Just outside of Disney World, BEST WESTERN Lake Buena Vista Resort Hotel offers a slew of family-friendly amenities, including an outdoor heated pool and kid’s pool, arcade, free Wi-Fi access, room service, complimentary self parking and complimentary transportation to Walt Disney World theme parks.
Plus, you can get a room with a view of Disney (Deluxe Queen Room with Disney Views) — you’ll be able to see Epcot’s fireworks right from your window! Other accommodations include the Deluxe Room with Two Queen Beds, Deluxe Queen Room with Microwave and Refrigerator, suitable for families of four or five (with the use of a rollaway bed).
The hotel has three onsite dining options: Trader’s Island Grill (a favorite for breakfast), MarketPlace (a grab-and-go eatery), and Flamingo Cove Lounge.

Front desk clerk was not friendly or helpful (just the one we encountered). Rooms were ok. Needs updating, but hotel is in major building renovations, so we were ok with that. No microwave in rooms. Slow draining tub. Mediocre food in restaurant.
We stay at this Best Western almost every time we come to Disney. Bus service to the parks, Extra Magic Hours and great Disney View from upgraded rooms. Only things I wish they had was free breakfast and no resort fee (husbands opinion). Construction going on is annoying at 6am.
