Today we went to 1 of the four Disneyworld parks in Florida - Magic Kingdom. It was awesome! There were characters, parades, movies and rides, not to mention shops, restaurants and food places. We went on lots of rides and saw three movies. We went on the Splash Mountain where we got wet, Pirates of the Carribean where we saw pirates, "It's a …
Kids were up before breakfast checking out the park. To their delight they found cute furry squirrels scurrying around and of course at the sight of them, they scamperied nimbly up the closest trees. Papa Bear of course was impatient to get going to the Kennedy Space Centre which thankfully was only 20 minutes away from Mannatee RV Park here in …

After dinner yesterday I ordered our tickets for Universal Orlando on the internet. That ended up causing problems, but more on that later.
We went to Universal Orlando this morning. It was only about 12 miles from where we stayed. We arrived right at 09:00, opening time. Because we arrived when we did we were able to park fairly close. That ended up not making a great deal of difference; we walked a ton!

My flight to Orlando left on time and I managed to sleep a little on the short one hour flight! When I arrived I had to wait on Megan for an hour and a half, she was flying in from spending Thanksgiving with her family. Was so good to see her when she arrived, another friendly face :) ! We were both hungry so we went for breakfast and I treated Megan as a thank you! After that I just felt like sleeping somewhere, anywhere but Megan was working at 4pm and ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Wyndham Bonnet Creek Resort Orlando
My wife and I with two teenagers stayed the second week of March. We were guests of a friend but I don't think we stayed in his unit. The kids had such a great time they lost interest in going to the parks and the two days we did go were in a hurry to get back to the lazy river. Our balcony overlooked the golf course but it's not open yet and we had view of MGM's tower of terror. We watched their fireworks the first night but then found out that from the other side of the building we had a much better view of EPCOT's. Eating was limited but we took a tour and they told us a restaurant is about a year away and there would be 3 or 4 in a Wymdham hotel within two years. There was a temporary workout room. Their gym wasn't built yet either and there is supposed to be a spa also. There was only one building open it looked like two more were almost done. On the tour they showed an incredible 4 bedroom unit. Bigger and nicer than any timeshare I've seen. Expensive everything. I've toured Disney and Marriott in Orlando and the Disney on the Florida East coast. No comparison. This was maintained much better and I think that after the golf and restaurant opens I'll probably join. I would highly recomment this place for anyone staying in the Disney area.
Great Family Place
We enjoyed the last week of September at Bonnet Creek with our son and his family. The pool and lazy river were the delight of our two granddaughters. Disney staff in the welcome center at this resort were helpful with making plans for our days at Disney. The resort staff made every effort to make our stay enjoyable. Our two bedroom deluxe accomadations were beautifully decorated and supplied with all the comforts of home. We drove ourselves to Disney for our convenience, but the schedule seemed adequate to use shuttle busses. We plan to return next year.
We stayed at Bonnet Creek Sept. 24-Oct. 1, 2005. My parents are owners with Fairfield resorts and my inlaws went too. There were 8 in our party, including two kids under 5, and our accomodations were quite comfortable. We had 3 bedrooms and two baths. The rooms were lovely and the service was great.
Let me first say, my husband and I visit WDW annually. We have stayed on several WDW properties. This time we spent 7 days at Bonnet Creek and 3 days at the Shade of Green (military resort on Disney's property) at Magic Kingdom. We loved Bonnet Creek we are owners there. I must say we were pleasantly surprised how close we were to everything. We never use the Disney or anyone's transportation anyway. We always rent a car, I hate buses and hate the amount of time you spend waiting for a ride home. Nevertheless, I observed the bus schedule for Bonnet Creek to the parks; it picked up 5 times a day the first pickup at about 8:00 am next, 10:05am and so forth. We stayed during off peak time and the last park closed at 9pm and the final shuttle returning from the parks was about 10:15p.m. Bonnet Creek is literally located right next door to Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort to give you an idea how close it is to "Disney".
we are owners of the bonnet creek resort and this was our firs trip there to check it out. we found the accomodations wonderful, the view from the balcony excellent. everyone was nice, all the staff, helpful and the guests staying there were very nice and polite. good food at the little cafe they have. when this is all finished it will be a nice place.
We stayed at Bonnet Creek August 6th through the 13th. It was nice and clean. The sales pitch on it is not accurate. This may be in the gates of disney but it is not Disney. The biggest downfall is that the transportation is very weak. You only have a few times they will take you there and bring you back. It's not like disney buses running all the time. If you wated to stay at Disney for the shows at 9 PM you would have to find another way back. There last shuttle was at 8:45 .
This was our first trip to Orlando and we were pleasantly suprised at the quality of the resort and the location. It is right next to Disney's Caribbean Beach Club and down the street from MGM Studios, Epcot, Animal Kingdom, Blizzard Beach, and Downtown Disney. It has a lazy river, pool, two hot tubs, kiddie pool, recreation area with pool table and pingpong, a fitness center, and a small bar/snack bar. The rooms are large with leather sofa and chairs, bar stools at the kitchen counter, all the pots, pans, and place settings you need. It includes coffee maker (with free coffee), refrigerator, stove/oven, washer/dryer, balcony, toaster, iron/board, jacuzzi in the master bathroom, large shower, and oh yes, the pool is open 24 hours! The staff is very knowledgeable about the area and helped me find grocery stores and even the best places to eat. They have a free shuttle to the Disney parks, however, they don't pick up after the parks close. If you get a rental car, there is plenty of parking at the resort. You pay $8/day to park at the Disney parks and can use the same parking pass all day at all the parks so you can come and go as you please. The resort is building a golf course on the north side of the 2nd tower and it should be awesome. As of now they only have 110 of the proposed 744 units open so we were lucky to get in at this time of year. I would recommend this resort if you want to relax after a long day at the parks!
Very Nice! Accomodates Little Ones
Bonnet Creek is a fantastic facility! The rooms were clean and beautifully decorated. The staff was helpful and friendly. My favorite feature had to be the water playground for kids. I have a 3 1/2 yr and a 1 1/2 yr old and they loved playing in the kiddie pool and with the spray tubes/guns. There is also a lazy river, a large pool and a hot tub. I recommend taking a day off from Disney to enjoy Bonnet Creek's pools and relax!
This has to be one of the best places to stay in Orlando. The facility is awesome and as more sections are opened it will be even more incredible.
