“Wonderful place”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

This is a beautiful place manned by friendly, smiling staff. Gardens and pool are gorgeous, and the rooms are very spacious and clean. Breakfast is alright--healthy options include oatmeal and fruit. Coffee is very poor for anyone who likes a robust taste but there is a nearby Arab-owned cafe in the smaller outlet shopping mall that has great coffee if you are desperate! You need a car to get anywhere from here but it is a great central location for all things Disney. Karen in Guest Services is a rock star. I had no map or GPS but with her help, I got to everything I needed to--including a wedding, an airboat alligator tour, and Clearwater Beach on the Gulf Coast.

Room Tip: Our room was in Bldg 5 and very quiet. Would not want to be right in front of pool area.

Dear AliceinOttawa,

Thank you for your kind comments! (Incidentally, the coffee you mentioned that we serve at the continental breakfast is Maxwell House).
And we agree with you that Karen, our ticket concierge is a rock star! She is so supportive and helpful in assisting guests with all of their needs and inquiries. She also helps with local advice regarding "things you should know".

Again, thank you for your comments!

Awesome place. We had the three bedroom and two baths. Fantastic. We had family of four and grandparents. Full kitchen, four TV's with a great price. Beds very comfortable. Pool was great too. If you are going to Disney we were 10-15 minutes from parking spot to parking spot depending on the park. Will stay again.

Room Tip: You need coffee filters for the coffee maker and dishwasher soap.

I had booked a 3 bed 2 bath, we were assigned the apartment in the last building of the resort which is quite far from the main building. It looks more like a clean apartment, for the price paid I could have got a premium hotel room. It would work for large groups but we were disappointed. Breakfast is very minimal and there no places to eat around the area. You must have a car as nothing is close to this resort. Also they do no cleaning at all, you have to sign up for 40$ per day service.

Dear RajNYC,

Thank you for your comments. I apologize that your stay with us did not meet your expecations. Most guests prefer our fully furnished 2 & 3 bedroom apartments to a common hotel room. Also, our square-footage (from 1,100 to 1,400 sq ft) usually tip the scales in our favor. I understand that not all guests have the same needs, but I do hope you will visit us again when in Orlando.

Respectfully,

Staying a week with two young teens, opted for WorldQuest instead of a motel room and were very glad we did; it was maybe a couple of hundred pounds more expensive than a decent motel, but the suite was amazing, huge and spotlessly clean. Two big bedrooms, nice bathrooms, 3 large televisions, kitchen, washer dryer and so on - seems a bit of a waste if spending all day at the parks but really nice to come back to a "home from home" and have lots of space. The resort is huge, felt guilty driving to breakfast each morning, but when in Rome......... Pool was nice - clean and warm - but a long walk or drive if you're staying in the furthest blocks.

Used the Disney shuttle on one day, wish we'd driven ourselves instead, had to stand up on the way and wait 3/4 hour in the cold and rain on the way back, not a big deal, just mentioning it as advice for others.

What really needs sorting out is the breakfast - quality and quantity is great, variety is fair and the two ladies who look after it all are superstars. The issue is the ridiculously small space, 5 tables indoors and a few outdoors. By eight o'clock, the area resembles Delhi railway station with people jostling for muffins, fighting over orange juice and perched on every available surface if not sat on the floor. One day, 3 of the 5 tables were occupied by a group of painting contractors in painty overalls which I found a little odd. I suppose it is just about conceiveable that they were guests staying at the resort for some reason but assuming otherwise, the WorldQuest management needs to consider carefully whether a 5* resort should allow 60% of its seating capacity to be occupied by contractors instead of guests or indeed whether contractors should use these areas at all; I can't think it would be allowed to happen anywhere else.

Dear GF 158,

Thank you for your comments!
I am pleased that you enjoyed the resort, and thank you for your comments regarding our light breakfast. I would like to suggest a tip -- to enjoy the breakfast prior to 9am daily -- you would then most likely avoid the busiest time.
Regarding the painting contractors at breakfast, they were actually guests at the resort. They stayed with us for a few weeks. Please note that we would ensure that guest areas would only be enjoyed by guests!

Again, I am pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us.

Sincerely,

It's a good stay, but you must either drive or hire a car to get around, the shuttle bus is very limited and was packed. It was a busy time and very expensive taxi rides everywhere. The pool is lovely and the pool bar was fabulous, but rarely open which was disappointing. The breakfast is pretty much 100% sugar. Just go forewarned and prepared.

Room Tip: Go for the top floor if you can, walls and floors are paper thin!

Dear Happywalkabout,

I am glad you enjoyed your stay with us. And I agree with you that renting a car would be the best option if you want to visit around Orlando. Although we are only 5 minutes by car from Disney, we are in a secluded natural area that is actually one of our best attributes -- but quite a walk to area restaurants!

Also, our pool bar is open seasonally, and during the winter we open it whenever the air temperature will reach 65 degrees or higher (weather permitting). Below 65 degrees the pool is usually quite empty. We keep the pool temp at 80 degrees though, for those adventurous enough to brave the cool air.

I hope you will visit us again on your next trip to Orlando.

Sincerely,

Tim P. Gross

I really liked the room, and I recommend this hotel specially if you are a family. The staff were helpful . Breakfast, actually it's not breakfast unless if you call coffee with muffin and cereal a breakfast. Again I really liked the room. If you have a car, the location will be superb for you, five minutes to 10 minutes of most of the attraction at Orlando.

My husband, 3 year old daughter, my parents, and I just spend 3 days at WorldQuest. It was absolutely fantastic.

We stayed in a 3 bedroom, 3 bath and it was honestly like home away from home. So spacious, well equipped, comfortable, and clean. We were in building 2, room 104, which was a first floor unit overlooking the pool. It was nice and quiet, despite being right near the (sometimes very busy) pool. The beds were comfortable and the Jacuzzi bathtub was a nice added bonus, especially after walking around the parks for two full days.

This place is so close to Disney, only a couple of miles. It's set back, away from all of the craziness, in a very quiet spot. You cannot ask for a better location AND a better value. We found this place on TravelZoo.com for only $119/nt which is a ridiculous steal. (I even saw the two bedrooms for $89/nt!)

The breakfast is fine, unless you need a full, hot meal...then just run to the store and cook it in your full sized kitchen in the unit! :) The pool is huge and the hottub was nice for the cool evenings. The Tiki bar has a nice little happy hour with a great menu if you're wanting a light meal.

The critics stating that this isn't a "true resort"...I'm not sure what they're looking for exactly. No, there are not any restaurants, nor is there entertainment on site, but you're within 5 minutes of downtown Disney and SO many other restaurants/attractions. If you want a loud atmosphere, overpriced, mediocre food and a cheesy gift shop...no, this isn't the place for you!

I would recommend this place to anyone. No complaints. Staff was great as well. We'll be back on our next Disney weekend!

Room Tip: Building 2 was great. Right near the pool and the lobby!
