Visiting the all-new Drury Plaza Hotel in Disney Springs


Visiting the all-new Drury Plaza Hotel in Disney Springs. Once upon a time, back in 1972, there were only 3 hotels located at Walt Disney World. The Contemporary, The Polynesian, and a Travel Lodge, which was located at a dead-end road, now called Hotel Plaza BLVD.

In 2000, the hotel became Best Western Lake Buena Vista Resort Hotel, then in 2017 Drury bought the property, and when the pandemic hit the hotel was closed and renamed Drury Plaza Hotel Orlando Lake Buena Vista, and a new tower was built.

Fast Forward to 2023, and we got a chance to take a room tour, sample the breakfast, and learn all about the newly operating resort here at Disney Springs. Let’s take a look at some of the highlights.

Before we get into the details, I will say this, when we posted about Drury Plaza Hotel Orlando Lake Buena Vista on our Instagram account the reviews and feedback were the best and most positive feedback we have received for an Official Walt Disney World® Hotel that was not run by Disney themselves.

Imagine a hotel that not only delivers the magic of Disney but enhances it… and without breaking the bank. A place where, every morning, a free, hot breakfast prepares you for an unforgettable Disney day. A place where hot, dinnertime snacks and cold beverages await your return to comfortably refresh and ready you for what tomorrow may bring. Imagine no more…
