Keep in touch with your friends back home
Free high speed wireless internet is available in guest rooms and public areas.
The Best Western Lake Buena Vista is eighteen stories tall, which means there are great views from the top floors. There are guestrooms available with a view of the Disney park fireworks, but there is a premium charge for them. No view room? No problem! Try an exterior stairwell above the 8th floor on the West side of the hotel.
Enjoy Downtown Disney area and the parks
Being close to the downtown Disney area is a key advantage to this resort. You can walk the three blocks, or hop on a shuttle to explore Downtown Disney. You can also take a boat from the downtown Disney marina to Saratoga Springs, Old Key West or the Port Orleans resorts. Downtown Disney is a transportation hub, so you can catch a bus to explore any Disney resort.
Best Western Lake Buena Vista also provides a free shuttle to the Disney parks that departs every half hour.
Looking for some non-Disney fun?
Catch a shuttle to the Premium Outlets for some shopping, or play miniature golf at Pirate’s Cove in the nearby Crossroads Shopping Center.“A Teen’s Guide to Walt Disney World” is not affiliated with Best Western Lake Buena Vista!
