The Grande Vista is a beautiful resort! I think you will love it there. The location is terrific. Right on the quiet end of I-Drive with a quick commute to all the parks and a grocery store (Publix) right down the road.

They recently put a beautiful new pool area in with a restaurant/bar that is right at the pool.

The villas themselves are very spacious and well laid out.

My only suggestion would be to make sure that you request a villa that has been refurbished....not sure if they have refurbished all the units yet. But I have heard complaints about people getting older units that were not as nice.

I'm sure you will have a wonderful trip!

I would try for the new section with the great new pool. We stayed last year and it was wonderful. I thought my room was great till we took the tour and then saw the newer rooms. They are all great but newer was better.

if you like wine - they have a wine tasting once a week - very, very popular - so sign up early.

It was great for $5 per person.

We stayed for 3 nights in April before the Poly and loved it. It was very beautiful and we loved our room in the Magellan building, top floor. It was very close to the main pool and check-in/store/etc.

I did like having the Publix and Walgreens nearby, but found it a bit of a hike to the parks...DH loved being away from the parks, but I was glad to get back to "Disney".

You'll love it! Have fun! Our 2BR villa was gorgeous and we never heard a peep from anyone!
