Photo Tour of a Garden Room at the Wyndham Garden Lake Buena Vista, Disney Springs Resort Area



By Dave Shute

For the first page of this review of the Wyndham/Wyndham Garden, see this.

PHOTO TOUR OF A WYNDHAM GARDEN ROOM

The Wyndham Lake Buena Vista in the Disney Springs Resort Area has two different accommodations buildings, which are marketed, kinda, as two different hotels.  (Both share the same check in desk and all other amenities.)

  • The 232 “Wyndham” rooms are two queen (or one king) offerings accessed from interior corridors in the main mid-rise tower.
  • The 394 “Wyndham Garden” offerings–about two thirds of the total– are two full bed (or one king) rooms in five story buildings, with rooms accessed from exterior corridors.

I have a photo tour of a tower room at the Wyndham here. The photo tour on this page is of a Wyndham Garden room.

Wyndham Garden rooms are in many ways comparable to Disney’s value resort rooms, with exterior access, no balconies, full beds, and a single sink in the bath. However, their bedroom space is appreciably larger than that in Disney’s value resort rooms, and they have some other amenities uncommon in the value resorts, so they end up being more livable than those.

One side of the Wyndham Garden room has a table and two chairs, and two full-sized beds.

The bed side from the back of the room.

There’s a bedside table between the beds with an open cubby below…

…and a storage drawer above.

The other side of the room is dominated by a dresser and a mini fridge.

The TV side from the back of the room.

The dresser has a small-ish 38 inch TV above.

Its four large drawers provide plenty of storage for the four people this room will hold.

Above the drawers on one side is a cubby, and on the other is this safe. I did not measure it, but my book is 6″ by 9″, so you can tell that the safe is quite large.

Next to the dresser is an enclosure with a mini fridge inside…

…and a coffee service above.

The divided bath is at the back of the room, and is separated from the rest of the space by a sliding door.

The first part of the bath has a sink…

…with these toiletries.

Next to the sink is a closet.

Inside the closet.

In their own room on the other side of the sink you’ll find the tub/shower and toilet.

These Wyndham Garden rooms are not as nice as the Wyndham’s tower rooms, and some will miss the queens in those rooms in particular.  But unlike those rooms, they have a divided bath, making them more family friendly, and they can be quite a bit less expensive.

At ~290 square feet, these rooms are larger than Disney’s value resorts, but smaller than its moderate resorts.  Bath sizes are comparable to those at the values, and the living area is about 30 square feet larger than the values, and 15 square feet smaller than the moderates.

All in–excepting the full beds, which are being replaced with queens at the values (Pop Century is done, and All-Star Movies about half done)–these rooms are more livable than Disney’s value resorts, and a step below its moderates.
