Travel Blogs from Kissimmee
Today my mom was returning home, so we decided to use this as our "down" day and take things as they come. We started off with breakfast at Bob Evans - Ok maybe doesn't seem like a big deal, but there are no Bob Evans where we now live in Texas. So this was a real treat for us, to pig out on biscuits and gravy, pancakes, all the popular BE eats. …
I had originally hoped that I would capture a great photo to start off the first trip entry of this blog. Maybe catch a shot of the Magic Kingdom on the way to the resort, or perhaps take a photo of the family waving excitedly on the plane...all of which only works when the travel day works. Our travel day had a few ups and a whole lotta downs. …
... I rained, AGAIN!! Not one fricking day without rain so far this "vacation". Leaving tomorrow for the ride back home and the weather forecast isn't looking dry. Sitting by the pool right now eating supper (pizza and Coors Light) and yup, it's raining. Tried to dry out the 5 pairs of sox I have since Sunday nite, with no luck, so had to ...
I recently booked another cruise aboard, this time it's aboard the Royal Caribbean Enchantment of the Sea. My family and I will be sailing in May 2013, going to the Bahamas. I only had to pay a $100 per person deposit and I already have my confirmation number. The expectation of taking a cruise is so exciting. I know It's seems so far away but times flies. I like the idea of booking a ...
... Hall! So I was devising ways I could get around (since you can't go onstage in a different land with a tomorrowland costume, cuz that'd be preposterous and "Bad Show" #disneyterminology.) So I ended up talking with a custodial manager who called my manager and informed him where I was and that I'd be taking a while. Then! Another cast member who's part of parade control pulled me aside and we went through this back way right into the middle of the parade prep so ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Liki Tiki Village Kissimmee
We just returned from a week stay at the Liki Tiki Village. We had a ground floor two bdrm unit in building 1000 and found it very nice. We liked being on the ground floor because our kids enjoyed playing in the grassy area behind our unit while we relaxed with cocktails on the patio. It was clean, nicely decorated and had everything we needed. You are provided with a "welcome pack" of sorts that has a roll of paper towel, extra tp, dishwasher detergent, dishwasher soap, and extra garbage bags. There are plenty of towels both for showering and use at the pools (6 of each.) With all of this and a vacuum and broom in the unit, there was no need for maid service. The washer and dryer in the unit was great - we just ran our pools towels and suits through a rinse in the washing machine and dried them in the dryer each night. There are garbage chutes next to the elevators which was convenient.
We had very high expectations taking our first vacation to Disney World and staying at the Liki Tiki Resort. We just got back home very early this morning. We had reserved a two bedroom town house. The house had been renovated but you could tell it was older. The guest bedroom had two small and very hard twin beds. There was not a bath included and no television. The room stayed very warm without any circulation while the rest of the house was cold. In attempt to circulate some air in that bedroom, we opened the attached door, which did not have a screen. That night my family had a war with the biggest mosquitos known to man. Kids were ducking under their covers and went out on a mission to destroy.
We are going back!
We went in May 2003 and we loved everything about it. It is a small family resort. I heard it's growing too and eventually it will become as big as Westgate and the Vistana :( We loved the fact that they had activities for the kids everyday and the Lua's and kaoroke was fun. The pools were not crowded. There is always somewhere to park close to your apartment and the housekeeping staff were the nicest we've ever met.
The apartment we stayed in were in the 1000 buildings (one of the newest) and it was clean and everything was nice. We were so comfortable here. We had a ball. It is located away from the hustle and bustle of Disney and we are going back again in October 2004. A++++
Liki Tiki Village, Great Place for Kids
I just got back from a stay at Liki Tiki Village in Orlando, it is right on 192 and very nice (it is a little out of the way but once I found the hotel i realized it was right up the street from the other hotels and 10 minutes from disney). The pool was nice and my 10 year old loved the waterslide and waves. The music and atmosphere was just like being in the Caribean. The rooms were very nice and if you ask for a room overlooking the pool and by the pond on the ground floor, the ducks come up to your room and eat, it was really one of the best places i have stayed in Orlando. I will definately go back again.
Great for families with young kids
Our family of five just returned from the Liki Tiki. It was a nice resort. Our kids (9 and under) enjoyed the water park and the 3-year-old just wanted to stay there and play. We also enjoyed the pools and ate at Shipwreck Sally's twice and went to the Polynesian show which was great. I would return any time. It is about 10-15 minutes from Disney and close to restaurants, shopping.
This resort needs some TLC
Just returned from a week stay at Liki Tiki on February 28, 2004. Room was not ready until after 4:00. The room had a horrible odor, like a backed up sewer. I bought scented candles and room spray. Couch was ugly and 2 wicker chairs very uncomfortable. We were in building 1000 which was the furthest away from the Water Park. Better to be in room 600-800. Water Park was nice but better suited for kids 8 and younger.
Staff was very friendly and helpful. Food at the Cababa was inexpensive and excellent. All and all, this resort needs some TLC.
We stayed here in Halloween 03. It's really hard to find if you arrive late as we did... it took us over 2 hours to get from the airport and it was 3 am before we finally got to bed. It''s close to Disney world but a good 25 minutes to International Drive. The kids loved the Water park, it's fantastic although the kids playground leaves a lot to be desired. Avoid the time share people..they will ring and ask you to come for a complimentary breakfast and fill out a questionnaire in exchange for $75, and 1 hour of your time...NOT TRUE it takes hours and it's so hard to get away and as for hanging around for the $75 your so glad to get out you'd nearly pay them the $75!! The staff on the gate and in Ship wreck Sallys are so friendly and all in all it's a great spot for a holiday. The apartments are fine, we had a lovley pool view, but you really feel your at the edge of everything here...
Stayed 6 nights from Jan 18 to 24, 2004 and was quite surprised when we drove up and saw that it was a gated community. At first glance the buildings looked old, but when we asked for a room over the waterpark, we were thrilled when we opened the door to our room. Booked thru CondoExpress.com and paid the extra for a deluxe one bedroom, but found out later, we actually had a one bedroom, no deluxe. We could complain about the extra 60 USD we paid and didn't get what we booked, but the suite ended up being just perfect for us and at $79 US a night, who could go wrong here??? If you go, stay in the high rise buildings, not the dilapated-looking townhouse structures (I think they might be three bedrooms - not sure though) and ask for a pool view, the sights are really quite lovely. You'll get a call asking you to come to the 'show' though and if you haven't signed up for breakfast and a tour, just politely decline. We could have paid $39 a night and done the song and dance with the timeshare people, but we experienced that on another trip to Disney and when they say and hour, don't believe it....we were held somewhat captive for almost three hours, so we've lived and learned not to do that again!!! Paying the extra and not having to worry about losing a few hours of your day was worth it to us, but you may not find it as much of an inconvenience as we did first time around. The waterpark is great for kids and they have a pool side bar with lunch menu. Calypso music to set the mood. Close your eyes and you'll think you're in the Caribbean! Suites were large with fully equipped kitchen, washer/dryer, dishwasher...really similiar to being at home. We saved a fortune going to Publix for groceries and eating alot of meals in our suite. I would recommend Liki Tiki to anyone travelling with kids and even for those adults who want to have a balance of sightseeing and relaxation. It's all there at Liki Tiki Village.
We Loved It
We loved everything about our week stay here the 1st of November,2003. I would recommend this resort to everyone.
Not Worth the Money!
This is Definately Not a 5 Star Facility! More like a 2 star! Looks nice on the outside, but I went without bed sheets the first night because I couldn't even get housekeeping to bring sheets. Also, coffee pot was broken and they charged me for extras after I checked out!!!
