I had the pleasure last week to stay a few nights at the B Resort & Spa in Disney Springs. Having heard nothing but great things about the resort I was really looking forward to my visit.
Upon walking in your are greeted by a waterfall and one of a kind Proust chair. This chair goes for $14,000 so of course we all had to take selfies in it! (No worries it is encouraged to take photos in it)
The B Resort & Spa is tasteful both inside and out. The overall feel I get from staying here is a Miami/South Beach type vibe, they are from Fort Lauderdale so the theming fits. It is very trendy, clean, and bright.
In the lobby they even have their own B Resort Smell and I will tell you it smells wonderful. We hear they are trying to bottle the scent so you can take it home with you, and I for one would love a candle or air freshener with that smell in my car or home!
They have their own coffee bar and quick service restaurant called The Pickup. Here they serve the delicious Joffrey’s coffee and have all the little odds and ends you need for your hotel stay. We came down every morning for coffee before leaving for the parks.
In every room they have a Keurig so technically you don’t need to go down to the Pickup but the Disney Fashionista love our coffee so we would have a cup while we got ready, and then grab a cup while we waited on the bus to the parks.
The B Resort & Spa also has a great restaurant on the other side of the lobby called The American Kitchen Bar & Grill. They offer a filling all you can eat breakfast with all your favorites such as bacon, eggs, Mickey Waffles and more. I am on a diet and they even had healthier options such as Greek yogurt, fresh fruit and granola. I had to ask my server for Agave Nectar and was presently surprised they had it in the back. I did not have a chance to eat here for lunch or dinner but when we came back to our room around dinner time it smelled really good!
Before we head up to the rooms I have a few more areas to discuss. The B Resort & Spa also has an outdoor bar, a zero entry pool, a world famous Aveda Spa, and even a conference center. While we visited they had a wedding one night and a business convention another. The B Resort & Spa always is hopping, which I love!
While on tour of the Aveda Spa we saw this little gizmo. Only available at the B Resort & Spa at Disney Springs this little beauty will paint your nails with any design or even logo you upload. We were a little pressed for time so we didn’t have a chance to try it out but we were told a few other bloggers were able to get their logo done on their nails. The Disney Fashionista said forget Jamberry all you need is one of these!
Before heading upstairs we checked out the kids center. Kids can come down and chill while the parents are just outside at the pool or having a drink at the bar. All your favorite video game systems are available and they will even loan you an ipad. I am a little jealous as there is no adult play area or is there???
We stayed in a Junior Suite which had a pull out couch in one room and then a big king sized bed in another. We toured a regular double queen room as well. Both rooms are spacious, clean, and tastefully decorated. The beds were super comfortable, the flat screen tv’s were perfect for the room size, and finally the shower we’re very cool. While there was no Disney in the room I was perfectly fine with that. When you go to the parks as much as we do when I come back to the room I just want to crash in a comfortable bed, turn up the AC and just relax. This place is perfect for that.
While we we’re at the B Resort & Spa we got a sneak peek at the all new Magical Moments Movie Theater room. When it opens this will be a great place to relax on your first night at the resort and watch a Disney Movie. It is expected to open in the next few months so stay tuned for more details.
I would say one of the coolest features (other than the outdoor lighting) at the B Resort & Spa was in the lobby, it’s called the Monscierge. Without having to wait in line to talk to someone, you can look up restaurants in the area, check the weather, check in for flights, and much more. Since the tour took place on our departure day I was able to check out the weather back home and check in for our flight. This is genius!
We loved staying at the B Resort & Spa, it is so close to Disney Springs, was super clean, and had all the extras we could have wanted in a hotel. Many people think if you stay at a Disney Springs Resort Area Hotel that you have a hard time getting to the parks, this could not be further from the truth. They all share a bus that goes to the parks and shows up pretty much at the top and bottom of every hour.
My only complaint is that the buses share parks. As you can see above, this bus went to Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom. I hope someday they expand the bus line to include 1 bus per park but for now it just extends your travel time by about 15 mins. Not a huge deal.
If you stay at any of the Disney Springs Resort Area Hotels remember there is no Disney’s Magical Express so you will want to do a towncar or do what we do and that is get a Mears Shuttle. It costs around $37 for a round trip ticket from MCO to any Disney Springs Resort Area Hotel. Many times you can find discounts online but really with the nightly savings on the room it’s not a huge deal.
Overall the B Resort & Spa is probably the nicest Disney Springs Resort Area Hotel we have stayed at. Everyone there was super friendly, helpful, and you can tell they try to make your stay B Magical! We we’re given a room for free while we were at Disney World for our Disney Wedding planning but I would totally stay here again without hesitation.
If you have any questions about the resort please let me know, I hope this review will help you decide if the B Resort & Spa is where you want to stay when visiting Walt Disney World!
