I think we are going to give kissimmee a go this year as our hotel destination for something diffrent and a fair bit cheaper.
I was wondering has anyone any recommendations for differnt restaurants to the ones on idrive, I.e chiilis, tgis, olive garden. We will try some diffrent places. I think we wil be staying at seralago hotel, if anyone knows it.

We have stayed more or less opposite a couple of times, Now Holiday Inn, formerly Travelodge Maingate East.
Going East out towards Kissimmee within 5 mins drive there are all the places you listed plus Cracker Barrell, Smokey Bones & others. Within walking distance are Red Lobster, Chinese buffet(Pagoda Garden?) Logan Roadhouse, KFC, Pizza Hut, BK & MD's, Ponderosa & Old Town.
We enjoyed our stays down there but after staying at LBV not been back, found we much prefer LBV area.
The Seralago looks to get good reviews http://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowUserReviews-g34352-d88087-r27883556-Seralago_Hotel_and_Suites-Kissimmee_Florida.html

Monarch.co.uk look to be the cheapest, used them at Easter for Hampton Inn LBV, booked with them again for our 1st night in August for Country Inn & Suites LBV.

359.75 less 5% (17.99) Quidco = 341.76

They also have Best Western Lakeside (similar price) which is a good value resort on 192, stayed there 3 times but its about 5 miles further west.

A cheaper resort between the 2, Ramada Plaza Gateway Kissimmee, not looked at reviews recently, used to be OK but check.

Somewhere we considered staying at for Easter right outside Disney, LBV Orlando Vista Lake Buena Vista. Great location if you like a drink, 3 min walk to Orlando Ale House.

Or a little more money again LBV, got good reviews when I last looked ESD Extended Stay Deluxe Lake Buena Vista Lake Buena Vista

Yeah i like the odd drink or 2 so, some nites ill walk to restaurants for this, so if lbv has alot of restaurants within walking distance id be tempted.
Basically im looking for a nice hotel with a pool not by a roadside, as we have our young daughter going who is 2.
I dont want to pay more than 400 for the hotel and the cheaper the better, but also want the hotel to be quite safe, i.e have a reception going into hotel, not rooms where its easily accesible for the public?
Thanks also for the prices.

I would rule out BW lakeside then, its more a motel with easy access to rooms, you park right outside most rooms.

ESD, LBV is not within walking distance of anything, car needed to go for meals.

Orlando Vista has had a few poor reviews but they were good when I looked at Easter, although you can't always believe Tripadvisor, other hotels have been known to leave bad reviews on competition.

Might be best with your original choice.:goodvibes
