There are not as many as you might think and if you are being realistic with the number of steps you are willing to take to Walk to Downtown Disney from your Hotel or Disney Resort, the list gets a little shorter. For those who enjoy the extra walking, we will also look at others that may take a little longer to get to but you will surely get your exercise during the Walking process.

Disney Resorts within Walking Distance to Downtown Disney

When we look at this first property, it can be a little misleading when you look up how far the walk is to Downtown Disney. Even though Disney Saratoga Springs Resort can be seen right across from Downtown Disney, this place is huge and it really depends on what part of the resort you are staying, as to if you will want to take the Trek by foot to Downtown Disney. If you are staying in Congress Park, this is by far the closest location to walk from. Walking around the edge of the lake and entering around The Earl of Sandwich is about 850 feet (0.16.miles). If you are on the upperside of the Resort, near The Carousel, your walk increases to about 4,000 feet (0.76 miles). Since all of the Disney Resorts on this side of the Lake connect by a walking path, you can also walk from Disney Old Key West (1.5 Miles), Port Orleans French Quarter (2.2 Miles) or Port Orleans Riverside (2.65 Miles). Anything over this distance is much further than most guests would like to walk but if you are up for some exercise, this is not a bad distance at all.

Non-Disney Hotels within Walking Distance to Downtown Disney

The Buena Vista Palace is the closest Hotel, by Walking, to the Downtown Disney Area on the Lake. The length of walk from the Buena Vista Palace is about 900 feet (0.17 miles). The Hilton Orlando is a great Hotel to stay in that is near Downtown Disney and is only 1250 feet (0.24 miles) by walking. Much further away, but having great amenities and still within Walking distance if you don’t mind a long hike is the Grand Cypress Hyatt Orlando.

Can I walk from the Orlando World Center Marriott?

This is a question that gets asked a lot but most are let down by the answer they receive. This is due to the Orlando World Center Marriott being so very close to Downtown Disney but since it is divided by Interstate 4 there is no easy walking path. If you try to walk you will quickly find that it is about 4 miles away on foot. Good thing they have Transportation to get you there.

A few choices for walking

As you can clearly see, a few of the Hotels within Walking Distance to Downtown Disney are Disney Resorts while other are not. Take your pick and enjoy the shopping and dining available at this wonderful hot spot in Orlando.
