    I was debating whether to post a review or keep this place a secret. I decided to share my experience so others can decide for themselves.

    Reasons to go to Reunion (Wyndham/Worldmark)
    1. If you love golf, those three courses are impressive. Onsite guests is not outrageous after 2 or 3PM
    2. Room sizes are great. 3BR/3BA in each. Can fit 10 people in a room.
    3. Waterpark is a lot of fun and not overly crowded. There are also another 10 pools around that can be used.
    4. Tons of dining options from pool bar to the top restaurants on site. This is a very well-to-do community and the resorts are a part of it. There are a ton of well off homeowners that pay huge club fees and HOA fees.
    Reasons not to go to Reunion
    1. Distance is not as close as others, but it is not horrible. 15-20 minutes from room exit to park entrance if you are a rope drop person. Its about 20-25 minutes to the monorail station at MK. Still it is much faster than Disney transportation by about 20-30 minutes each way. Our trips from door-to-TTS were about 20-25 minutes. From monorail to MK entrance averaged about 30 minutes on top of that. Yes, monorail from TTC to MK entrance was about 30 minutes on average.
    2. If you need planned activities for everyone in the family, they have very few there, especially for kids.
    3. There are no grills on property like at WBC or others. We were on the 1st floor and I am sure I could have gone off into the grass with a charcoal grill with no one complaining. I think it is probably frowned upon.

    Thanks for your review! I have an RCI trade here for our August trip. I have a few questions-
    1. Were you in the main tower or in the outer units?
    2. Is it walkable to the surrounding pools?
    3. Was there a fee to use the water park and if so, how much?
    4. Did you have a chance to use the dryer- seems like this was a common complaint (not drying) in the reviews.
    5. Would you go back?

    Thank you!!

    We are renting a house that is in Reunion Resort for our trip in October. It looks really nice!

    I considering renting one for a last minute trip in about 2 weeks. Looks beautiful but there's not much talk here on the area.

    I know...I hope I don't regret it. We rented though Magical Vacation Homes, who is a sponsor here on the Dis, so I took that into consideration. We only paid around $1200 total for a week, and that includes taxes, fees, and, trip insurance, and it's a 4-bedroom house with a pool. The pictures are gorgeous, so I'm thinking we're going to love it!

    Please come back and let me know how it was. I think I'm going to go with the Contemporary Resort. It's been a long time and I'm interested in being close to the parks for a change. But Reunion looks beautiful.
