March 15, 1987 – Pickett Suite Resort Opens in Walt Disney World

“Start the day with the bountiful breakfast buffet, then catch a complimentary shuttle to the Disney park of your choice!”

On March 15, 1987, the Pickett Suite Resort opened in Walt Disney World’s Lake Buena Vista area. Although not owned by Disney, it was one of several affordable options open in the area, such as the Doubletree Guest Suite Resort and the Courtyard by Marriott. The name was eventually changed from Pickett Suite to the Guest Quarters Suite Resort. The hotel has since been rebranded as the DoubleTree Suites by Hilton Orlando, having been bought by Hilton Hotels, and is still in operation near Disney Springs.
