The Waldorf Astoria is one of Orlando’s luxury hotels. I’ve been to this hotel plenty of times but never stayed here before, I knew to expect an elegant setting and a service that is as close to perfect as it gets but I always seen the Waldorf Astoria as a hotel for adults, I never would’ve guessed that this hotel is GREAT for kids as well! 
O Waldorf Astoria é um dos melhores hotéis da cidade. Apesar de eu nunca ter me hospedado no Waldorf Astoria eu já visitei o hotel diversas vezes e sabia que o hotel é extremamente elegante e o serviço chega próximo a perfeição. O que eu não tinha a menor idéia é que esse hotel é ótimo para crianças, eu sempre achei o Waldorf um hotel mais para adultos mas eu estava enganada.
The Waldorf Astoria invited my family to spend three days and two nights at the hotel, but opinions on this post are my own.
O Waldorf Astoria nos convidou para passar três dias e duas noites no hotel mas as impressões relatadas nesse post são minhas.

WHERE

LOCALIZAÇÃO

It is located on Disney property in an area called Bonnet Creek; this area is only about 10 minutes from Disney Springs.

Address: 14200 Bonnet Creek Ln

                 Orlando, FL 32821 

Ele fica em Bonnet Creek, uma área que com três hotéis que fica dentro do complexo Disney, próximo ao Disney Springs.

Endereço: 14200 Bonnet Creek Ln

Orlando, FL 32821

We had the BEST first impression of the Waldorf Astoria! While I was doing our check-in the boys found a candy bar and an ice cream bar right in the middle of the lobby and the best part is it was completely free! They told me this only happens on Fridays so we arrived on the perfect day. 

It wasn’t only the kids that the Waldorf Astoria was pampering, they also had complimentary champagne for us, but it might’ve been prosecco. To be honest, we were so excited that I didn’t and many questions.

Nós tivemos a melhor primeira impressão do Waldorf Astoria! Enquanto eu fazia o check-in os meninos acharam um bar de balas e sorvetes bem no meio do lobby e o melhor de tudo, sem nenhum custo! Parece que a gente chegou no dia certo porque isso acontece somente sexta-feira.

Não era só as crianças que o hotel estava mimando. Eles também estavam distribuindo champagne para os adultos, okay talvez fosse prosecco, para falar a verdade eu fiquei tão contente que não fiz muitas perguntas.

ROOMS

 QUARTOS

We stayed at two connected rooms .The first one was a suite with a king size bed and a spacious living space which included a dining table and a kitchen. The second room was a standard bedroom with two queen beds.

Both rooms had a huge bathroom and in the suite there was also a patio perfect to watch Disney firework.

Neitherless to say we didn’t fight over space here.

Nós ficamos hospedados em dois quartos conectados. O primeiro quarto era uma suíte com quarto king size e uma sala como copa. O segundo quarto foi um quarto stardard para os meninos.

Ambos os quartos tinham um banheiro enorme e na suíte também tinha um terraço perfeito para ver os fogos da Disney.

Acho que não preciso falar que ninguém brigou por espaço aqui

POOL

PISCINA

Waldorf Astoria has two pools side by side. Their pool is one of those for you to relax, it doesn’t have a lazy river or a water slide so, I was a bit concern that the boys would think there was not much to do there  but they had the best time!

Throught the day the had several games and activities going on and you can also rent floats from all shapes and sizes which entertained the kids the whole day. 

O Waldorf possui duas piscinas uma do lado a outra. A piscina deles é uma dessa para relaxar, não tem tobogã ou lazy river, então eu imaginei que os meninos iam achar que não tiha muito o que fazer por lá mas eles adoraram!

Durante o dia os monitores fizeram diversas brincadeiras e você pode alugarm bóias dos mais variados tamanhos e formatos o que garantiu a diversão.

If you can, rent one of their cabanas by the pool. It cames equiped with lounge chairs, couch, tv, fan and fridge stocked with sodas and water.

Price varies a bit depending on the time of the year, starting at $350.

No pool day would be complete without a refresing drink. The pool bar Aquamarine has some really good ones, including virgin options. Try their prosecco popsicle, you won’t regret.

Para quem puder, eu recomendo alugar uma das cabanas na piscina. Ela vem equipada espreguiçadeira, sofá, televisão e geladeira abastecida com refrigerante e água.

O custo depende dá época do ano mas espere gastar $350 mas esse custo pode ser mais alto nos feriados. Se você está passando o dia na piscina do Waldorf peça um prosecco popsicle drink no bar Aquamarine! Você não vai se arrepender.

DINING

RESTAURANTES

If you are a foodie like me, you won’t be disappointed.
Se você assim como eu é um foodie, o Waldorf Astoria não desaponta.
LA LUCE

This Italian restaurant is one of my favorites in town! It’s located at the Hilton Bonnet Creek; both hotels are connected it takes less than 10 minutes to get from one lobby to the other.

La Luce is a restaurant that I try to go on a regular basis. If you follow me on Instagram, you probably caught me raving about fried olives, that’s the place to get them!

This time, we came here because they have a pizza making experience for the kids, called JR Pizza Chef Experience where kids can go into the kitchen with one of the chefs and make their our pie from scratch.

This activity costs $25 and includes a pizza with toppings, side of fries, a soft drink, and a chef certificate.

The boys LOVED this! It was one of the things they talked about the most during our stay.

When it comes to La Luce, I am a person of habits, so I order all my favorite dishes!

LA LUCE

Esse é um restaurante italiano que fica no hotel vizinho, o Hilton Bonnet Creek. Os dois hotéis são conectados e você não demora nem 10 minutos para caminhas de uma para o outro.

O La Luce é um restaurante que eu já frequentava e um dos meus favoritos na cidade. Se vocês me seguem no Instagram já devem ter ouvido eu falar das azeitonas fritas do La Luce.

Dessa vez a gente veio no restaurante testar uma experiêcia nova onde as crianças entram na cozinha com um dos chefes e preparam sua própria pizza!

Essa experiência chama JR Pizza Chef Experience, custa $25 e inclui a atividade, uma pizza, batata frita, refrigerante e um certificado de participação.

Os meninos amaram a experiência! Foi uma das coisas que eles mais gostaram de fazer durante a nossa estadia.

Eu sou uma pessoa de hábito no La Luce e geralmente eu peço as mesmas coisas e dessa vez não foi diferente!

OSCAR’S

This restaurant only serves breakfast and you can either order a la carte or buffet.

I highly doubt you will be able to resist their buffet. Oscar’s serves an amazing continental breakfast which reminded me of the ones served in Brazil (we are breakfast people). There were eggs and bacon but you will also find several juice options and even a crepe station.

Click here to check their a la carte options.

OSCAR’S

O Oscar’s serve apenas café da manhã. Você tem duas opções: buffet ou a la carte.

Eu duvido que você consiga resistir ao buffet do Oscar’s! Eles tem um café da manhã continetal que lembra muito o nosso barsileiro! Sucos variados, frutas, omeletes e até crepes.

Agora se você quiser tentar resistir, clique aqui para ver o cardápio do Oscar’s.

PEACOCK ALLEY

This bar is located on the lobby and serves handcrafted cocktails! We tried the Peacock Egg made with lavender Syrup, Blue Curacao, Fresh Lemonade and Bombay Sapphire.

This is a show stopper and not only pretty, but this drink is also delicious.

PEACOCK ALLEY

Esse bar localizado no lobby do hotel serve cocktéis super criativos! Nós provamos o Peacok Egg que é o drink mais conhecido desse bar, ele é feito com lavanda, blue curacao, limonada fresca e Bombay Sapphire.

Esse drink não é só uma obra de arte mas também é ótimo!

BEST THING ABOUT STAYING AT WALDORF ASTORIA

MELHOR COISA DE SE HOSPEDAR NO WALDORF ASTORIA

Their service is exceptional, but the best thing about the Waldorf Astoria is that day rates don’t cost as much as you would think which is always a plus! 

Take a look at their rates, here

O serviço do hotel é excepcional mas o melhor do Waldorf é que o preço do quarto standard não é tão caro quanto você imagina olhando para o hotel! Essa foi uma ótima surpresa!
