Recently I have had to look at different accommodations when considering a trip to Walt Disney World. That lead me on a quest to explore some “adjacent” resorts and properties and I thought I would write about one of them that stood out to me. This may just give you some information to explore something different.
The B Resort and Spa
The B Resort and Spa blew me away. I did not expect to find such a gem, like I can’t stop thinking about it and all the “extra’s” it offers. This B Resort is very proud of it’s it’s heritage and unique brand. There are only 5 “B Resorts” in the United States and each one has it’s own personality. Interesting piece of trivia, the word “Be” is the third most used word in the English language.
You will know you arrived by the welcome mat that awaits you.
A very clean, open, and inviting lobby is your first impression that this resort is different than what is typically found at this price point. The signature chair that is found at all “B Resorts” sits directly across from the water wall, begging for your first of many “selfies” on the property.
The rooms here are mainly classified as:
- Chic Room- Your Standard well appointed room
- Captivating Room – A Chic room located in the Tower building on a mid level floor.
- Stunning Room- A Chic room on a top level floor in the tower building
- B-Enhanced room – A Chic Room that also has an attached parlor, in case you need a little extra room to unwind in.
There are few other room categories that you will find, but these are the main ones.
Another room type the they have is a Captivating Pool Side. These rooms have a gate that leads directly out to the pool with it’s private courtyard. If you are looking for easy access to the pool, this is it!
The pool itself is not a featured filled pool complex that other resorts have. It does not have a life guard and I would not recommend it if you have young children as there is no splash zone. There is a zero entry at one end with a couple of bubblers that would prove entertainment for young children. But if your children are over the age of 10 and love to burn energy at the end of a long day, this pool will certainly meet that requirement.
Another very unique thing that this resort has is their B Signature elements, one specifically is the B Humane. Each of the B Resorts throughout the United States adopts a native creature to that resorts region to help protect it. In your room you will find a plush animal waiting for you. This can be purchased from your room or in the gift shop and a portion of the sale goes back to support organizations that protect the creature.
The food at the B Resort and Spa should be a destination all its own. The American Kitchen Bar and Grill has a huge array of offerings that can easily accommodate any dietary need and choice. (As someone who needs to eat Gluten Free I found a variety of tasty dishes here that I am anxious to try..) They also source all their foods from Florida Local Farms.
Here is a link to the menu. This is current as of January 2018.
The B Resort and Spa in the Disney Springs area of Walt Disney World is amazing. The benefits and features of this resort surprised me. The most shocking part is the value, the rates start in “low” season at $119.00 per night, there is also a resort fee of $28.00 per room/per night. Here are a few of the highlights of the room.
- Well Appointed rooms with 2 Queen Beds
- Interior Hallways
- Resort shuttle to Disney Parks
- Waiting distance to Disney Springs
- Aveda bath products
- On site restaurant, store, and gift shop
- Extra Magic Hours Participant
- Fast Pass Selections at 60 days
This hotel is one of the best bargains in Disney Springs. It is unique, affordable, clean, and best of all, right where you need to “B”.
Feel free as any questions you have.
