    Hi My husband, 2 daughters and I will be holidaying at Disney Orlando at the end of June. We are staying for 10 days and have booked the Waldorf Astoria. Can you tell me how far the hotel is from the park or if it is situated inside the Disney park?

    Hi Niri,

    I just visited the Waldorf Astoria a few months ago.  It really is a lovely resort.  It is not Disney-owned nor is it situated on Disney property.  However, it is very close to Disney's Hollywood Studios and Downtown Disney.  Both of these destinations could be reached by private car in a matter of five to ten minutes.  Epcot is only 10-15 minutes away and the Magic Kingdom and Disney's Animal Kingdom are no more than a twenty minute drive.  If you plan to use the resort's buses to reach the Disney theme parks, be sure to ask for a bus schedule when you check in.

    Let us know if you have any additional questions as you plan your summer holiday, Niri.  We'd be delighted to assist you in any way possible.

    Best wishes,
