Suggestions on where to stay?

We are spending 5 days in Orlando in July befre a Disney cruise. We were in WDW in Oct so we are planning to do other Orlando attractions. We are planning a day at Legoland, Seaworld, and Disney water parks. I am trying to decide on a place to stay that will be fun for the kids (3,6,10,13). I have looked at Nick hotel, Wyndam Reunion, Lake Buena Vista resort, Wyndam Bonnet Creek and Windsor Hills. All have pros and cons. I would like to get a 3 bdrm for under $350 / night. I got that in a quote on all but Nick. Anyone have any other suggestions or thoughts on my list so far?

Thanks!!

$350/night! we're paying $150/night for 4-bed/3-bath house in Emerald Island. Stayed at WH previously for a little less. I've seen condos at WH going for $299/week.

only thing is the rent usually for 7 days, but the differance may be worth renting for 7. I think I've read bonnet creek has variable days.

We just returned from Hilton Grand Vacations at Seaworld. It was fantastic. Huge rooms, 3 pools, a kids pool, a splashpad and a playground. 7-8 minute walk to Seaworld. 15ish minute drive to Disney. There's also a huge screened in porch to sit out in the evening without the bugs!

Orange Lake in Kissimmee is a good choice-they have a great pool/mini water park that the kids would love!

agree

it is central located - so about as far to WDW as US/IOA - it is cross the street (walking distance) to Seaworld

look here for it
www.tug2.net
www.redweek.com
www.mynetwork.com

plus the hilton website -sometimes it has a sale

I agree with Hilton Grand Vacations, Sea World.... I love this place. It is in the perfect location for the attractions you want to visit.

Orange Lake is further away, and not as nice as Hilton.
