Travel Blogs from Orlando
... went for our time slot there were people trying to sign up who were getting turned away because it was full.
There are tons of Disney blogs and websites offering tips and advice so you can find an overwhelming amount of information. I mainly just used DISboards.com. It's where I found information and tips and also where I found the creative people who made some of the designs for my shirts, journal pages and Epcot passports.
The main thing to remember is Have Fun!
... here has been cut short due to being kept in New York because if bad weather- so our schedule is pretty crazy busy and we won't get much time to enjoy this amazing hotel! Today we got ready and went out to explore the Orlando Premium Outlet Shops which was right next to our hotel. Although it was unusually cold here today for Orlando- we didn't care- at least we didn't have to wear thermals, gloves and beanies etc. The shopping complex was huge and took us from ...
... utterly awed when Darth Vader himself appeared and did battle with Jedi. A great interactive experience for kids and adults alike. We had an early dinner at Hollywood and Vine Diner where the decor was great. We then watched the Fantasmic water, movie and laser show in an outdoor amphitheatre combining live performers with laser projector movie scenes onto a water spray screen. Again a late night back to our resort hotel and energy levels were definitely ...
... our last day in Florida :( We decided to head back to Universal to finish off our holiday. We started in Universal as we had not managed to get on their new roller coaster Rip, Ride, Rock It yet, as the last time we were there it got rained off. We joint the queue which was quite long compared to what we were used to. While we were waiting one of the ride attendants asked where we were from and said that he really liked Ollie's t-shirt, as in his words 'he was keeping it ...

Fortunately we were rescued by a supervisor who sorted us out and, finally we went to board the ship, but not before Kathyn blurted "sorry for the confusion. I've been speaking mostly Spanish ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Fairfield Inn & Suites Orlando Lake Buena Vista
Great hotel for the price
This is a great hotel for the price. We stayed in this hotel in January 2004, for $39 a night. The rooms were large and clean. The hotel offers a very nice free breakfast, and is in a very good location. It is within walking distance to many good restaurants. The only complaint I have about the hotel is that you could plainly hear guests talking in the hallway from inside your room. The doors into the hallway are very thin and need more insulation in them. The pool was small for the size of hotel. Overall we enjoyed our stay and would stay here again.
We found the room on the travelzoo website for $39 and after reading the reviews in trip advisor decided it was the place to stay. We stayed in a King room which also had a fold out sofa bed. We paid $10 more a night and got one more roll-away bed which made the sleeping arrangements more comfortable for 4. The staff was great and when we checked in we had free hot chocolate and chocolate chip cookies, which hit the spot after a day of flying. The room was very clean, nice and roomy. Breakfast was really good, the kids made waffles and had juice and fruit. We didn't use the free shuttle to Disney because we had a rental car, but the entrance to the parks and Downtown Disney was only about 1/2 mile away from the hotel. We used the Kinkos next door to check email a few times. The kids went swimming in the evenings in the heated pool, even though the temp outside was in the 60's. Overall a great deal for the budget minded family!!!
We arrived at Country Inn after a VERY long day in and out of airports.
Great location for restaurants
Only 20 minutes from the Disney World, this is a great place to stay. We received a very friendly reception when checking in. The rooms are in good condition and were clean. It s a fantastic location having 7 to 9 restaurants and all an easy walk. There is Tony Roma s, Sizzler, Giordano Pizza and China Buffet on the same block and across the street (and you can cross over) there is Chili s, Joe s Crab Shack and Romano s Mac Grill and Olive Garden.
Basic but clean and nice hotel
A nice hotel of a good standard. Nothing spectacular but clean and in an amazing location for Disney fans. Some of the staff were rude and avoid the 'discount' theme park tickets lady who will lie to you to try and get you to buy timeshare.
Also nice free hot choc and breakfast.
Loved the Hotel
great Hotel, clean and bright. Quiet location with great staff.
The room was clean, great continental Buffet. The pool although was small.
Would definetely stay again for $59.00/night
I just returned home from my 10 night stay at this hotel (Sept.09-19/03) and I couldn't have been more pleased with my acccomodations. I too, waited and watched for the rates to drop on the Country Inns and Suites official website and ended up paying only $49 night. The hotel itself was extremely clean while the staff was friendly and very helpful. My room was clean and spacious with a fridge and microwave oven. (standard in every room) I didn't want to stay on the Disney properties because I like having more alternate choices for dining, shopping, groceries etc. and this hotel was perfect for that.
Great swimming pool
We stayed here in October 2002 and loved it. the suite was a perfect size for a family. The couch opened to a nice bed and the bedroom had a king size bed. It has a fridge and microwave and 2 TV's which was great for thekids. Our room overlooked the pool which was great. Pool had a slide and zero entry wchich the kids loved. Hot tub was nice too. We never used the hotel bus to get to the attractions but they were easy to find in our car. Also not too far away were plenty of places to eat to choose from and this hotel had a free breakfast-cereal, juice,muffins etc. The hotel is also pretty new so it was in great shape. Would go again., the price was great.
We found this hotel after much research on trip advisor. Great rate found at the Country Inn web site. We checked in with no problems, room was originally booked for non smoking, we were given a smoking. Had no problem changing the room. The lady at the front desk was very helpful.
Highly recommend this hotel
Great hotel. Very clean room with microwave and fridge, extremely courteous staff and great breakfast all at a very reasonable value. Remember to check their local website frequently, they often post great room rate for off season stay. We got an extraordinary good deal via their website, $39 per night, for our stay. Location is great, extremely convenient. Hotel is close to Disney World, Orlando Premium Outlets, grocery store and major highway. Most important of all, hotel is right next to Kinkos! My boyfriend and I just hopped next door to check email every night! Will definitely return to this hotel if I go to Orlando again.
