“Good Location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

Stayed from 29th December - 11th January. Perfect location for all the parks and I Drive. Front desk very helpful as they let us check in early. We had a problem with the safe but it was fixed within minutes. Spacious apartments with comfortable beds. (5 adults) Had no problems with any 'bugs' or cleanliness. Sufficient equipment in the kitchen. Flat screen TV in living room but older ones in the bedrooms. Washer (new) and dryer worked well. Enough storage for clothes and suitcases!!
We had a ground floor which overlooked reception and one of the pools. Did not have a problem with noise from the 192.
The pools were heated and the hot tub was brilliant, especially New Years Eve, and they were available until 11.00pm (bonus). Towels were provided and plenty of seating around the pool.
We did not try the breakfast so can't comment on that. There is also a games room and tennis courts and a cash machine in reception.
Lots of shops nearby for provisions although a big Walmart about 10 mins drive west.
Wifi worked well and we had 2 iPads and 3 iPhones !!!
I will agree with the comments about security. I think our permit was only ever checked once. Despite that it always felt 'safe'
Would I go back to Orbit One??
Yes, but maybe not at Christmas. Nothing wrong with the apartments, just the volume of traffic and people and the weather was not as hot as we would have liked.

Room Tip: Any ground room then you don't have to haul suitcases as there's no lift!!

Buildings were run-down, gaps in the front door-jam were pretty big and the dead bolt did not work. Light switches did not work. There was a flattened raisin on the floor not from us. There was dirt and dust in bathrooms. The jacuzzi was old and had dirt floating around and did not work. Kitchen had many small insects crawling around on the counter surface and silverware was not clean. Internet did not work. Washer/dryer old and worn. Main gate was always up with no attendant when we returned from the parks. Wife noticed a dead ROACH in the bathroom light. On night 3 of 7 got back from the parks and saw a large ROACH run from under the bed to behind the curtains. Called front desk for help killing it and 10 minutes later had to call again. A maintenance guy came and killed it with a towel. We asked him if we could switch rooms, he said “they’re all the same” - code for “there are roaches in all the rooms.” Called the front desk again to ask to move but they were closed for the night. All the while we dealt with their personnel they never seemed to care. They moved slowly, seemed bothered we were there or were calling, and never even apologized for the roaches! To everyone out there who had raving reviews about this place, I just don’t get it.

Our family stayed at this hotel from Dec 31- Jan 7. From everything we experienced we loved it. There were 4 adults and the rooms gave us plenty of space. We are Disney travler's and went to the park daily so I am not sure if they offer daytime activities but I know there are no night time ones. However, we liked this because the resort was quiet at night and we let Disney do the entertaining. The room was huge and exceeded our expectations by far! The washer and dryer were brand new and were super efficient and fast. The mattresses were very comfortable. However I do suggest you bring a couple dish washing tabs, garbage bags and bathroom hand soap and everything else is provided. The only thing that was a little strange was it is a gated resort and security was always at the gate. Despite this, every time we drove in the gate was open or they would just open it and not worry who we were. It is in a nice area so I was not concerned but I just thought "'what's the point of security?'. Another thing is the continental breakfast was not worth the walk. We liked cooking for ourselves in the room so don't consider the breakfast a selling feature. The Internet worked great and was fast. But make sure if it says it's included you ask for it or else they don't tell you. We aren't pool people so we never went in. They seemed a little small for the pool enthusiast but would work well for people who just want to cool off.

All and all it was great and very very close to the Disney property. Just down the road is a super target and the miller ale house which is a great and affordable place to dine. Thank you for the great place and great price orbit! We will be back!

Best thing about Orbit One was the value for the money. Great location very close to WDW on the "quiet" side of the resort. Rooms were large and comfortable. Amenities (2 pools, basketball, playground, shuffleboard, etc.) were well-kept and fun to use. Staff was helpful.
Cons - phone system wasn't working properly (calling cards wouldn't work) and there were some small maintenance issues with our suite. So. . . bottom line is that is was well worth the money we paid, and the property is showing it's 30-odd year old age.

Very convenient condo to all the attractions. Made use of the Disney road system to stay out of traffic during Christmas week. Clean large and spacious condo. Need to ask for clean towels and housekeeping if you want it during your stay. Continental breakfast was only available Mon-Fri 8-10 and not worth it. Just packaged donuts and mini muffins. Buy your groceries down the road at the many supermarkets, cook breakfast save time and money. Had problems with their internet system at the condo. Use McDonnell's or Starbucks if you need it. If you need a feather pillow bring your own. I had to buy one at Target's because their pillows were giving me a neck ache. Pool was clean and well heated, a surprising pleasant option because it was a cold week in Florida.

All the units are two bedroom two bath with full kitchen. When traveling with a family having extra space is a plus! This place is nice and was close to all the attractions. One small thing to note while the kitchen does have all dishes and cookware it does not have any staples like salt and pepper. I would brought few things from home, had I known.

that I would stay here again. Now..that being said. This is not a 4 or 5 star ranking. It's just not. No matter what any other review says, it's a 3 star place. It's decent accommodations for an excellent price. The location is great as well. Minutes away from WDW and any dining/shopping you need. It's also away from the mess of traffic along I-4 (east side of WDW).

Pros: Front desk was helpful in the few needs I had. The grounds were excellent. Pool was great. Check in and out was a breeze. Condos are well stocked (small amounts of detergents were provided for dishes and laundry but I bought my own). Beds were very comfortable and linens were excellent. The screened patio was very nice being connected to the living room and the master bedroom separately (well...in our unit it was).

Cons: It's dated. Very dated. I thought for sure my kids would destroy the glass top dining table. The furniture (beds aside) are very cheap and very used. Floors were not visibly dirty but check your socks after a few hours...dirty. There were lots of signs of the condo being very worn but peoples' best efforts to keep things going. The whirlpool bathtub was awesome the first night. After that (very slow drain) it became dirty fast so showers it was lol.

Like I said...I WOULD STAY HERE AGAIN. But these reviews needs to be more honest in that it's a 3 star place at best. If you're looking for more pampering from your lodging, look elsewhere. If you're looking for a spacious, decent place to spend your nights in between Orlando's many attractions this is a good choice.

Room Tip: The waterslide pool can be noisy and late into the night with kids. These rooms are also nearest the...
