Fairfield Inn Orlando Lake Buena Vista in the Marriott Village

... my first day at altitude with no acclimitisation! Kinda died a little after that but pushed my body towards the finish line, as the next day I was back on a bike in Banos, doing one of the best cycle routes in South America passing a series of giant waterfalls in lush green mountains and canyons. Wanted so much to stay here longer and do all the activities in the area as would have taken a long time before I got bored, but ultimately I was taking another bus high into the mountains ...
... was only 10 mins, Indie was desperate to ride it so we all thought :how wet can you get, it can't possibly be as bad as Dudly Dooright was" except Matt who decided it was a seriously bad idea, but came anyway. The answer to how wet can you get, was totally soaked through to your undies, it was a huge laugh, but we were all completely soaked, and as the sun was nowhere to be seen at that point it was pretty chilly, so we joined the line and forked out $10 to go into the dryer where we ...

The day ended with Fantasmic, a dramatic night show with water and fireworks, directed by Mickey Mouse, as the show goes from all Disneys heros to villians in Mickeys imagination, he overcomes evil and the heros save the day (or something like that), a great spectacular whatever and IMO worth the 90 minute wait for the great seats we had.
All in all the day was pretty much summed up by Mickeys Imagination...... ...
... to Harry and heading into the Dr. Seuss world.
The main ride in the Seuss section of the park was out of order, but I was able to buy a few Grinch themed gifts for my nieces for Christmas. The next world was themed like ancient Greece and adventure (a la Indiana Jones). Half of our group decided to go back to Marvel world to ride the Hulk ride one more time, so that left four of us to take our time walking through ...
... the limit for us so we left the kids to go on the rest of the very fast paced ones after that! The park is really great and we had a fantastic day there and we managed to go on all the rides we wanted without having to spend too much time queuing! We all went on the rides that get you wet but we didn't realise how wet - soaked! We were completely drenched and all had to buy ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Fairfield Inn Orlando Lake Buena Vista in the Marriott Village
Highly recommend this hotel...
March 9-12, 2004 I am VERY picky when it comes to hotels. This one was immaculate! Very clean bathroom and bedding. The carpet could have been cleaner, but I have never stayed in any hotel that didn't get my socks dirty! We checked in very late on the 9th and went straight to bed. The next morning we had a scare because there was absolutely no water! I couldn't believe we had made a bad choice, but evidently there had been a water main break and all the hotels in the area were without water.
Fortunately, we weren't in a hurry to go anywhere and the water did come back on in about two hours. Whew! The continental breakfast was excellent with donuts, pastries, bagels, english muffins, muffins, bread for toast, various fruit, milk (3 diff. kinds), coffee, tea, juice, yogurt. I highly recommend the Fairfield Inn.
Loved this hotel!!
I try to visit Orlando at least once a year and love staying by Downtown Disney. Because I did not rent a car, I wanted something accessible by foot. This property was perfect. If you don't mind to walk and I don't, Downtown Disney was about 1.5 miles away. I took this trek 2 times during my stay. I was also able to walk to Crossroads and all of the places to eat on this major intersection. Also, the Orlando Premium Outlets was only a 10 minute walk from my hotel. The room was very clean and had a nice fridge at no extra costs. The pool was just the right size and not too busy. Breakfast was included and you had a nice selection to get you jump started in the morning. The food court was perfect and not too expensive. I highly recommend this property for couples, families or singles, like myself. My husband couldn't make the trip with me so it was a great weekend get away. Would definately stay here again at the $80.00 per night rate.
Great 4 Teens!
Me (17 at the time) and my cousin (18 at the time) had a great time!
The starbucks and pizzahut at the food court was great and saved us a lot of money. It was close to all the theme parks and even provided a shuttle to and from for a small nomial fee. What I liked best was our parents set it up so they payed before we went and me and her could stay there where most hotels require an adult of 21 or older. The friendly staff was more than willing to work with us. Great graduation present! Good breakfast too!
I stayed one night at the Fairfield Inn in Orlando at the end of our Disney vacation and I was very impressed with the quality of room that I got with the rate I paid (less than 90 dollars using my entertainment book). The room was on the top floor and had two queen size beds, a large television and a refrigerator, coffeemaker, etc-all of which I previously had to pay extra for at disney. As an added bonus we were also able to watch some fireworks from our room as it was on the top floor and the pool was also very nice. I am considering staying there again the next time I go for a few nights.
Decent hotel. The a/c had leaked and got the carpet soaking wet but other than that, it's a really good hotel and very close to Disney.
Very nice hotel
we stayed here after reading some good reviews on this sight and we were happy to find that the reviews were right. The prices were very good, and looking at the outside of other hotels around us, it looked like the marriott village hotels were some of the nicest in the area.
The hotel is 5 min from downtown disney, and if you drive up the highway 5 or 10 min there are tons of restaurants and shops and all kinds of things to keep you amused. If you are looking for a basic room that is very clean with a pool/jacuzzi for a low price i would definately recommend this hotel. oh good breakfast!
Sehr nettes Hotel
Wir übernachteten hier, nachdem wir einige gute Kritiken auf dieser Website gelesen hatten und waren froh darüber, denn die Kritiken stimmten. Die Preise waren sehr gut und nachdem wir uns einige andere Hotels von außen angesehen haben hatten wir den Eindruck, dass die Marriott Village Hotels einige der nettesten hier in der Gegend sind.
Das Hotel ist 5 Minuten vom Disney-Zentrum entfernt und wenn man auf dem Highway 5-10 Minuten fährt findet man dort hunderte von Restaurants und Geschäfte, und vieles, was einfach Spaß macht.
Wenn man nach einem einfachen, sehr sauberen Zimmer sucht mit einem Pool/Whirlpool zu einem niedrigen Preis, dann kann ich dieses Hotel definitiv empfehlen. Oh, und das Frühstück ist sehr gut!
Excellent hotel with an excellent price
The Fairfield Inn Marriott is our hotel of choice whenever we visit the Orlando/Disney area. The staff is A+ and very courteous. The location is excellent, and the rooms are impecable. The jacuzzi downstairs by the pool is my personal favorite after doing some serious walking all over the Disney parks. We discovered this place after a nightmarish night at a nearby hotel, and we haven't thought about staying somewhere else. It's about 5 minutes from Downtown Disney. If you're looking for a hotel to stay, look no further..this is the place.
Very nice hotel
March, 2003. This is a great choice for a moderately-priced hotel. The Marriott Village is secure, 10 minutes from Disney, and near enough to other restaurants, stores, etc. The complimentary breakfast is wonderful. Choices included muffins, cereal, yogurt, juice, coffee, etc. It was in the lobby in the dining area, but you could take extra to the room. The room was nice enough for the price. The bed was a bit soft and uncomfortable. The food court downstairs is a bit expensive. Other fast food options are nearby. The pool was very nice and large. Our room was located at the end of a hall, near a side exit, which was more convenient to our car. We split the trip between this hotel & another, but would stay here again. Again, great breakfast.
Very nice accomodations!
Very clean, new looking. Room had everything but a safe. Had a small refrigerator, iron, ironing board, hairdryer. Front desk friendly helpful. 4 people stayed for 2 days on AAA and senior discount. We had 2 beds in each room and the door between the rooms opened and we could go back and forth. That was nice. Not everywhere will guarantee you will be together. AAA said 2 miles from Disneyworld but actually farther and clerk confirmed it is or seems farther. Next to two other Marriotts and have restaurants and shops in area- a different idea. Didnt frequent those but nice to know they are there. This was a good location- close to I-4. Area very secure- gated, and pool- need the room key to get in. Makes you feel very safe. Will do Marriott again. Very reasonable prices too.
