LAKE BUENA VISTA, FL—B Resort, scheduled to open this summer in the Walt Disney World resort complex, partnered with the Wildlife Foundation of Florida as part of the B Hotels' Humane program.
The program is designed to increase awareness of endangered species native to the destination.
B Resort selected the Gopher Frog, a species endemic to the Southeastern United States that is threatened due to the loss of its natural habitat. A plush frog will be awaiting guests on the bed in each one of the guestrooms. Guests may purchase the plush frogs during their stay and a percentage of the retail proceeds go to the Wildlife Foundation of Florida, a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing assistance, funding and promotional support to contribute to the health and well-being of Florida's fish and wildlife resources and their habitats.
Opening in this summer, B Resort integrates "Signature Elements" at the Lake Buena Vista resort, including FreeB Wi-Fi throughout the property; loaner guest iPads; and Monscierge, a digital touchscreen concierge and destination guide. B Resort is situated in the Downtown Disney area and will feature a zero-entry saltwater pool, fire pits; a kids’ zone; and four dining options. All rooms feature the brand’s plush Blissful Bed. Select guestrooms offer bunk beds, kitchenettes and private cabanas.

When you hear all the lodging industry projections for the months and years to come, much of the robust growth is forecast to be the result of the expected influx of travelers from China. In what could only be seen as good news for the industry, that expectation moved a little closer to reality when President Obama signed a visa waiver extension for Chinese travelers earlier this month.
