Drury Plaza Hotel Orlando Added to Early Entry Perk at Disney World

The upcoming Drury Plaza Hotel Orlando has been added to the list of Walt Disney World Resort area hotels with early entry access.

Early Entry is for guests staying at qualifying resorts that allows entry into the Walt Disney World theme parks 30 minutes before they open. The benefit is available at every theme park, every day of the week throughout the 18-month 50th Anniversary Celebration.

Drury Plaza Hotel Orlando on Hotel Plaza Boulevard is near Disney Springs. The hotel is scheduled to open this fall, and is accepting reservations for October 27th and beyond.

This will be the company’s largest when complete, and the second Drury property in the Orlando area.

In 2017, Drury Hotels acquired the former 325-room Best Western Lake Buena Vista Resort and submitted plans to renovate the Best Western property and add a 14-story tower. The initial 264 rooms will open this fall.

Once complete, the Drury Plaza Hotel Orlando Lake Buena Vista will include 604 rooms by spring 2023. The new Disney Springs resort is already designated an Official Walt Disney World Hotel.

The Drury Plaza Hotel Orlando Lake Buena Vista will feature a resort style-pool with whirlpool, kids’ splash zone with water cannons, lounge chairs, cooling umbrellas, and plenty of seating around the 20,000-square-foot pool deck.

The pool features views of Black Lake as well as poolside dining at the Lakeside Bar & Grill.
