Staying at a Walt Disney World Partner Hotel

We love staying on property at Walt Disney World. For us, it just feels like home! And with Disney slowly bringing back more perks for its on-site guests, it just makes it easy! But staying at a Walt Disney World Partner hotel makes sense sometimes too. And many Walt Disney World Partner Hotels have perks of their own.  All of the Walt Disney World Partner hotels have transportation to and from the Parks. Each hotel handles it differently, but it’s complimentary and generally convenient. Partner Hotels at Walt Disney World also offer early entry, which allows guests to enjoy some areas of the theme parks 30 minutes earlier than non-resort guests. 

Most partner hotels also offer the ability for guests to make dining reservations 60 days + 10. Meaning you’ll have the same chances as getting those coveted dining reservations as those staying on property at Walt Disney World.

They also have beautiful views of Disney Springs and Epcot, a lazy river, lagoon pool and splash pad for the kids. As a guest here, you will also get to experience Early Entry 30 minutes prior to Park open. You can learn all about Hilton Orlando Buena Vista Palace here.

DoubleTree Suites by Hilton Orlando

Another Hilton in the Disney Springs area, DoubleTree is also the furthest. It’ll take you almost 20 minutes to walk to Disney Springs from this hotel.
