We stayed at the SVR from Nov 6 - 11. We paid $139/night for a 2 bedroom villa with housekeeping - we booked using the allearsnet promotion code. We requested a top floor villa in the Cascades section, and we got just that. Our villa was clean, modern and very spacious. We have 3 kids, so the space was very appreciated. We had no issues with anything in the villa - everything worked and looked fine. The resort pools were awesome, though the Cascades pool wasn't heated one day (not sure why.) No big deal - we just went over to the super pool. The restaurants are very convenient. The food is pretty good - not spectacular, but definitely good. It was great to leave the parks at noon and come back to the hotel for a swim and lunch and not wait in any line to order food. The bartenders are really accomodating. It took us about 10 minutes to get to the parks - no issues with parking at all. The drive was very easy. I would definitely have a car, though, when staying here. Did express checkout - easy!! All in all, I would highly recommend the Vistana. It's wonderful for families. It's an all around great place.
