“Discover what’s new at Hilton Orlando Buena Vista Palace.”
On March 3, 1983, the Buena Vista Palace hotel opened in Walt Disney World’s Lake Buena Vista. An official Walt Disney World Hotel, it is currently operated by the Hilton chain of resorts. On November 1, 1998, the resort became the Wyndham Palace Resort and Spa, but reverted back to its original name in mid-2005. Currently, the resort is walking distance from the Disney Springs shopping area, allowing guests to spend a night out dining and shopping, or to quickly catch a bus to any of the four Walt Disney World parks.
