The B Resort and Spa at Disney Springs
If you’re looking for an alternative to Disney property, but want to stay as close to the magic as possible, you may want to consider the B Resort and Spa at Disney Springs. Located just down the street from Disney Springs, Disney has designated the B as one of its Good Neighbor hotels, meaning it maintains certain standards required by Disney to keep that designation . . . and offer additional benefits (we’ll get to that in a second).
The B is definitely for those who enjoy a sleek, contemporary, yet comfortable resort. There are various arrangements available among the 394 rooms at the B that range from your traditional hotel room, to bunk beds, a walk out, or poolside suites. Their large, zero entry pool provides an option to cool down for the littlest travelers and to those young at heart. The 3 restaurants and 2 bars on site allow you to grab a bite to eat without traveling too far, and the kids zone arcade can help entertain your crew in a down moment or two. Additionally, the B offers a 24-hour fitness center, a 24-hour business center, as well as on-site car rentals through Enterprise.
When you stay at the B or other select Good Neighbor hotels, you are able to access some of the most coveted benefits of staying on property, including the ability to make your FastPass+ reservations at the 60 day mark for the length of your trip. For guests not staying at Disney Resorts or Good Neighbor Hotels, you can’t make FastPass+ reservations until 30 days out and must make them one day at a time. Guests staying at Good Neighbor Hotels are also able to utilize the Extra Magic Hours available to on-site guests. That said, the Disney transportation busses do not make stops at the B, but the hotel does offer complimentary transportation to and from all four parks and Disney Springs. It should be noted that the bus is shared with another resort or two in the area, so wait times vary and are often longer than those you would experience at a Disney Resort. If you need to grab last minute souvenirs before heading home, the B also houses an official Disney store just off of the lobby. And, if you’re a golfer, you can also take advantage of discount green fees for Walt Disney World golf courses.
Your partners at On the Road travel can help you book the B or any other Disney Good Neighbor Hotel in addition to the Walt Disney World properties. The B is an excellent option for those guests who expect to spend most of their days in the park and just need a place to rest their heads at night, and is definitely worth considering when looking for something just a little different.
