We're taking a mini-vacation to Sea World/WDW next week and staying at the Hilton Grand Vacations Sea World. If you've stayed there, can you tell me what supplies are in the rooms? We have a two bedroom with a kitchen/washer/dryer. Are there pots/pans, glasses, plates, silverware, trash bags etc...? We're planning a few meals there and I don't want to be caught off guard not having anything to use to cook with. Thanks!!!

We stayed there in 2003 (I know, a loooong time ago)... at that time, they did have all the pots and pans, dishes, silverware you'd need. Service for 4 - if I remember correctly. Not sure about trash bags, I think housekeeping changed everything daily though. I remember that their water was horrible though - even when we made mac n' cheese - it made the macaroni taste awful... If you are doing a grocery stop - I'd definately grab a gallon or two of water to cook with.

Here's a couple of pics from our room - I am sure they've been updated, but the set up is probably the same - we also had a two bedroom... the main bedroom had a huge jacuzzi tub (never got a pic of that though). Hopefully someone has more recent pics for you.

THis was our kitchen (washer and dryer behind those double doors) :

Looking into the room from the main door... Kitchen was behind my right shoulder, main bedroom to the right and 2nd bedroom to the left:

Our 2nd bedroom (basically a reg hotel room, connected by a connecting door that they unlock for you):

One thing I want to add - their bus transportation was horrible!!! Not so bad to Sea World (we actually opted to walk back when we were done - it's really close)... but their Disney transport was awful - hopefully they've changed it - if you are planning to do Disney at all from this resort - I'd still rent a car.

Have fun! :)

We are HGVC owners, and last stayed at the Sea World location in 2010. Everything had been updated from the PP's photos. Pots, pans, dishes, silverware were provided. Also, I recall that the other HGVC resorts in Orlando do leave you 4-5 trash bags (the clear kind, not like Hefty), but those were sufficient for our stay. There were also 1 or 2 small boxes of Tide detergent, which was nice, even though we had brought our own.
