... favourite attractions! In any case, on both of the evenings we had visited, we passed Peter Pan’s Flight and the stand-by line was way too long and fast passes were not an option. I had read about this ride, that it was an enjoyable oldie… we have never been on it before. So, this was the place we headed off to first. We hadn’t rushed, taking our time to walk through Cinderella’s castle and look at the ...
... time I played, 18 people auditioned, and I was one of the lucky six chosen. I think they were looking for a wide demographic, and having an old man in the competition filled a quota for them. In fact, they stereotype everyone, and the host and other players kept referring to me as 'the old man'. Whatever...I kicked your asses!
The second time I played, casting took place during the Christmas parade, so there were only five entrants. So, I ...

That would come next, on Bluto’s Bilge-Rat Barges, a little white-water rafting trip that was determined to get us thoroughly soaked.

Space Mountain has been a blast. I really feel like I've settled into my groove and have been making a lot of positive connections and relationships.

Historical Traveler Reviews Terra Verde Resort Kissimmee Florida
Felt good about picking this resort after reading the reviews. It did not disappoint!
Nice villa pity about the location
The villa we stayed in was excellent: service to the villa was good BUT! on the site were no shops for emergency items like bread ect: the bar at the pool was never open and the access to t the main road to the villa estate from walmart was horendus ( a death trap) while we were thete (3 weeks ) there were several crashes on the corner one fatal:on junction leading from Pocet road to bron road ( leading to walmart)
You needed to go to the supermarket because there was not shops open on the estate: where we stayed was nothing like the leaflet discribed,
Nothing was within walking distance the estate was way out: but like it said only mins by car
My sister & our family all stayed at Terre Verde for 4 days in a gorgeous 5 bedroom home. We had so much fun and room that 1 bedroom was never even used. Everyone had their own space and no one got in each others way. The community was great with a "cozy" feel to it. I felt secure and right at home. Definately plan to stay here from now own when visiting the Orlando area. Much cheaper way to go vs. hotels. Close to everything (ie Grocery stores, Target/Walmart, Parks, etc). Plenty of buffet dining restaurants and entertainment. The walk-in pool was the highlight for the kids (ages 7, 13 & 21) along with the basketball court, game room, and playground. My brother inlaw spent every morning in the Lounge area to have his daily cup of coffee & newspaper. I highly recommend this gated community home and know you will enjoy it as much as we did.
We've just returned from two relaxing weeks at Terra Verde. The location is approx 2½ miles off the 192, on Ponciana Blvd, which for anyone who knows Kissimmee fairly well will know it's perfectly located for the trips to the parks amongst other things. We stayed in a 3 bed townhouse on Flagler Beach Plc, it had all mod cons, was very spacious, clean and very beautifully furnished. We made full use of the hot tub out on the terrace, even on the cloudy days it was great to relax for a few minutes after a busy day out. The communial pool is great, most areas around the pool catch the sun all day and there are plenty of loungers/chairs too. It can get quite busy and noisy especially in the afternoons (although I have to say it's the adults that were making most noise and not the kids!) While we were there there was a house being completed right next to the pool so consquently there was alot of builders noise too. The house was almost finished as we were leaving so it shouldn't be a problem now. Theres a jacuzzi by the pool but I don't think it was working at all the whole time we were there. The internet room was handy to have, although alot of the time it was being taken up by children playing computer games! (there were signs up saying under 16's should be accompanied by a parent in all parts of the Clubhouse but I guess the parents preferred to stay by the pool, who can blame them?). The whole resort is kept clean and tidy and all the staff we came across were really friendly, even the gardeners and the secutity gate men! All in all, an excellent resort, so relaxing, we really didn't want to leave and we probably won't be staying in hotels in Florida again! it's Terra Verde for us again next year for sure!
We just spent a week at Terra Verde. Our whole family went and we stayed in a 6 bedroom 5.5 bathroom home and it was great. Everyone had plenty of room and the kids loved the pool and hot tub. Everything was easily accessible from our house and we are already planning our trip next year.
Went with travelcitydirect and stayed here for 2 weeks. We had a 4 bed 3 bath end town house with a splash pool etc....The facilities were great with a club house,sauna,running machines,lounge,hot tub,heated pool etc. The internet problem was with one of the 3 machines the other two were OK but it can get busy. Be direct and ask people how long they will be. (the first one on the left is the dud). Walmart 5 minutes away (turn rt out of the gates and then first rt up Orren Brown) Disney etc very accessible since Ponsiana Bvd where the resort is crosses the 192 and goes straight onto the 565 and thus to disney in the west and universal etc to the north. Reassuring that it is gated with security although it would have been useful for them to employ a grounds man to clear the rubbish from the edges of the lake which is in the middle of the resort although it does not detract too much from the overall ambience. Plenty of bird life and the crickets sing all night. Overall a 4* place to stay as long as have transport.
Home Away from Home
The first thing we liked upon arrival was a gated security entrance. Check in was painless and the staff were very friendly. We rented a 4 bedroom townhome which was outstanding. Everything was new with plenty of space.The kitchen,living room,all bedrooms were immaculate and spacious.We also had our own private pool in our own courtyard which was great. Our kids spent some time playing with other kids at the community pool. The clubhouse was well equipped with a fitness center, lounging room and internet cafe. The Resort itself is extremely tropical and located just minutes to Disney and all restaurants. On previous trips we have been way out on US27. This is much more accessible. Loved the Resort and had a wonderful vacation. Top score all around.
Great but Internet doesn't work
I have to say the apartment is great, most mod cons, The pool is great, the apartment spacious. Decor is cheap but perfectly acceptable. The apartments are close to a Wal-Mart and all the parks, about 6 miles to Disney. My only complaint is that I am writing this review from an Internet cafe at 5US$ an hour. Reason? The Internet at the Club house is very poor, the wireless is unusable, it would be so cool if it worked as our apartment receives it. The 3 PC's connected to the net are often crowded and usually don't work properly, the staff don't seem to care and think they know more about the net than you do. If you don't need Internet access though, the Apartments are great.
Stayed in 3b condo, all new, clean and it was great having washer and dryer. Also the hot tub in back is the best. Community pool and hot tub are also very nice. Would never stay in a hotel again. Price is about the same.
I just spent a week at a Terra Verde 3 BR condo and it was fantastic. It was brand new and we were the first residents of the place. The resort is gated, and has a nice clubhouse. In the clubhouse, they have internet access, pool, jacuzzi, sauna, half a basketball court, video games, and billiards. The unit we had was spacious, and included a large washer and dryer. The neighborhood was quiet and peaceful, so it was great to relax in after spending all day at the parks.
When we go back again to Orlando, Terra Verde is the first place we're going to look.
