This post is in no way sponsored by Hilton or Disney, although I’d love to work with both if you know somebody …. This post reflects my own opinions based on my own experiences.
The phrase that comes to mind when thinking about staying at Hilton Buena Vista Palace is a good value for the money. Now if you’ve been reading my blog for long, you know I don’t make a habit of staying at value type resorts and I even created rules for traveling, of which I declared to always stay at a Hilton. Now I don’t live and die by this rule, but I take it very seriously. Why? Because quality. Because when I book a Hilton owned hotel I feel like I already know what I’m getting, no matter what brand in the Hilton line it is.
At Buena Vista Palace, you get to enjoy Disney buses and be on the Disney Springs property. The bus schedule is not the same as being on an actual Disney Resort, but we just walk to Disney Springs, if we need something different than what’s offered at Buena Vista Palace.
The pool is by far one of the best of all the Disney Hotels. We love enjoying the lazy river. This set up is probably only second to Caribbean Beach Resort, which is not my favorite place to stay….
You get to enjoy Magic Hours at Buena Vista Palace, which is a huge plus. This is when we have ran into bus issues but again, we just walk from Disney Springs.
And seriously, the price is typically on point. There’s been several times we’ve stayed for around $125 a night, which puts it in down close to the value resorts in price. Buena Vista Palace is not, however, a value resort. I’m giving it an 8 out of 10, only because the buses could be better and there’s no water slide like at the Disney Resort hotels. You do get the lazy river, which is a huge plus. So, I would say, choose your priorities.
Buena Vista Palace is our go to resort. We have stayed their numerous time and have had a great experience each time. If you’re willing to give up the Mickey soap, it’s a great choice.
