Official Walt Disney World© Hotel with Shuttles to Each Park
The Oasis Aquatic Playground at the Wyndham Lake Buena Vista Resort is the perfect place to spend a hot summer day, as long as you don't mind getting soaked. Kids and a few mischievous parents man the water cannons along the swimming pools and douse vacationers when they least expect it. When you’ve had your kicks at the water park, dry off and hop aboard the hotel’s shuttle to any of Disney’s theme parks to carry on the fun.
As an official Walt Disney World© hotel, the Wyndham brims with little touches of the mouse's magic. On Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday mornings, you can dig into a breakfast buffet at the onsite LakeView Restaurant while Goofy and Pluto mingle with diners and pose for photos. Throughout the day, an onsite director of fun organizes children's activities, such as poolside bingo and crafts. Younger guests may also visit the Kids' Corner and its board games, coloring books, and Wii gaming system.
Pillow-top mattresses adorn each bed in cozy double and king guest rooms. High-speed WiFi makes it easy to check park showtimes, and the flat-screen TV lets you watch Snow White to search for the fabled eighth dwarf, DeVito . Disney-view rooms peer out over Downtown Disney© Marketplace, and provide front-row seats for the nightly Epcot fireworks.
