Every year, we feature a few select recommendations for your Central Florida summer vacation. In our case, this is typically a staycation, of course… and we have had a few firsthand experiences with the Disney Springs Resort Hotels – which never fail to impress. This time around, we’re spotlighting the B Resort & Spa!
The B Resort features 394 guest rooms and suites. Select rooms include bunk beds, kitchenettes, and/or wet bars; and all rooms feature exquisitely comfortable beds, 47″ HD LCD TVs, Aveda bath products, in-room safes, iron/ironing board, mini-fridge, and ultra-modern power hubs with USB, HDMI and international outlet plug-ins to keep everyone connected (this goes well with the FREE WiFi throughout the resort). Compared to many area hotels, B Resort has an impressive selection of television channels and media options. Even the most basic rooms are spacious, sleek and inviting. The bathrooms feature dazzling, top-of-the-line elements and exceptional accommodation for cleanup after the parks before a night out, or a relaxing extended soak in the jacuzzi tub. These rooms are so comfortable that you’ll need a little added motivation to make your way to the nearby Disney parks (and if your room is properly positioned, your fireworks view will make being there even more appealing as night falls)!
That extra motivation may come in the form of the Disney-styled amenities you’ll receive… even though you smartly avoided the Disney resort price tag! As a B Resort guest, you can take advantage of the complimentary shuttle to all Walt Disney World® Theme Parks and Disney Springs™ as well as Disney’s Extra Magic Hours!
Believe it or not, some people do come to Orlando without spending every waking moment in a theme park. If you want to take advantage of a little vacation on your vacation, you’ll appreciate the B Resort’s zero-entry pool, B Indulged® by AVEDA full-service spa, and the benefit of preferred tee times at Disney championship golf courses. Children are sure to love the Kids’ Zone – a great place for games, movies, and socializing. In-room dining, the quick service “Pick-Up”, and American Kitchen Bar & Grill offer a diverse array of reasonably priced dining options on-property to appease every palate. Sure – you’re technically at the Walt Disney World Resort, but if you’re smart enough to realize that not everything you do or buy needs to happen within the park gates, you’ll find treasures and experiences of equivalent quality at a much less dramatic cost right at your resort.
The Disney Springs Resort Hotels are regularly offering fantastic specials to cut costs even further. Why not extend your stay by a day or two with the money you’ll save – and make sure you plan time to take full advantage of the resort itself. This one is the kind you’ll want to return to year after year!
Highlights: Views were stellar – staff very helpful, attentive, and pleasant – lobby smells AMAZING!
Drawbacks: Parking is a bit convoluted here, and there is a fee for self-parking that isn’t much less than the valet cost.
