My son and I stayed in Vacation Village at Parkway 10/1/05 to 10/8/05. It was terrific and I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again. We paid $229 for the week and found it through a Travelzoo special with RCI. Great bargain, as this room could easily have gone for $65+/night.
Our accomodation was a third floor 1 BR w/ "partial kitchen," which was more than adequate for us. I would call it an efficiency apartment. The BR and the living room each have a cable TV and VCR. You can shut the BR doors for privacy or watching different programs. We cooked many meals and fully used the 2 burner hotplate, electric skillet and pots and pans. The silverware, plates, cups, glasses etc. all matched and were clean. Having a fully equipped partial kitchen was a pleasant surprise. The linens, blankets, towels were all more than sufficient. We had an end unit and did not ever hear other guests whatsoever. The little patio is perfect for coffee in the morning, the living room and furnishings were all current and like new. Our unit included a stackable washer/dryer, again a very useful convenience. The combo microwave/convection oven was clean and like new and functioned perfectly. Space is utilized throughout efficiently and the bathroom is more spacious than usual.
The other people staying here were friendly and welcoming. We spent time at the pool and visited Disneyworld 3 days, only about 5 minutes away. We did not avail ourselves of the fish fry meals, games and craft activities scheduled daily but were pleased to find them as an option. One of the pools was closed for painting of the buildings but the other pool is plenty big and it was not a problem.
Check-in was pleasant and quick. They've built an easy to find new welcome/check-in center right off Arabian Nights Blvd at Hwy 192. I arrived late, about midnight, and called ahead per their request. Several staff were manning the counters and processed me courteously and without delay. Any sales pitch was non-existent. This is a well-run organization which clearly listens to the concerns of the guests. I would consider myself lucky to find this caliber of a deal again during my next trip.
