My family took a trip to Orlando to take our preschooler to Disney World for the first time and booked 4 nights in a 1BR deluxe unit at Wyndham Bonnet Creek using timeshare points from a family member. Overall it was a good stay and during the total 7 nights of our trip we stayed at 3 different Wyndham resorts. Unfortunately, we liked Bonnet Creek the least. First, there's the concierge parking pass hassle, which as other reviewers have pointed out is a bit frustrating when you've been traveling and all you want to do is get to your room and relax. It is an obvious sales pitch so it's not the typical concierge experience one expects at a hotel. I think of the concierge as the trip advisor at your hotel but when confronted to attend a timeshare sales presentation and pressured repeatedly after saying "no" it tends to make one not want to call the concierge for anything during the rest of the stay. After several declines we finally got our parking pass and went to our room in Tower 5 on the 12th floor. It was a nice, circular layout, with a Jacuzzi tub, full kitchen, and balcony overlooking the pool/lake (no we couldn't see the fireworks but we didn't care because we were going to see them at Disney anyway). However, it was quite stuffy when we entered and it was obvious that the A/C had not been on. There was a sign that it didn't operate when the balcony door was open, which made sense, but it also seemed to be motion activated or something because we would have the balcony door closed and locked at night while we were sleeping and would get hot half-way through the night because the A/C would shut off, but once we walked through the living room it would cut on, and it did this same thing when we spent the whole day away from the room at Disney. On the bright side the room did cool off quickly once the air cut on. The king-size bed was relatively low to the floor and the sofa was uncomfortable to sit on, maybe because it was a sofa sleeper. The full kitchen was nice but not as nice as Panama City Beach or Beach Street Cottages (the other two resorts we stayed in during our trip) because the counters were traditional rather than granite and the layout and amenities weren't as classy. During check-out there was a shortage of luggage carts to carry things to the car and neither the building or front desk staff seemed interested in helping the situation. There were quite a few folks using multiple carts to carry a few things and no one was there to manage it nor did they care to. Disney was great, of course, and the resort grounds were beautiful. We loved the pool and hot tub and enjoyed walking the grounds. We will definitely stay at Bonnet Creek again for the simple closeness factor to Disney, but out of the three resorts we stayed in during our trip it was our least favorite.
