On our last day we got up early to pack our suitcases, and went to Denny's for breakfast. I had eggs, bacon and a hash brown.
After getting stuck in traffic we finally made it to Aquatica and it is the best water park I have ever been to. I was dying to go on all the slides. I put my suntan lotion on and went to Omaka Rocka, you go down on in ...

" I chose to get my hair styled as a 'Star Princess'. They twisted sections of my hair into a ponytail as well as putting in coloured fake hair into my ponytail. Then they put make-up on me and nail polish on my nails, added glitter to my hair. Next they gave me a sash to wear over the t-shirt and skirt they also gave me. I was then turned around in the chair to face the mirror. I just thought 'OMG, I look so beautiful' ...

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.
