... went on the Woody coaster a few times before moving on. We went to the Simpsons. Rich took the older 3 while Rorke and I went on the twirl and hurl.

Today we were VIPs! We got an official tour guide just for us.
Our tour guide is Liz and she is a marine biologist from New York. She took us around the park, got us VIP seats at all the shows, she got us to feed the animals and also even arranged our food.
Having a VIP is "FANTASMIC!!!"

Then we went to go and get ice cream and I had a Mickey Mouse shaped magnum.
After ice cream Dad forced me to go on a Pirates of the Caribbean ride which I hated! I told Dad I wouldn't like it and I didn't. It was too dark with lots of creepy figures and fake canon balls dropping in to the water beside me. I got wet and cross.

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. ---
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.
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.
