My husband's friend offered us a week of his time share, this is how we ended up at Mystic Dunes from March 23-30, 2013. My family and I have been talking about visiting Disney for quite a while now so we figured we'd take advantage of this generous offer. In terms of the condo, I knew what I wanted, especially after reading all of the reviews on TA.(Thanks everybody!) My girls (7,9) wanted to be near the lagoon pool, I wanted top floor for quiet and a renovated suite. We checked in around 11:00 and our condo was ready for us. The girl at the check-in was less than friendly and handed over our keys before I even had a chance to request anything. I was hoping to upgrade to a 2 bedroom but they were completely overbooked so a 1 bedroom would have to do. I asked for a renovated unit and she told me none of the units have been renovated yet which I found strange because everybody on TA wrote about the renovated rooms. We took the keys and went to check out the condo. It was near a smaller pool which was nice and on a top floor so that made me happy. When I opened the door, I was totally disgusted! The appliances in the kitchen that were suppossed to be white, yellowed over time and the whole place just very dated. I knew that I wouldn't be happy here for a week. After going out for lunch, we returned to the main desk
and made sure to speak to someone else. I ended up talking to the manager and she offered us another condo, this one "refurbished". I asked her why was I told that no units have been renovated yet and she told me that the staff have to say that because Diamond (who recently took over) hasn't started renovating units. The "refurbished units" were fixed up about 2 years ago by the previous owner of the property. That was good enough for me! The unit we enede up in was a 1 bedroom in building 16 with a modern kitchen, beautiful appliances, newer bathroom and comfy beds. I really wanted a 2 bedroom however the space was quite large and we were very comfortable.
Overall we were very happy at Mystic Dunes. The property is huge and well maintained. My kids loved the heated pool and the proximity to the parks is incredible; under 10 minutes when you take Sherberth Rd. The 192 is kind of a cheesy strip with many fast food restaurants and gift shops however the Super Target and the Publix were great. We came for the parks and the parks were amazing! My girls had the time of their lives, despite record low temperatures. We are looking forward to returning to the Disney area in the near future and yes, I would consider staying at Mystic Dunes again!
