Orlando Trip

I bought 5 day Orlando trip (flight+car+hotel). Except the flight ticket, rental car and hotel was very well priced. This hotel is very conveniently located and Disney parks were around 5 miles (15 mins drive) away. Universal parks were 20 mins away. Overall great hotel. But they can have a little better lobby and option of continental breakfast.

Great family vacation

My daughters loved the pool and hot tub. The room was clean. We had a great time and the shuttles to Disney World saved us the hassle of finding and paying for parking. We found out the shuttles do not go to any other parks besides Disney World so you will need a rental car if you go to Universal Studios or Sea World.

Love the Wyndham Lake Buena

You really can't get much better than this hotel for the price, location and well all around awesomeness of the place. We have stayed a couple of times now and will stay again and recommend it to anyone. My only complaint would be that the pictures you see online of the rooms are not always what you are going to get. They need to update that so you can see what you are paying for. The rooms in the tower are very different form the main buildings.. Not that they are bad but not quite a nice as you see in the pictures.. Still, they are good, clean, comfy and well worth it.

Great value for the location

For what you pay there is no better choice. Free shuttle to the parks and your within walking distance to downtown Disney. The room was clean and the staff was polite and helpful.

Good over night stop

In essence it was a good experience. The issue that concerned me most was, the lack of a non skid floor in the bath tub.

Late room cleaning.

They didn't come around to clean our room until late afternoon, exactly the time when one would like to return to the room to rest from the day's adventures. Breakfast was also a problem. The two choices were either an overpriced snack bar on the ground floor or the restaurant where one either has to order a super expensive buffet on some days or a "complete" breakfast, which is also overpriced, on the other days..

Dining tip: Long walk from hotel

If you are looking for a hotel to go exclusively to the Disney parks, this is a convenient place to stay. However, the hotel restaurant as well as others within reasonable walking distance are very expensive. For more reasonable priced restaurants, you need a car.

A perfect Disney Vacation

When we landed in Orlando we got lost and we called the hotel and they were so helpful and wonderful. The hotel was very clean and we will stay there every time we come to Florida and every hotel employee was fantastic. The only thing that they should add is a restaurant in the hotel that was the only inconveince. Thank you Wyndham!!!

Disney Christmas getaway

It was a great location and was very affordable. The Disney transportation bus service was a great deal for me and I was cross the street from downtown Disney.
