Staycation at the Hilton Buena Vista Palace

 

Our beautiful little girl turned three in early October. When we asked Caity what she wanted to do for her birthday, she said, ”I want to go to the Disney Castle.” And, we decided to embark on another staycation. Being Orlando residents and Disney pass holders, this request was more than reasonable for our Disney Princess. Hilton Buena Vista Palace was our choice for this staycation. My husband is a Hilton rewards Honor member, and we were also able to upgrade room. We have yet to be disappointed with staying at any Hilton Hotel.

Hotels that offer a separate living area are more spacious for a family. The suite also had two bathrooms. One bathroom with a tub/shower and a separate standing shower. This feature is perfect for families because we didn’t have to wait for an open shower to use. This was such a splendid bonus!!! I used the second bathroom to get ready while my husband was getting dressed. The suite had two balconies; one connected to the living room and the other one was connected to the bedroom. I enjoyed lounging on the balcony connected to the bedroom, while my husband utilized the separate balcony to work.

The Disney Store contained anything Disney. The kids had a field day in the stores. I limited the toys to two items each. The only rule I had, was no toy purchases of toys they already had. I broke my own rule by purchasing a Jackson Storm car that son already had at home. Oh well, it’s hard to keep up with all the toys they have in the playroom.

My little ones also forgot that their father was with us because all I heard was, Mommy we want, Mommy look at this, Mommy lets stop here, Mommy what's that smell, etc. They kept me busy but I had a blast with them.The hotel was located within walking distance to the famous Disney Springs once known as Downtown Disney. We were able to walk from our hotel-cross over the walkway that connected directly to Disney Springs.

I was concerned because we have small children, that it was going to be too much of a walk for them but it wasn’t bad. The only downfall was that the Springs is still a large area to cover without a stroller. I adore the Springs and being able to feel the excitement from my two little ones.

Our goal was to visit two parks on Saturday, but our little girl started to feel sick. We started the day at Animal Kingdom, which the kids love because they are currently into everything dinosaurs. Our daughter is an animal lover and is fearless. She does not fear the animals like her Mommy or big brother. Caity Bear brushed and played with the animals by the Affection Section, which is similar to a petting zoo.

We weren’t able to visit Magic Kingdom that night due to the little Princess not feeling well. The hotel amenities had many things for us to enjoy. My husband and son were able to play in the arcade room and swim in the pool, that also had a lazy river. The next day was a treat for the kids.They were able to meet a few of the Disney characters.
