We found out about Silver Lake Resort through CF Appreciation, we stayed from November 30th till December 7thand booked through AFVC. Before booking, we tend to read most of the reviews that people write (good or bad) about our intended accommodations. A week before we left I called the reservation department to confirm that we had the 2 bedroom and if it was possible to have it on the second floor and in building 800 or 1000. When we got there we had the 2 bedroom we asked for and it was in building 800 on the second floor. The people at reception were very pleasant and the room they gave us was beautiful and clean (see pictures). The magnetic keys were a bit temperamental, but with a little patience the doors would eventually open. There was only one day that I needed security to open up the safe and within 2 minutes they were at my door.
The grounds are clean and also we had the small pool right in front of our building which was very clean. The location of the resort was a plus as it was so close to Walt Disney World (Animal Kingdom was literally a stone’s throw from building 1000) and a Super Target was about 2 km away you can’t go wrong.
If you are a Canadian Military with a family and are thinking of going to Orlando on vacation I would recommend staying at this resort, the price is hard to beat. When we reserved, the request was for a two bedroom, 6 person units. Maybe this is why we found it relatively quiet, the only time we really heard other guest was in the corridors.
If you are looking for a spot to party I wouldn’t recommend Silver Lake, the ambience is more relaxed, but if you are thinking of a central location to relax and regroup while visiting the theme parks this is the place. If you’re one of those people that need to be plugged in to the internet it will cost an additional $27, but if you just want to check out some info on the internet you can get 30min time slots at the guest services location.
We would recommend this resort to our friends.
