B Hotels To B Open in Disney World By Early Next Year
We already knew that B Hotels had their eye on a Disney World property and now we've got some more details, including a possible opening date.
The B Hotel will open out of the old Royal Plaza Hotel which was a part of the Downtown Disney Resort Area Hotels and was an Official Walt Disney World Hotel. (The B Disney World will remain a part of the Downtown Disney resorts when it reopens.)
The B will feature 394 "completely redesigned" guestrooms (20 of these will be family-friendly rooms with bunk beds) and brand-new public spaces. The B will also feature a BBQ restaurant concept in partnership with Jeffrey Chodorow of China Grill Management as well as the brand's first full-service B Indulged® spa.
But right now, the hotel is closed for renovations. Work should last through December with the B Disney World opening sometime during the first week of February.
Frankly, we're excited by this. The B will be a modern and contemporary hotel stay but still at a doable price point. In the guestrooms you can expect crisp white sheets, mood lighting, fun mini-bar amenities and even plush green frogs, that are part of the B's B Humane program. (You can "adopt" the stuffed animal at check-out and a portion of the sale will go to a Florida environmental foundation.)
Oh and don't forget about the free WiFi too. February can't come soon enough.
