SUPER 8 MOTEL - ORLANDO/NEAR UNIVERSAL: If you book here do not use a Credit Card
Do not use your credit/debit card here. They double charged my card and told me that one charge was only a hold until after I checked out. Upon returning home it was still their so I disputed it with my credit card company. The Super 8 management lied to them and said I had rented 10 rooms and that was the charge. So I had to have my card canceled and place a fraud alert on it. Don’t stay here and if you do don’t use a credit card.
The room was good for the price with a nice swimming pool to cool off in. Also it was close the attractions.

Disney's Pop Century Resort: A great value resort at Walt Disney World
We loved our stay at Disney's Pop Century Resort - so much so that if we ever go back to WDW, I'd probably want to stay there again. Pop Century is the most recent of the Disney value resorts and it pays tribute to American pop culture from the 1950s to the 1990s. We had a great time just walking around the resort and spotting all the pop culture icons, from a giant foozball game to giant Mr. & Mrs. Potato Head. Our room was quite comfortable and well-designed to accomodate a party of four. We were also amazed at how quiet it was! We stayed in the 80s section, so the computer pool was right around the corner - it's a huge pool and the water was deliciously warm - but we also had access to the resort's two other pools.
We had breakfast at the hotel everyday (see my tip on Everything Pop), did some shopping at the huge gift shop and spent a couple hours at the arcade. When we felt like getting away from all the action, it was also possible to go for a nice walk along Hourglass Lake. The entire resort was very well maintained and incredibly clean, and the staff (or "cast members" as they call them at Disney) were always helpful and friendly. I'd recommend staying there in a heartbeat!
We loved the fact that the pool was open until midnight - it gave us a chance to cool down and unwind after a busy day at one of the theme parks. We also very much enjoyed the music that was playing throughout the resort, from Buddy Holly to the Backstreet Boys!

Holiday Inn Lake Buena Vista, Fl: Great Hotel for Disney/Seaworld vacation
We visited Disney May 2-6 this year with a 9 yr old. Presonally we found the parkhopper to be a waste of money. One day in each park is quite enough. The longest lines were for character pictures. We stayed at Animal kingdom for 4 nights and it was very nice but expensive. The Disney hotels are huge and there is too much walking to get from one place to another. We would not stay again. Disney transportion is great but some of the hotels outside disney have free transportation to and from the disney parks if you do not want to drive and they are very nice and reasonably priced. We also have stayed at Holiday Inn express in Lake Vista (very close to everything) and it was great clean with comfortable beds plus a great pool with a slide thru a waterfall and hot breakfast! I lucked up and got a great deal thru expedia. ( $67 including tax ) I have many suggestions on restaurants in that area and inside the disney parks too if you are interested.
Tip: I found tourguidemike.com and mouseears.com helpful
The pool is beautiful but a little small. However it was not crowded when we were there.

Great place to stay. even if you are not in to Golf on holiday. Very large complex as most things are in the states, but do not be but off by this.Great pools,parking good condo rooms had it all ! Not far from all shops and food places on 192 highway.Closer to Disney parks than Seaworld and universal parks,But still only a short car ride to International Drive, however so much more to do.
This year May 2009 , i have found it hard to find a booking in Mystic Dunnes at a resonable price 2008 we paid £480 FOR 1 WK .This year have to go direct with Mystic Dunnes £750.tHE RESORT IS GREAT.it is a time share place so watch out for those 2 hour tour that turn in to 6hours of sell, sell ,sell.!

Seralago Hotel: Clean Inexpensive Hotel
This was a clean, inexpensive hotel. Looks like it used to be a Days Inn or something along those lines. They kept the pool and hot tub open until midnight. When you don't get back from the parks until late, you normally don't get to go sit in the hot tub or go swimming. We did not eat at the buffet but it looked good. Had a fridge.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone who is looking for a good basic hotel in Kissimmee/Disney area. Very convenient to Disney/shopping/restaurants and other attractions.
Pool and hot tub open till midnight! They did not the rooms around the pool unless you specifically asked for it so that the noise would not disturb guests.

Saratoga Springs Resort and Spa: Good Location and Great Stay
Saratoga Springs is one of the newer Disney Resorts. It is also part of Disney's Vacation Club Time Share program. The resort is located right across from the Disney Marketplace and Pleasure Island. You can walk or ride a cute ferry to either attraction. We have stayed at this resort together twice; most recently for a special celebration.
The resort itself has a main building that houses the spa, dining area, gift shop and main pool. The rest of the resort is grouped into sections with it's own pool area in the center. Since this is a vacation club property there are kitchens in the rooms (the studios just have a toaster, microwave, sink and ridge). There are studios, one bedroom, two bedroom and three bedroom suites available. The three bedrom suite is a two level townhouse style suite complete with full dining room vaulted ceilings and laundry facilities in the suite.
We always request rooms was in the Congress Park section of the resort (it is closer to the walkway and has nicer views) and had a nice balcony with views of Pleasure Island and the Marketplace. It also provided nice views of the fireworks at night. The them of the resort is Saratoga Springs New York and horse racing. The furnishings are a light cherry wood with a Victorian flair. Hidden Mickeys can be found on the couch fabric and furniture(Liz had a blast pointing these things out). Shuttle buses have stops throughout the resort to pick up guests and take them to the various Disney Parks.
We have stayed in both studio and suites. The studios are spacious but I prefer the suite with its full kitchen and large jacuzzi tub.
We spent time at the spa which was incredible and at the pool in our resort section. The main pool was just a bit too crowded with kids. It's a nice resort and I will definitly stay again.
The spa is a main attraction. There is nothing better than a spa treatment when on vacation.
I like that the resort has a walkway to Downtown Disney as well as shuttle busses and a water shuttle. Taking an evening stroll to the Marketplace is always a nice way to unwind before grabbing a meal, shopping or heading off to Pleasure Island.

VistaPark Resort: An excellent 10 person villa with pool
We stayed here for our two week holiday in Orlando and used the villa as a base to get around to all the theme parks and the Everglades.
The villa had five Bedrooms, four of which were ensuite with double beds and one adjoining with two singles. It had a huge open plan downstairs with a good kitchen area and a breakfast table. There was also a large dinner table, and a tv sofa area.
The pool was outside and was made part of the house by the covering insect mesh.
There were seven adults in our party and the villa was excellent. I would definitely stay here again. It was a very spacious place with good local amenities. Publix supermarket was just a short drive away as was Applebees.
As with all things in Orlando, you'll need a rental car. The villa has a huge double garage.
A quiet place which was nice to come back to after a busy day in the theme parks.
The pool area which was a nice place to chill out and watch the fireworks in the sky!

Travelodge Maingate: Budget Accomodation, yet spacious room?
Travelodge is a recommended place. Recently went to Orlando, stayed in Travelodge. Price below USD80 and room is spacious. The place itself is quite old but clean. With that price, the room can stay in 4 person maximum. What else you want to ask for?

Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel: A large comfortable hotel near EPCOT
The Dolphin is a large convention hotel in Walt Disney World. It is part of a two-hotel combo (the other being the Swan) which share an impressive complex of restaurants and recreational facilities (four swimming pools, tennis courts, heath clubs, spas, etc.).
The Dolphin has a great location, being only a 5-minute walk from the Boardwalk and only a 15-minute walk from EPCOT. There are also buses and boats from the Dolphin to the Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, and other Disney theme parks.
Although it is in the Disney resort property, the Dolphin is owned by Starwood, and is comparable to their Sheraton brand of hotels in terms of rooms and services. The rooms were fine, although not as nice as some of the truly upscale resort hotels in Disney, such as the Grand Floridian. However, one must keep in mid that the Dolphin is much less expensive ($200-250 per night) than the nearby upscale Disney resort hotels, which cost $350 per night and up. The staff was friendly. We had no problems checking in or out, and the bell desk was helpful. Because of the hotel's large size, the concierge desk can get backed up, which was our only complaint from the service side.
Overall, we were happy with our stay at the Dolphin and would stay there again.

Orlando/Orange County Convention & Visitors Bureau: Try it. You might like it!
The Orlando area must have about a jillion hotel/motel rooms. Depending on how much you enjoy scheduling your travels on the edge (or for whatever reason you happen to arrive in the Orlando area without a room reservation), you may want to visit the Official Visitor Center of the Orlando/Orange County Convention & Visitors Bureau. They maintain a rather unique service which they call the "Black Book." This book is renewed each day and contains a list of discounted hotel and motel rooms phoned in by the hotels and motels when they realize that they are going to be underbooked for the evening. The center is open every day except Christmas day but I do not remember the hours. The room rates are usually seriously discounted from normal rack rates.

Disney's Fort Wilderness Campground and Resort: NOW THAT'S A CABIN
Rich and I had one heck of a time finding a Disney resort to stay at that could accommodate all 6 of us without having to split up into 2 rooms. We were relieved when we found the cabin option at the Fort Wilderness Campground. We were even more relieved when we arrived and found how large and pretty the cabins are. Our cabin was basically a bedroom with a set of bunk beds and a full size bed, a bathroom, a kitchen and a living room/2nd bedroom with a pull down full size bed. Patrick, Sebastian and Thaddeus didn't take long to decide that they wanted to sleep in the living room on the pull down bed and the sofa, so Rich and I got the full size bed in the bedroom and Gryphon got the bottom bunk. All the beds were ultra comfortable and roomy. The bathroom had enough towels, wash clothes and hand towels for our little army and they were nice towels, not the usual hotel crap one gets at a hotel. The kitchen had a cute table with bench seating for all and was completely stocked with dishes, cups, pots, pans, coffee pot, brooms, mops and even a vacuum. I have to admit that we didn't take advantage of the cooking facilities. Fort Wilderness has 3 different bus lines to help visitors navigate around the camp ground. The kids new by the end of the trip which bus we needed to ride whether it was Settlement Purple, Outpost Purple, Outpost Orange or Settlement Yellow. They were experts by the end. From the campgrounds you can catch buses to all the Dinsey Parks (Hollywood Studios, The Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, Epcot, Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach). The campground also has its own set of restaurants and activities for the little ones. Each night there is a campfire sing along and a movie. Guests also can take a horse and carriage ride or visit the campgrounds petting zoo. The trail rides are located here as well as the Hoop Dee Doo Musical Review.

PatricksVilla: Beautiful Vacation Villa with pool on Golf-Course
When trawling through the internet there were so many beautiful villas to choose from in Orlando and Patricks Villa was no exception. What we did not realise when we booked was that there would be an outstanding support service alongside. No question or query was considered to be too small. All were answered immediately and often with added information and guidance even if that meant Dirk Ufer searching the local Walmart for goats milk.
The villa was exactly as described on the website no hidden difficulties it is well stocked with all that any family would need. My granddaughter adored the childrenâ€™s room and the soft toys. The stroller was a bonus because it was the only yellow handled one in Disney and when you are trying to pick yours out amongst so many looking for the yellow was so easy.
Thank you so much for making our holiday perfect a beautiful villa and a surety that if we needed help it would be there instantly.
If you are considering booking Patricks Villa consider no longer, book, you will not be disappointed
