URGENT! Mystic Dunes - Anyone ever stayed at their 3BR? UPDATED questions....

We were recently invited to stay Mystic Dunes Resort and Golf Club, located in Celebration (I believe). Has anyone ever stayed here before?? Good? Bad? Suggestions on which building to request?

EDIT: see Page 4 - Post #49

2nd EDIT: see Page 5 - pics

Hi! I booked friends of mine into the facility about 2 years ago -- I'm pretty sure it was a 2 or 3 bedroom place. They absolutely loved it. The year before I put them in the Marriott Imperial Palms and they actually preferred this place over the Marriott. I know they liked the pool as well. Also, not sure if its on trip advisor but you might get some good feedback there as well. Enjoy your stay!!

We've never stayed here, but have done timeshare tours a couple times. It looks very nice but the units they show are the models. They seem to have a lot to do. It used to be called Wyndham Palms or something like that but it was never owned by the group now called Wyndham Vacation Club. We own Wyndham now and have for about 12 years and this was never one of their resorts. If the units are like the model, I don't think you can go wrong. I just don't know how well kept up they are. I'm sorry I am unable to give you better information.

Well, if it's really bad you'll just *have* to move someplace else for the rest of the week, and the AKL would be the perfect place!
