If you couldn't book BC, where would you stay?

Bonnet Creek is booked for the time we need. We love it there, but it's not going to work out this time. Where would you stay if you couldn't book BC? We need 2-3 bedrooms.

I would rent a vacation home through Villa Direct. They have 4 bedroom homes with a private pool and a game room for around $100 a night just a few miles from Disney in nice neighborhoods. It is like that Rent by Owner website only a different company.

We loved our stay several years ago at the Sheraton Vistana. My kids still talk about the pool and all the games they had there.

I have relatives who are dedicated Vistana people. They love it there and from what I've seen, the pool, grounds and rooms are lovely. It's just around the corner when you exit from the DTD hotel road, so it's reasonably close.

Villa Direct are the slum lords of the management companies in Orlando. I would never, ever book through them.

Sorry, did not mean for that to sound so harsh. It just seems that in the 8 years since I have been going to DW, every bad management/dirty house/algae in pool story I have heard has been about Villa Direct. Yet there are hundreds of management companies in Orlando/Kissimmee.
