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.

Vacation

The room was ordinary, but not as clean as you would expect for a Disney hotel. The ice bucket was full of water from the previous guests, garbage was left in the bathroom. Even when we came back to our room in the evening even though the beds were made, tables were not cleaned, ice bucket was still full of water, and they never even vacuumed. We stayed 4 nights, they charge $18 + tax resort fee p/ night and $8 a night for parking, which is ridiculous. Will not stay here again.

Nice but not quite there

This was a beautiful property. Great pool and the staff was great. There rooms were tiny though and didn't even have a microwave in the room. We also couldn't get queen sized beds. As for location you couldn't get much closer to Disney without being in the park itself since you are right next door to Downtown Disney and Typhoon Lagoon. Over all positive, but there is definitely room for improvement.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

Downtown Disney is less crowded during the day time hours when other people are at the parks. You can have packages sent to your hotel or home.

Disappointed

The entrance, lobby and guest areas including the pool were great, then as you pass that and actually enter into the hotel the elevators and the room itself were way too aged and needed to be upgraded badly. They were clean, but way too dated. Wyndham has waited too long on investments in the property and as a result have lost me as a return customer. The rooms and guest parking areas are 10 years behind schedule. I felt like I was in a 3rd world country. Quite unfortunate because Wyndham is a good company.

Loud room next to the elevator

The hotel itself is ok, although furniture is getting a little old. Location is very good as is the pool at the hotel. Our room was right next to the elevators and on the first night we got not sleep because it was so loud, not from people using the evelvators but because of the noise the elevators made when they went up and down and the constant noise when the doors opened and closed. When we complained the next day the staff said they would try and move us, and thankfully they found another room. They also said they wanted to refund us the night but as we boooked online and would need to claim through this site. I hope someone reads these reviews and has the courtesy to contact me regarding the refund

Awesome experience!

This is by far one of my favorite hotels especially since it's on Disney property but not the cost of your average Disney theme hotels. Staff was exceptionally accommodating! Would recommend this hotel to everyone!

Never back again

I spent 3 hours looking for the best hotel to had a great vacations with my daughter and the only what I had booking here was the ubication. Was no cheap because when we arrived they charge me 110 dls more. The room was no like the picture and they sent us to different area "low categories" I asked why and they answered: because you booked with cheap.... Great. The kid was no free.... What was free???? No breakfast. No shuttle to universal, just magic kingdom, so is no "to the parks". So, about all my comments I don't think I will book again here, they tell me call and complain, but I'm pretty sure it will be just waste if time., should I need do it?
