The Wyndham Hotel Corporation was started in 1981, and today the company has grown into a recognized name that provides upscale service in popular destinations throughout the world. The Wyndham Lake Buena Vista Resort is ideal both for families enjoying a trip to Disney World or guests in the area for business. The sizable lobby connects many spaces, including an activity center, gift shop, game room and cocktail bar. Children will love the breakfast buffet with Disney characters-offered three days a week-and three on-site restaurants serve up international cuisine after a long day exploring Orlando's biggest attractions. The kids will also enjoy the hotel's playground, while older children and adults have access to tennis courts, a basketball court and a volleyball court.

nice hotel next to downtown disney

This hotel had a mix of ups and downs. Nice location, staff, and pool. The room was just ok and closer to what you would get from a 2 star.

Great location, good stay.

My wife, my 4 year old son, and I stayed here for 5 nights. The location is great, the shuttle service convenient, and the staff helpful. The rooms are a little dated but were pretty clean. The bed was not very comfortable, but we were so tired after being at the parks it wasn't that big of a deal. We would stay again.

Room experience

The room was dirty, noisy, not worth the money I've spent. I can provide pictures of the dirty towel upon arrival that got missed by the housekeeper. The Tiles in the bathroom had mold, the toilet was dirty, the room is by the receiving area with large trucks. I guest they figure since it is a prepaid room , they can dump the worst dirty room to their guests. I will not recommend this hotel to no one. You can call me for more details. Bad experience.

Awesome location

This Hotel was 5 mins from downtown Disney , shuttle buses to all disney parks free ,the pool was heated and had a great childrens area . The hot tub was a plus as well. The breakfast buffet was excellent and the staff was friendly and helpful..My only regret was that I didnt rent a car . No shuttle to Seaworld, No shuttle to and from airport , and we also took cabs to restaurants that werent located in downtown disney.I could have rented a car for half the money I spent in cab fees

good location, ordinary condition, small space

Close to downtown disney, free shuttle to disney parks, free wi-fi and nice swimming pool for kids. But room is a little bit small and furniture is getting old.

Walking distance to Downtown Disney

PROS: Walking distance to Downtown Disney, Very nice swimming pool area, Free shuttle to Disney theme parks, clean room, affordable price. CONS: The building where the EXTERIOR rooms at are LOUD, whenever someone pass by your room especially the room service cart will wake you up, so staying in bed longer in the morning is not really a good idea. There's $8/day fee for the parking lot, Buffet and food are crazy expensive, so just go to Downtown Disney for food ( I suggest Earl's Sandwiches, yummy food and cheap) or drive to nearest grocery store to grab something to eat. I would probably go back but will AVOID the EXTERIOR rooms possible.

And it is going to get better.

The Wyndham is a Disney partner hotel and I believe will become more Disneyfied soon. They (I believe) will soon start offering the bands and be part of the extra hours hotels amongst other things. As for right now, we love the place.

Down Town Disney is right across the street. T-Rex is our fav. Get the Landry's card. You get priority seating (you skip any line no matter how long it is) as soon as you get there. For $20.00 for life it is well worth it. It covers a number of locations. T-Rex, Rain forest Café, Yak and Yeti but to name a few. You also get discounts in the stores and as you use it points mount up to go towards other discounts. It pays for it self in no time. However, the fact that you get priority seating for me made it worth it.

Fantastic stay!

I booked this hotel 2 weeks ahead of our stay to be on Disney property since there was no availability in any Disney value resorts. The hotel was lovely. Room was clean and smelled fresh on arrival. Pool area was wonderful and fun, and housekeeping was excellent. I would definitely stay here again! Bus service to Disney was also a big plus!

Mixed feelings

Hotel room was fine. Alway trash bags and laundry bags in the walkways. Parking is a nightmare if you plan on parking at this resort don't stay here. They automatically charge you for valet parking even if you do not use it.
