Fantasy World Club Villas
Travel Blogs from Kissimmee
... the grounds. Oh my, it looks like the South Pacific with all the flora and fauna including many little friendly lizards. The pool was wonderful looking. There were little bridges and walkways, a sandy beach with hammocks, swings and palm trees that give you a sense of paradise.
Next on the monorail we traveled to The Contemporary. It was obviously built in the 1970's. It's a huge and in my opinion, ugly building with tacky murals on the inside. ...
... chrome and red leather complete with booth jukeboxes! Milk shakes all round! The afternoon arrived and off to Boggy Creek.. Airboat ride! Much to 'Chad's' (the driver) amusement he ended up with me quizzing him about the engine- he was surprised when I asked what type of Chevy engine it was :) 505 cubic inch big block pushing 475 horses ...
... Everest we decided to grab a quick bite to eat for breakfast before the Safari Fastpasses matured. We decided to grab something light at Tamu Tamu in Africa. They’ve got a nice breakfast selection of fruit salad, yogurt parfaits, flat bread breakfast sandwiches and French Toast – so maybe not so light, but it was good.
After breakfast we had a great safari on Kilimanjaro and then proceeded to hit the animal trails and then all of ...
... fourth time thats happened for me to see a parade without really trying!
As we left, Scott had melt down re pin trading in guest services and told me (not for the first time this holiday" how I dont care, dont help, dont ever consider him and am very unfair.)
*Sigh* Sometims th pin trading has been a bad idea as he and Gareth have both decided to ...
... to stand in line for 45 minutes like we did- there are plenty of seats. "Fantasmic" was, however, well worth waiting for! All the classic Disney characters with amazing technology combining laser lights, fireworks, pyrotechnics, water effects-okay, this one is undescribable. The little girl in front of me said it all when she kept saying "Daddy, is it real???" We were astounded!

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.
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.
