Help for making Hotel Decision

I am visiting Orlando with my 2 daughters 13 and 10 years old in June from 18/6 to 25/6. Looking for hotel offsite as all wdw value resorts which fit my budget do not have microwave in the room which I need Have shortlisted 3 below hotels in our budget of approx $100 as they have microwave, fridge , free breakfast and complimentary shuttles to Disney as will not have car.m
1. Fairfield Inn and Suites at Lake Buena Vista12191 S Apopka Vineland Avenue
2. Springhill Suites at Marriott Village
3 Hampton Inn Lake Buena Vista

Please advise which has better connectivity to Disney Theme parks by public transport as dont want to be tied down to shuttle timings . Can I take Lynx 50 to TTC and then use Disney Shuttle to reach theme parks .? Or would it be a long ride and waste of time . Please help as very confused

there is no public transportation from the hotels you listed.

50 is between WDW and Seaworld - so unless you want to stay at a hotel near SW - this won't work.

since could not find a shuttle on their website - would suggest you call them and ask.

now know the Marriott world center has a shuttle to disney - so just not sure about your choices.

also might call the value resort of your choice - some will provide a microwave - otherwise might use wegoshop and get a microwave for under $30 at a walmart nearby - plus groceries

staying offsite w/car is just asking for delays.

That Marriott Fairfield Inn has great reviews, I keep flip flopping on whether I want to switch my ressie to it since it would be free for us with points. It's right near DTD. We stayed at the Residence Inn off Palm Parkway and that was GREAT. I think it's more than $100 a night though. Breakfast is awesome, Mickey waffles, and free! But no public transportation option that I'm aware of.

Have you considered the downtown Disney hotels? They have a shuttle that runs every 30 minutes:
