If you’re planning a trip to Disney World, you might want to consider staying at a Disney Springs-area hotel. These are hotels that are officially located on Disney World property but operated by third parties.
And they’re a great choice for guests on a budget or for those guests who want to be within walking distance of Disney Springs, especially as guests get many of the same perks as they would at a Disney-owned hotel (like early theme park entry). And now, a brand new hotel in the area is accepting reservations!
The Drury Plaza Hotel at Disney Springs sits on the property where the Best Western Lake Buena Vista used to reside. However, Drury Hotels bought the space and tower that was there in 2019. A second tower was added to the property to increase capacity. And reservations are now open!
The hotel, which is located about half a mile from Disney Springs, will offer free shuttle service to all four Disney World theme parks. Guests also get a free hot breakfast, evening snacks, cold beverages, and free Wi-Fi throughout the property. There will also be several on-site restaurants, as well as a pool and arcade.
Reservations are now available for stays on and after October 27th. We checked the prices for that first week (October 27th through November 3rd) and received a standard rate of around $163 ($157 for Drury Rewards members) for a room with 2 Queen Beds or 1 King Bed. These rates will vary, depending on the time of your stay, though.
That pricing puts the hotel on par with Disney World’s value resorts, so it could be a good option to consider if you want the extra perk of free breakfast, as well as a few other amenities, like a microwave in each room.
We’ll keep an eye on the hotel’s progress and let you know what it’s like once it opens! So stay tuned for more!
