... is also a big, big Disney fan and an annual pass-holder, so it was kinda like having a personal Disney expert/guide taking us out for the evening!
She picked us up at the front of our resort and drove us to "Fort Wilderness", which is the Disney Campground Resort, where you can rent campsites for tents, rent cabins/lodges or even rent space for the family recreational vehicle! Candace said her family had brought her here when she was young and had been back many times ...
Universal Studios via a fast track pass was the order of the day. The place is amazing, attention to detail was fab! The girls persuaded me to go in the 'mummy' ride convincing me it was like all the others and was just a simulator ride.... HE'LL NO!!! A roller coaster ride ensued!!!!! To say I felt sick at the ...
... After a further morning of fun and frolics we headed back in time to the 50's Prime Time Café for our lunch. Prime Time is one of those uniquely Disney restaurants that offers a one of a kind experience along with some gigantic and very enjoyable comfort food. Where else would a family go, hoping that Mummy gets told off for putting her elbows on the table or Daddy is chastised for not eating his greens. While it isn't advertised ...
... 8 months of travel, some of which had little or nothing to do with Europe but I liked the name and didn’t feel like coming up with a new one, so that was that. Besides, it’s not like Morocco is going to complain about being lumped in with the drinkable tap water and standardized trash collection of Europe. It all started In Bruges way back in September, before hitting Croatia and Italy and eventually tackling the Camino de Santiago in Spain, spending a couple ...
... along in a space ship in a little star wars adventure - apparently it has been revamped and certainly matt said it was better than the one at Disney Paris they went on a couple of years ago. As it turned out Duncan loved it and wants to go back on it - but Lara didnt like the way it made her stomach feel and felt quite queasy when she came off.
We were on a tight schedule then and went running to Indiana Jone ...

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.
