Bonnet Creek Resort
Bonnet Creek Resort is a 70-acre (280,000 m2) enclave in the southeast corner of Walt Disney World. Although it is accessible inside the gates of Walt Disney World, it is not owned by Disney. It is bordered on three sides by Disney-owned land and is surrounded by the Bonnet Creek nature preserve. The entrance is located just east of the entrance to Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort.
The resort development includes a cluster of luxury hotels. There is currently:
- A 1,100-room Wyndham Resort timeshare resort
- The 499-room Waldorf Astoria Orlando, the first new Waldorf Astoria hotel built since the original in New York City.
- The 1,001-room Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek, known for its lazy river pool deck and popular La Luce by Donna Scala restaurant.
- A 400-room Wyndham Hotel is located adjacent to the Wyndham Vacation Resort timeshare property
- An 18-hole Rees Jones-designed Waldorf Astoria Golf Club.
The Hilton and Waldorf Astoria hotels are joined by a 250,000-square-foot (23,000 m2) Bonnet Creek Convention Center.
The name Bonnet Creek references a body of water that flows through the property. The name was actually used by Disney for more than 10 years as the name of a golf club. "The Creek", as it was known to cast members, encompassed Eagle Pines and Osprey Ridge golf courses, as well as the Sandtrap Bar & Grill restaurant.
