I've chosen this hotel because of the good reviews I saw at Trip Advisor, but when I got there I was extremely disappointed... The hotel needs an urgent renovation (wall painting, carpets, furniture, appliances). The room had a beautiful view to the lake, but the strong smell of mold triggered my kids allergy and I couldn't stay there not even... More

The Blue Heron is a wonderful place to stay. It is very close to Disney and to Universal Studios. We had a two bedroom suite which was in very good condition and had two patios. One overlooked the lake and pool area and the other faced Disney. You could see the fireworks at night. The pool area is very clean... More

The Blue Heron is simply the best. It will meet all your needs while in the disney area, from closeness to the theme parks to great restaurants and shopping. You can literally see fireworks shows from all the parks including Sea World. If you want the best deals go to VRBO and make your reservation through them. I can honestly... More

This resort provides excellent location if you're planning to visit Disney parks, universal studios or sea world. It's only around 10 min drive to each attraction. Staff were very friendly. Hotel resides next to a lake with excellent scenery we enjoyed our stay there.

We stayed at the Blue Heron from the 13th Sept for 2 weeks. The accommodation is superb, very clean & spacious. The location is ideal for all the attractions of Orlando (theme parks, International drive, shopping ect) All staff were very helpful and friendly. The deluxe apartment is probably too big for a couple but having the 2 balconies is... More

We stayed in the blue heron to visit disney. We didn't have a car (which no locals could seem to comprehend!) but this hotel was well positioned for this. The shuttle service is good, always on time and quick, it takes you to Epcot and from there you can use disney transportation to get you to any park. There are... More
