... SINGING anthems over the tannoy. I’m all for light heartedness, but nooooooo place for that on a plane! When I arrived to Orlando, it was about midnight, and it was too far/expensive to stay around there, so instead I opted to crash in the airport for a few hours. Fortunately Orlando airport is weeeeeeeeeelllllllll nice! I actually found a optimum position in the Hyatt Hotel lobby, and waited around there until someone naturally came and told me I was clearly too poor to ...
... she thinks we would, but not the dog??? Who's the crazy one), then we have John who said it reminded him of the Village of the Damned. I have to admit you didn't have to squint too hard to for the 2 geriatrics walking their poodle beside the lake to appear to be zombies out to eat your brains, so maybe they were right, maybe Celebration wasn't for us. Still it was a nice place to while away an hour and enjoy a coffee and people (or zombie) watch.
... idea of warning people before they drive past the entrance. Things I've noted about driving in Orlando: speed limits don't get complied with. Going less than 60 on the interstate is suicidal. There are no such things as slow lanes, roads split left and right with multiple junctions, so get in the lane you want and stay there. Indicators are optional and mostly used to show you are turning, not changing lane. Cars can suddenly pull ...

One show down, and many more followed throughout the day. With Main Street often closed down to accommodate different parades during the day, we got to dance in the street with the stars of the Incredibles, Jungle Book and Toy Story. During one parade...we were joined by ...

We were now ready to enter the most popular attraction in Disney world, this is Peter Pans Flying Adventure - this was a slow paced ride flying over the most beautiful painted
scenes and animated characters, again this was excellent but in my opinion it wouldn't be worthy of a 3 hour wait and i felt it was a bit overrated, Wendy tended to disagree
and thought it was well worth it, I know Lilia ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Ramada Orlando Downtown
My wife and I just returned back from a week in Orlando. I got placed at Ramada because of a Time-share deal. I arrived early on Sunday and did a pre-ckeck in. THe counter person asked me if I wanted a Kids Club Room. I said "no" she said she would give me a King bed room instead.
Nice Clean resort. Very Very Friendly staff. Rooms were well maintained. We stayed for 5 days.
It's your basic hotel.
I was concerned about this place given the negativity below, but found it to be a perfectly acceptable middle-of-the-road hotel. I've stayed at far worse and stayed at significantly better. It's a solid, dry, semi-convenient clean room within striking distance of most major destinations.
Is it the Bellagio? Not even close (no ,matter what the telemarketer told you).
If you expect a Days Inn, Holiday Inn, Comfort Inn, you won't be terribly disappointed.
It will do....
We stayed here on a last minute basis. We were looking for a room..
anywhere at 1 am in the morning.. and they had a room available. The lobby is really nice.. they have a nice work out room.. and a huge arcade area for the kids. The pool looked nice... and blue. I don't think I would consider this a resort... but it served it purpose. The rooms need some updating... new carpet . and new furniture.. but the bed slept great. I would stay here again.. but not if I was going just for a true vacation.
I must say I was nervous after reading all of the negative reviews on here. But I had already made the reservation and paid for the trip, so it was too late to change. Like the majority of the people staying here, I booked though a discounted agent and had to attend a timeshare presentation.
Covers the basics
My boyfriend and I stayed here July 2003 through an indepedent package deal that included Universal tickets. Check-in went quickly and there were carts available for easy luggage transport, bell service is also available. The rooms, halls and elevators were clean and the maid service was good. The water pressure was very poor. Balcony was kind-of beat up and most were obstructed by trees. Any meals that were offered were way too expensive. But a little coffee maker in the room covered breakfast. The staff was okay, but came across unprofessional. The pool was fine, but quickly filled up. Great location. We didn't pay full price for the rooms (package discounts), but I probably would consider staying here again if the standard prices were fair.
Give Paulie thumbs up for his special service
My family recently stayed at this resort 4-l4-03 for 5 days and had a great vacation. The rooms were clean and comfortable....We found the buffet breakfast wonderful and I loved the coffee. We had trouble getting our first night's accommodation, but was sent to another hotel as we arrived after midnight, but once Paulie spoke with me I decided to return to the Ramada and had an enjoyable time. Yes, the hotel is located close to a prison, but don't forget they are locked up. Not an episode ocurred that made us uneasy. In comparison to Port Orleans-Riverside at Disney, I would rather have stayed for our full vacation at the Ramada. Sincerely Your friends in R.I. Thanks Paulie see you next year,
Don't ever stay here
Don't be fooled. This property is less than acceptable. Do some research online and you'll find out just like we did. We'll never stay at a Ramada again.
....that was the only 'nice' thing about this property! The service here was AWFUL!!!!!!!!!! We stayed here Labor Day weekend and it was not a good holiday for us. The service from the front desk to food service was terrible. I don't think we saw an employee smile the whole time. One night when we ordered food, it came cold and when asked if we could have it reheated in a microwave they said the facility didn't own one, then they backed down and said that the room that had it was locked and "no one had a key." The room was uncomfortable. There was a crack in one of the walls that had been replastered about 5 times and it was peeling away from the wall. Went to the pool and they didn't have any clean towels but were going to get us some-- we stayed in the pool for nearly an hour *at night* waiting for the towels, which never came. The beds were sagging and sheets were stained. Trust me on this folks, not a place you would want to venture to. Keep on looking, something else definitely will catch your eye!
Well - I was suckered into this "fabulous" vacation....afterall, Ramada has a reputable name, doesn't it. The initial sales pitch was high pressured which should have been my first clue. The rooms in this recently renovated Plaza 1000 in Orlando were far below average. The mattresses sagged, the sheets were thin, wrinkled and did not even cover the mattress, the bedspread was tattered and worn. There must have been a 100 coats of paint covering the door and window sills. The rental car was a joke and directions were inaccurate. They would not give you the voucher for the cruise until you took their timeshare pitch. The "Imperial Majesty" was old and run down - however the crew were very nice and the beaches were great....I am writing the attorney general of Florida... Don't waste your money.
