Holiday Inn Main Gate East: Great accommodations and fantastic staff!
I used to stay at this hotel with my family when it was a Travelodge. Wow have they made improvements! My new husband and I stayed here on our honeymoon and couldn't have been more pleased. The hotel was clean and had a very pleasant atmosphere with bright colors and fun decorations.
Upon check-in, we were upgraded to a suite when the staff member found out we were honeymooning with them. We didn't even know it until we got to the room and opened our door. The rest of our stay was filled with hello's and smiles from all the employees.
We really enjoyed the pool area and the hot tub. It was great to have a place to relax after a long day in the theme parks! They have showers available in a building by the pool for anyone that would like to use them.
We also loved the drink bottles they had for $3.99. They were good for free refills on pop for your entire stay! What a money-saver!
The breakfast buffet is probably the only thing I would advise against. Not very many options and a steepish price made us regret getting it one morning.
The view of Irlo Bronson Memorial Hwy. and Old Town across the street were very pretty at night. The pool was nice and was only slightly chilly for it being October. Also, they are a Disney's Good Neighbors hotel so you can purchase tickets there at a discounted rate and it's sanctioned by the parks.

Mystic Dunes Resort Orlando, FL: The Largest, Most Economical, & Beautiful Resort
My family stayed at the Mystic Dunes Resort. It was only minutes from WDW and we had over 2200 sq ft! Our bill for 5 days was only $900, which includes 11% tax. We got the 3 bedroom suite, which is enough room for 12 people. You could easily get the 2 bedroom suite and cut costs. They had a 52" flat screen in the main living area. It is situated on hundreds of acres of golfing. The linens were white and super comfortable! We had two full kitchens, two full living areas, three full baths, and so much more. They have a free shuttle running every day. They have 4 heated pools with a 2 story slide at one. We loved it!

Disney's Port Orleans - French Quarter: Good place to stay
There's so much to decide on when picking where to stay at WDW. The places that access the parks the best are the most expensive. The cheapest are still decent quality - but the bus rides can take forever. We ended up choosing a middle ground with the POFQ. We were closer to the parks (still had to take a bus), but didn't have to pay the top $ onsite.
(When figuring the cost of staying onsite, recall that with the bus system, you likely won't need to rent a car, take a cab, etc. if you plan on staying onsite the whole time.)
The complex is fairly sprawling - there are seven buildings that house rooms. The theme, of course, is the Big Easy and Mardis Gras.
In the center of the complex are all the amenities - the bus stop, a food court style restaurant, arcade, fairly good sized gift shop, and pool. The bus stop is a little of a free for all. Buses pull up with a sign as to where they are going and everyone tries to cram on. We never did stop anywhere else however, as most of the buses filled up here. The food court is a solid choice for breakfast - you'll usually be out and about for other meals. The arcade is small and extremely expensive. The pool area is cool - nothing too deep, but lots of chairs, a waterfall, and a waterslide. Kids had a great time.
The hotel is also on the Sassagoula River. There's a walking path along this where you can walk to the Port Orleans Riverside, and also you can catch a boat here to Downtown Disney if you get tired of the buses. Note the boats can get full later in the day, so you may have a wait.
The rooms are in great condition, and the cleaning staff does a wonderful job, including leaving little "towel animals" for the kids. Rooms have refrigerators, safes, and I really like the curtain between the sink and sleeping areas - made it nice to get going in the morning without waking everyone. My understanding is they recently remodeled quite a bit - the beds seemed newer and led to very good night's sleep.
The staff is friendly, check-in and -out were very easy. All in all, this was a really good choice, especially for our first time there. Not the cheapest place, but a good balance of all you can get.

vacation village: rip off
made reservations with expedia.we got to the resort and were told it would cost 20.00 dollars more then we were told when we booked it.as we were deciding what to do the clerk said if you don't want it you wont be charged anything so we decided not to take it as it was the principle of charging more.we found a cheaper place to stay down the road.when I got my bank statement the next month i saw the resort took 75.00 out.i called to get it cleared up assuming they made a mistake.they said it was a no show fee.i told her we did show up.was told it would cost more and told there would be no charge if we didn't take it.she said they charge a no show fee like what I said meant nothing to bad that's the way it is.I emailed the reort and expedia with no result or anything back.what a surprise
never saw more then the lobby

Self Catering House in Kissimmee
We wanted the freedom to be able to come and go as we please, as well as to have our own space, so we booked into a 4 bed house with a pool in a gated community in Kissimmee. It wasn't overly expensive, in fact, it was really great value we thought.
The kids could play in the pool, while we chilled out on sun loungers. When we weren't going out for the day, it was the perfect place to go back to or relax in. It gave us the chance to go shopping and fill the fridge with stuff from the supermarkets that we couldn't get in the UK, like cheese filled hot dog sausages that my daughter just loved, and doughnuts in a thousand and more varieties :)

mystic dunnes.orlando.kissimee: mystic dunnes, golf and spa
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.!
pool , slide in pool , location

Disney's Coronado Springs Resort: Disney's BEST Resort Pool!!
We were VERY Pleased with our Room here at Coronado Springs! The Room was quiet and the beds were SO comfortable! We also enjoyed a nice Mother's Day Dinner at the resorts restaurant, The Mayan Grill. The pool was the best part!Especially for the Kids. They have a HUGE Jaguar Water Slide and a Hot Tub! The play area was great too filled with lots of sand, swings and a slide. I really appreciated how thoughtful this resort is of smokers! usually i have to hunt for a place to smoke, but there were smoking sections EVERYWHERE! and the staff cleans the ashtrays every time you turn around! We will definitely be returning!
Water Slide at Pool and Numerous Smoking Sections for Smokers.
