Radisson Resort Orlando-Celebration

... was kinda cute. Some of the other rides we missed and wanted to ride were Country Bear Jamboree, I can't say I liked this one. The songs were dumb and old and the bears faces were ugly and creepy. We also rode the Tomorrow Land Speedway, Stich's Great Escape, the Carousel of Progress, the Liberty Square River Boat and the Hall of Presidents which was surprisingly good. Somewhere in the middle of this we decided to have a light lunch at the Liberty Tree Tavern. ...
I'm sitting here (on day 5) at Disney's Blizzard Beach and it has free wifi so will upload the photos from my phone and we'll write about the day at Hollywood studios yesterday later. Suffice to say that we had another great day and the kids continued the theme of being much braver than their parents when it comes to roller coasters! Here are some photos in the meantime. ...
... to be the hottest day so far for us, so I don't mind staying at the house so we can re hydrate and recharge our batteries. Will probably go out mini-golfing and hit Old Town tonight as I'm sure we'll need to get out of the house at some point. Laundy machines are going all day today too, thanks to Tracy - the laundry person of the family.
... just makes you feel so vunerable. They were fast. And while mean, they weren't vicious. No knives or guns, no injuries, just a scarey encounter that made us glad to be heading for home.
I'm actually writing this a week and a half later as we sit safe and secure with family in Florida. It takes some time to unlock and be able to look at it with some distance. Even though we weren't hurt--we weren't even threatened--it was most unpleasant.
... from the film. Despicable me features heavily as Universals latest animated success story, with spontaneous street parades, dancers in costume, playing with the kids, posing for photos and making big-grinned huge merriment while onlookers suck on candy floss, jumbo cokes and popcorn. But that's not why we decided to go (phew). We were more interested in the 'Universal Islands of Adventure' , a separate park of equal size next door, still run by ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Radisson Resort Orlando-Celebration Kissimmee
I think all of you people are in a dream world!
Okay.... Spent 13 days in Disney and stayed at the carribean beach resort (BEAUTIFUT)... The last 3 day of our vacation my husband and I decided to relax at the Radisson Resort Parkway... On May 27 @ 4:00 we checked in... We used mousesavers and got a discounted rate of $63.00 per night... Sounds good huh??? Well not good enough!! I would not stay in the pig hole for free.... The room was so DIRTY! Ok here is the list!!!!! Bed sheets had stains on them-Rug was dirty-shower walls looked like someone spit on them and it was not cleaned off-towels had black curly hair on them-someones clothing tags were left on the bed spread-knob for the little bar feel off when I touched it-windows were dirty.....Do your self a favor, Check Mousesavers for discount codes for inside Disney..... DO NOT STAY OUT SIDE....It was gross!Michele
Radisson Resort Parkway, Room to Relax
We stayed at the Radisson Resort Parkway and it was very nice. The pool is great, especially for kids and it is huge. We also enjoyed that there was plenty of space to do things outside that didn't cost you a ticket. We recommend them.
A Big Hit with the Family
One of the best value for money hotels we have stayed in. We would certainly look at staying there again on our next trip.
We got a great room rate for this hotel using our Entertainment Book card. The staff was very helpful (even helped us when our son lost his contact lens case!) and courteous. Our room had 2 double beds with a marble floored bathroom. It was very clean and quiet. We opted for the small room fridge for around $5 a day and combined with the coffee maker/inroom coffee we had all we needed. We were in the 3000 building which was close enough to the lobby, pools, and shuttle pick-up without having any of the noise. Though we spent most of our days at the theme parks, we had time in the late afternoon/evenings to enjoy the pools (our kids loved the waterslides and the waterfalls). If we had more time, we would have gladly spent an extra day just to relax by the pool.The shuttles were always on time and the drivers were pleasant. The only way it could be improved upon would be if the hotel would add a midday shuttle to allow people to take a break. It was nice to have shuttles that ran not only to WDW but to Universal and Sea World.We did not eat onsite much though we did have the Pizza Hut pizza one night which was ordered in the cafe. The hotel is very close to other restaurants/shopping/grocery stores. The grounds of this hotel were beautiful with alot of lush landscaping. Each room had an in-room safe and the parking lot was gated with a security code access. All in all, we had a very enjoyable time and would return to this hotel if we go to Orlando again.
Great place to stay!!!!
My stay at The Radisson Parkway Resort in Orlando was a pleasant surprise. The rooms are clean and newly refurbished. The grounds are lovely , lush and tropical. I have stayed at the Mirage in Las Vegas and the grounds are similar to The Mirage's. The three pools and two hot tubs are well kept and very delightful. There are restaurants, coffee shop and fitness club on the grounds. If you want a great location and all the amenities, try it.
The best but!!!
The hotel was great. The kids loved it,the pools were a hit. The rooms were quiet and beds very comfortable. The breakfast was great. The service was good. But.,in the loby there is a desk that says disney tickets, we were told if we go see their new hotel we would save $150 on our disney tickets we just need to go for a tour and free dinner it will take 90 minutes. Well we were picked up and driven to a condo and brought into a large room(portable)with paper plates and buns we were asked to pay $30 towards our disney tickets, well it was a scam and we got back to the hotel but waisted a night. i guess we should have known better. The desk in the loby was rented out to this condo place and had nothing to do with the hotel.
Great time here
we stayed here may 02, this is a great place for the pools. they have 2 huge pools, one with a waterfall that u can go underneath, every where was waterfalls, even one comming down into the hottub! pizza hut was on the primisis. the only bad thing was the employees, they were rude. they gave us a key to someone's room that was still there. when we 1st got there a guy that cked us in was quitting and he was blowing off steam and takeing it out on us,very unproffesional and, not what we wanted to hear after 12 hrs ion a bus! i would go backthough cause u can't beat the pools and the hot tubs!
Wonderful haven of rest
We stayed at this Radisson mainly because of the proximity to Disney as well as the free shuttle service there.
The hotel was great, my kids could not have asked for more.
I would recommend this to everyone.
Great Place, great value
We had a great time at this all-inclusive resort.
We booked it online and received a great deal,
My kids had a blast, and so did me and my husband.
Service is terrific and pools are great.
Quoted room rate not honored
I want to tell you about the traveler's nightmare I experienced with Radisson Resort Parkway.
In February, after looking at websites, I called the 800 number for the Radisson Resort Parkway asked for the mousesavers rate and the agent told me I needed to shift my vacation one day to start on April 2 and I would get a rate of $69 per night per room. Now this was lower than the advertised mousesavers rate for the period - but I wasn't going to complain. So I booked 2 rooms for 3 nights in April ( 2,3,4) and requested adjoining rooms with one king and the other with 2 double beds.
So we arrived at the Radisson on April 2 at 7pm after spending all day at the Magic Kingdom - and when we started to checkin we were told the rate was $129 per room. We spent an hour and a half on the phone with Corporate and talking to the front desk to no avail. The guy at the front desk, Jeff Schmitz insisted that since the reservation had been made through corporate reservations - only they could decide to change the rate. So we called Corporate and were repeatedly put on hold... apparently - corporate was calling Jeff - who would excuse himself to go in the back to talk on the phone with them... anyway I could go thru all the details - but it seems that there was no one at corporate with enough authority to make a decision.
Jeff told us we 'should' have got the name of the agent who promised us the rate and asked for a written confirmation. ( we had a confirmation number - but that wasn't sufficient)
Jeff also told us that we had the rooms we had requested - but when we finally got to our rooms they were not what we requested - we had two rooms each with a king - and they were not adjoining. When we returned to the front desk ( now 9 pm for a saga that started a 7pm) - jeff had gone to dinner and his lt. promptly reduced the price to $99 /room since they were not what we had reserved.
We only stayed that one night and went to the Hampton Inn in Winter Haven - which had much nicer rooms and fabulous service.
