 

  • B Resort & Spa- Disney Springs Area
  • DoubleTree Suites by Hilton Orlando- Disney Springs Area
  • Drury Plaza Hotel Orlando- Disney Springs Area
  • Hilton Orlando Buena Vista Palace- Disney Springs Area
  • Hilton Orlando Lake Buena Vista- Disney Springs Area
  • Holiday Inn Orlando- Disney Springs Area
  • Wyndham Garden Lake Buena Vista Disney Springs Area

These resorts offer the best of both worlds: a Disney World vacation at a reasonable and affordable price. Let’s discover the benefits of staying in Disney Springs.

The Benefits

Shuttle Service

All of the Disney Springs Resort Hotels offer shuttle service direct to the Disney parks. While it’s important to check each individual resort, most of them do have a steady schedule of buses that drop off where the Walt Disney World Resort buses drop off. The only park that differs in terms of drop-off location is the Magic Kingdom. Here, you’ll be dropped off at the Ticket and Transportation Center, TTC, and you must take either a monorail or boat over to the park. 

With that said, even with those stipulations, staying at one of these resorts is almost an extension of the Walt Disney World resorts, so you’re getting the ease of visiting the parks at a lesser price. 

Disney Springs is Within Walking Distance

Speaking of convenience, being in the Disney Springs Area means you are within walking distance of the Disney Springs complex. That fact makes staying at these resorts a great choice if you are into heading to Disney Springs late at night.

Hotel Plaza Boulevard intersects with E. Buena Vista Drive around the area of the Marketplace section of Disney Springs. That means you’ll enter near the area of Rainforest Cafe, Once Upon a Toy, and Disney’s Days of Christmas. From there, you can discover the rest of Disney Springs, including the Landing and West Side, which feature many nightlife and entertainment options. 

Early Theme Park Entry Benefits

Staying at an official Disney Springs Walt Disney World Resort means that guests get some of the same perks as those staying at the Disney World resorts, namely Early Theme Park Entry.

What is Early Theme Park Entry? Guests staying at a participating resort can take advantage of getting into the parks 30 minutes before they open. Remember that not all rides will be open during this time, but you will still likely be able to grab a few rides with lower-than-normal waits! Plus, the perk was just confirmed to be continuing into 2024.

Less Expensive Room Costs

When considering a Disney World hotel, you probably assume the room will be quite pricey. But, the benefit of staying at a Disney Springs Resort Hotel is that the cost will likely be significantly less so. With hotel chains such as Hilton, Holiday Inn, and Wyndham, guests can receive discounts from these chains based on loyalty. Guests who are AAA members, AARP members, or have a Promo Code can use them for these resorts, making them super affordable with great deals.

These resorts can start at as little as $49 at the B Resort & Spa to $158 at the Hilton Orlando Buena Vista Palace- Disney Springs Area. Where can you find a hotel for as little as $49 with all of these perks?
