We stayed in the Orlando-Kissimmee International Youth Hostel. It was great. Clean rooms, not expensive and the people who worked there were really cool. Another big plus was that it's situated in a really nice area with lots of space around it. See their website for more info
US$16-19 including linen.

Private Villa: 3 Bedroomed Luxury

We rented a villa for the holiday, I`m not sure who from as my friend booked the holiday. All I know is that we had to drive to another house to pick up the key and then go and find the house we were stopping in on our own. We never actually had any contact after that with the people who ran the place or any need to.

There wasn`t anything around where we were stopping and the nearest bars and shops were a couple of miles away.

Wow where do I start, although the villa was in the middle of a building site it was the best place that I have ever stopped in. There were 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 2 lounges, 2 tv's, a massive kitchen, with huge fridge, a dining area and a small swimming pool.
My wardrobe was big enough for me to sleep in and the garage was big enough to make another bedroom and still have room for the car.

I could quite easily have lived there.

Universal's Royal Pacific Resort - A Loews Hotel: Polynesia within reach

Honestly, I was a tad disappointed with a couple of minor details.
The grounds were great and the price was right for staying on site but...

#1 In a standard room you can get a view of the parking lot with the relaxing sounds of cars on international drive.
#2 The beds were not as comfy as those at Portofino or Hard Rock

It has a great Polynesian theme with nice landscaping.

IF YOU WANT TO MAKE A TRUE...

IF YOU WANT TO MAKE A TRUE DISNEY EXPERIENCE TRY AND STAY AT ONE OF THE HOTLES ON SITE. NOT ONLY DOES IT COMPLETE YOUR MAGICAL EXPERIENCE IT'S HANDY TO. THE DISNEY AREA HAS IT'S OWN TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM AND YOU REALLY WILL ENJOY JUST HOPPING ON A BUS OR MONORAIL TO THE PARK OF YOUR CHIOCE. NO FIGHTING TRAFFIC AND NO PAYING FOR PARKING AT THE PARKS PLUS THEY LET YOU OFF UP AT THE FRONT OF THE ENTRANCE. OUR FAVORITE PLACE TO STAY IS THE CARRIBEAN BEACH RESORT. THIS HOTEL OFFERS A TROPICAL SETTING AND A WONDERFUL MAIN POOL ALONG WITH SEPERATE POOLS FOR EACH ISLAND. WE HAVE FOUND THAT IF WE STAY AT THE POOL LOCATED AT OUR 'ISLAND' WE USUALLY HAVE THE POOL TO OURSELVES BECAUSE EVERYONE ELSE IS AT THE MAIN POOL.
US DOLLARS 135.00 AND UP

THIS HOTEL USES THE BUS SYSTEM TO GET AROUND. THE MAIN POOL IS GREAT BUT USUALLY CROWDED. EACH ISLAND HAS ITS OWN POOL. THIS HOTEL HAS A FOOD COURT AND NUMEROUS ACTIVITIES TO DO.

From personal experience i would say that the best way to spend 2-3 weeks in florida is in a villa. They are large and spacious perfect for families and usually situated near to the large theme parks and attractions. Indian ridge is a 25 minute drive from Disney World, Florida
£250-£500 per week in Pounds

3 floors, absolute luxery, swimming pool, large bedroom, Pier (perfect for fishing).

If you are looking for a cheaper place on the Disney properties than I suggest the All-star Movies Resort.  All the rooms are themed around different types of movies, and there are two pools, arcades, and a restaurant.
Located on 1991 West Buena Vista Drive, in Lake Buena Vista, FL 32830.

Ok, if you are looking for a...

Ok, if you are looking for a nice resort to stay in while at the Magic Kingdom, Epcot, MGM, wherever, I highly suggest a very nice resort called the Wilderness Lodge.  This resort is located inside the park's property and is in a wooded area.  This huge Chateau is the lodge of the resort, and it looks like a hotel sized log mansion.  Inside the lobby everything is themed with the wilderness themes, from gift shops
to furniture, everything has to do with wildlife.  There are fantastic pools out back, a great game room with tons of arcade games for the kids, out back you can stroll along a huge lake, filled with wildlife.
Rooms run from $189-$445/night

Some great things about this place are it's wonderful location in the woods, wonderful wilderness themes, great dining options, wonderful pools and lakes out back, and also the geysers around the walkways.  The whole place is modeled after the famous Old Faithful Inn in Yellowstone National Parks, and has a 82 foot tall tree inside the lobby!

Port Orleans, which is in the Disney Resort area.
Moderately priced for the resort area. Approx. $300 a night.

Port Orleans, as you might have guessed recaptures the spirit of life on the Mississippi Delta. The food court is dressed up like Mardi Gras with giant masks, clowns, and lollipops hanging from the ceiling. Then there is Bonfamille's Cafe which is a full service restaurant, featuring Cajun!
Get into the mood and purchase beads at Jackson Square Gifts and Desires.
The pool is famous for the large serpent slide and gator band.

Port Orleans - mid range price, more of a family place, the hotel facade looks like row houses in New Orleans, all the restaurants are themed with New Orleans style cooking, but there's also a food court where you can get the basics (pizza, burgers, etc.) This one is less expensive (about $120 or so a night for a double) One of the Epcot resorts - so there's a free boat shuttle to and from Epcot and to some of the other resorts, as well as to the Downtown Disney Marketplace.
$120 and up.

You almost feel like you're in New Orleans - can eat the great food, even listen to New Orleans jazz live every night.

Boardwalk Inn and Suites -...

Boardwalk Inn and Suites - upper range. One of the Epcot resorts so also has the free shuttle. Like its name implies, built to look sort of like an Atlantic city casino on a boardwalk. The boardwalk is a great plus - with lots of food stands, nightly entertainment, and the nice walk down the water front. More expensive - around $220 a night for a double. Has something for everyone in terms of dining.
$270 and up.

A taste of Atalantic City - only cleaned up for Disney.

Here's another look at the ultra-colorful and unique All-Star Sports Resort.

It's interesting to note that the accommodation buildings have been divided into the 'Tennis Wing', 'Basketball Wing', 'Football Wing' etc. And we had the priviledge of staying at the colorful 'Basketball Wing' where it's been decorated with GIGANTIC (over-sized) basketballs, courts and everything relating to this particular sport. :-)

Photo below: Here I am with Donald Duck's cool nephews at the 'Tennis Wing'.
