Drury Plaza Hotel Orlando is Newest Resort in Disney Springs Area

Visitors to Walt Disney World are often on the lookout for new accommodations with reasonable rates that still have access to all the world-famous Orlando resort has to offer. I am excited to share that the Drury Hotels Company has just opened the Drury Plaza Hotel Orlando within the Disney Springs Area, welcoming its first guests last year.

The project transformed the former Best Western Disney Springs hotel by adding a new tower, completely gutting and remodeling the old tower, and adding new dining, meeting space, and popular amenities.

As an official Walt Disney World Hotel, the property is located just half a mile from Disney Springs and offers free shuttle service to all four Walt Disney World Theme Parks. Early theme park entry, a desirable bonus, is also included.

Exceptional Amenities and a Prime Location

The Drury Plaza Hotel Orlando offers an unforgettable stay with its best-in-class amenities and a highly sought-after location within walking distance of Disney Springs. What’s more, there is no resort fee, making it an affordable option for travelers looking to enjoy the magic of Walt Disney World.

Double Queens rooms

The hotel has 604 rooms, with 78 two-room suites perfect for families of up to six guests. The rooms are equipped with 55” smart flat-screen television, mini-refrigerator, microwave, alarm clock with Bluetooth, and charging station. Plus there is a desk for working and an in-room safe. Important if you bring electronics with you on your vacation or work trip.

Walt Disney World Annual Passholders, be sure to check the website or with your travel agent for special deals. Right now APs can save 15% off the Best Flexible Rate. Crucially this allows you to access to park reservations for your length of stay outside of the regular passholder allotment. Discounts are available to other groups as well including seniors, Florida residents, and the military.

A Range of Services and Dining Options

As a guest at the Drury Plaza Hotel Orlando, you can enjoy a range of services and dining options. There is a daily complimentary breakfast, as well as Drury’s signature 5:30 Kickback with evening snacks and cold beverages.

The hotel offers Wi-Fi throughout the property, scenic views, poolside and lobby restaurants and bars, a Market Place with a premium selection of grab-and-go items including Pizza Hut and Starbucks, a 24-hour fitness facility, lobby business center, a resort-style saltwater pool with splash pad, and a game arcade.
