Sometimes all it takes to find a great deal on an Orlando hotel deal is venturing just outside Walt Disney World.
Courtyard by Marriott Orlando Lake Buena Vista in the Marriott Village is part of a three-hotel complex located just across I-4 from Disney Springs. Of course, staying off-site means you don’t get any of the Disney perks (like early theme park entry or bus transportation), but this is far from some fleabag motel. There were still multiple on-site dining options, a large pool area and the rooms were more spacious than what you’ll find on Disney property, and all at a price cheaper than Disney has offered in decades for lesser accommodations.
The one sticking point I have with this hotel is the somewhat awkward room layout. Check out more in my video room tour and review:
