Kids love the resort’s aquatic playground, Disney character breakfasts

Located across the street from Downtown Disney, the Wyndham Lake Buena Vista Resort puts guests steps from unforgettable attractions like the Cirque du Soleil La Nouba show, Downtown Disney Marketplace and Pleasure Island. The magic is alive at the Wyndham Lake Buena Vista Resort, too - Disney characters dine with resort guests three days a week. Kids love the aquatic playground, while mom and dad chill out at the poolside Oasis Bar and Grill. A complimentary shuttle is available to Disney theme parks and water parks.

  • Four on-site restaurants, including Disney character-theme breakfasts
  • 24-hour fitness center
  • Free transportation to Disney parks

  • Kids Recreation Zone equals fun time with organized activities
  • 100% Non-smoking hotel
Rooms
Comfortable, cozy rooms at the Wyndham Lake Buena Vista Resort sport a contemporary look with rich dark woods and luxury linens and bedding. In upgraded rooms, wake up to views of Walt Disney World Resort, panoramic cityscapes, or the hotel's aquatic playground, pool and Lake Buena Vista. Standard exterior rooms provide unbeatable value, with two double beds, exterior entrance, Wi-Fi Internet access, refrigerator, in-room safe and coffee.

Features

Get the vacation started at the aquatic playground. Wyndham Lake Buena Vista Resort guests enjoy two pools, lush landscaping and a large hot tub overlooking Lake Buena Vista. Kids love interactive water features like spraying water cannons.

 

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.

Dining

The Lakeview Restaurant is famous for its Disney character breakfasts, but also be sure to stop by for dinner, when lake views and fine dining combine for an elegant, relaxing experience.

Eh it's just ok

This hotel was listed as a 4 star, but it didn't live up to that reputation. Most of the rooms were motel style walk up with exterior entrances. The room was clean for the most part. Some staining of the tile grout. The cable outlet was broken and missing, and the room was pretty small. Lots of small dirty spots on other doors within the complex. The pool area was great and the staff were friendly. If you are expecting a luxurious 4 star...look elsewhere.

good experience to rest

I went to celebrate my birthday in one of the Disney parks and the location of the hotel was wonderfull for me, because you just need to cross the street to be in downtown disney and it's only 5 minutes from the hotel to the parks.

Almost perfect ... GREAT location.

[...] Three characteristics of this particular hotel made the decision to stay in Orlando ... instead of my hometown of Tampa ... a no-brainer. Free self parking, the huge resort-style pool with poolside bar/restaurant and last, but certainly not least, the Regal sun is located a short five-minute walk from the Rainforest Cafe end of Downtown Disney. Our group of 10-20 paddlers from Tampa were able to take advantage of all three selling points during our two-night stay. We could have driven 70 miles to Downtown Disney from Tampa the morning of the event and back home immediately afterwards, but the rate, location and amenities of the Regal Sun allowed us all to enjoy an inexpensive weekend away from home.To summarize, the Regal Sun offers destination resort amenities without destination resort pricing. A person or family from outside the State of Florida could fly in, take a shuttle to the hotel and enjoy their time in Orlando without the need for an expensive rental car. Because of the wonderful pool, they wouldn't even need to leave the property!

Nightlife tip: Short walk from hotel

The Regal Sun is located a short walk from Downtown Disney, which has a variety of family and adult nightlife options to choose from. The fact that you can access all of this without the need to get in a vehicle and drive is a HUGE benefit. On-site, free scheduled shuttle service to the Disney parks is a great incentive to stay here, as well.

Inexpensive Hotel Cost, Great Location

For the price of the hotel, the room was pretty nice. For an inexpensive price we got a great location, nice staff, great pool, and nice room design. The hotel is exactly a 2.5 minute walk from its entrance to Downtown Disney. My only complaint was that upon entering the room my husband and I noticed dry, white stains on the red quilts. We called room service and they changed the red covers promptly. Otherwise, everything else went well.

The rooms and beds were small. Pillows provided by hotel were horrible. Nothing about this place was (4) star quality. Expensive food at downstairs cafe. Bar tender was excellent We were able to walk and catch shuttles to Disney attractions which was nice.

Well worth it!

The Regal Sun was great for my Disney Trip! If you are thinking of staying at a Disney Value Resort because of price, then consider this resort too. It's more like a moderate resort at a value price. I really enjoyed the environment, the lobby, and the hotel pool. My six year old had a great time there. The children's services at the Regal Sun are great. There are hula hoops and bubbles for kids to play with while waiting for the Disney bus. There is also a section of the lobby with children's toys and games, and a Nintendo Wii to play with in the morning. The Regal Sun has activities every day for kids. The person who is in charge of the activities is called the "Director of Fun". She has a really great lizard hunt on Tuesday and Thursday for all the kids, and crafts on Wednesday. It gives you about a half hour to relax or take care of travel arrangements while your child is busy. The pool was amazing!! It has a children's area, a lap area, a relaxing area with a waterfall, and a hot tub. There is a pool bar which also serves lunch/dinner sandwiches, chicken tenders, etc. The area has a great view overlooking the hotel gardens and a natural waterway. The hotel has a resort charge which is applied to your credit card when you get there. But in return there is free wireless internet if you bring a laptop, all the kids programs, free boarding pass printing (bring your airline confirmation numbers), and the bus shuttles. I felt a $10.00 charge would have been more appropriate. Call the hotel to see what their current resort fee is before booking. The only other thing I missed was a complementary breakfast. Even if it was just toast and jelly and some juice selections, that would have made the hotel an even better value over the Disney Value Resorts. I am a frequent disney traveler, but this is the first time I've stayed at a Downtown Disney property. I would definitely choose this property over a value resort. The services are a lot better and the rooms are much nicer too. I would recommend it to everyone (singles, couples, and families)!

The LYNX bus 111 (Public Transportation) picks up and drops off on the corner. The regular fare is $2.00 per person. If you are only carrying one piece of luggage per person it can be a very cost-effective way to get to and from the airport. The busses are very safe and clean!

Regal Sun

Great location, within a short walking distance to Downtown Disney. Slightly disappointed with the room, but it was still very nice. Being that it was a Disney sponsored hotel, I expected to at least be able to get a pass for parking and/or the late night passes for the park. Neither of which were available. Otherwise a very nice place with a helpful staff
