If you are looking for a deluxe resort in the Walt Disney World® area, without the cost of a Disney deluxe resort, the B Resort & Spa at Disney Springs is the perfect location. There is so much more to the area then just theme parks and there is no better way to see what is offered then by staying in a non-Disney resort. Although the resort is located on Disney property, is not owned or operated by Disney. The resort is one of the seven Disney Springs Resort Area Hotels group that are all located on Disney property and within walking distance of Disney Springs.
From the minute you walk through the front doors you immediately feel welcome and know you will be staying in a resort that knows how to cater to guests. The bright lighting, stylish, colorful furnishings and decor, as well as the beautiful works by local artists hanging on the walls, all combine to create the look of an up-scale, yet comfortable place to stay.
Just B! B indulged, B pampered, B nourished, B active, B adventurous. The B Resort & Spa encourages their guests to Just B! B exactly what you want to B in style!
The resort offers 394 spacious guest rooms and suites starting around $100 per night. Frankly, it isn’t really possible to get a Disney Value Resort for that price any more! The location is ideal – directly across the street from Disney Springs (a five minute walk) – and the resort offers regular shuttle service to the Disney Parks (every 30 minutes starting an hour before park opening and ending 60 to 90 minutes after park closing). The resort is beautiful, clean and convenient. The rooms offered for families have bunk beds and some offer outside, patio cabana areas with direct access to the pool.
The B Resort & Spa offers amenities for families, business travelers or groups that include a spa, fitness center, business executive center and dining.
Located throughout the lobby of the resort are “Monscierge” screens that at the touch of an icon give you all of the information you need. You can also check-in for your airline or find dining reservations in area restaurants (just to name a few of the functions available).
B INDULGED at The Aveda Spa. The spa offers state of art amenities, wonderful and refreshing products and a long list of services, from long, relaxing massages to a quick touch up haircut. The staff is welcoming, pleasant and definitely make you feel special! The highlight of my visit to the spa was the new, state of the art, digital nail design printer. You can choose from a long list of designs or the spa will download your own design to print right on your nail. I choose the logo for this site and within 5 minutes it was downloaded and printed directly on my finger!
B ACTIVE in the fitness center! Open 24 hours a day the fitness center contains new, well maintained equipment. The resort also offers walking trails and tennis courts, as well as a beautiful, heated, zero-entry pool.
B PRODUCTIVE and B IN TOUCH – The B Resort offers free wi-fi throughout the resort, as well as an executive center for easy (free) printing. Through the lobby Monscierge screen you can even send a post card to family or friends!
B MAGICAL while staying in the heart of all that Walt Disney World® has to offer while still being able to get away from the hustle and bustle of the theme parks. Dine at some of Disney’s best restaurants right across the street at Disney Springs. Shop to your hearts content at the on-site Disney Store in the lobby or at the many different shops offered across the street.
B RESTFUL and B RELAXED in the private viewing movie room or library, both perfect spots to spend quiet time or family time. Both perfect spots for a rainy day, a restful and relaxed evening or a fun gathering place!
Enjoy this walk-thru of the resort highlighting different rooms, amenities and areas:
B NOURISHED at the American Kitchen Bar & Grill. The restaurant specializes in “comfort” food and offers breakfast, lunch and dinner menus. A 1951 vintage Flatbed Ford takes center stage as you enter the restaurant and houses the morning buffet or evening salad bar. The offerings are very tasty and reasonably priced and the American Kitchen Bar & Grill is a great spot to start your day with a hearty breakfast or end your day with a traditional meal or cocktail. The resort also offers a “grab & go” option, The Pick Up that has some of the best coffee I’ve had in the area and a large selection of pastries, cereals, drinks, pre-made sandwiches, ice cream and sundries. You can also arrange for The Pick Up to pack a picnic type lunch or snack basket to take with you.
Even though I can’t say enough about how wonderful this resort is, nothing is perfect. I did find one or two minor “cons” during my stay. I found the free wi-fi to be extremely slow and sporadic which made it slightly difficult and sometimes frustrating to get a little bit of work done. The wi-fi in the executive center is outstanding, however, in my room or in some of the common areas I found myself consistently disappointed in the wi-fi. Although the American Kitchen Bar & Grill offered great food and a great atmosphere, I was disappointed by the fact that such a beautiful resort does not offer a fine dining restaurant. There are many restaurants across the street in Disney Springs but sometimes its nice to have a fine dining location right in your resort. The fact that the only restaurant is also a bar can also be a little off-putting to families. While it is designed in such a way that the two areas are mostly separated, there is no getting around the fact that they are combined into one and depending on the size of any group at the bar, there is no ignoring their “fun” while at the salad bar Flatbed Ford in the center of the area.
With only those minor cons noted, I highly recommend this resort for families, singles, couples or groups. The resort is beautiful and the service outstanding. I know I’ll be heading back to stay at the B Resort & Spa!
