Wyndham Bonnet Creek is a fabulous timeshare resort inside the boundaries of the 30,000 acres that make up Walt Disney World. You can't get any closer, even in Disney's own resorts. This listing is for the Presidential Suite at Bonnet Creek - NOT THE DELUXE UNITS you see in other listings. The photos below are actual photos of the 2 Bedroom Presidential Suite.
The Presidential Suite is located in Tower 6, the one everyone wants to be in. The new pool with the lazy river, the pirate ship water slide, and the best of the outdoor restaurants are located at Tower 6. There are also cabanas at tower 6 pool that can be reserved for a fee. There are 2 shuttle pick-up sites for the free shuttle to the Disney parks, one at the main building, and the other at Tower 6. You also have your own check in desk so you do not have to stand in the long line at 4 pm when everyone is trying to check in. WE ARE NOT ABLE TO MAKE ROOM REQUESTS IN PRESIDENTIAL SUITES. FIREWORKS VIEWS IN TOWER 6 ARE BLOCKED BY TOWER 5.
You have access to all the resort amenities and services. You are just 'special' in the presidential suite. This is the ultimate luxury.

I have been college professor and high school teacer. I am now retired and was hoping to travel. Health and family have kind of put a damper on that, but I am working on it!
I had a couple of strokes in 2009, and now one of my daughters helps with reservations. She is fantastic and will work diligently to make your vacation experience wonderful. I can answer all your questions. Jordan will handle the paperwork. All of us are committed to doing everything we can to help you.
We have a large number of points and cannot use all our vacation time at present. I also act as an agent for 24 other owners. We had planned to do a lot of traveling . . . to all 120 Wyndham resorts. But life never turns out like you expect. We are not yet able to go as much as we would like. Until then, you can enjoy the vacation time we are not using at any of their resorts. Our rates are based upon the maintenance fees Wyndham charges us. We have kept our rates as reasonable as possible, but we will not rent for less than what it costs us.
The Owner purchased this condo in 2010
This is one of the most fun places in the whole country to stay. You would have fun here even if it was not in Orlando.
Epcot is less than 1 mile away. The Magic Kingdom is less than 2 miles. There are shuttles to all the Disney parks. Parking is free. Amenities include 5 huge pools, 2 lazy rivers, 2 water slides, mini golf, and much more.
This review comes quite late, 6 months so, but that is not to reflect anything negative on this amazing experience. When you deal with this owner, you will be pleased at the attention and assistance she provides! The time share room was the nicest place we have ever stayed. The HVAC ran loudly, but otherwise no complaints!!
The Lazy River was a big attraction for our family and we enjoyed it tremendously! The unit is so close to Epcot, you won't believe it!
It is our intention to return to Disney and avoid the stomach bug this time. We would return to this owner in a heartbeat! Thank you so much!!!!
Our family had a great family holiday staying at Wyndham Bonnet Creek. The suite had everything needed to stay at the resort. It was fully furnished with everything in great condition. Very clean. Just a great place to stay. The resort was also immaculate. Nice staff and well-maintained. We had a rental car and access to the Disney Resorts and Universal Studios was very easy. A memorable family vacation and we would certainly recommend this spot to anyone!
We loved the presidential suite from the minute we opened the door. WOW, it was just as pictured, clean and spacious. We enjoyed the all of the pools, We spent one evening "Pool Hopping" it was a wonderful peaceful break from the Disney Parks. We also enjoyed walking around the lake exploring all the fun amenities. We took the Disney Shuttles to the park, it was just so easy.
The only downside -
We did get a couple of phone calls asking if we would like to attend the presentation. We had to be pretty clear about saying no. This starts when you pick up your parking pass, Just tell them no from the get go, and that you don't want any calls. It wasn't that big of a nuisance, but helps to be forewarned.
Would we stay there again - Oh Yes, and cannot wait to return - the condo was perfect, and the resort is wonderful.
This was our second stay at Bonnet Creek and again it was fantastic! This time we opted to upgrade to a 2 bedroom Presidential unit and we're so happy we did. Our unit was GORGEOUS and sparkling clean when we arrived. It was just as pictured in the listing. You have everything you could possibly need. The way the bedrooms and baths are set up there is plenty of privacy and plenty of space for everyone to be comfy. The view of the pools and lake from our balcony was lovely, especially at night. From the 17th floor we could see a little bit of Epcot, the Contemporary, the Tower of Terror and much more! What a view. We rented a cabana at the pirate ship pool and spent a wonderful day there. Our five year old daughter loved it. We had protection from the sun, a fridge, a TV, a ceiling fan and phone to order food for delivery. Nice!! The location of Bonnet Creek can't be beat. Inside the main Disney gate you can drive to all of the parks, Downtown Disney, Treasure Island, etc, all within just a few minutes. Or you can take the free shuttle to and from the parks. We didn't try any of the restaurants at the resort on this trip, but there are some new ones that look very good. It's nice to have the option of dining on the property if you'd like. It really is a beautiful property. It is clean and well-maintained. It's important for me to note that both times we've visited it was during a slow time. It was not crowded, everything was clean, the service was great. I cannot speak for busier times of the year. Also, please keep in mind that this is a timeshare and you will be approached about sales seminars, etc. If you have no interest, simply be very clear that you have no interest. We did not find this aspect to be a bother whatsoever. Just be aware that this isn't a hotel, it's a timeshare. On that note, please also be aware that there is no daily housekeeping service. It is up to you to keep your space clean and to use the in-room washer and dryer to wash towels, etc. Again, not a bother at all. Just know what to expect.
Dealing with Cathy Jennings to make our reservations has been nothing but an absolute pleasure. She is responsive and extremely helpful and professional. We could not have been happier with our entire experience, both times, and we shall return!!
The other reviewers have said it all. We were very happy we booked a Presidential Suite. It was exactly as photographed. We had a view of the lake and pools and we were also able to see much of the Epcot fireworks from the balcony! We were only there for 3 nights so really did not have time to enjoy the amenities. Next time we will make sure we have a couple of days to enjoy all that Bonnet Creek has to offer. The bus to the parks was convenient and ran on time. Catherine was very responsive and a pleasure to work with. Thank you!
Well as the reviewers before me have stated, this condo/resort is simply fabulous! I am a tough customer and I can tell you for me to have absolutely no complaints, only compliment after compliment, is the highest praise I can give! The location is perfect for all Disney theme parks and Downtown Disney. We did rent a car, but there is shuttle service available through the resort. The photos are exactly the way the property looks. What the photos don't show is the unit's location to the elevator! You walk out of the elevator and the Presidential Reserve Suites are the first units you come to! We stayed at Disney's Boardwalk last year, paid more and literally walked half a mile to get to our room each and every time! The convenience of parking right outside your building, riding up the elevator and your room is right there.....priceless. Cathy and Emily were prompt and courteous in all of my dealings with them and everything was simply seamless. The resort is impeccable in cleanliness. There is not daily maid service as there is in a hotel, but with the limited time you spend in the unit, nothing really gets dirty except for towels. I did wash a load of towels mid-week. I have already recommended this resort/type of unit to several friends. The timeshare desk was a bit annoying in calling us every morning even though we told them emphatically that we were not interested and please don't call us. But even that can be overlooked. Funny thing is, if they would've left us alone, we may have asked them questions about becoming owners! Thanks Cathy and Emily for leading us in the right direction with this rental. We'll see you next year!
The resort and staff offer many activities for free or a nominal charge such as face painting, hoola hoop contests, Texas Hold 'em Tournaments, Karaoke, and much more.
