Impeccably designed-we were impressed the moment we entered the lobby doors of the Wyndham Lake Buena Vista .  Not only will you will immediately notice the upscale décor and lake house theme, but also quickly delight in the Disney ambiance that fills this place.  After all, you are in the world’s most magical place on earth!   With a stunning lobby filled with modern furnishings,  you will want to just sit here and relax with a cup of Joffrey’s coffee from the 24-hour Sundial Cafe or your favorite drink from the Eclipse Lounge.  Complimentary water and lemonade are also available in the lobby at different times throughout the day.

The hotel is geared towards both families and couples, and you will appreciate how Wyndham Lake Buena Vista  has added in the extra details to make this feel like an escape from your busy life.  With two lodging options, this resort provides clean and comfortable rooms.  We were given a room with two double beds.  It was spacious and well furnished.  The modern furnishings and views of Disney Springs make for a room you will be comfortable in.   After all, with a desk and adjustable chair,  blackout curtains,  flat screen HDTV with cable, in-room coffee maker, and Blue Harmony toiletries, you won’t have to wander far from your room if you are looking to relax.  The plush robes are an added bonus for lounging around like a celebrity.  One thing you are not going to want to miss is the view of Disney Springs and beyond at dark.  We enjoyed watching the fireworks from several Disney area theme parks.

All guests receive complimentary WiFi, and a business center provides guests with complimentary computer and printer services.

The Oasis Aquatic Pool area is truly an oasis at this Wyndham resort.  Take a break from the heat and parks and enjoy the day or a few hours at the pool.  It is perfect for both children and adults.
