You're Going to Love Lake Buena Vista

Lake Buena Vista is a great choice if you long to visit the Disney parks or other famous Florida theme parks like Universal Studios and SeaWorld Adventure Park.

However, a stay in Lake Buena Vista needn't be entirely dedicated to theme parks. The resort is the ideal base for retail fans who want to shop in Florida's famous outlet malls and it's a good starting point for trips to the coast, Cape Canaveral, or Everglades National Park.
