Waldorf Astoria Orlando

The first Waldorf-Astoria to be built from the ground up outside of New York’s flagship property, this luxury resort sits right in the middle of Walt Disney World Resort. Swank and sophisticated it redefined local luxury in Orlando when it opened in 2009. Although not technically on Disney property, it’s almost next door to Disney’s Hollywood Studios and just a 5-minute drive to Disney Springs. The reasons to love the resort are many: a sophisticated spa, the Rees Jones-designed golf course, two divine pools, seventy-five acres of wetlands…the list goes on.

Just completed is a propertywide renovation that includes a floor-to-ceiling transformation of all guestrooms and suites, the lobby arrival experience, the Bull & Bear and Peacock Alley restaurants, enhancements to The Waldorf Astoria Spa, and the 18-hole Waldorf Astoria Golf Club. Impressive is the circular, high gloss white marble lobby with its centerpiece a handcrafted replica of the New York Waldorf’s signature clock. And everyone loves the reimagined Peacock Alley, a Waldorf Astoria icon, inspired by the shape of the Peacock’s feathers juxtaposed with a fresh, modern take on Art Deco Design.

As you would expect at a Waldorf Astoria hotel, guest rooms at 448 square feet are stylishly appointed with a palette of neutral tones and soft greens punctuated with sunset tones of pink and orange. They offer crown molding, taupe and white contemporary furnishing, oversized TVs, two-person tables, and Italian marble entry halls and baths. Beds, either a king or double queen, made with triple-sheeted cotton linen come with fluffy white down duvets and pillows. Baths feature taupe vanities with a single sink, Aesop toiletries, a large shower, and a separate soaking tub, but not a separate room for the commode. Views are of the golf course or Disney, and none have balconies

Amenities include twice-daily housekeeping, evening turndown service, robes and slippers, Nespresso coffee machine, laptop-fit safe, iron and ironing board. The hotel does offer balconies, but unfortunately only in suites.

A daily resort charge of $50 (plus tax) will be charged to your room rate per room per night and includes: Complimentary Wi-Fi access throughout the resort and public areas for up to 2 devices (excluding meeting space); two (2) bottles of water daily; shuttle service to Walt Disney World® theme parks and Disney Springs; 20% off Spa treatments at Waldorf Astoria Spa; access to Waldorf Astoria Golf Club practice facilities; complimentary golf club rentals after 2 pm at the Waldorf Astoria Golf Club; 20% off apparel and merchandise at the Waldorf Astoria Pro Shop; access to the Waldorf fitness center.

Cara’s Tip: Rooms on floor eight or above enjoy an all-encompassing view of the entire area and are on request only. There is not a concierge level and lounge at this resort.


The 945 square feet Deluxe Suites have a separate living area with a four-person dining table, a baby blue queen-size memory foam sleeper sofa and two taupe occasional chairs, a bureau over which is a wall-hung, oversized TV, and a balcony. A buffet with a Subzero refrigerator, wet bar, and mini-bar is within the living area. A king or double queen bed is in the primary bedroom, with an occasional chair and bureau with another TV. Baths are slightly larger but similar to those in a Deluxe Room. This suite becomes a 2-bedroom Chairman’s Suite with the addition of a Deluxe Room with two queen beds on the other side of the living area. Views are of the resort, golf course, or distant view of the theme parks, including Tower of Terror, Expedition Everest, and Spaceship Earth.
