Our first trip to Disney, Orlando and we start looking for accommodation, with so much on offer choosing the right hotel can be a task.
After surfing the internet for a few hours we narrowed down to one of our trusted, familiar brands and without a doubt The Hilton Bonnet Creek was the perfect choice for our maiden Disney vacation.
Nestled in a 482 acre nature preserve the Hilton Bonnet Creek is a family friendly hotel with a great location. The hotel has a host of activities for all ages starting from the kids club for the little ones to a beautiful 18 hole golf course. It has recently become part of the Disney World Hotel chain which means it gives you all the facilities and perks of a Disney property with the massive price tag of one.
If this is your first trip like ours, it could be very confusing choosing your hotel. To start with choosing the right location then there are the extra perks that you get living at a Disney Property, the price, the quality of your accommodation and lastly are you getting value for your money.
If you are looking to spend more time in the Disney Parks then look no further than the Hilton Bonnet creek as it ticks most of the boxes.
The hotel /resort is located less than five miles from any of the Disney parks so a very good location. It is a 30 minutes’ drive from the Airport a 10 minutes’ drive to Disney Springs and the Premium Outlet Mall @ Vineyard. As it has become part of the Disney World Hotels chain it offers free transportation to the parks. The property also shares pools, restaurants, and shuttle services with the Waldorf-Astoria next door which is an additional perk as you can pay the lower prices of a Hilton property yet enjoy some of the benefits of the Waldorf property.
Some of the perks you receive when staying at Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek:

Being part of the Hilton Honors program always as you get a few extra perks that come with the Honors floors on some of the properties. Our room was located on the 14 floor and had some great views of the pool / golf course and Disney parks.
The room was comfortable and clean, with all the modern amenities you’d expect from a Hilton Property. We had requested for 2 queen beds and it also came with a 55 inch flat screen TV, a safe and plenty of storage space. Our room offered us great views of the various parks and we could enjoy the fireworks from the comfort of your own room. Spacious bathroom with premium toiletries, just what you would expect from 5 star hospitality. The property offers a total of 1009 guest rooms.

A fully equipped gym offering stunning views of the outdoor pool and includes the latest generation of cardio and strength training equipment.
The hotel has a very handy cafe and shop in the lobby area which is very helpful when you want to grab a quick snack or buy a few cookies or cereals on the go. It offers a microwave and toaster as well so very handy.
Disney Store – As with most Disney properties Hilton now has a in-house store for you share of souvenirs and Disney merchandise.
I must say that the Hilton Bonnet Creek stands tall and offers all you need for a perfect Disney holiday in Orlando.
Gives you all the extras that a Disney property provides at a much lower price tag and the service is exceptional.
The best part of the hotel was the friendly and helpful staff complimented by the quality of the rooms and the food and beverage.
A great stay overall and one I would highly recommend if you are visiting Disney for holiday or business.
