Disney is not in Orlando

It is in Lake Buena Vista but it is in the realm of Orlando and people fly into Orlando or Sanford (20 miles north of Orlando off Interstate 4).

I suggest trying to stay on Disney Properties

The perks and convenience by staying in any of the 35,000 rooms outweigh the savings by hotels off property.

Don't forget all the area has to offer


Atlantic Ocean: 45-60 minutes east
Gulf of Mexico 60-90 minutes west
Kennedy Space center 60 minutes east
Universal Theme Park 15 minutes east
Seaworld Theme Park 15 minutes east
International Drive with its shopping, dining and attractions 20 minutes east
Downtown and Church Street Station-15 minutes east

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Disney--everything you can imagine (for a price)
  • Cons:The price can be steep if you are not careful
  • In a nutshell:LBV is Disney and vice-versa

    Great pictures and info. WDW is such a fabulous place and I agree that the resorts can be destinations in themselves! As DVC members we've stayed at several, but never at the new Bay Lake so great to see real photos of that. The photos from your meet sure made it look like everyone had a great time!

      Hi there...and yes, I was pleasantly surprised by Bay Lake which I thought would be cold and too contemporary. And yes, the VT meet was awesome!
