Hi everyone! One of the best things about living in Orlando is that there is no better place to staycation. I recently stayed at the Hilton Bonnet Creek Resort, which is a Disney Springs hotel that is noteworthy.

Here are five reasons why the Hilton Bonnet Creek Resort is an excellent choice.

* Thank you, Hilton Bonnet Creek, for hosting my family. Although my visit was sponsored, this post reflects my opinions and experiences.

Hilton Bonnet Creek Resort

1 – DISNEY SPRINGS HOTEL WITHOUT DISNEY PRICE TAG

Many people don’t realize that there are hotels inside the Walt Disney World that don’t belong to Disney. You can have the same benefits of staying at a Disney Resort without paying a Disney price. 

The Hilton Bonnet Creek is a Disney Springs Hotel, located five minutes from Disney’s shopping and restaurants complex. 

I enjoyed my stay to book last-minute park reservation to the Animal Kingdom. I was able to ride Flight of Passage twice within the first hour. 

When it comes to price, do quick research, and you will find out the Hilton Bonnet Creek is one of the best deals for your Disney vacation. It is a luxurious resort with a lazy river and one of Orlando’s best restaurants.

2 – LA LUCE

La Luce is Hilton Bonnet Creek’s signature restaurant and my favorite Italian restaurant in town. It currently holds the number two spot on TripAdvisor’s list of best restaurants in Orlando.

This Italian restaurant is worth a visit even if you are NOT staying at the Hilton Bonnet Creek Resort. It is the restaurant I recommend to my friends visiting Orlando. It is that good!

If you ever dine at La Luce, try their fried olives antipasto, the cauliflower salad, the pizza, and the risotto. You got the idea, there is no okay food at La Luce. Everything is delicious, which is the number one reason I keep coming back to Hilton Bonnet Creek Resort.

3 – POOL CABANA

When it comes to Orlando Hotels with a lazy river, the Hilton Bonnet Creek Resort delivers! It has one of the most fun pools in town. You will find not only the lazy river but also hot tubes and a slide; it is one of those pools that are fun for the entire family.

 My favorite way to spend the day at the Hilton Bonnet Creek resort is to book a cabana, it is such a treat and perfect way to relax. The Hilton pool cabana accommodates up to 8 guests. It comes with everything for you to enjoy your day: snack basket, fridge with beverages, locker, and charging station.  

You don’t need to be a resort guest to book a pool cabana for the day, so you can make a vacation, staycation, or a daycation.

4 – RESORT BENEFITS

When you stay at Hilton Bonnet Creek Resort, you have access to Walt Disney World Resort benefits! 

You can link your reservation to the My Disney Experience app, make reservations just like guests who stay in one of WDW hotels, Hilton Bonnet Creek guests have early access to FastPass distribution, Extra Magic Hours, and complimentary transportation.

During the low capacity reopening, Disney suspended some benefits (FastPass and Extra Magic Hours).

5 – HILTON CLEAN STAY

Enjoying my time while keeping my family safe is my number one priority, and I am being VERY picky choosing companies I partner with for my blog.  

The Hilton has a program called Hilton Clean Stay, which you will notice right away when you book a stay in any of the brand’s properties.  

Face coverings are mandatory in public spaces, there are several hand disinfecting stations installed throughout the hotel, I believe I counted six on the lobby.  

In the pool area, chairs are spaced and you can easily know which chair to pick thanks to little flags installed on each one of them. If the flag is up, the chair was disinfected and is ready, if the flag is down, the chair is either busy or is waiting to be clean.  

Mask are not mandatory by the pool, but most guests wore them to walk in and out of the pool area.  

Sealed Rooms

The biggest and most noticeable change is the fact that your hotel room will come sealed! It is hard to explain what I mean so I included a video for you guys. 

The rooms at the Hilton Bonnet Creek Resort were just renovated, and they are very spacious. Make sure to request a room with a view, it is worth it! From my room I could see the pool, golf course, and two WDW theme parks (Epcot and Hollywood Studios), which means that once Disney brings back their nightly fireworks, you will be able to see them every night from the comfort of your room.
