Lake Buena Vista, Florida, is one of two towns fully owned and operated by The Walt Disney Company. The town is named after the nearby lake, which offers opportunities for water sports. Some popular places for guests to visit include the close by Magnolia Golf Course, or Fort Wilderness. You can also take the Disney charter buses to nearby attractions such as Epcot, and the other Disney theme parks.
Most guests stay at one of the theme park resorts or hotels, but there are plenty of others to be found elsewhere. To get to Lake Buena Vista, you can take one of the resort's charter buses or take the park's monorail. For a fun and functional excursion, take a paddle boat or a charter ferry service to Lake Buena Vista. The community is also accessible by Interstate 4. The nearest airport is Orlando International Airport (MCO).
The weather in Lake Buena Vista is hot and rainy in the summer, and warm and drier in the winter. Most of the nightlife takes place in neighboring Bay Lake, which is also operated by The Walt Disney Company. While you're staying in Lake Buena Vista, try the traditional American fare, including snow cones, hot dogs and cotton candy. Consider timing your visit for the New Year's Eve celebration, or the annual Food and Wine Fest.
