This resort is perfect for families going to visit the Disney properties. Although we were not in Kissimmee for that reason, we had a good stay at Vacation Village. It was our first visit to this property and we booked it through an RCI exchange. It is a large complex with many buildings and fortunately for us, we were put in the new building. It is only one year old and in very good shape. Although it is adjacent to Route 4 and you can hear the highway noise all day and night. Nothing fancy but all the basics. Because we were staying for a full week, we were happy to have our own small washer & dryer, a full kitchen, flat screen TVs, hot tub, large living area and patios/decks off the living room and bedroom. It is situated on Route 192 just off of Route 4 close to the Magic Kingdom. We were busy meeting friends and playing golf so we did not take advantage of many of the resort ammenities. There was a Starbucks close by, about a mile, and a great steak house, Charley's, at the entrance to the complex. Also, the Italian restaurant next to Charley's had great take-out pizza. There's also a Publix just down the road and many other fast food restaurants. All in all a good stay for our purposes and I would certainly recommend this resort. They did not give us free Wifi until I asked for it and insisted on not paying. They said they are just installing it and it would be free next month. They gave in and we got it for free instead of a $50 fee. Also, if you don't want to go through a condo sales pitch, stay away from the people where you get your parking pass. They will offer you a "free" breakfast/lunch (at an up front cost to you of $20) if you schedule a time. You get your $20 back if you show up. We had no plans on showing up so passed on all of it and just thanked them for the parking pass and got out of there quickly. We've done too many of these presentations over the years and frankly they are just not worth the free meal or other freebie they may give you, unless you are planning to buy into the resort.

Thank you for taking the time to recommend Vacation Village at Parkway Resort. We are happy that we could provide you with a great experience. At this time there is no change in the Wifi policy and we’re sorry that you were misinformed while at the resort. Thank you for sharing in detail your thoughts and we hope to share our hospitality with you again soon.
