Features

Is there a cooler job title than Director of Fun? With an ever-changing schedule of games, the resort's activities planner makes sure kids of all ages have a magical day at the Wyndham Lake Buena Vista Resort. Breakfast with Disney characters is also a must - the gang stops by on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays in the Lakeview Restaurant.

Problems

Since last stay a year or so ago, they have eliminated allowing you to park your own car, so need to go through valet service whenever going in or out. This is compounded by not allowing you to phone ahead to have car brought up to front. You have to go to the valet stand. Staff at times seemed confused about what policy was; e.g. valet service said it was as I've described, but inside staff wasn't sure. They have very, very little healthy food in the coffee/snack area; e.g., donuts, etc., are huge, 6" or more in diameter, and covered with chocolates or other sweetens . Hot water comes out of cold water side in bathroom sink on 10th floor.

nice location to get to Disney Downtown

All in all, this was a fairly "medium" hotel, nit great, nothing particularly wonderful, and the passing you off to a salesperson after checkin - well, thats just cheezy. However, if you are spending the weekend at Downtown, you can't beat the location. If you are planning on getting onto I4 during the weekend- you picked the wrong hotel!

Great location for a Disney vacation

This destination served its purpose for our trip. The location is great with Disney buses providing transportation to and from all the parks. It is literally right across the street from Downtown Disney. The valets (cars and bags) were extraordinarily polite and were very helpful. I feel I got what I paid for at around $100 per night. I had a family of four on our trip and we had an ordinary hotel room with two double beds. The room was clean but we could have benefited from a microwave in the room.

Good not Great

Everyone was nice and the rooms are clean. I really can't say anything negative. Personally I'd rather pay an extra $30 and stay in a 4-star hotel. If you want to save an extra few bucks this is a good hotel.

Average at best

The hotel is average at best. The room was clean. They do not have "do not disturb" signs for the doors so the cleaning staff knocked and walked in twice during our 4 day stay. They charge resort fee for each day you re there. You have to valet park your vehicle which is an additional cost. They offer a text service for them to pull your car up ahead of time but I received a busy text back the three times I tried to use that service. The location of the hotel is good but waiting for valet every time you come and go from the resort takes any positives of the location away. The pool area is nice and clean.

Did Not Get Room which We Paid For, Hotel Front Desk Staff Mistake After Mistake

Upon arriving to the Hotel with a late check in, we did not get the room which we paid for through this site. The room was supposed to be a View Tower Room as stated on our receipt. Hotel staff said that they ran out of the room type we reserved. This is unacceptable! They moved us to a crappier room. The next morning, hotel staff said that they would get us our room after we come back at the end of the day. When the gave us a new room, it was still the wrong room. I had to show my receipt to prove what type of room I had booked through this site. I believe this site and this hotel have a communication problem in not booking the proper room for which we paid for. 1. I am less likely to book through this site believing that they did not follow through in getting my room properly booked with the Hotel. 2. I am less likely to book with this hotel due to repeated mistakes by the hotel front desk staff which wasted precious time and memories.

Great location

The location was excellent for walking to Downtown Disney and we really loved the pool area. We found our room modest and small, not really four star. Our bathroom door was broken and we had a table but no chairs in the room, they did promptly fix both once we reported. The staff was very friendly but we didn't find anything exceptional. We were satisfied, just think this hotel is more like a 3 star and you should know before booking.

Our experience

This was the 3rd time we have stayed at the Wyndham. When we got into our room it was not what we had paid for. The room temperature was freezing as it was only 62 degrees. Called the front desk and they apologized for not letting us know that the king beds were overbooked. How can this happen? They did send a maintenance crew up to fix the temp and within a matter of a few minutes we were comfortable again.

Cost was high for not much of anything special

First I was told they had free breakfast, for two people 28 dollars. We had kids running up and down the room above our room. The beds were way to hard. Good they rooms were clean, close to everything. Just expensive for not what was promised. If you are going to Disney World stay on site.
