“Large suites, convenient to Disney”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 days ago NEW

The Good:
Excellent spacious suites, quite experience
I didn't feel hassled to buy a timeshare while staying.
Very convenient to Disney Parks!
The pool (buildings 16, 17) is heated (we visited in Nov), beautiful, has a zero-entry end that was great for our kids. There's also a "splash pad" playground.

Didn't like:
Wifi was mediocre, and costs money.

Room Tip: Buildings 16,17 are the newest at the moment and have an incredible pool

We stayed here for a week and really enjoyed it. Check in was great until we got to the individual for our parking pass. Their entire purpose for sending you to another person for a parking pass is to sign you up for one of their presentations. Once he realized we were not going to participate he literally threw our parking pass at us. Nice way to begin a weeks vacation. The resort itself was very nice, well stocked, clean and close to all the parks. We used their free shuttle to the parks with excellent results. We would come back even knowing the drill at check in.

Stayed here in August this year! We had a one bed room unit with full kitchen! It's a very clean property with a couple nice pools. My only complaint is that there is no on site restaurant here so you have to leave the property or hit the grocery store. The beds were comfortable and the jacuzzi in the room is very nice. I would stay here again knowing it is about 20 minutes from Disney but still close to most of the shopping.

After reading some negative reviews, I decided to write about our positive experience. We stayed for a week and rented a 2 BDRM unit in building 17 on the 10th floor. It was absolutely perfect! Nothing was lacking; it felt like home. The kitchen had everything you could possible need including an electric frying pan and a crockpot! The whole unit was extremely clean and fresh, and nicely furnished. When I made the reservations, I spoke with Lily. She was very accommodating! I told her we were bringing our grandchildren for a trip to the Disney Parks and wanted to be away from any construction/highway noise. She arranged the perfect room for us.The resort is only a 10 minute drive to the Parks. They have shuttle service if interested. I couldn't be more pleased with our stay here, and we will DEFINITELY return.

Room Tip: Higher floors have less noise and great views. Ask for a room in the newer buildings.

Watch out! They charge for everything and are not flexible nor accommodating. I saw some newer timeshares I was tempted to stay at, but I came back here because the first time was nice... I won't be back.

I became member of the Vacation Village chain in September last year during a trip to Mexico.The hotel iin Orlando was quite a nice option. It was pretty close to the main theme parks (closer to Disney).
The hotel is huge and although doesn't seem glamorous at a fisrt glince, one can have a much better impression when staying in there. The water park inside the hotel was a fantastic surprise. After all it was a real relief of being in those crowed theme parks of the city. Most especially I want to cheer the rooms. You can stay in apartments for up to 8 adults.
This way I would strongly recomend this hotel for those parents who are gonna stay for a week or more, would like to feel somewhere comfortable and would search for apartments big enough to fit your family.

Check in was a breeze. We got there around 3:30, and there were no lines, and the front desk was very courteous. After you check in, they ask you to go and get your parking pass. They do this because they want you to sign up for their timeshare presentation. Since we own somewhere else, they said it would be a very quick breakfast, and wanted a survey to be filled out at the end. It turned out to be a very high pressure sales presentation, and they refused to accept that we weren't interested. Eventually they gave up, but they were very rude. It's up to you to decide if the gifts they give you are worth it. It took about two hours.

We were staying in building 17 in an A unit. Living room, kitchen, and the bedroom were very large in size and clean. We were very happy with it. the kitchen was also well stocked w/ dishes, utensils..etc.

The pools seemed nice, however, only went into them a couple of times since the weather wasn't the greatest. one thing I did notice was that the buildings were so high (10 floors), and so close to each other that they block the sun for most of the day. it also would have been nice if they had a bar near the pool for drinks, and some sort of padding on the lounge chairs.

The resort is very close to Magic Kingdom. It took us about 10 minutes to get there. There are also a lot of restaurants nearby, and its about 5 minutes from the town of celebration.

Overall, it was a good trip. I'm just not sure if I would stay here again, since I have been to much better resorts in Orlando/Kissimmee. Do your research before you stay here. You may find better options.
