Since becoming a father I have been dreading the obligatory Disney World visit but am pleased to report that the Grand Vista eased the pain somewhat by providing a quiet oasis away from the madness of the Parks. We took a one bedroom unit and our 2 small children shared the sofabed. The room was large and the kitchen (and washer dryer) was put to good use. The pools were OK and not too crowded even though we stayed during Easter. The complex is huge but very quiet. We did have a couple of minor issues with housekeeping but I assume they were very busy during Easter and they did respond well to our requests. As is so often the case in America the staff and service was great. I would certainly visit again.
We spent three days at Disney and one at SeaWorld and thought that they were both very expensive and of course packed. Our children loved every minute. The only advice I can give is plan your day, prioritise the rides that you would like to do and go early. We had some success at Magic Kingdom before midday, after which the lines were brutal. The organisation of the car park is very well done.
Finally my wife loved the Premium Outlets Mall at the South end of International Drive which (especially for Euro based travelers) offered great deals on designer gear.
