... cool. For some reason, Animal Kingdom is one of the parks where people complain the most about the heat, which doesn't make sense as it is surrounded by trees and jungle... We were chased by dinosaurs in Dinoland and tossed around in a spinning coaster, Primeval Whirl before spotting that wild dawg Goofy. We keep wondering what the difference between Goofy and Pluto is... Well, Sam found the explanation that Pluto is a dawg dawg (doesn't wear ...
Sometimes doing things on holiday in America makes me a little depressed. Not because the activity itself was disappointing, quite the reverse, because it was so much better than doing the same thing at home. This morning we decided to take it easy and take the kids to the cinema to see Disney's Planes (a film for which I had very little expectation but actually quite enjoyed) as Tyler has been watching TV ...
So here we are in Orlando, Florida, incidentally right at the start of hurricane season!
We got here on Sunday (2nd June) and after a short delay checking in (the hotel never received our booking!) we collapsed in to bed to try and catch up on some sleep after our epic journey from Nashville!
We had booked to stay for 18 nights in Orlando – the longest we have stayed anywhere since leaving Australia. This is because we ...
... whether we have picked bad days but we feel the crowds here far more.
Matt zipped off to Test Track to find out how to do child swap as Duncan was NOT going to go on it again. They told us to go in and sort it out at the cars, so we all designed our cars and headed down (having checked with two more people on the way) only to have some stroppy staff at the "car loadig" area tell us we shouldnt ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Four Points by Sheraton Studio City Hotel Orlando
The hotel was really nice for the low price that we paid. The front desk clerks were very friendly, and awesome with the kids, they even gave us popcorn while we were checking in. The room was decorated really nice with a Marilyn Monroe theme and a lovely view of Orlando.
Brilliant hotel, fun for all the family!!!!!!!
Absolutly brilliant hotel, recommended to anybody. It has the best location as it is ajacent to Wet`n`Wild, walking distance to shops and restaurantes and close to uniiversal studios and disney. As for the hotel itself, the staff were extremly friendly, every where was perfectly cleaned, the pool was fabulous and even though it was busy, it seemed very peaceful and reaxing. The kids loved it there, same with the adults, it was the perfect hotel in the perfect location! When I visit Orlando again, I will definetly stay there again.
Location is perfect if you are looking to avoid the congested international drive area. Shuttles were convienient, crowded at times.
Hotel room smelled a bit musty at first, but was very clean overall.
Pool was warm and clean, fun atmosphere overall. We had 5 day passes to UO and IOA, we would have spent alot more time stuck in traffic had we stayed in a hotel further south on International Dr. EZ access to park entrances.
My husband and I just returned from Orlando where we stayed 5 nights at this hotel. I had read some negative reviews on this hotel so I was a little hesitant to book a room there. But I'm sure glad I did!! We had a suite on the 21st floor. It is worth the extra money to have the great view and the bigger room! The staff, housekeeping, the bellman, the front desk staff, everyone was super helpful. I would recommend this hotel to anyone and can't wait to return!
I was concerned about this hotel after reading some reviews, but got a super rate through Priceline. I'm very picky and can honestly say that I was very happy with this hotel. The staff, from the check in desk, to bartender, and others wandering the halls were extrememly friendly. The lobby is fun, elevators fast, and room very comfortable and clean. I was given an upgrade to an upper floor and the view of Universal was amazing! This hotel is advertising an upgrade of their bedding to somthing like Westin's Heavenly Bed which will make it all the better.
Only draw back was no hot tub/jacuzzi on property. Great centralized location...easy drive to Universal and Disney....free hotel transportation is offered, but times are not very convenient.
Fabulous Stay....SHERATON STUDIO CITY!!!!
Fabulous Hotel!......We have stayed at many hotels in Orlando/Disney area and tried this hotel for the 1st time. The friendliness and professionalism of the staff was OUTSTANDING!!!!!.....They have free transportation to Disney and Universal Studios.....Alot of shopping and action in the area, all in walking distance...I highly recommend the Sheraton Studio City...I will share with all my family and friends how wonderful this hotel is...P.S. They give fresh hot popcorn and check in for free!!!!!!!!yummy!!!..Thank you!
The worst customer service ever
I was lost and the front desk gave four different versions of directions. They had a problem with the correct exit, for example I was told 78A but it was 75A. The last time I called the person finally figured he would grab the map to help me out.I was very annoyed and this set me back for 1 1/2 hours looking for the hotel. Then to top it off, I reserved a room with a king bed or a room with two queens, but I got one queen sized bed. Then, I was told the shuttle would run all night to drop people off at Halloween Horror nights but really the last one left at ten, and we missed it because of bad direstions. Also, only one room key worked.I will never stay here again and would not recomend it to anyone EVER!
My family and I traveled to Orlando and stayed here at the last minute since another hotel had lost our reservations. I called and the person at the desk was very helpful and got us a room at a pretty good price.
NOT for business travelers
Not for the business traveler. Tons of teenagers with cases of beer and plenty of noise. Seemed great if that is your scene though.
We loved the SSC. The rooms were great, There are three elevators, so practically no waiting. Transportation to the attractions. Just a few minutes drive to Universal. I highly recommend it.
