Wyndham Bonnet Creek is as close to disney as you can get without being in a disney hotel. It is a beautiful timeshare resort with great rates. We paid more for our room at the Comfort Suites than we paid for a 2 BR condo. Check e-bay for great rates.

Angry Windsor Palms

It is an aging resort with Avery nice pool, friendly staff, nice bbqs, but if you have a problem with a flood from a water heater in the unit aboveyou, no one is responsible, not Windsor palms, not the people you rented from, not the people who owned the unit above you who had the water heater in a cracked pan and not connected to an outside drain!!!

You will have to cover your own losses, and believe me homeowners is only good for thousands of dollars in losses, and travel insurance does not cover flood from plumbing problems. Also, when we were there they were repairing another unit where there had been a fire!!! So, avoid Windsor Palms, unless you have excellent travel insurance!!!!!

Whoa! I'm not sure what happened to you at Windsor Palms but please don't trash an entire neighborhood due to one bad experience. WP is a gated community made up of hundreds of single homes, condos and town houses, both rentals and owner-occupied units. We've rented there many times and will be checking in to a townhouse there on Friday. I highly recommend it to those looking to rent offsite for many reasons.

What happens if a pipe bursts and the unit gets flooded? I would imagine the exact same thing as if a hotel pipe bursts and my hotel room gets flooded. Our stuff gets wet. We wouldn't have "thousands of dollars in losses" because we don't travel with thousands of dollars of stuff. And most of the stuff would be clothing that could be washed. We might lose a suitcase or two and maybe a laptop but that's about it. And that could happen in a hotel just as well as in a rental property. Same for a fire. I'm not really sure why you would single out Windsor Palms.

We are renting a 2 bedroom villa that sleeps 8 at Holiday Inn Orange Lake River Island for $106 a night if that helps.
