Disney Spring Area Hotels Walkway in Disney Springs (photo essay)

As people search for ways to cut down on Walt Disney World vacation expenses, various lodging options are being explored. If you’re vacationing at Walt Disney World, the cost of on-site hotels scares off many potential visitors. Some guests have chosen to stay at one of the hotels in the Flamingo Crossing area. Others get into the chaos of staying on US 192. Another solid option is to stay at one of the Disney Springs area hotels. These hotels reside near Disney Springs. As a result, guests staying here can enjoy a pleasant ride to Disney Springs. I have hiked this path several times from various hotels in the Disney Springs area.

Disney Springs area hotels include Hilton, Wyndham, DoubleTree, Holiday Inn, The B Resort and a new Drury Inn opening this year. All of these hotels are within reasonable walking distance of Disney Springs. On a recent trip, I did this out and back walk four times.

Let me take you on a photography tour. For the record, this walk took me 11 minutes from the lobby of the B Resort and Spa to Earl of Sandwich in Disney Springs. This time included the security clearance process at Disney Springs.

You then walk towards Disney Springs to a traffic light to cross the road

After that, you will cross Hotel Plaza Blvd on the other side of the road.

You follow the sidewalk past the Wyndham hotels

Continue until you reach the intersection with a Disney Springs sign.

Go around the corner to take the elevator or stairs to the bridge to cross Disney Springs.

You will see a bridge with a sign to cross over to Disney Springs

There are then stairs or an elevator to take you to the main entrance to Disney Spring on the east side of the resort.

You will then go through security. Shortly after, you’ll find yourself at Disney Spring with Earl of Sandwich not far away.

The ability to walk from your resort hotel to Disney Springs adds value to these “off-site” resorts. You can easily get to Disney Spring faster than bus service from many Walt Disney World hotels. Additionally, Disney Springs Hotels offer scheduled shuttle service to each Walt Disney World theme park. Also, if you want to go to a Walt Disney World hotel to dine or explore, you can take a shuttle or boat from Disney Springs, depending on the hotel. We would all love to stay in a Walt Disney World “Deluxe” monorail hotel onsite. However, these Disney Springs area hotels offer solid value to help stretch your budget. Being able to walk from your Disney Springs hotel will make your stay easier while saving you money.
