anyone stayed at orange lake resort Kissimmee?

Doing a bit of hotel research and just looking at their 2 bed apartments which look fab and on a par with the price of the hotel rooms on international drive. Any body stayed there?

This is a really nice resort, we even nearly bought a timeshare here. It's pretty expensive though and you can find other timeshare resorts at a much cheaper price, also have a look for someone renting on eBay.

It's actually in the thomson brochure as a package holiday no mention of time share. It does look amazing

My friend owns a timeshare there and loves it. I think you have to pay extra to use the pools / lazy rivers so just be aware of that.

Thanks - also looked on Tripadvisor and many say the resort is huge so a lot of walking if you don't get the room near to where you are interested in, and no sidewalks to walk on so can be dodgy if walking about with the kids. It still looks lovely though.

We stayed there a couple of years ago, pool near our room was free (we were in the reception block) but didn't go to the waterpark. It is huge but we had a car and think there is a bus that runs around the resort. There was a shop for food etc and also a takeway. Had a great time.

That is our go-to when not staying on property. Huge rooms, friendly service,close to parks and good recreation.

There is no extra charge to use the pools. The only extra charge is to use the tubes in the lazy river, but there are enough laying around that you can just find one and use it.

It is a really nice resort with plenty of stuff to due there. You don't even need to leave the resort and will have something different to do each day.

It is a timeshare resort and you will be asked to attend a presentation. Some people have had an issue with these in the past with them going longer then they say they will. We have done three of them and other then when we originally purchased we were out in an hour and a half.
