This was my second stay at Wyndham’s Bonnet Creek (third if you count my stay last year at the hotel located on property). I stayed from November 27-30, 2012.
I had requested a one bedroom condo in the main building. When I checked in I was told that was not available, but they had a condo for me in the “newly refurbished” building 1, and that it had a “great view.”
The “great view” turned out to be a view of the parking lot.
But other than that, it was fine. It was near the elevator, but due to the size of the condo, I did not hear any noise.
If you’ve read other reviews, you know what’s in the condo. It is a nice size unit.
The resort itself is very nice. They have 5 pools, 2 water slides, 2 lazy rivers, a child splash area, free mini golf, pool tables, exercise room, many activities, etc.
And of course, it is much cheaper to stay here than at a Disney resort. Condos are available at what I would consider bargain prices, from timeshare owners who rent them out. Search around and you will get a bargain.
The resort has an excellent location. It is “inside” Disney World, a few blocks from Downtown Disney, and practically around the corner from Typhoon Lagoon.
I also drove from Bonnet Creek to Universal. This took me 20 minutes on a weekday morning at about 8 am.
Upon arrival, watch out for the “go to the next desk for your parking pass” trick, which is just intended to get you to a timeshare sales presentation. If you do go to the presentation, please—I implore you—before you go, look up prices for a Bonnet Creek timeshare on ebay. I am a Wyndham owner. I went to their new “non-pressure seminar” for owners, for which I was given $100. After the “seminar” the salesman offered me timeshare points at a “dirt cheap price”: $13,000 (Wyndham Cypress Palms). You can get an ownershipon ebay for free, from owners looking to bail out and not pay maintenance fees any more.
Bottom line: Bonnet Creek is a very nice resort, and you can save a lot of money by staying there as opposed to a Disney resort. Of course, you will be giving up the amenities of a Disney resort stay, as well as the “total immersion” Disney experience. If you’re willing to sacrifice those, you will not be disappointed in Bonnet Creek.
