Well we got up at lunch time. Shock horror I know! But we didn't get home until 3am this morning after 16 hours straight at Universal Studios! We then went shopping and boy did we buy jeans. I think we have enough to last us about 5 years! So with our extra suitcases I have a load of Christmas stuff and Carl's is full of jeans. ...
... get a locker for our phones! Once we were on the ride it seemed rather lame, then BAM Luke and I go down a ramp backwards and we are soaked haha!!! Worst seats possible lol! So after the ride we walked through the park a little and after a while of me whinging that I really am not interested in seeing the animals, we decided to leave (about 10am haha) we were pretty happy we had done all we wanted to there so we got the shuttle back to resort so we could dry ...
... days round evryon else, it was time for me to do th things I wanted to do before we left.
First on the agenda was to get silhouette picture of all the children. This was surprisingly quick - and very clever.
Then another studio shoot (as our photopass had got replaced mid way through the holiday and we had somehow got ...
... they said open the race was on, Wendy and Jack ran ( despite the staff saying to everyone not to run ) and were first to register for Jedi Training, scheduled for 9:20, now the only pending problem was the weather as they have no no hesitation in canceling if the rain comes, but we told Jack to be positive and it would be all ok.
Surprisingly we had time to go to Toy Story Mania and didn't even need fast passes as it had just opened and the wait was a mere 1o ...

The Casting Process
About an hour before the show, they have a casting process where you line up and they assign you a number and ask you to fill out a questionnaire. You basically have to lie and say you've never had a medical problem or any stress, hardship in life, etc. If you mark anything they don't like, they cut you.

Historical Traveler Reviews Continental Plaza Hotel Kissimmee
I don't know why I didn't believe the reviews posted. Wish I had. We were forced to stay here due to a package "deal" we purchased. Worst accomodations we've ever had. Mildew all over the inside of the shower curtain, noisy air conditioner. The carpeting was soaked near the entry door where the air conditioner was located. It was impossible to dry anything in the room because of the dampness. In fact, items that entered the room dry soon became damp. The sheets were paper thin as were the pillows. Never could get enough ice to fill the ice bucket. We were supposed to stay four nights - checked out after two. Never did figure out where the "beautiful lake scene" was. Can't figure where the "quality" comes in either. Do yourself a favor and pass on by the property and keep going.
Great if you like roaches
Good thing I paid dirt cheap for this place on priceline. There were ROACHES in my room, crawling out of the refrigerator, they crawled along the rugs and walls. They have the nerve to charge a $2 "resort" fee per day to cover the crappy 2-cup coffee maker and "pool towels" even if you never use them. Drunk students pounded on my walls and called my room at all hours. The "lake" next to the pool is nasty too.
Clean, safe, great value to go with the location
We spent 10 days here in May 2004. The room was clean and neatley kept. We found the staff to be friendly and helpful. There is something for everybody with the free breakfast. Lots of resaurants and shopping within walking distance. We used the free shuttle bus to WDW the first day, but preferred to drive ourselves because it was more convenient. I have spent alot more money at other motels and got much less in value. This is a great place to stay for the money and I would stay here again. I would recommend if you make your reservation over the internet, to call the motel direct and make sure that it is correct before embarking on your vacation.
Quality, not quality
A cheap place to sleep but you wouldn't want to live there! We arrived late at night and they didn't have the type of room I had reserved. The next morning, the front desk staff was less than honest with me about room availablilty. I was told there would be none available, (they were completely booked) when the guy standing behind me in line was checking out of the room type I wanted! I may have gotten a non-smoking room, but the smell when you walked in was terrible. Don't expect much when they say a free continential breakfast. Watered down juice, bagles without cream cheese, and donuts from a box were less than appetizing. They did have free transportation to the parks but only one bus per day and there was standing room only.
We pre-paid a one-night stay at the Quality Inn Maingate West using Expedia.com. We drove to Orlando and planned to arrive very, very late before we started a vacation at Port Orleans Riverside the next day. In order to save some money, we pre-paid the night at QIMW. When we arrived at 1:30 a.m., we were told that Choice Hotels had overbooked the hotel by seven rooms. They told us that we would have to go to a hotel 25 minutes away! We had three screaming kids in the car (who were awakened by the chaos) and were not about to go away from Disney when the entire purpose of staying there was to be as close as possible. We ended up paying way more for a room at Port Orleans Riverside for the night, but it was worth every penny to save our vacation. Thank you Disney!
One night was enough for us. We had 3 rooms. There was mildew on the ceiling of the shower and water pressure was poor. The air conditioners are very noisey and one only blew warm air. Sheets didn't fit the bed right and kept coming off and the pillows were nasty! I find it hard to believe that this hotel was refurbished as they advertised. I read previous view and decided to give them the benefit of the doubt. Big mistake. I should have listen to the reviews!
Our family spent 4 nights here. We were very pleased with our room. It was very neatly kept and we had no problems. The continental breakfast was very well done each morning. We had no problem finding something she would eat.
We will gladly stay there again if we go that way on vacation.
Never again. Room dirty and smelly, sheets that were a thousand years old that didn't fit the mattress, the smell was so bad my sinuses were out of control. When we turned on the air/heat device it blew out dirt that I wouldn't want to know the origin of. Toilet had a huge crack inside, wasn't sure it was safe. Moldy shower curtain. Please don't stay here, there are better options, you and your family deserve better. The Disney shuttle bus makes one of it's last stops here also, so if you even get on the bus you will be standing. Oh yea, the continental breakfast was also quite disgusting. I still feel dirty for sleeping there only one night.
only average place i'm afraid. claimed to have been refurbished.
however it had only been poorly re-decorated. Breakfeast was ok\good.
BEWARE i had some beer stolen out of the room, the front desk claimed the maid thought it was an empty bottle and on check out they tried to charge me for $3 worth of phone calls, when none were made. there are i'm sure better places for the price.
Clean rooms, courteous staff. Good continental breakfast.
