Another Disney World Resort hotel is now owned by another outside company. Among the scores of Hotels on Walt Disney World Resort Property, from the -neighboring Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa and Disney’s Contemporary Resort to Disney’s Art of and Disney’s , several of them–mostly situated in the Disney Springs Resort Area–are owned by third-party companies. Included in that number has been Hilton, Marriot, and Wyndham–allowing Disney Guests to use their loyalty points and perks to save even more on their Disney World Vacation.
But it now appears that Wyndham Hotels & Resorts has just sold their Club Wyndham Bonnet Creek Resort.
According to the Orlando Business Journal,
“New York-based real estate giant Tishman on March 28 bought the 400-room Wyndham Grand Orlando Resort Bonnet Creek $120.5 million, $301,250 per guest room… The hotel joins other Disney-area Tishman properties, the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin resorts, among many others in the region.”
Wyndham’s Bonnet Creek Resort’s sprawling area gave hundreds of Guests easy access to Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Disney’s Animal Kingdom, and the rest of Disney World’s amenities. Its Guests were included in Disney World Resort Hotel Perks such as Extra Magic Hours and special bus transportation is provided to and from the Theme Parks and Disney Springs.
It is unclear at this time how this sale will affect Wyndham Rewards Members looking to stay on Disney Property. However, Marriot continues to manage the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Hotels and offers Marriot Bonvoy Members special perks and points for their stay. So Guests should expect Wyndham to continue to manage the property now technically owned by Bonnet Creek Owner, LLC.–which traces back to Tishman–and allow Guests to take advantage of their Wyndham rewards on your upcoming Disney World Vacation.
