... a buck because it was actually an RV that had a high open grass knoll overlooking Lake Pontchartrain, this was our campsite. Only tent at the place, being stared at by quarter million dollar RV's and 36 foot travel trailers was fun. Got some funny looks out of that deal. First night we did the music then Bourbon street deal, won't go into too much detail about what we saw, I'll keep the blog age appropriate. Typical Bourbon street. Not my ...
... these rockets are huge.... And I mean huge... And powerful... Wow... We saw where they are constructed...and the launch pads for all of the rockets... The shuttle missions ended last year and they have now started the new design rockets..Orion, similar to the Apollo rockets but twice the size... We saw the actual room where the mission to the moon was managed.. And after speaking seeing and doing everything today.. I am a believer. :-) Tomorrow we are off to Vegas... ...
... We ate at Fulton's outside overlooking the lake. Great view-but not the best seafood of our trip. Might skip that next time. We walked by Raglan's Irish Pub where we have dinner reservations later in the week-looks like fun!
We drove back to Fort Wilderness now that it was time for official check in. Glad we checked in early! There were now lines in the Settlement Depot due to a lot of people checking in, ...
... and played on the swings. We returned to the great scissor hunt that was preceeding last minute pressie wrapping back at the RV. Energy levels were now sapping just enough for Greg to fry up fish sticks, pinto beans and hash browns. A bottle of wine and I think that may be it......
NB not to forget me seeing my first hidden Mickey on the cooker controls!! Time is 8.30pm, only me and Lizzie left standing?!
... on board. We got to see Lions, Cheetahs, Elephants, Hippos (sleeping under water!), an Ostrich, Flamingos (who are pink because of the amount of shrimp they eat), Okapi, Ankole Cattle and a Warthog...that made loads of kiddies squeal ‘Pumbaa’!!!! It took a memory prompt from the driver but I soon remembered this was the name of the Warthog from the Lion King. With a bit of theatre thrown in for good measure we got caught up in the hunt for some poachers, and ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Summer Bay Orlando By Exploria Resorts Clermont
Due to the mixed reviews for this resort, I did not expect great accomodations, however, I was wrong. It had a great club house with tennis, arcade, and a place to rent videos without leaving the premise.
You could even rent ski jets and fish if you wanted a relaxing day away from the theme parks.
The two bedroom suite was great and included a hot tub and a balcony that overlooked a small pond. It was very relaxing and the rooms were clean.
The resort was very close to the Disney attractions and places to eat.
I highly recommend this resort.
We had the worst experience with Summer Bay long before we arrived. I went thru one of these marketing places where they give you 5 days, 4 nights plus 2 Disney Tickets for 3 parks. They only this you had to do is listen for 90 minutes to a presentation to buy timeshare. When I made this reservation, I was told I was going to stay at a 1 bedroom condo and the Summer Bay resort. It was turning out that they were putting us up at the Holiday Inn, not the 1 bedroom condo they had promised. This was thru a marketing company that Summer Bay hired.
It could only be better if it was FREE!
Our accommodations were beautiful, and better than expected compared to other places we've stayed. Fun activities for the kids that are supervised, so pa and I could relax. We drove to DW, but a shuttle was offered as an option. One day we had a nice boat ride on the lake which separates the resort from Animal Kingdom and watched the animals. The kids were thrilled! The clubhouse, pools, activities, gift shop, lake, etc. can't be beat, unless you stay at WDW at 5X the price.
We had reserved a 3 bedroom condo for our family. When we walked into our room, we found that it was only a 2 bedroom not even large enough to sleep our family of 8. (I guess they thought we wouldn't notice!?!) When we brought this to the attention of the staff, we were told that even though our resevervation was correct there were no 3 bedrooms avalible and if we didn't like it, we could check out! They did finally give us an extra 2 bedroom condo at the other end of the building for the rest of our family. The condo smelled terrible. We did not have hot showers the whole week we were there and on the morning we left there was not even enough water pressure to make the showers work!! The units are not carpeted in the commom living spaces and therefore everything echos. The people staying above you sound like they are stomping around at all hours. What a let down.

Summer bay resort, kissimmee
we stayed at summer bay resort. the holiday inn express was nice, but
we got there at 4 and our room wasnt cleaned yet. when we got there we
were told it be an extra $11 a night for hotel tax. i had asked before
for our exact amount and this was not told to me. then when we checked
in i was told i had to leave a $50 deposit. we were told we could get
public transportation from the airport and around there because we
didnt have a car. the only thing we could get from the airport was a
taxie which cost $50. no transportation at the resort. had to take a
taxie to another place $3.50 each way to get a city bus to go anyplace.
did not like it. to many surprises and not telling the truth.
I checked out reviews and pictures of the resort ahead of time before arriving. I knew all the amenities to expect. The nice room accommadations, the beautiful grounds with a fish-stocked lake, and the family pool area. What I was not prepared for was the Timeshare Sales Staff!
Gotta love this place!
This place is great, we own a 3 bedroom house with it's own swimming pool! We have been going for three years and can't wait to get back. Lots of great activities for kids, and a great poolside bar for the adults. Extreemly well landscaped and great up-keep on the property. Close to everything except the Florida Turnpike.
A Very Satisfied Owner
My husband and I are the owners of a 3BR Home in Summer Bay Resort. We've spent 1 vacation there and are due to check-in during April 2003. I can't wait!! This is truly a beautiful resort, great staff and I just can't say enough about it! If you're looking or entertaining the idea of buying a timeshare, check out Summer Bay and you'll look no further!
Being frugal by nature (due to my Scottish heritage?), I could hardly resist the offer from the wholesaletravel site to stay at Summer Bay Resort. Yes, it did come with the string of having to attend the perfunctory timeshare sales pitch, but at a rate of $39 plus tax per night for a one bedroom condo with a jacuzzi, it was exactly what my fiancee' and I needed for a vacation.
