At the end of April, my husband & I rented a car in Ft. Lauderdale after a 10 day cruise. We didn't want to eat in restaurants after 10 days of ship food so the condo's kitchen was much appreciated. We bought groceries from SuperWalmart about 2 miles away. We drove every day so you really need a car for this resort. Covered parking was always available. There are 2 balconies; a private one that overlooks Lake Bryan and a common one that overlooks the street and Disney World. We were 14 floors up so we had good views of the nightly fireworks. The buildings and grounds were kept very well and any time we had questions or minor problems they were dealt with immediately. The only downsides were: 1. no safe in the room 2. no condiments/salt & pepper/etc. in the kitchen so I kept our menus pretty simple(there was 2 packets for coffee). Be sure to turn on your icemaker asap so that you have ice a few hours later. I would and have recommended this condo to others.
