... around through the marshes and saw a nesting crane and a few alligators too. On the downside, as we were at the front we bore the brunt of the bugs so I was scratching all day from the bites; we also spent a long time on the ride brushing millions of insects of us and Boylan's sunglasses brought about the end of quite a few bugs as well! After that, we got to hold a baby alligator that a company had brought along to promote themselves but unfortunately we were banned ...
... to a great cocktail recaption with 80 of our new best friends, and had a delicious dinner served by the Ritz staff.
Tomorrow we rise early and head for Sanford, FL to meet the pilots and crew and take the 757 jet, configured for 80 passengers and operated for TCS by IcelandAir, to our first destination, Peru.
... time with the ride officials as 3 of the children had to be accompanied by adults and they wouldn't let one ride with the older children as they were only 7. You could see the disappointment on not only the adult's faces as one would have to line up twice but also the children's faces. I offered to take one as Carl and I don't have to sit together. Well they quickly took up the offer. Now we were all set. Me with my new little friend aka chatter box (about 3 ...
... tell you about our day, I would just like to say that when you are a seasoned world traveller, like me, you very quickly learn that the most important thing is to dress appropriately for the country you are in.
For instance, here in Orlando Florida it is vital that you don't "stand out" like a tourist, for that would make you a target for the various scammers, ...
This morning I got up early and went for a run around the resort. I ran around the North and East villages, a lot further than I was planning on doing but it was a gorgeous morning and I got to see a beautiful sunrise. On route back I saw an armadillo trying to cross the road but I spooked it. Everyone was still asleep when I got back. Slowly they all got up. We had breakfast and then headed across to the River ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Fantasy World Club Villas Kissimmee
my family stayed in 2 villas over the christmas period of 2003 i found them clean and spacious with all mod cons . we had great bus service to the parks helpfull staff and lovely grounds. much much better than anywhere in the uk. i was dreading going after reading the reports but it was the best accomodation i stayed in in florida. thanks for a great holiday fantasy world.
Very nice for the what we paid
We were very satisfied with the villas. They are not beautiful, but are as clean as what we keep our own house.For the price they were great.
No problems during our 4 night stay! Very satisfied and would go again!
Not Bad--Seen Worse
y family have just returned from our holiday. We stayed at the Fantasy World Club Villas. We found the villa to be ok, but in serious need of up-dating. There was alot of workers sround too which could be un-nerving as they would just walk into the area at the back of the villa un-announced. If the place had a face lift would use them again as someone else said with so much to do you dont spend too much time there anyway. Oh, but whats with the little ants scurrying everywhere!!
They were in the downstairs bathroom and when we first got there all over the worktops in the kitchen!!!
This place was truly disgusting. It was old, dark and depressing. The kitchen cabinets were peeling, the tile floors are old and dirty, the upstairs bedrooms were old and the carpet was scuzzy and the bathrooms are at least 30 years old. Even if you are on a tight budget, I would not stay here. The maid service is extra and it is not worth it. They don't clean the tables or even push in the chairs. -- UGHHHHHHHHHHH -- NEVER AGAIN. We went onto their website and thought this would be a nice place to say and it is very misleading. The grounds are old and there is no landscaping. The only nice thing about this place was the lobby area.DON'T WASTE YOUR $$$$$$$$.
Hated This Place
This is a horrible place to stay. The rooms are run down and dark. The rooms are not well equipped. The bathrooms are old. The towels are like scouring pads along with the sheets. Maid service is extra and it sucks. The lobby is the nicest part of these villas. I wouldn't stay here again if the rooms were for free. This place needs a HUGE FACELIFT. The pictures on line must be 30 years old. I give this place a negative rating.DOn't waste your money.
Excellent Place to Stay
Recently stayed at this place for 3 nights with family. Close to all attractions and the place is a well maintained one, both inside the condo and outside.
Staff was curtious and helpful.
Only thing I didn't like is that, one of the staff member, gave us the wrong direction. That is not acceptable. Get directions from I-4 not from Florida TPK.
Tiles in side the condo were too old and not attractive.
The villas are all a bit shabby and run down. Ours was very dark inside and the covered outside area had wholes in and was very dirty and looked out over a road. The pools are nice but some villas are very dar waway from them. The club house and main pool are very good and so is the small shop. However we went out as much as we could to get away from the place as it was a little dark and depressing, however it is good for a tight budget and who needs to spend all there time inside when there is so much to do!
Just back from a great stay in Fantasy World, Kissimmee. Rooms were big, clean and well equipped. Staff were extremely helpful and the shuttle buses to all parks were an added bonus. Would definitely stay there again.
Let's hope it has improved!
We've stayed at FantasyWorld on three occasions. Each time it got worse than the time before. The pool is nice enough, but the units kept deteriorating. These places get a lot of use -- let's face it, they're relatively inexpensive and can accommodate a family. The unit during out last visit was run down, the toaster was broken (this has happened each time we stayed there!), the dryer wouldn't heat up again if you opened it during the cycle checked on your clothes, the bedroom closet doors were off their track, and there was stuff splashed all over on the wall behind the headboard in the master bedroom. We asked for another unit and was told this was all they had available. We called housekeeping to clean the wall more than once and they never came. We haven't been back in a couple of years (and there's a reason for that), but I'm hoping they're paying more attention to things than what we experienced.
Fantastic time in Florida
My husband and I were just at the Fantasy World Resort in May, 2003. It was the perfect time of year for us to travel with our three kids. The in-laws went with us. We found our accomodations perfect for us. Our rooms were located at the pool, jacuzzi, basketball courts and playground.The staff was wonderful to deal with.The resort was located close to all the things we were interested in (i.e. church, Disney, the petting farm, horseback riding, grocery stores, THE OLIVE GARDEN, etc).We had a wonderfully relaxing stay and would DEFINITLY stay again.
