Hilton Bonnet Creek: The Hilton Bonnet Creek has long been on our list. This resort has been recommended to us due to its great location, both close to Disney but also tucked away, as well as great amenities.
Hilton has a timeshare location close to this property. This article is just focusing on their regular hotel property. If you are brand loyal or want to use points for a trip to Disney this may be a great bet for you. With a quick search, this property runs about 60,000-92,000 Hilton Honors points a night. This property is considered a “good neighbor” hotel. This means you can still book fast passes at the 60 day mark as well as enjoy extra magic hours.
The Hilton Bonnet Creek has a wonderful smelling lobby to begin. This is something I have been clued into at Disney Resorts but the lobby here smells like relaxation! As a side note if you love delicious Disney Lobby Scents check out Circa 1955 Candles. ( not an affiliate link.. just scents I love)
The best feature of the hotel is the pool. They have a glorious lazy river with lots of seating all around the pool. The Dj was playing tunes and the kids were splashing and playing. They even have a great little water slide.
We ate at the poolside restaurant, once on a trip to the Waldorf, and once this trip. The food is decent poolside food. It was open late and is kid-friendly. They have seats and firepits next to the pool. If your kids were a little older it would be the best spot to watch them float by on the lazy river. When you stay at this resort you are also able to use the hotel at the nearby Waldorf. It is a short walk away. This is the perfect place to spend arrival or departure day lounging by the pool. We noticed a sign for mermaid tail swim school while enjoying our lunch. The hotel offers great poolside activities.
Hilton Bonnet Creek: There are regular shuttles leaving for Disney Parks and Disney Springs. This hotel is as close to Disney property as you can get. We enjoyed this hotel immensely. There are other great dining options between the two properties that we did not have time to enjoy.
Do you prefer to stay on or off Disney property?
