Stayed here the end of January.
Went with family including kids 13, 12, 10. Had a two bedroom unit. Was very nice place, about a ten minute drive max to universal islands of adventure, sea world.
Check in was about 11pm and was easy. Not sure how it would be during the day.
Resort seemed pretty empty when we went. Not sure i would like when full as parking is limited.
For the price a great place to stay. Full kitchen, two bathrooms, etc. much better than a motel and not any more expensive than a decent hotel.
For area in general:
Lots of places to eat close, that said you want a rental car. Nothing off property within walking distance, but minutes by car.
I know most people don't want to pull kids out of school to go on vacation, but if this is a once in a lifetime or once in several year trip pull them out and go in slow season. Whatever you do don't go over spring break or Christmas. I would imagine summer time the lines and the heat would be terrible.
We went January 26 to February 2. Weather was perfect. Some mornings we wore a sweatshirt to park. Could take off by noon at latest.
Lines for best rides at park no more then 15 minutes max for the whole week. Some of the coaster rides we could get off and get back in line and back on in minutes. We heard that over Christmas break lines for Harry potter ride were 2-3 hrs. Some said got 6 rides in all day.
