... on broomsticks Enroute to a quidditch game via dragons and through hogwarts. It was really well done and felt properly like we were part of the story. Between screens they would have physical things coming out at us like a dragon that breathed smoke illuminated orange like fire on us. Carried on round the park, taking it in turns in the wheelchair and blag it onto rides. Jurassic park was fun, with a giant T. Rex head roaring down at us at the ...
Today we went to Animal Kingdom, one of the Disney Parks. Safari ride to see animals like elephants, lion, cheetah, giraffe, hippos. A few rides here, not as many as the other parks. This one more about the animals and their conservation of them. Then we headed over to Epcot Park. This park more about technology and the future. Stayed for the Illlumination show. So that's 2 parks done in one day. On the flip side, we are finding Orlando very frustrating. ...
Saturday also involved other things, but others are going to update you on those things.
Dom, Indie, Orlanda and I headed to the MK for 2pm so we could have some MK fun and watch the parades. John dropped us at the Grand Floridian so we could jump on the monorail to MK, wow it is beautiful, I'd love to stay there, one day maybe..... Anyway we went in to MK and bagged a spot on Main Street ...
Bit of a lie in today followed by afternoon tea at the Grand Floridian Hotel. Very nice - She Who Must Be Obeyed had one similar to the ones you get at places like Bettys in York whilst I had pate, cheeses and port. Very civilised!!
Wend from there to the Magic Kingdom to see the new areas of Fantasyland. All looks very good - The Beast's Castle looks awesome and She Who Must Be Obeyed had a Le Fou's Brew in Gaston's Tavern.
Went on Pirates of ...
... chicken breast, fresh asparagus and mushrooms tossed in a Parmesan cream sauce with bow-tie pasta). Although the food was excellent the service was way too quick and we had barely finished our starters when the mains came. I prefer a break between courses but I guess they need to turn tables.
Now we are back at the villa enjoying some ice-cream and some wine before our journey home begins ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Marriott's Harbour Lake Orlando
My family and I just returned from Horizons and we had a great time! We own a 2 bedroom and we stay at Horizons every other year. The condo itself was better than I expected and came equipped with everything you could think of - washer/dryer, full kitchen, etc. We stayed in Building 15 and had a nice view of the lake right off the screened in patio. We had a huge TV in the living room (I don't remember having this 2 years ago!) which was a nice surprise. The condo had 2 bedrooms, with 2 separate beds in the kids room, the master bedroom had a King sized bed. Plus 2 full baths. I felt at home. The kids enjoyed the activities, although I feel they could add some new ones and I am still waiting on 'phase 2' (movie theaters, etc.). They did add miniature golf. The pool was great of course (although lots of kids - the are supposed to build an adult pool soon), and the bar and grill off the pool was priced reasonably and delicious. Also, everything is within a few miles - attractions, stores, Downtown Disney, restaurants, etc. I definitely look forward to staying there again!!!!
I booked a marketing promotion to attend a marketing (timeshare) presentation at the Horizons through a salesperson named Beverly. Her office whose is located at the Residence Inn/Sea World Orlando. Promotion was for $199.00/3 nights, 2 bedroom villa etc......Yeah, seems wonderful thus far! Pay attention!!! I was told upon booking this promotion that there would be NO PROBLEM with cancelling. Here I am TRYING to cancel well in advance (over a month mind you). I called Beverly back ("please call me if you have problems, questions, concerns, cancellation") to be told that I must call a DIFFERENT number because she only books the promotions but can not cancel them. Go figure!!! I have been spending TWO days calling phone number after phone number being referred to person after person and guess what? Noone seems to know how or want to cancel my reservation and process my refund. Mind you Marriott took my money promptly (less than 24 hours after booking) and now that I want to cancel and my money back.....it's IMPOSSIBLE! I am STILL waiting for a call back (I've left 2 or 3 messages with different people) and in my last call had to threaten to contact the BBB and the Florida State Attorney General's office. Unless you want to be scammed.......do not conduct business with the Marriott Vacation Club! They love to take but not to return!!!!! BEWARE!!!! Feel free to email me, I'm telling the WHOLE TRUTH!
Loved our stay at Horizon's - kid/family friendly
We stayed at the Horizon's March 29-April 2; our family of 4 had a great time. We had a lake view unit in the new building (Bldg 15). We enjoy the spacious accomodations, washer and dryer, kitchen and big screen tv. The unit was very clean and well kept. The on-premise minature golf course opened as we were leaving. We have stayed at 3 different time shares with Marriott; you always know what to expect. We are owners at Horizon's and proud of it.
Entire family enjoyed Horizons
We just returned from a trip with our family (myself, wife, and 2 kids 8 & 10). My parents joined us for the week.
With 4 adults and 2 kids we felt we had plenty of room. The condos were very nicely decorated and maintained. The few maintenance problems we reported were addresses IMMEDIATELY (they litterally had someone at the door inside of 5 minutes of our call).
The resort is still being built so there are visitors and not all facilities are complete, however the resort is very enjoyable even today. It will certainly only get better.
Great location. Only minutes from Disney, Universal or Sea World.
Definitely a family resort (cater to kids, with themes and activities; plenty of kids around). However, all ages in our 3 generations had a great time.
The rooms are great! That is the selling point. This resort does not live up to the Marriott quality I am used to being a Gold member.
We highly recommend HORIZONS as it was spit-shine clean, guest and family-friendly, affordable, and spacious, spacious, spacious. Our 1100 sq. ft., 2 bedroom and 2 bath suite was better than our NYC apartment.
Our family of six (mom, dad, and kids ages 6, 7, 10, and 11) stayed at Horizons during the week of November 30-December 7, 2003. We were completely satisfied with the quality of accomodations and amenities available.
My family and two of our friends stayed at the Marriott Horizons in Orlando in July of 2002 and absolutely enjoyed it. I am an owner there and am very glad for that! The accomodations are new and very luxurious. With two private bedrooms and bedding for six, it was perfect for my wife, 9-year old daughter and two of our friends. The resort caters to families and anyone who goes with a family will enjoy the main pool, which has a pirate ship in the middle of it. Even us adults enjoyed the fun it offered. There is so much to do in Orlando that a week doesn't even come close to giving you the time to explore it all.While we went to the Magic Kingdom, Universal was by far our favorite trip highlight. I would recommend this resort to anyone traveling to Orlando, and if you like it, I would highly suggest taking a sales presentation tour of the facility...It is well worth the investment.-A satisifed owner Mike
Loved the Horizons
Visited the Marriott Horizons during a recent visit to Orlando (Oct-2002). With 3 children, 10, 13 & 17, the Horizons resort was a home away from home, offering luxury accomodations in a relaxing setting in Orlando; all under the careful guidance of the Marriott Vacation Club.
With easy access to WDW, Sea World, and general features in the Orlando area, the Horizons provided an excellent and exciting adventure for our family. Children activities were numerous, and the staff couldn't have been more accomodating.
And yes, our family decided to purchase a week from the Marriot Vacation CLub based largely on the positive experience at this family resort.
