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.

Weekend Getaway to Walt Disney World

We spent our day and a half at Walt Disney World. We checked in early afternoon, but our room wasn't ready, so they put our luggage in a secure room; then road the bus to the Park. We returned around 12:30am the next day and picked up our room keys at the front desk. If you try to check in before 4pm, you will want to make sure you speak with someone at the front desk so that they know you are there. If you go to the Park and then try to check in late that night, you may loose your room. We saw this happen to the family in front of us. They did not check in with the front desk until midnight that night. They did not have room waiting for them. You can't expect a hotel to sit on an empty room like that, unless you request a late check-in time. The service was good, but the room was less than the usual. The lobby looks much better than the rooms. If all you need is a bed to sleep in, this hotel will get the job done, but if you are use to that quality look & feel, this hotel may not be the one for you. We found several deals around the area, especially for Florida residents during the off season.

Entertainment tip: Short drive from hotel

Use the bus transportation to go to-and-from Walt Disney World. It will save you money on parking as well as the hassle of waiting in line to enter the parking lots. Plus, you can travel between parks much easier. The buses run until an hour and half after the park closes.

Great getaway and good price

This was the first time we stayed at this hotel, and we liked the location because it was so close to Downtown Disney. The staff was very nice and the room was clean. We usually stay at one of the Theme Hotels, but this was a great price and we enjoyed our stay.

Hotel

Checking in took forever. The lobby could not locate my reservation and they took it down to reservation, where it was identified [...]. I was given a room on the 3rd floor, which is behind the stores at the lobby. Sleeping was impossible, very noisy! The room has no bathtub!Most horrible experience was, the room is infected with mosquitoes! I spent the first night in the room flying down the bugs. I could not sleep in there the next day and I asked to speak with the supervisor, who assigned me another room at the tower. The parking lot is dark and parking was far away from the room.The rest of my stay went better.

Disney Boardwalk is a perfect relaxing evening for a couple. But do not go until 7.. That is when everything lights up and begins.

It was average

The shuttle was great and convenient and the location was better than I expected. Don't hope for anything special with the rooms though. Our room was small, included NO king size bed, which we had reserved, and it was very dark.

6 Day Stay

This hotel was at a great location. The closeness to Downtown Disney and the Disney shuttles worked out great. There are a great number of restaurants in the area. (the hotel restaurant and lobby snack area are a little pricey). Pool facilities were very nice. The room was comfortable. The only downfall was that it smelled like it had orinally been a smoking room. The bed was nicely made each day but we went 3 days without the in room coffee being replaced and the old filter pack thrown out. (the in room coffee tastes aweful)
