Great accommodations, pushy time share sales.

Pros: The accommodations were great and rooms were nice.
Cons: Stop pushing the time shares on your guest. When your guest decline the offer, leave them alone.
Location: Obviously, you have Disney World, Sea World, etc. We did take the trip to the Pulse nightclub to pay our respects to those that lost their lives.
Loved the room, accommodations and staff. We were asked daily about attending their time share seminar, which we had turned down early on our stay but they persistently asked. Also, there were tiny black ants, which were more of a nuisance than anything.

Great family friendly resort!

Pros: Full kitchen, grills on site and all the tools needed to cook a meal. (free) Laundry on site. Tons of amenities!
Cons: The combined living/dining room was a little small but we were in a one bedroom suite. I'm sure the larger rooms have a spacious living room.
Location: Very close to the parks, Disney Springs, Citywalk and tons of restaurants. But, you definitely need a car to get around!
The resort has a full activity calendar to engage all of their guests, including small children. The pools were nice and there was a park and small mini golf area. We went in early May, which I assume is a slow season in Orlando. So, my only concern would be the amount of people in the pools if the hotel had more guests. Otherwise, a great place and we had a lot of fun!

The condos exceeded expectations.

We rented four condos in order to attend a cheerleading competition located on Hotel Plaza Boulevard and Buena Vista Dr. These condos were less than 10 minutes away. The two bedroom condos were like living in house. We had a master bedroom with a double closet, two sinks, shower and spa tub. The second bedroom has a combination shower/tub. There was a laundry room, full kitchen, dining area and living room. The condo was spacious and could be easily shared by six people, if someone had been willing to sleep on the pull out couch in the living room. The outdoor patio was spacious and connected to the living room and master bedroom. The onsite deli/grocery store was very convenient and served good food. The pools were great and we enjoyed the dive-in movie. We would definitely stay here again. It was very cleaned. One of the families moved the twin beds together to make a queen bed and under the bed was extremely clean. We wouldn't change anything about our stay.

right in the heart of the Disney experience

Pros: location, family atmoshere
Cons: pool and poolside cleanliness could be improved greatly. need to have staff attend to during the day for tune-ups.
Location: restaurants, shops, Disney all nearby.
the resort was fine, but the timeshare pressure is extreme.

Very Nice Resort, but NOT a Hotel.

Location: DisneyWorld, Orlando Studios
It was very clean & the grounds were well kept. There were many activities for families (mini-golf, games, nightly activities, an arcade at a sister property, several pools, ping pong, a jacuzzi or 2, etc.) if you just want to hang out at the resort for a day. We would definitely visit again. There are two issues I had that are not bad enough to lower my score, but still big enough to pass on. 1) Make sure you realize that it's not a hotel, but a condo type experience, i.e., no daily housekeeping and you need to purchase or bring supplies like toilet paper. (Upon check-out the concierge did tell me we could have asked for more of supplies, but since there wasn't maid service and there were notes about "these supplies will get you started," we assumed that would not be the case.) It wasn't a deal breaker, but it was a surprise. I rechecked the listing and it definitely sounds like a regular resort hotel, not like a rental apartment or condo. 2) The space under the doors (2) between us and our adjoining neighbors was pretty big. I stuck a towel under the door to help muffle some of the sound of their crying child, their dryer (?) tumbling something metallic, etc. Maybe seal it up a little better?
