View Full Version : Orange Lake ?

Is there a new Orange Lake resort or was it just recently purchased by Holiday Inn? A co-worker says she is staying at a new resort but the pictures look like the same place I stayed in 2003. I am just curious as she is under the impression she will be able to walk to the WDW parks from her resort.

Same resort, just rebranded. No way you can walk from there to WDW in a reasonable time. Long distance hikers could do it, but not the rest of us.

Heck, no you can't walk easily. :rotfl: It's 3 miles or so from OL to the AK toll Plaza, which is the closest park. Plus, you'd have to walk down Hwy 192 to Black Lake Rd to Sherbeth Rd to Oscelola Parkway, all w/ no sidewalks.

When I stayed there in 2003, they did have shuttles, but they were not free. Don't know about now.

Straitlover gives great DRIVING directions!!! No, I would never be able to walk it, then walk another 7 miles in the parks and walk home!!! But, we drove that route every morning 2 weeks ago, and you are at the parks in no time! BTW, we LOVE our Orange Lake!!
