Just wondering if the "dive-in movie" is exclusive to the Hilton BC, or is it accessible to Wyndham BC guests as well?
TIA!
No, the HBC has their own lazy river. The Dive-in movies are for HBC and Waldorf guests. The Wyndham Bonnet Creek is a separate property altogether.

last minute travel

I noticed today that Last Minute Travel no longer has HBC available for any dates. It doesn't show up in a search of Orlando anymore. I hope this is temporary as I was just about to book for July.

Try some of the other sites, or go directly to the Hilton site. There are always specials and packages and usually something for everyone.

WBC does not have any access to Hilton Bonnet Creek.

Thank you, Ron & Pamela for clearing up the distinction between the pools, etc on the property.

I've tried them all. Nothing comes close to the $109 that LMT had listed for my dates. My best bet is a FL Res. rate for $178 through the Hilton site, which is the same rate I'm seeing on the discount travel sites. My best option may be to stay at the Waldorf where they have an nightly rate of $157 (actually $209, but one night would be free during my 4 night stay) per night on the travel sites. I know they are on the same property, but we are there for my daughter's dance convention and all my daughter's friends will be in the HBC. Plus, I'm afraid that the Waldorf may be a little too snobby for my liking.

BTW, enjoy your B-day trip!

Ron

No problem. Until I'd stayed at the HBC my perception was that they were all basically on the same property. The actual Bonnet Creek resort is actually a pretty good hike on foot away from the HBC.

"I also stayed in an accessible luxury suite at the Waldorf this March on an eupgrade through Hilton after booking through LMT at the Hilton bonnet creek."


Could you please tell me what an "eupgrade" is, and how to get it?

TIA!

Also, just asking, do all rooms at HBC have a fridge?

Thanks!

LOL I assumed "eupgrade" was a typo!

I would really like to know about the fridges too, if anyone knows....

Thanks

I'm sitting by the pool at HBC now, and can report that all rooms have a fridge! Fantastic hotel, the pool is great and is keeping the kids happy for hours. I think a treble thumbs up from us! :-)

2013 rates?

Any more recent experiences with HBC rates? Trip reports?
We usually stay on Disney property (Pop, All-Stars, POR, CB), so I am curious what the experience would be for those used to staying "onsite".
Tempting to try it out for the extra room!

We stayed there in August and LOVED it and the $95 a night made it that much better. Used a Hilton Honors code to get that rate. I booked it again through last minute travel for the Princess half and got it at $173 cheaper them any Disney moderate.

We had no sales calls during our visit. My children loved the pool and lazy river and we loved the food at the poolside restaurant. We never had an issue with bus transportation to/from the parks (we did have a car so drove to DTD and Universal.
