If you’re looking for a nice quiet place to stay near Disney World property, then I have found the place for you. SpringHill Suites by Marriott is located just west of Disney World property off of Highway 429. It is about 1 mile from the Disney Property signs on Western Way which leads you right past Coronado Springs. Although it is off property, they do offer transportation to and from the Ticket & Transportation Center located near Magic Kingdom. This service is offered for $5.00 per person/per day and children 3 and under are free.
Also remember that because they are off property you can only book Fast Passes choices 30 days in advance and you won’t receive a magic band. However, for many who are looking to do more activities other than just Disney, this might be the perfect place for you.
The bedroom that I was able to stay in was a suite and had 2 queen size beds and a double size pull out couch. It also had a little workspace nook if you needed to do some work and plenty of space to move around in. The bathroom was good size and had a walk in shower. The pool looked absolutely amazing and I wish I would have had time to go for a swim. The hot tub also looked very relaxing. The did offer a breakfast that had many selections and wasn’t just cereal and bagels. They had fresh eggs, bagels, muffins, cereals, fresh fruit, sausage, yogurt and yes you could also make Mickey Mouse shaped waffles in two sizes – miniature and regular size. The room was clean and I felt safe being at this location. There really isn’t anything else around it so it is very quiet (except the highway noise).
I love the Disney on property locations but if you are looking for somewhere off Disney property to stay, I would recommend this location. The complete address is SpringHill Suites Orlando at Flamingo Crossings/Western Entrance. 13279 Flamingo Crossings Blvd, Winter Garden, FL 34787. Phone is 407-507-1200. I hope you enjoy this location as much as I did.
