About the Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott Lake Buena Vista in the Marriott Village

The hotel is close to a number of shopping, dining and entertainment venues including the Orlando Vineland Premium Outlets. Just adjacent to the Marriott Village are three restaurants which include a BJ’s Restaurant, Golden Corral Buffet & Grill and Bahama Breeze.
There are multiple ways to get to the Orlando International Airport from this location. During non-peak times we would recommend taking the Beach Line Expressway (SR 528) west to Interstate 4. Head west on Interstate 4 to Apopka Vineland Road (exit 68) and the resort is just south of the exit. This route will take approximately 20 minutes without traffic delays.
During peak times Interstate 4 could become a parking lot or an alternative is to take the south exit of the Orlando International Airport (527A) to SR 417. Travelers should head west on SR 417 to SR 536 (exit 6). Just one block from the exit is SR 535 (Apopka Vineland Road) – go north on Apopka Vineland Road and the property will be on the left (west side) in approximately one-half mile.
Since the Fairfield Inn in the Marriott Village is located just outside of the Walt Disney World Resort, the four Disney theme parks as well as the two Disney water parks and Disney Springs are a very short distance.
