“Still the best”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

I'm not sure what I can say that I haven't before so I'll keep it basic.
We have stayed at this hotel every year for the past 4 years each time staying from 7-10
Days.

This hotel is decorated so tastefully and elegant , the rooms are beautiful with fab showers and comfortable beds.
Even the elevators have that touch of class and the grounds are simply charming.

Some people may say that plenty of hotels have all this and that maybe so but what sets this one part from the others are the staff!!
From the first contact you have with the staff as pull up to the hotel is second to non. The door staff do such a good job always rushing about busy trying to keep the guests happy, they are fast, polite and always on the ball to open your doors.
Steve on check is a fab guy and does his job to the full. He took my daughter on a trip around the grounds in the trolly to teach her to drive. Really made her day and he is a big asset to the hotel.
The front desk staff too are always so pleasant and offer a smile when passing and happy to help with anything. Often a member if staff will be forward of the desk in to the lobby area which is a step forward to reaching out to the guests and brings down that desk barrier which I thinks makes people that bit more comfortable and them approachable.
The pool staff are always near by and even when busy they remain calm.
The Bull and Bear restaurant offer some of the best food and service to match that's why it's in the top restaurants in orlando :)
We are always given a disney room or suite and if you have children it's really worth it.

Thank you waldorf for every year making our holiday so special and please don't change a thing?

if you like to be pampered. this one is one of those. great food too. the pool is a bit for adults, but you can share the pool at the adjacent property, the Hilton Bonnet Creek with a lazy river. you can also share room charges between both hotels. the shuttle bus between the hotels and Disney parks are extremely comfortable and always in time.

We had the opportunity to stay at the Waldorf Astoria Orlando for 8 nights on a recent trip to Disney.

Overall this is an incredible hotel, the staff was extremely helpful and goes the extra mile to make sure your stay is memorable. The lobby and lounge is beautiful (and a welcome relaxation point after a day at the parks) and the rooms are very well appointed (suites a great deal compared to Disney regular rates). Hotel is very close to many of the Disney theme parks and the complimentary shuttle bus takes a big hassle out of the day. (Note the shuttle kind of rotates through different parks depending on departure time so be sure to check in advance). Many of rooms have a view over the golf course overlooking Epcot and Hollywod studios; this provides an excellent view of fireworks when you've decided to come back to the hotel a little early.

Breakfast (and other meals we had) in the hotel was superb and made eating theme park food later in the day tolerable.
Note the hotel adjoins the Hilton so there is plenty to do and restaurants/bars to frequent.
Will definitely stay here again.

We booked this hotel for a two and a half week stay - not a weekend or one weeks stay but longer, much to my regret! I'm rating it 3 stars due to the excellent finishes in the hotel & definitely not the service & experience I have in other top 5 star hotels!. Have not heard from any management or staff to find out how our stay is going - which I must admit in the Middle East after 3 days stay in a grand 5 star hotel you would get this without a doubt! I've been here 2 weeks and not one staff member has asked how our experience has been so far, didn't get the complimentary drink on arrival, didn't get the water every day that's supposed to be there - so went out & bought it myself - I'm looking to check out early into another 5 star hotel in the area for our last week as I feel we have overstayed our welcome at a very high rate compared to what I see is going out there in the market. The decor & finishes are stunning & quality throughout what's missing is that personal touch that makes you feel that you getting you getting your money's worth! The rooms are cleaned adequately, staff are friendly but not professional - seems like college student earning their summer vacation! Unlike other 5 star hotels where this is their living & that's what they're trained to do professionally & they do it because they love it- not snigger & comment to other staff that the 'top paying client' you dropped someone's dirty fork on the head is entering the breakfast room! So no - I don't think I'll be booking my next 3 week vacation with this hotel as there are many others in the area that deserve a chance - maybe a weekend as many locals tend to do ( they must know that service drops after a few days)...

Room Tip: Don't purchased in advance you think you getting a good deal - you aren't! Book as you go al...

The hotel has wonderful accomodations, but i was unable to sleep due to the lack of a/c. The control works, but the system cannot deliver in the hot months. I reported the problem to the front desk staff and they acknowledged the issue and were sympathetic, but could not solve the issue.

We have stayed here twice. Both were for my birthday. It is hard to rate it, since they were complete opposites. The first time everything couldn't have been better. The second time, we had to call the desk four times, due to espresso not working, crying baby and screaming people next door and the shower not working. The manager was very gracious when we left (without showers), and we did not pay for the room or parking (and we did not ask her to do that). I think it was just a fluky thing that happened, but I am sure this new manager will be on top of it. As a suggestion if you stay here, valet, as it is not much more than the garage and the walk from the garage to the hotel is longer than you may think. We would stay there again, but ask not to stay by a family if possible.

Room Tip: The first time we had a king bed. Second time two queens. Maybe we would not be by a family if we...

We stayed here on our final night at Disney because I had enough travel points to use towards the stay. We were very happy with our decision to try it out. All of the staff we encountered were very friendly and helpful. The hotel is amazingly beautiful just like the online photos. We used the transportation (a coach bus) to Hollywood Studios for our dinner reservations, and it was both convenient and comfortable. They were also very timely in adhering to their pick up and drop off times. We also used the pool at the Waldorf and it was very nice. They provide everything you need to be comfortable. We regret not trying out the lazy river at the attached hotel, though they had offered to take us over by golf cart. On addition to allowing us to check in 2hours early, the staff was also very accommodating in getting us checked out quickly so we could make it to our character breakfast at another Disney hotel on time. We would definitely stay here again and wish we had spent more than one night. Beds/rooms incredibly comfortable and clean. We were on 15th floor with view to front of hotel, but even that view was nice.
