Historical Traveler Reviews Celebration World Resort Kissimmee
Little to Celebrate
We stayed at Celebration for a week last May 2003, I was also disappointed in the so called resort. First of all the complex is too small to be called a resort, when i booked the room i was told i would have a king size bed and when we arrive the king shrinks into a full size. Only one pool for the kids and adults. The workout room if your not a owner you have to pay to use it, location could have been better.
No activities what so ever anywhere. Staff was very courteous, but i would never stay there again.
You people are so picky! My goodness, listen to you! You are making a perfectly nice resort hotel sound like a one-star dump! This is a wonderful place to stay, especially when you can get a rate of only $25 a night (cheaper than most one and two star hotels/motels) just for listening to some time-share promo and getting a free breakfast. ---
Good... if you get it at a discount
My husband and I stayed at Celebration after getting a rate of $25 online, agreeing to the promotional pitch in return. You can get other hotels in Orlando for $25, but this is a lot nicer. On the other hand, I would not pay full price for it and had no interest in buying. Pros: Close to attractions, pool and hot tub never busy (at least in winter months), kitchen and laundry in room. Cons: Thin walls. You can hear everything outside and a lot inside. Air conditioner didn't work well.
No maid service. Not a lot of recreation options yet. We were very disappointed that our one-bedroom did not come with a jacuzzi tub. We saw a diagram online of the rooms and it showed one, but we just had a standard tub/shower. Not being "wowed" with the hotel like we had hoped, we attempted to check out early on our five-day reservation, but we would not be getting a refund on the unused days, so we just stayed.
Like I said, it was fine, but just... fine. I would have expected the resort to make the rooms fancier to intice people to buy in. The timeshare pitch was two hours and our salesman was very nice, but they are persistent. We told him no and were not bothered again for the rest of our stay. I would only stay here again if I was getting the low promotional rate.
This is no resort
This place only has a name and nothing to back it. There were not enough services provided for example we had to call for linen after the 3rd day and no one ever came to clean the rooms. No entertainment for the kids it was like a ghost town. I'll never go there again.
I wish I was not an owner!
I unfortunately bought into this resort before it was completed and it was the biggest mistake. If I had any words of advise to someone planning a trip for fun in the area it would be to check in somewhere (anywhere) else!
The hidden secret
I found the resort to be one of the hidden secrets of Florida's resorts. The people treated my family with great hospitality and honesty. We stayed 2 nights and already had reservations at another resort starting the third night. After being at Celebration, we knew in order to keep our vacation on a high level, we decided to call them back and see if we can complete our vacation at the resort. They made it happen. We decided to purchase a 1 bedroom time share at Celebration.
Give it time......
We own a large 1 bedroom condo at Celebration. The units are very clean and large enough for the four of us. The kids love the pool which is never too busy. This is a new resort with limited ammenities to date,,,,but it seems like the long term plans will make this a great resort. It is fairly quiet, which is perfect if you plan on relaxing.
If you want activities and go go go atmosphere, go somewhere else.
When I'm on vacation I love to relax and that's what I get at Celebration.
we stayed at this resort june 2003.. it was horrible! the room was very clean and new but the furnishing was horrible the beds were so not comfy at all. everytime another guest flushed the tiolet you heard it loud and clear. needless to say we had our room for 7 days but after 2 we had enough and checked out.
Celebration World Resort
I found the people there so nice and kind. We enjoyed our stay so much that we bought a 1 bedroom timeshare villa at Celebration.
Not much to celebrate!
The name is a bit misleading, there was not much to celebrate and it was certainly not a resort. While the property was okay, it is more like a hotel suite than a resort condo. We were extremely disappointed and left after the first night of our week to move to a more resort like atmosphere.

Choosing to round off our trip with five days in Orlando was an attempt to give the girls a taste of America before heading back to Oz. There are basically 2 things to do in Orlando. Visit theme parks and go shopping. Between us we spent five days doing plenty of both. The highways around Orlando are many and complex. The entire urban area is a vast sprawling mass. Every corner has a strip mall or a factory outlet. There are condominium developments as far as the ...
... this out - there's always an hour plus wait on standby but I got us some Fastpasses as my two princesses wouldn't ride the Aerosmith Rockin' coaster! Really cool ride - a 4D sideshow alley shooting type ride, lots of fun. We then hit the standby line for the Star Tours ride - 20 min standby was a good wait prior to our Indiana Jones stunt show...but we were blocked by the Fastpass freak. Now there's fast pass and then there's are you serious? This person was letting 50 plus ...
... Crab Shack, Outlets, watched fireworks from the ferry boat, ate everything in sight and WE DONT REGRET ANYTHING! Gained 5 lbs but hey it was VACAY!
If you ever have the opportunity to take your loved ones to Disney in ORLANDO.. Please do it.. save, save, save.. get a hang of the fast pass because that little devil is love at first site! :) ...
... entrance, where we stored a change of shoes, umbrellas, etc. Very handy. Worth the money.
It was drizzling slightly as we arrived so our first photos show us in ponchos and raincoats (suggest you buy these at a Dollar Store and bring with you, rather than paying $10 for the Disney version). But we quickly were able to ditch them (quick trip back to the locker) when the rain disappeared.
We headed straight to ...
... shortbread cream on top. By the afternoon, Harry Potter World was pretty crowded but even so, we still managed to do the ride a couple of times.
After a full day of walking around, we went out for dinner at Applebee's and it was really good. The ambience was great and the food was tasty and cheap compared to back home. It was only $62 for all of us for drinks and meals plus tip. Still, we couldn't get dinner out for that price at home.
