We stayed there a few years back. Its much different to many of the other resorts in Orlando in thats its more up market and vast. More like collection of resorts. Its around 6 miles from Disney, not too far. There are a large array of property types from small 2 bed condos up to super mansions. Each community has a pool area and of course the centre point is the water park but you need to check with the owner or manager what access you can get to this as there are a rules around number of days owners can allocate to guests a year. Some good info on the various communities on here http://www.reunionprivaterentals.com/reunion-resort/communities/
We stayed at Reunion several times. If you rent from the resort direct, you will get unlimited access to the fabulous waterpark. We rented from an owner once, and although we saved more $$ we only got 1 days water park access. The houses will have pools, and the condo's have community pools, but if you want to daily water park, book from the resort direct.
We stayed there in 2014 and we are looking at staying there again next year. What a great resort and we had the water park admission for our full stay but only used it once, however we used the smaller pool close to our room. Maximum drive of maybe 20 mins to get to the Disney parks and would agree with using Old Lake Wilson road as it was always the quickest and quietest way to go.
