Lake Buena Vista Hotels

Lake Buena Vista, based in Florida’s always-sunny Orange County, is a ritzy resort area stippled with luxury hotels and retreats. The area is centered around the lake itself - a glistening body of water that shimmers silver-blue in the Florida sun - and is surrounded by a succession of family-fun Disneyland attractions, from safari parks to zooming roller coasters. Slightly further afield, through the palm-studded lakeland of Orange County, you’ll find the buzzing city of Orlando, where many more family activities await.

Things to see

By staying in Lake Buena Vista, you’re immersing yourself in the magical wonderland of Disney, where the high-spirited entertainment never ends. Start your day by visiting Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park, which blends unforgettable safari tours with loop-the-loop roller-coasters. Kids will go wild for the towering giraffes and mighty elephants. If animals aren’t your thing, take the family to Magic Kingdom Park, the first of Florida’s Disney parks. Here, kids can meet their favorite Disney heroes, visit the pink-blue Cinderella Castle, and explore an intergalactic city in Tomorrowland. For something a bit different, spend an afternoon exploring the nearby Tibet-Butler Nature Preserve, where trails wind through tranquil wetlands full of wonderful wildlife - stop by the educational center, which teaches kids about the natural world. If you decide to drive to Orlando, don’t miss out on Universal Studios, where roller-coasters ride through favorite movie scenes, like Jaws and E.T.

Hotels in Lake Buena Vista

Lake Buena Vista is home to a handful of luxurious 3-star Disney themed hotels and resorts. These Lake Buena Vista hotels provide huge outdoor pools with trickling waterfalls and sweeping slides, and in-house restaurants with eclectic menus. You’ll also benefit from free WiFi and, if needed, in-room childcare. On the other end of the scale, those seeking an utterly other-worldly experience should stay in a 5-star Lake Buena Vista hotel. Here, you’ll enjoy all the benefits of adjacent golf courses, multiple restaurants, rooftop terraces, and sublime full-service spas.

Where to stay

In Lake Buena Vista, you’ll enjoy a stress-free family-friendly atmosphere, all in the honey-like Florida sun. It’s the perfect for those families who want to explore Disney’s many magical amusement parks, but who also want easy access to other Orange County sights. But for those families who prefer city excitement, nearby Williamsburg is ideal. This urban area - full of restaurants and bars - is equidistant from the Disney attractions, and the electrifying city of Orlando. Of course, if you want utter immersion in the fantastical world of Disney, stay in the nearby Walt Disney World Resort.

How to get to Lake Buena Vista

Catch a flight to Orlando International Airport, which serves direct flights from US cities, like Los Angeles, New York, and Chicago, and international hotspots like London, Frankfurt, and Mexico City. To get to Lake Buena Vista from the airport, you can rent a car onsite, hop in a taxi, or take Disney’s Magical Express, a free bus that speeds along to Disney’s resort hotels. For this option, you’ll need to book ahead with your hotel. Once there, Disney’s buses, boats, and monorails provide fun ways to get around the resorts, but to travel further out, having your own car can be handy.
