Best Hotels Near Disney World With a Shuttle

Are you ready to spend some time in the warm, Florida sunshine?!

Disney Springs on a sunny day

You’re on your way to Orlando! But whether you’re looking to do more than just visit the Disney parks, or if that’s you’re ENTIRE plan, but you’re looking to save some money, we’ve compiled the best resorts in Orlando that provide a shuttle to the Disney parks. Because it’s vacation, after all, time to take it easy and find fewer things to worry about, like navigating theme park parking lots and traffic.

Disney World has over 40 Good Neighbor Hotels, which are hotels that Disney has reviewed and “hand-picked” as options that offer guests value, convenience, and meet Disney’s service standards. These resorts are permitted to partner with Disney to allow guests staying there to experience some of the “perks” that Disney Resort hotels experience, like Extra Morning Hours. One of the “convenience” metrics is that most of these resorts provide transportation to the Disney parks (though some do charge a fee).

We’ve dug through the Good Neighbor Resorts, and a few other bonus ones, to help you know which are the BEST resorts in the Disney area that provides free shuttles to the Disney parks. Now, shuttle frequency may vary from hotel to hotel, so be sure to check with your resort before you book, so you have a full understanding of what you can expect during your stay.

To help you find the BEST one, we’re using Google for this, which bases reviews out of 5 stars. Let’s get to it!

B Resort & Spa

The B Resort & Spa Lake Buena Vista is located near Disney Springs, and is considered a “boutique hotel experience” that blends sophisticated theming with family-friendly fun. It seems as though B Resort guests agree, as it received 3.6 out of 5 stars.

If you can pull yourself away from the pool, you’ll find lots of amenities to enjoy and spacious rooms. Caribe Royal Orlando ranked 4.5 out of 5 among guests.

DoubleTree Suites by Hilton Hotel Lake Buena Vista

Starting at $109 per night, the DoubleTree Suites are a great option for those traveling in a larger group. There are one and two bedroom suites available — this is the only “all suite” hotel in the Disney Springs area.

Just like the other hotels on this list, the DoubleTree features Early Theme Park Entry and free shuttles to the parks — though you do need to reserve a spot! Guests rated this hotel a 4.1 out of 5.

Drury Plaza Hotel Orlando

One of the newest hotels to join the Disney Springs area opened in October 2022.  Who doesn’t love a shiny, new hotel?

Four Seasons Resort Walt Disney World Orlando

The Four Seasons has a reputation for luxury and posh resorts, and the reviews from its guests maintain that reputation.

Four Seasons Orlando

With 4.8 out of 5 stars, you’ll be in the for the stay of a lifetime. But be sure to prepare your budget for this stay, because it’s far from the Holiday Inn (which is nice but not really considered posh).

Gaylord Palms Resort

The Gaylord Palms is also racking the higher reviews with 4.4 out of 5 stars. This resort can be a destination on its own with its theming, activities, and dining.

It’s also super popular around Christmas time with its ICE activities and opportunities to meet Santa and decorate cookies with Mrs. Claus. So, if you need a break from the parks, you won’t be bored at the Gaylord (ha! gotta love a rhyme!). Though it’s not considered a “Good Neighbor Hotel” it’s still a very nice option.

Hilton Orlando Buena Vista Palace Resort

One of the hotels on this list features a huge, “Float Lagoon” pool, complete with a splash pad for the kiddos! The Hilton Orlando Buena Vista Palace boasts a 4 out of 5 stars, and is within walking distance to Disney Springs.

Enjoy transportation to the Disney parks, plus heated pools and Early Theme Park Entry! The close proximity to Disney Springs is what garners a 4.2 out of 5 rating from guests.

Holiday Inn Orlando

As Pitbull would say, “We at the hotel, motel, Holiday Inn” and in this case, he’s right. The Holiday Inn Orlando is a popular choice for many guests looking to stay outside of the Disney bubble, as they’ve rated it 4.4 out of 5.

Hourly shuttles will take you to the Disney parks, but you will need to reserve a spot in advance. If you’re heading to Disney Springs, though, you can walk there from this hotel — or take advantage of the swimming pool, hot tub, and Early Theme Park Entry.

Hyatt Place Orlando Lake Buena Vista

If you’re ballin’ on a budget, the Hyatt Place could fit the bill (literally). Nights start off around $115.

With 4.2 out of 5 stars, based on guest reviews, the common thread was that it was clean, reasonably priced, and conveniently located near many popular restaurants within walking distance.

JW Marriott Orlando, Grande Lakes

JW Marriott is the upper echelon of the Marriott brand of hotels, so you know when you’re staying here, you’re gonna pay a pretty penny, but you’ll have a top-tier experience. And when you compare it’s typical $325 or so a night to the prices of a Disney resort, it’s a little easier to swallow.

And most guests agree, ranking this JW Marriott establishment at 4.6 out of 5 stars. Plus, you can put those Marriott reward points to good use.

Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress Disney Area Orlando

The Hyatt Regency comes in with the same ranking as the JW Marriott, with 4.6 out of 5 stars, but it’s a little more than $100 cheaper per night.


It’s got a loyal fan base, and is also a popular destination for convention attendees, which some guests say impacts the “vacation charm” of their stay, but overall still keep coming back year after year.

Sheraton Lake Buena Vista Resort Orlando

You may be able to stay here for less than $100 a night, and that’s quite a bargain these days!

The reviews bring it in at 3.9 out of 5 stars, mostly commenting on some of the dated furnishings and comments about using artificial fragrance to cover up other aged smells. But overall, guests find it clean and comfortable. And for $100 a night, that’s not a bad review!

Signia by Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek Resort Orlando

Signia by Hilton Bonnet Creek Hotel is a recently renovated hotel located close to all the action but far enough away that you can take a breather.
