The hotel

Of course there are some things every traveller demands, so this multi-faceted hotel delivers complimentary parking, WiFi, a free shuttle to the Disney parks that sit just a short drive away, and a fusion of fabulous dining options. You’ll find everything from a trendy 24-hour coffee house, to steakhouse, Italian, and classic American menus – in fact, there are a dozen bars and restaurants to keep you going on those days you fancy a break from the nearby theme parks.

The staff was great! Very hospitable. But my room was dirty, there was a stain on my sheet. A false eyelash on the floor. Was moved to a different room. That room had a slow drain in the sink. And a mini fridge that didnt cool. Very disappointing

Being Hilton Honors Members we were treated like royalty and the food and service we received during our stay was above expectations. Would highly recommend for another couple looking for a relaxing getaway.

Check-in was excellent, had a complementary bottle of champagne for our 25th wedding anniversary waiting in our room. We loved the pools, which we had a choice of a family pool at the Hilton or as we are swimmers, we enjoyed the large lap pool at the neighboring Waldorf, which is only a few minutes walk next to the Hilton. The room was fresh and up-to-date as well as the hotel grounds. Very pleasant and relaxing. We did request a newspaper, but it was never delivered, even though I did remind them we were not receiving the requested newspaper. If you are going to treat yourself to the buffet breakfast, sorry, but paying $30 per person is insane and the breakfast should be included with the room. The breakfast buffet was excellent with a good selection, yet the price was not acceptable by any standard if you have to pay $120 for four persons only for breakfast. I've traveled across the USA, Europe and Australia, and the breakfast buffet is normally included in the hotel room cost at a reasonable cost ($15 - $20), so my mistake. The hotel should included a breakfast vouchers so you can spend your cash at the Magic Kingdom and not your holiday savings on breakfast at the hotel. Hope this helps in sorting out your breakfast expectations, otherwise, very good and relaxing stay. Read less

I experienced a unique hotel stay and service. The drinks at the bar were amazing. I was always happy to return to my room at night to the Jazz music channel on the TV, bed turned down, ice bucket filled, and the weather forecast and breakfast menu presented on the side table. I was beyond impressed with this hotel!

The Waldorf exceeded our expectations in every way. From the pristine, well-appointed rooms, to friendly, attentive staff, to excellent housekeeping, to the gorgeous pool and property, we loved every part of our stay here. Oscar’s breakfast buffet is excellent and room service was prompt and tasty. There are shuttles to every Disney park throughout the day, and an Uber was never more than a few minutes wait for other excursions. The hotel is essentially on Disney property, and is a much better deal for your money. We will be back! Read less
