Off WDW Property Condos?

My friends are looking for a good, decent priced condo off property but near WDW. They have a family of 7, so needs to be big enough to accommodate all of them.

Any suggestions or reviews? TIA!

There are tons of good ones. I often rent from timeshare owners on sites like TUG2.net and Redweek.com.

Some we've done recently and really liked are Cypress Pointe and Cypress Point Grandvillas (the second bedroom in these is small, but they have tons of three bedrooms and that's what you would need), Sheraton Vistana resort (mostly two bedrooms, but they are lovely units (rencently remodeled) and sleep eight with the sleeper sofa), and Orange Lake. All of these resorts have lovely ammenities -- pools, tennis courts, some activities, etc.

If you need more than three bedrooms, you might want to do a home rental. Other posters could give you advice on that.

Orlando is wonderful for offsite accomodations -- so many great places at very affordable prices. The area has always been overbuilt and had great deals. I can find better deals here on accomodations than any other place I've ever visited when looking at quality for the price.

How many bedrooms do you need? If 3 is sufficient, we've rented in Windsor Palms a few times, both 3 BR condos and 3 BR town homes (just had one in August). The town homes are nice because they have a small pool. Otherwise, there is a community pool for the condos.

We paid $89/night for the 3 BR town house this year.
32 WDW trips since 1978 - 8 onsite, 23 offsite, 1 split on/off ; 1 Disneyland trip in 2005 - offsite (Fairfield Inn)

Why should I pay for my daughter's education when she already knows everything?
