Hilton Disney Hotel Recommendation

Never been to Disneyworld and would like to take the family there this year, sometime between June and early August. Any recommendations on Hilton Hotels to stay at that maybe include perks, fast pass, discounted tickets, transportation etc. (I'm currently a Diamond member).

There are loads of options. See the Orlando thread for lots of good information. The Waldorf and Bonnet Creek are my choices.

I recommend the Hilton Anaheim. Next door to Disneyland. Disney world is overrated.

Pick one of the hotels that has the Disney perk of 60day FP:-
hilton bonnet creek and Waldorf, or one of the 3 along hotel blvd - Hilton LBV, Hilton Buena vista palace, or the doubletree Disney springs

off these, the bonnet creek are newest and are nice modern hotels with shared facilities. One of these would probably be my choice.

the Hilton LBV or BVP are older but both walking distance to Disney springs.

the doubletree is likely to be cheapest for points or cash

watch out for resort fees and parking fees, both are pretty steep

This is false. Disney World is far better, unless you go during peak season where you stand in line for 3 hours for each ride

There is also so much more to do in Orlando/surrounding area for the under 16 demographic: Universal, Seaworld, Legoland, Busch Gardens, hell even Gatorland .

When is off peak? I have experienced(?) the rat factory more than a dozen times over 25+ years. Chaperoning small groups with my children and their children and larger school and sports groups and I have yet to experience sub 2 hr lines or great weather at the same time. I find the outdoor experience in Orlando to be the least attractive of all the Disney parks. Comparing Anaheim, Orlando, Tokyo, Hong Kong, and Paris I much prefer to total experience in Anaheim. But YMMV.

Maybe I've just had good luck in October when we've gone (will again this year) with not have the ridiculous lines and we've had good weather the entire week. Last year only one storm which lasted less than an hour. As far as the international locations, I can't speak on those since I've yet to be able to make it to those.

I check into the Doubletree Disney Springs next week so Iíll let you know. I also suggest booking one that is annotated with Disney Perks so you can get your fast passes 60days out.
