I was awake before 7:00, but it was after 8:30 before my guys got moving. We had cereal in the room and collected our supplies in the backpacks for the park. I decided on Magic Kingdom, since we planned on Disney Studios and Epcot on Tuesday. DH was driving and said I didn't need to be looking at a map, he knew where he needed to go ... however …
8 hours of driving today -- down through Georgia -- only just missing the traffic for the Atlanta Braves game -- crossing into Florida and g was pretty excited at that -- he thought we must be almost there now -- but another few hours after that! At least this time, we were early enough (but only just!) to stop at the OFFICIAL Florida Welcome …
Lauren here. Well, today has been a long time coming! We were up pretty early for our 9.30am flight to Orlando, which passed pretty quickly and we soon arrived at Orlando International Airport. Having not seen my family for over 5 months, it was such a lovely surprise seeing them waiting for us as we got off the shuttle ...
... t really think I’ve done that much in my whole program, and every day I’m thankful I got to share it with Mum, Dad, Gemma and Will, and give them an insight into my crazy life. I appreciate the effort they all made to come over here, lots of money spent, and lots of hours travelling.. I just hope that with this blog we’ll always be able to remember how worth it it was and how lucky we all are.
Walt Disney World – where dreams really do come ...
... only been learning English for a month yet seems to speak it near flawlessly, but I cannot fit everything in, and I think I’ve already gone into too much detail. I sit here on the 3rd May, watching Basketball with some excitable yanks and wondering what it’s all about. A British girl and an Aussie girl turned up at the hostel today, and we’ve made cagey plans to go to Disneyworld together tomorrow. If that doesn’t happen, I will be most disappointed…

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.
