Why stay at the Fairfield Inn & Suites Orlando at Flamingo Crossings Town Center? Because it’s located in the new Flamingo Crossings neighbourhood, built by Disney, and finished just last year. Its advantage? Be located next to the Disney theme parks without paying full price!
Fairfield Inn & Suites Orlando at Flamingo Crossings
From Orlando International Airport, it takes approximately 30 minutes to reach the Fairfield Inn & Suites Orlando at Flamingo Crossings Town Center.
It is located west of the four Disney parks: Epcot, Animal Kingdom, Magic Kingdom, and Hollywood Studios. You won’t have any trouble getting to either one quickly as each take between 10 and 20 minutes max.

This new area won’t remain a secret for long. New restaurants and shops will soon be built.
Target is already set up. And we’re still waiting on PDQ, Bento Asian Kitchen + Sushi, Five Guys, Ben & Jerry’s, and Dunkin’s. Target is also handy if you want to buy some Disney souvenirs for the kids for less!
We made a reservation for 5 nights at the Fairfield Inn & Suites Orlando at the Flamingo Crossings Town Center.

Upon arriving at the Fairfield Inn & Suites Orlando at the Flamingo Crossings Town Center front desk, our check-in was quick.
A small shop offers essential products. Next door, the common room is large, modern, and warm, with several small lounges.
A computer desk is located near the reception. There are three elevators decorated in a Disney theme and a display of brochures on things to do in Orlando.
The hotel is new, and all the common areas are clean. Everything is well maintained. We were surprised by the large size of the room, perfect for a family of 4 with its two queen beds.
You can even sleep 6 in this room thanks to the sofa bed.
The bathroom consists of a shower, toilet, and sink counter.
The only drawback is that the body care products are small. We had to ask for more of them several times. Not very ecological by my measurements.
There is no restaurant in the hotel. It is possible to order or take away and settle down in the dining room in the morning.
Otherwise, a hot food and cocktail service is available outside next to the pool.
The swimming pool is very pleasant and heated. Water games are available for the children, which we appreciated. You can enter the pool either by the stairs or the gentle ramp, ideal for the kids.
The breakfast room is spacious. We have never had trouble finding a place to sit, even when it’s crowded in the morning. The waiting time is usually not too long to serve yourself.
A fitness room is available, as well as tennis, soccer, and basketball courts.
My general impression of the hotel
Overall, between the spacious room, pool, parking and free breakfast, the Fairfield Inn & Suites Orlando at Flamingo Crossings Town Center was very convenient for our family visiting the Disney theme parks!
Five nights for $500 US was a bargain! If the rate is higher when you come, you may be better off using Marriott Bonvoy points.
Staying with points would cost about 100,000 points (since you can stay 5 nights for the price of 4 using points).
