Shopping & Dining

Most of our guests choose to stay with us because we offer fully-equipped kitchens and dining areas for families.  Stocking your refrigerator and pantry with groceries provides an affordable alternative to dining out for three meals a day.  Our kitchen has a full size refrigerator, stove and oven, coffee maker, toaster, microwave oven and dishwasher.  Suites are furnished with all the dishes, silverware, glassware, utensils, and pots and pans needed for an extended stay in your “home away from home”.

There are several independent restaurants located in the retail space in front of our resort.   You may easily walk to Starbucks, Cici’s Pizza and Dunkin Donuts. A new Subway has opened !!

We do not permit soliciting or the distribution of handbills or flyers on our property.  This is an issue that affects every area hotel.  Despite our best efforts, from time to time you may notice a restaurant flyer or menu that has been placed under your door.  We recommend that you do not order food from these establishments. Many of these vendors operate illegally and without a license from the health department. Guest services can provide you with several safe and reliable delivery options.

When you do want to dine out, there are over 62 restaurants within two miles of our resort.  You will find fast food, buffets, casual eateries and Orlando fine dining just minutes from our front door.  Many of these restaurants will deliver to your suite.  For more information or restaurant reservations contact the concierge in our lobby.

There are hundreds of shops located in our Lake Buena Vista neighborhood.  Within a short distance you’ll find the Crossroads Shopping Center, Orlando Premium Outlet Vineland, and the Lake Buena Vista Outlet Mall.

We will be starting regularly scheduled shuttle service to the Lake Buena Vista Factory Stores on Monday the 23rd of June. The bus will pick up our guests each day, 7 days a week, at 10:45 am and there will be return shuttles to our resort each day at 1:30 pm, 2:50 pm, 4:30 pm, 6:00 pm and 7:00 pm.

The Guests need to be ready 10 minutes before the pick-up time and the drop off point at the mall is exactly where the driver will pick them up to return them to the hotel.  Please pick up a  referral card from the guest service desk so that you can get a $400 coupon sheet to help you while you shop.  There is not a wheelchair lift but if you have a chair that folds up the driver will be more than happy to help you into the van along with your chair.
