Accommodations Review:

Wonderful Resort under a mile from the Crossroads Shopping Center and very near I-4, exit 27. Our villa included a MBR with double Jacuzzi and oversized shower, 2nd BR with 2 double beds, fully equipped kitchen w/fridge, stove, oven, micro, dishwasher, disposal and stacked washer & dryer. The LR/DR was spacious with dining seating for 6+. There was a queen pull-out sofa bed, chairs, TV/VCR and screened lanai. Everything was very clean and attractive. Both full bathrooms had hairdryers. Large, nicely furnished, well-laid-out rooms. Some buildings have elevators, as ours did. The oldest section of the resort is town homes - newly refurbished but no Jacuzzi. Great trip.

Rate/Night (for your stay):

Timeshare exchange through RCI

Restaurant/Lounge Review:

The light poolside restaurant near the "Super Pool" had good sandwiches at reasonable prices, friendly service. Most pool areas (there are 7 or more) had a nearby bar.

Sundries Shop, Pool, Hot Tub, Health Club/Spa, Sauna/Steam Room, Bicycling, Playground, Tennis, Hairdryer, Laundry, In-Room Safe, Babysitting/Kid Programs, Cooking Facilities, Concierge, Room Service, Handicapped Accessible Rooms, Smoke Detectors, Fire Sprinklers.

Pool Description/Comments:

Many pools (all heated, w/hot tubs and kiddie pools). "Cascades" was gorgeous, with a waterfall and squishy sidewalk fountains for the kids. "Falls" included a short steep waterslide. "Springs" had a fun video arcade and lush foliage. Each area had something nice, worth visiting around if your family enjoys nice pools. Pool towels at the recreation centers near each pool area, as well as organized activities.

Other Comments:

We'd return anytime - highly recommended. Only 10 minutes to Epcot or D-MGM's parking lots.
