Hello everyone and happy Wednesday!!!! I may no longer be wandering the Disney Parks, but the second best thing one can do is write about them, right?!
So on our latest trip to Orlando, my daughter and I scored an incredible deal at the B Resort & Spa at Disney Springs. An “Offical Walt Disney World Hotel” AND in the Deluxe Category for only $94 a night for a standard room. Booking our trip only two weeks in advance and having limited options when it came to on-site hotels, we decided to take it! I didn’t have $1,400 a night for the Four Seasons & I detest the All-Star Disney Resorts. My only options besides B Resort if I wanted Disney transportation. Say all you want about me, the All-Star resorts just aren’t bougie enough for me, plus I refuse to stay in one since that’s where all the large groups stay lol.... don’t do it to yourself if you value your sleep.
Honestly, the fact that B Resort was one of the only properties left had me a tad bit concerned. I just kept telling myself nothing can be worse than staying at an All-Star with all the super loud high school groups. Then the day came. We showed up to B Resort and I was floored!!!!
B Resort & Spa
I couldn’t believe it!!! The resort was actually GORGEOUS for the price!!! Bougie on a budget!!! My favorite types of places. The hotel was not only insta-worthy, but totally glam. The only reason I feel B Resort was one of the few properties left when it came time for me to book our trip is the fact no one has any idea what this place is!!!! We know all the Disney theme hotels. We know what the Hilton & Westin are at Disney Springs, but who has ever heard of B Resort? Not I and I lived in Orlando for years! So I’m taking it upon myself to spread the word!
The B Resort & Spa has a total modern, Miami vibe!! Super chic. Marble everywhere which made me feel super clean while roaming the premises. They even have an official Disney Store where you can buy not only merchandise, but theme park tickets so you can skip those ridiculously long lines at the theme parks. Hungry? They have a sit down restaurant and a mini grocery story with coffee, ice cream, room snacks, drinks, beer and wine! Just expect to pay an inflated price for those items ;-)
Valet & Bell Service
That’s right!!!! Don’t feel like parking your own car or carrying your own luggage? There is help for that! While I will admit, I’m not usually not THAT person, I did have assistance this time with my luggage. Traveling with my child alone & having two suitcases, groceries, personal carry on items etc, very handy and made me feel like I was staying at the Ritz! We didn’t drive, so I have zero clue how great the valet service really is, but it’s nice to know the service is there if you are too lazy to park your own car in the parking lot which is literally two steps away.
One of my favorite hotel amenities that I’m sad to report I did not take advantage of this trip! Spas are my favorite, so when hubby is with us, you best believe I’m taking full advantage. I am also obsessed with Aveda products. Mainly because that was the “fancy” brand when I was younger and I tend to live in the past when it comes to brands... so I was pretty stoked when I realized the spa was an Aveda Exclusive!!! I will definitely be taking full advantage our next trip!
Tons of resorts have these, but this one was actually clean! My biggest pet peeve with any type of kids play areas is cleanliness. I’m not sure if it’s due to awesome hotel staff or kids not taking advantage of this fun spot, but it was as clean as a kids area could get! I also thought it was pretty sweet that the computers have gaming systems attached. Perfect for older kids who think they are too cool for a pool day with the fam.
Pools are one of the most important things to me when it comes to hotels!!! While there isn’t a mini water park or anything fancy-smancy, the pool area was pretty glam! Total South Beach vibes with a pool bar and all!!!! Towels are also provided by the hotel! The pool got two thumbs up from me! Honestly, no splash pad or slides makes the pool a way more relaxing place! Plus kids have just as much fun swimming with or without the extras. I rather lounge in style with a yummy cocktail while my child swims than chase my kid around a splash pad at the pool any day lol...
B Resort & Spa does provide FREE Disney transportation! Honestly, you won’t even need the Disney Springs transportation since you are literally minutes away. It will take you longer to wait for the bus than it would to just walk! The transportation did however come in handy when visiting the parks! Easy to find and the bus shows up like clockwork. Always there when it says it will be. Only downside, it’s a shared bus with other Disney Resorts, so you will get the scenic route. It’s included with your room, so it is what it is! Take advantage! Even if you have a vehicle, use the free transportation to avoid paying ridiculous parking fees! Worth taking the scenic route to save $20+ if you ask me!
Considering I freaking paid $94 a night, the room was gorgeous!! You can’t even get a room at our local Comfort Inn for these types of prices, so this room really was a steal. Very clean, beautiful marble bathroom. Central air and not that “fake” central air with the air unit sticking out of the wall. Mini refrigerator and even room service. I can also report that DoorDash will come right to your room if you want a mid night snack.
How Close To Disney Springs
I know, the question y’all have been waiting for. All those lights?!? That is Disney Springs! You can spot it all right from your hotel room! It is however a 5ish minute walk. You have to walk the length of the B Resort property and then the length of the Hilton next door before you reach the first Disney Springs entrance. A very easy walk that my daughter and I did several times a day. Not to shabby if you ask me!
