After a 24 hour day, getting up at 4am and taking off at Manchester at 10am, landing in Atlanta at 4pm American time or 9pm British, and landing in Orlando at almost 7pm and after getting the rental car, picking up a pizza and checking in, needless to say we crashed without much pause for thought, the following morning we felt fairly delicate and …

All is quiet...

quiet day today.. lounged about in the pool while my father and friend were staying in watching the football, nice one Germany. We ate at BJ's bar and grill, despite the somewhat questionable name it was fairly normal, I the spinach rolls for appetizers were nice and the pizza for main was alright but nothing brilliant, a quiet day then . really.

Waking up this morning I felt slightly more in control, and after breakfast we decided to go to typhoon lagoon water park for the day, you can see my review but the overall experience was good, the wave pool and crush and gusher water-coaster being highlights, with busyness and school groups spoiling our day a little, we ate that evening at brick …

... rather gorgeous sarong and found Jill, she was sitting with Rosemary a woman from Hobart, she joined us for a drink at the poolside bar. I got a sage Mohito called a Skinny Dip and they got ciders. My drink was yummy but they didn't think their ciders were that special. A free "root beer float" was going nearby and Jill got one for us to share, the ingredients of the root beer were all strange chemicals and Jill thought it tasted antiseptic - one sip was enough for each of ...

... lot for the night and met the owner and pilots of a hot air balloon company at 6am the next morning. We drove to the launch site, helped where we could to inflate the balloons and took off through the mist to fly as the sun rose and to see the forests and waterways of Florida from the air. We were so fortunate with the weather and with the fact that Kevin and I travelled in a two plus pilot balloon ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Floridays Resort Orlando

    Very Pleased Overall


    I guess we just were very fortunate...no problems at all with our stay at Floridays. Yes, it is brand new and most of the buildings are still being completed and furnished, but we weren't even aware of the construction activity...no noise, dust (etc.) Also, the staff were very pleasant and helpful.

    Beautiful hotel-housekeeping not so good


    the rooms a really nice...the master bathtub is great..along with kiddie pool.

    But please note the first day after stay, housekeeping did not come at all..the beds were not made, nothing!

    I don't know if they did not know that a guest was in that room or what.

    The staff seems very mechanical, they were effecient..but seemed to be following training guides not to personable.

    But the rooms are gorgeous,...ask to be in buildingB.

    Also, the hotel is very quiet, but in the heart of everything!

    Floridays Orlando Resort nice but a few problems!


    My family stayed at the Floridays resort July 10-17. The checkin was great until we got to the rooms. The room was dirty and the bathrooms had never been cleaned. The housekeeping is very slack. We didn;t even get service until we called late afternoon and all the housekeeping folks were going home. This resort is very nice but they need to have better managing skills. Our toilets and bathtub backed up for a couple of days. The hot tub by the pool was broken. We would possibly stay again but right now unsure it we would.

    Ga. on my mind!

    Great value now but read my tips!


    Our family of 9 stayed for 3 nights during July 4 week.

    Superb value at this time


    My daughter's family and my husband and I just returned from four days at Floridays Resort. The location is superb; it's less than ten minutes from Sea World and an easy drive to other theme parks. The pool is fantastic; our grandchildren, aged 5 and 7, didn't even want to go to the water park. They were perfectly happy with the water features for kids in the Floridays pool. As brand new construction, Floridays has a few problems,but the wonderful staff makes up for any shortcomings. They were very helpful, especially when a toilet in our three-bedroom unit started to overflow, accompanied by water shooting up from the bathroom sinks. They quickly gave us a new condo and even allowed my daughter's family to stay in the original unit that night because the kids had already been put to bed. The remaining working bathroom was adequate for them, as long as my husband and I went to the new unit. The next morning everyone moved to the new condo. This one was 69 degrees, and we couldn't change the themostat. A maintenance man arrived within minutes of my request to set it a few degrees higher. The furnishings are beautiful, perhaps too nice to easily withstand the wear and tear of the tourist trade. Also,the interior decorator designed the master bedroom drapes so that they could not be closed. I'm sure all the "bugs" will be worked out, however. The bargain price more than compensated for a few problems. I'm sure the price will go up when all facilities are complete.

    Enjoyed my family vacation at Floridays Resort in Orlando


    My family and I recently came back from our vacation in Orlando Fl. We stayed in a 3 bedroom condo at Floridays Resort from June 8-12 2006. We arrived a couples of hours before check in time, but were graciously welcomed and allowed to check in early. There was going to be a total of nine people sharing a room which consisted of 4 adults and 5 children. I was a little worried about space and privacy. We were assigned a room on the 3rd floor and was told ahead of time there was not much of a view from the window. We opened the doors to a beautifully decorated, oversized, and clean condo. My husband and I totally enjoyed the whirlpool tub in the master bedroom. My nephew enjoyed watching the plasma TV in the living room area, in which he pulled out the sofabed that was new and slept there every night. The 4 other children shared a bedroom that had 2 queen sized beds and a TV also. My sister and her husband had their own bedroom as well. Their was plenty of space. We visited the pool every night and the children loved the water sprayers. The Publix was within walking distance. Seaworld is also very close by as well as Disney and Universal Studios. We totally enjoyed our vacation there and hopefully will return there next year.



    I just stayed at Floridays Orlando Resort and it was a fabulous vacation! The resort is still under construction so it seems a bit strange staying there with some of the buildings just being built, but it wasn't a bother at all. We stayed in Building B which is fully completed and it's fabulous. The room was amazing and included everything you could need or want(dishes, pool towels, iron, utensils, pots & pans, full size refrigerator, stove...etc!). I am very picky about toilet paper (as strange as that might be) and towels and both were of great quality. The king size bed in the master bedroom was so comfortable it was hard to get out of bed and head to the parks. The pool is magnificently big and the kiddie section/waterpark was a big hit with all the kids staying at the resort!

    Floridays in May


    We are a family of 5 that were LITERALLY the first guests to stay at this hotel. Although it is under construction, we had a wonderful time. Management was incredible. Accommodations were impeccable, and top of the line in terms of quality. We had a 3 bedroom, 2 bath unit. Entrance was a little difficult to find in the dark, but a GREAT location. Close to everything, yet far enough away from the enormous traffic that surrounds Disney. This condo/hotel is fabulous. Your suite is cleaned, trash taken out, and beds are made on a DAILY basis, unlike renting a condo or a house where you do all the cleaning yourself or have to beg for clean towels!

    Good value..for now


    We just recently returned from a 5 night stay at the new Floridays Resort in Orlando. We cancelled reservations at Cypress Harbour Resort because we got the Floridays Resort $50 per night cheaper. It is a good value right now, however, since it is still under construction, there are some drawbacks. There is nowhere to stroll around the resort or jog. The exercise room does not have tvs which makes excercise very boring. We found the rooms to be quite a bit smaller than some of the timeshare resorts such as Hilton Grand Vacation Club and the Marriott timeshare units and you cannot see fireworks from this resort. Do not recommend a unit on the second floor because when you sit on your very small balcony, your view is of the concrete wall. This is only a problem on the second floor because all other floors have a railing instead of the wall. The furnishings are very nice and maid service provides plenty of thick towels every day. The pool is nice, but no shade. When other buildings open, the pool will be way too small, but hopefully they will have other pools?

    Brand new condo near Disney


    I write this as we finish our 6 night stay at Floridays. I was a little leary booking this hotel since it opened its doors exactly 1 month ago. Currently, there is only one building that occupies guests and it will take nearly 2 years before construction is complete. The pool is beautiful, although not huge. We would read at the pool each morning and it was rare to find any other guests using it while we were there. The rooms are beautifully furnished...complete with a full kitchen, washer and dryer, plasma tv in the living room and a tv in each of the bedrooms. The beds were comfortable and best of all, the furnishings were new. No soiled carpets or stinky rooms! The staff here is awesome. We had a few glitches our first day....no telephone book, no garbage cans in the bathrooms, and a door lock that wouldn't lock. The manager immediately moved us to another room and even provided a beautiful gift basket to compensate for our inconvenience. The location is great if you will be staying outside of Disney. A mile or so away you'll find a large outlet shopping complex. Even closer is a Walgreen drug store, Publix supermarket, Subway, McDonalds, etc. It is convenient for getting to Disney and SeaWorld. A 15 minute freeway drive to get to Universal Studios. All in all, I would highly recommend this hotel if you are interested in being "off Disney property" and like to stay in a spacious, new property.
