Lake Buena Vista Resort Village & Spa
There are several advantages to this family-favorite hotel, especially the great value offered by an independent resort that doesn't sacrifice too much in the way of location. The short distance from Disney can work as a welcome break, and even the most gung-ho families need time away from the sensory overload. The condo-style suites here provide plenty of space and the self-catering option can help save money. Standards are high, though, and the pirate-themed pool area and full-service spa will appeal to kids and adults respectively. The omnipresent resort fee is nominal and includes free shuttles to the parks for your convenience.
