Lake Buena Vista Holidays

Get Inspiration

Let’s go to Lake Buena Vista

You'll find Lake Buena Vista just under a 30-minute drive from Orlando International Airport. The home of Walt Disney World® Resort and only a short drive to Universal Orlando Resort™ and LEGOLAND® Florida Resort, this is the ideal base from which to experience all the thrills and spills of Orlando’s world-famous theme parks.

Although trips to this part of the USA are most popular with families, Lake Buena Vista holidays have something to offer everyone. A visit to Magic Kingdom and watching the end of the day extravaganza is a truly magical experience for both adults and children alike – coming face to face with some of your childhood heroes makes kids of us all. For thrill-seekers, there’s the obvious rollercoasters at Orlando’s theme parks and water parks. But for something a little different, why not try an airboat adventure across the Everglades or a spin on the world’s tallest swing ride, the Orlando Star Flyer?

Away from the theme parks, Lake Buena Vista holidays serve up so much more. You can splash the cash in designer outlets and enjoy one-of-a-kind dining experiences. Go kayaking in search of a wild manatee or, if you simply want to relax, why not unwind with a cocktail by your hotel’s pool? However you want to spend your time, you’ll never be bored.

Want to see more of the Sunshine State? Consider extending your Lake Buena Vista holiday with a stay on the stunning Florida coast, where you can chill out after an action-packed few days. From the balmy beaches of Miami to the sun-soaked Gulf Coast, you’ll be spoiled for choice. Speak to our travel specialists to find out more.

Things to do

A stay in Lake Buena Vista means you are only minutes from Orlando’s theme parks, with Walt Disney World® Resort in one direction and Universal Orlando Resort™ in the other. The entertainment in Lake Buena Vista doesn't begin and end at Disney's gates, though. Why not head off to historic Silver Springs, and kayak through the beautiful scenery? You’ll be able to spot monkeys hanging out in trees and manatees swimming beneath you. Or, if you love a friendly competition, enjoy some championship adventure golf and then cool off at one of the many waterparks nearby.

Lake Buena Vista is filled with restaurants offering food from around the world. Enjoy seafood in a boat at The Boathouse in Disney Springs, or sip Caribbean cocktails at the famous Bahama Breeze. Lake Buena Vista holidays have something for everyone, so whether you’re planning an active summer holiday, a romantic rendezvous or a leisurely winter sun getaway, you’ll find plenty of attractions in Lake Buena Vista to keep you busy.

Lake Buena Vista day trips

Lake Buena Vista is the perfect spot to base yourself, as you can easily explore everything the Sunshine State has to offer.

If you have space enthusiasts in your group, then the Kennedy Space Center is a must. You can get up close and personal with the iconic Space Shuttle Atlantis, touch a piece of the moon and – if you’re super lucky and are there on launch day – you’ll get to see the NASA team getting everything ready.

History buffs could journey back in time and explore historical Saint Augustine, the oldest town in the US. Wander through the cobblestone streets and discover quaint cafés, unique shops and famous landmarks, like the Lightner Museum, Fort Matanzas and the oldest masonry fort, Casillo de San Marcos.

Or, if you fancy a relaxing day trip after a day at the theme parks, make tracks for Clearwater. Holding the world record for the most consecutive days of sunshine in a single year, this really is the ideal spot for a laidback beach day.

Shopping in Lake Buena Vista

A few minutes down the road, you’ll find even more shopping opportunities at the Lake Buena Vista Factory Stores. And, best of all, there’s space for luggage storage – so you can easily fill up that extra suitcase for your journey home.

Best time to visit Lake Buena Vista

Lake Buena Vista holidays can be enjoyed all year round, as the sun is always shining – even in winter, temperatures remain in the twenties. The spring months are some of the best months to visit, though, as you can enjoy lovely warm weather and long sunny days with little rain. It’s the perfect time to enjoy Orlando’s top attractions and the nearby beaches.

July and August are the hottest months of the year, with temperatures regularly reaching 34°C. The humidity is high and rainfall is heavier – so, if you do brave the summer months, you might want to pick up a waterproof poncho at one of the theme parks. That said, the rain showers tend to be very heavy heavy and short, and everything dries almost immediately. Half an hour later, it’s like nothing ever happened.
