“relaxing vacation at parkway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

very nice timeshare. checkin easy, parking pass counter separate(timeshare sell) just said no thanks. unit large and clean. nice balcony (bldg 16) dish soap,laundry soap, and bar soap provided. no shampoo, remember this is not a hotel!!! pool area beautiful, clean and warm water. grab a chair early only sun on one side of pool all day.(they do have 5 pools which you can use all if you want) parking is hard but we just went around back. nothing to ruin our vacation over. very central but not near noise. we were on vacation, not working, how can you complain about that!!!

We are grandparents and our daughter and grandson joined us. It was great for our grandson with the nice playground. He loved the jetted tub in our room too. We thoroughly enjoyed watching him have fun. We were comfortable as well. The unit was a bit dated and the lighting was stark. We had a washer/dryer in the unit which was very nice. Check in was long and the sales pitch at the end (when they give you your parking pass) was easily maneuvered with a simple no answer on the income qualifications.

Room Tip: We stayed in Bldg 5 second floor. Convenient except for the door which locks behind you other than...

We stayed at Vacation Village Parkway from Feb 24-March 2! I highly recommend you stay here... Request building 16 or 17.
We stayed in building 16... One bedroom full kitchen, stove, microwave, dishwasher, full fridge, washer sbd dryer fir clothes! The room was beautiful! The bed was a king... With a jacuzzi right beside it! The couch is a pull out sofa bed! Flat screen TV's and the location to all major attractions is 15 mins away! The pool is so warm you can swim all day:) Great resort... We will be back!

We loved our stay at the vacation village!! Beautiful rooms, lovely grounds and a very nice (warm) pool!!! The resort is centrally located in Florida. We used it as a base camp for adventures to the Gulf and the Atlantic.

Room Tip: Request a room facing the courtyard. It makes for great coffee drinking and people watching from you...

This was the first time we stayed here, and it was okay. We loved the location, everything we wanted to do was fairly close by. The rooms were very nice and clean! The beds were surprisingly comfortable , and the kitchen and patio was nice too. The only thing we didn't like was the parking. During the day there's plenty of parking, but after around 7:00 or 8:00 , there are no longer parking spaces close by. Half the time we had to park in the parking garage, which was very far from our building. The parking situation makes things inconvient for parents like us with young children. We won't be going back here for our next family vacation because of the parking, it was way too inconvient. There is also a hundred dollar deposit and a $25 mandatory fee for wifi and shuttle service at check in. They also pressure you to go to a " free " breakfast to hear about more timeshare opportunities , which is just a waste of time.

Thank you for your sharing your experience. We’re happy that you enjoyed our location and accommodations but are disappointed that you decided not to return. The $25 resort fee you wrote about in your review covers a host of activities and amenities including shuttle service from the parking garage to the guest buildings. The timeshare presentation is optional and guests are encouraged to attend if they would like to know more about the benefits of owning timeshare. We hope that the value provided in our oversized rooms, perfect locale, and the many amenities we have that aren’t found in most hotels will entice you to reconsider and return to Vacation Village at Parkway on your next visit to Orlando.

This was our first time at this resort and I am sure we will be back. Location is great for Disney or any other fun things you may want to do. The amenities were fabulous. We came with my sister and nephew and having the A and B unit was perfect for our family. Pools and hot tubs were always warm and located close by. I have no complaints and would recommend this location to anyone visiting Orlando.

Room Tip: If you want quiet and privacy you do not want a pool view.
