... came and we were stuck in the waiting line inside the dragons cave for half an hour. But was so worth it! Was so sick. We were lucky and the park wasn't that full so we had time to go on all the rides, hulk, spider man, fantastic four. All scary but so much fun afterwards. The day finished way to quickly and we got back to our hotel packed and were ready to manage the orlando bus system again, successfully this time to the megabus bus stop for our $1 bus Next stop... ...
... One of the six had a time share arrangement with Sheraton, so we spent arrival night at the Sheraton Vistana Villages. It suited our purposes for an introductory night. It was big. It was nice. It was clean and up to date. However it wasn't close to Disney -- our primary target -- and we didn't take advantage of the amenities. It was a place to stay.

... time to grab a Burger King for lunch before being invited to board. At least all the rushing around has meant that this is the first flight I've taken where I haven't been crippled with nerves - there was just no time for it! The plane was huge and really comfy, but the flight took 9 hours, rather than the 7 hours it took the last time we flew to Orlando - and we could tell the difference. To keep ourselves from boredom we: > Watched Frozen, Thor, World's End and ...
... ride. The Twister ride was pretty good, putting us in the middle of a twister in a small town. The Men in Black ride was okay, as we shot at aliens for our MIB training, and the ET Adventure was a bit too kiddy. Dinner was at the Hard Rock Cafe and now we're back at the hotel, completely wrecked from spending around eleven and a half hours at the theme park. It was the most amazing day, geeking out at Harry Potter! Tomorrow we're off to Miami. Ready for more sun and partying ...
... bus and then catch a bus to their resort from there. So we were packed into the one bus. Since we were delivered to Downtown Disney, we decided to have dinner at the Earl of Sandwich, where we had enjoyed their sandwiches immensely in 2011. Finishing our meal, we head to the door only to find that it was absolutely POURING outside! The forecasted rain had arrived. We waited for it to lax a bit and then hustled store to store to ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Monumental MovieLand Orlando
The motel is situated directly opposite wet 'n wild and location is very good for all international drive activities, sea-world & universal studios. Shuttle bus service to universal provided, travel to Disney would have to be arranged independently. Hotel staff coped well with 'Hurricane Charley' and provided special restaurant facility for dining during the hurricane! Breakfast is also excellent value at $5 per adult and free for children.
Liked BWM till check out time
At 1st arrival our reservations were not correct. It took a lot of time to get things straightened out, but we were given an upgrade to a jacuzzi suite as an apology. Suite was very nice. At departure time we needed an one hr check out extension because flights were delayed due to G. W. Bush arrival. The management absolutely refused even though
I am very disabled and need to have my feet elevate to alleviate pain. No one there seemed to care, all over 1hr. I also might ad that we had been staying there for a week.
Very damp. not comfortable
I stayed here for 5 nights while visiting Parks in Orlando. The location is good. but hotel I was not too keen on. The room was big but damp. The airconditioning was outdated. Everytime we walked into the room their was a musty smell - I wasnt comfortable at all. It was a case of sleep and get out quick. bathroom was small and basic. price was ok i suppose but I would prefer to pay more for a comfortable room. we left with colds and sore throat.
Very Nice Basic Hotel
We stayed from 6/9/04-6/12/04 while visiting DisneyWorld and Universal. We spend most of the day at the parks so we were looking for a basic room with a nice pool at an exremely affordable price.
Hotel well kept, clean , nicely sized rooms .
I would recommend it if you are looking for cheap digs.
Good Hotel Great Location
Stayed in this hotel for 2 weeks in October 2003. The location is great - across the street from Wet n Wild, and 10 minutes walk to Universal Studios if you dont want to take the car. There are free shuttle buses to the theme parks and a Black Angus steakhouse on site, although many more restaurants nearby. Rooms are very clean and nicely decorated.
Didnt experience any noise, pool was not that busy either this time of year. Definitely go back again as it is great value.
Good Hotel close to the action
Stayed in November 2003. Excellent value for money. Good location on International Drive for all activities. Nice pool. Just make sure that you stay on the pool side of the hotel & not the motorway side as that its a bit noisy. We aksed to move rooms which they accepted without any arguments.
Not sure would stay here again
We stayed here in 2002 and were slightly dissapointed. Although the room was very spacious, the hotel in general was noisy and the fact that they do not offer any shuttle service to the parks makes getting to them very awkward if you are not driving. Pool was nice, but very busy and there is no restaurant in the hotel at all - or a bar. ok if you want VERY BASIC
Nice, but noisy!
We stayed for 3 nights in BW Movieland early October, after season.
The hotel is very solid, what you may expect from BW. Rooms are spacious, bath room is clean. The pool area with Tikibar is OK and the location on International Drive across Wet 'n Wild is good.
But don't go here if you also want to enjoy your rest.
The doors let through a lot of noise and the tiles in the entree part of the room improve the effect. I woke all days around 7 in the morning because of playing kids and slamming doors, which is not my idea of holiday.
Without the noise it would be a more than average hotel.
Las Palmas is a friendly hotel with clean, comfortable rooms, a good sized pool and a restaurant offering a wide variety of excellent dishes right on the premises. It is an ideal base from which to visit the theme parks and the various attractions on International drive. We were pleased to see the extensive refurbishments and improvements on our second visit in April 2001, just one year after we first stayed in the hotel. I highly recommned it.
