Your Club Wyndham Facebook team’s top pick, The Salty Donut is a local Orlando favorite. About a 20-minute drive from Club Wyndham Orlando International, this shop serves up the highly recommended Toasted Coquito — a 24-hour brioche soaked in homemade coquito, dipped in chocolate, and covered in meringue.
Recommended by Amy Coe Reiter, Duck Donuts lets you customize your own confection. You can pick any combination of coating, topping, and drizzle atop a vanilla cake doughnut — and it’s just a 15-minute drive from Club Wyndham Governor’s Green.
Suggested by Leslie Sommer McCormick, Hurts Donut has over 70 unique flavors ranging all the way from Andes Mint to Fruity Pebbles. If you’re staying at Club Wyndham Branson at The Falls, it’s just a 7-minute drive.
Any doughnut list isn’t complete without mentioning beignets, the official state doughnut of Louisiana. Beignets are fluffy squares, without a hole, doused in powdered sugar. Café Du Monde is famous for these treats paired with their chicory coffee, and it’s just a 15-minute walk from Club Wyndham La Belle Maison.
Shared by Sharon Wilson, DoughBoys Donuts serves up classic treats, plus buttermilk and bear claw doughnuts. If you’re traveling through Wyndham Club Pass, it’s just a 10-minute drive from WorldMark Reno.
Recommended by Gregory Spoonamore-Bailey, Thomas Donuts & Snack Shop is a scenic, 15-minute drive along the beach from Club Wyndham Panama City Beach. Bite into their Old Fashioned Sour Cream Cake or Key Lime Filled doughnuts for breakfast, then come back for pizza, hot dogs, and more for lunch.
An easy 5-minute walk from Club Wyndham Portland Waterfront Park, Voodoo Doughnut has a cult following for a reason. Just one look at their deliciously morbid Voodoo Doll hand-raised yeast doughnut filled with raspberry jelly “blood,” then topped with chocolate frosting and a pretzel “stake,” and you’ll know why.
Inside The Cosmopolitan lies District: Donuts. Sliders. Brew. And it’s a 15-minute walk from Club Wyndham Grand Desert. Doughnut flavors rotate every day, but they take it one step further. How about a Monte Cristo sandwich served up between a griddled doughnut?
Another Wyndham Club Pass must-try, Top Pots Doughnut’s 5th Avenue location is a 12-minute walk from WorldMark The Camlin. Take your pick of more than 40 daily offerings, including Cookies & Cream and Apple Fritter. Then wash it down with their hand-roasted, small-batch coffee.
This Hawaii favorite is a 7-minute walk from Club Wyndham at Waikiki Beach Walk. Holey Grail Donuts serves up taro-based doughnuts fried in coconut oil for a tropical flair. Try the popular tasting box for a curated four-pack of their best seasonal and specialty flavors.
