    We just returned from 8 nights at Hilton BC. We will stay there again! The pool is the best we have ever experienced at any hotel. The staff is wonderful and so friendly. The room was a nice size, though we did miss having a balcony. The restaurants were wonderful too - especially La Luce. I would highly recommend this place!

    Do not hesitate to stay here. You won't be disappointed.

    My wife, son and I just had 3 wonderful nights there over Thanksgiving.
    We prefer to stay on property, but we could find no fault with the room or the property. We had a "Disney view" on the 15th floor (2 queen beds). We could see much of Illuminations out to the right side of the huge picture window.
    On Thanksgiving the Hilton has their own fireworks that were quite nice too.

    I want to stay at this hotel after I get an opportunity to stay at the neighboring Waldorf Astoria.

    Did you fly into MCO? If so, how did you get to the hotel? Have you stayed on WDW property before and was it easier or more difficult than using the Magical Express bus? Also, how often was the bus transporting you to WDW and back? I heard it has a bus every half hour which is shared with the Waldorf.

    Thanks for your posts. This looks like a great resort. What is the best way to book? Are there any discounts? Love to look into this resort for our trip in June.

    Go to lastminutetravel.com. I just reserved a stay there for September & booked for $78 per night!!! When you log on to their site you will put in Orlando and it brings up Hotels available. It is a 4.5 star hotel in Orlando & it's listed from $80. Look at the photos and you will be able to tell it's the Hilton. You can compare to Hilton's website to make sure. I am too excited to get this hotel for this price!! Good luck to you!

    It will be a 4.5 star hotel on the first page of Orlando hotels. It will have a long description that will say .5 miles to Disney, 1001 rooms, deluxe accomadations. The biggest way to tell is to click on the photos tab and look at the room photos. That's what gave it away from me. You can pull up photos on Hilton website & compare. Good luck the rates are fabulous!!!!!!:thumbsup2

    Check the photos tab to make sure you've got the right hotel. You can compare the photos with Trip Adviser! It is very easy to know what you are getting even without the name visible.:) I just checked the website again today and looks like you can still get a good rate for this hotel!

    We are heading to BC for one night. I am very excited. We will have a full day to play there. Got it on LMT for $78. We just needed an offsite for the night before we check in to our disney hotel.

    We just returned from our trip in March and we stayed at the HBC. I loved it and would definitely choose this hotel again. Everything about the place was great and the pool area was really nice. I can't wait to go back!

    We were there friday and my kid was glued to the pool, we never made if off the hotel complex. At 8:30 pm, they set up a huge movie screen at the pool and show movies. Friday nights movie was Despicable Me, our first experience with a "dive in"

    We will be staying there in a few days too for our first night in Orlando

    On last minute travel, if you pretend to add a car rental to your hotel, you can then press on continue booking and to the right of your screen it will show you which hotel it is!

    I just booked Hilton Bonnet Creek for 1 night and I got a message saying they couldn't confirm my request because the deal was sold out and they have to see if they can get additional rooms. They say they will let me know within 48 hrs.---keeping our fingers crossed as we are staying at the Bonnet Creek Resort from Tues-Friday so this would be so convenient for our 1st day.
