Disney-owned property a half-mile out its little-used western gate past Coronado Springs is slowly being developed into Flamingo Crossings, a hub for lower-cost hotels. So far there’s not much out there, not even flamingoes, and getting to I-4 and the other attractions of Orlando will require driving across the busy Disney resort. But it’s worth it for two new pristine Marriott-flagged hotels (opened 2016) with no parking or resort fees, and still undiscovered enough to yield very low pries. SpringHill offers doubles and queens with a desk partition (hence the “suites”), plus small fridges and microwaves, while TownePlace bumps up to a full-sized fridge. They share a big central pool area with a bar. Retail and restaurants are on their way to the Crossings, too, but right now they’re only twinkles in a developer’s eye, so for food options take the toll expressway (State Road 429, $1.25) one less than a mile south to U.S. 192.
