A great family location with large family suites and bunk beds can be found at the Sheraton Lake Buena Vista. Having 2 outdoor pools, zero-entry and an enclosed water slide, there is something for each member of the family to enjoy. Transportation to the Disney Theme Parks is included but not Disney Springs.
