We stayed at this resort from 16th October thru 30th October and had a wondeful time.
Apartment - Having read a number of reviews from people that were there the same time as us I'm sorry to hear they had problems with bugs etc as we had no such issues.
We were in Building 12 708A&B units. The units were clean and spacious. We took the larger of the two units - A side and the children had their own unit - B side.
Pools - The pools are well maintained with good quality loungers and free pool towels. The hot tubs are excellent and Hot! There is a new pool that is much larger than some of the others towards the back of the resort and we tended to visit this pool. You will find with some of the pools if you are staying all day that you may end up chasing the sun as you start to get shaded by the buildings as the sun moves round.
Location - The location of this resort is excellent. You are on the 192 right opposite Celebration (which is well worth a visit). You are a minute away from the I4 and yet you don't hear any noise. You're very close to Disney and only 15 mins away from the Universal Parks. We bought the flexiticket this year and didn't do Disney and had no trouble travelling to the Universal Parks.
Downside - The only downside to this resort is that they do not offer free WiFi. If the could sort this then it would be fantastic.
Great holiday and we will definitely be back to Vacation Village at Parkway in future years.
