"The room was very spacious and the amenities provided (towel, cookware) excellent. The pool and grounds were clean and relatively quiet. The location is convenient to the parks and I-4, making it easy to get around Orlando."

Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


Spacious suites at the Blue Heron Beach Resort offer all the comforts of home, with separate living rooms, free Wi-Fi, large, furnished balconies, jetted Jacuzzi tubs, full kitchens and washer/dryers. Among the comforts you might not find at home are views of sparkling Lake Bryan and nightly Disney fireworks.

There's no shortage of activities at this family-friendly resort. Guests can lie beneath shady palm trees in the lushly landscaped pool area, hit a few balls at the mini-golf course next door, work out in one of two fitness centers, and hop aboard the complimentary shuttle to the nearby theme parks. 

TripAdvisor reviewers appreciate the complimentary extras, especially families who can really save money by cooking meals in their suites, and save room in their suitcases by utilizing the in-room washer/dryers. However others take issues with the timeshare sales pitch at check-in, and dated decor in many of the rooms.

The AC in our room didn't work properly. We set the AC at 74 degrees and the unit ran non-stop for our entire stay, rarely getting below 77 degrees.

Does need updating and new mattresses. Did have some ants and a few cockroaches but purchased some bug spray from dollar store in front of hotel, which took care of and did mention when checking out. But our overall experience was great especially for the price.

We probably enjoyed the room rate the most. We got a lot for our money. $77/day less than the onsite Disney hotel we were looking at. That more than paid for dinner every night. The rate also included parking and wifi. It was hard to beat. Lots of restaurants nearby, a Walgreens across the street and close to the Disney entrance on 535.
Other Comments
The Blue Heron staff was friendly and attentive. The pool is huge. No crowding there. The poolside bar was great. Beers for $5.50 and they have food. Good food. About $8 for a meal. The owner and staff were outstanding and fun.
