There are more than thirty incredible hotels that you can stay at while visiting the Walt Disney World Resort. Each resort has its own unique theme, great amenities, and delectable dining options.

They also range in price, so nearly every guest can find a Disney hotel that works for them and their budget. There are Value Resorts like Art of Animation and Pop Century, Moderate Resorts like Coronado Springs and Caribbean Beach, and Deluxe Resorts like Polynesian Village and Animal Kingdom Lodge.

But, did you know that not every Walt Disney World hotel is owned by Disney? Nearly a dozen hotels on Walt Disney World Resort property are owned and operated by different companies.

This includes the Disney World Swan and Dolphin hotels, Four Seasons Resort Orlando, B Resort & Spa Lake Buena Vista, Hilton Orlando Lake Buena Vista, Waldorf Astoria Orlando, Holiday Inn Orlando, Doubletree Suites by Hilton Orlando, and Drury Plaza Hotel Orlando Lake Buena Vista.

Now, it’s no secret that a Disney vacation is expensive, so it’s always great when you can snag a discount. But, if you stay at the Drury Plaza Hotel Orlando, you can actually eat for FREE every single day! That’s right, we said that you can eat for free!

The Drury Hotel — which is located in the Disney Springs area of the Resort —  not only offers a complimentary breakfast, but they also host a daily “Kickback Hour”.

The “Kickback Hour” at the Drury Resort Disney Springs is seriously incredible.

Full bar with up to 3 alcoholic drinks per adult (or unlimited free mocktails), plus an extensive rotating food lineup including pasta, meatballs, nachos, hot dogs, baked potatoes, soup/salad, & more

Kickback Hour is from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. daily, but you aren’t getting the same old thing each and every day. What makes this offering truly spectacular is that the menu changes daily!

As if free food wasn’t great enough, guests aged 21 and over can get three cocktails per night. And younger guests can enjoy unlimited mocktails, which are equally delicious.

As we said, a Walt Disney World Resort vacation is not a cheap experience. Between the hotel, travel, park tickets, meals, and money set aside for merchandise, that can add up very quickly. And that cost can go up even more if you and your party plan on purchasing extras like Disney Genie+ or book any tours like the Wild Africa Trek.

The Drury Plaza Hotel is considered a Deluxe Resort, so the rooms will not be the cheapest that you can find on Disney World property. However, if you can get two meals a day for free, the savings can add up. So, you will definitely want to consider this Disney Springs Resort area hotel for your next stay, especially if eating in the theme parks isn’t your top priority.
