This is the resort I stay at most of the times I visit WDW. It has a centralized location and is fair with the use of DVC points. That being said, there are a few detractions. The first is that the central hub of the location does not have a covered patio by the snack shop / DVC activity area and the second is that there has been some small issues with my mother's scooter getting from the bus stations. - Mitchell Olson

8 - Commendable. Our two-room villa was very spacious, even for a party of 9. The kitchen was well organized, the beds were comfortable, the bathrooms were spacious, and the balcony was a nice place to enjoy cocktails in the afternoons and late evenings. I'm not a big fan of the Florida Keys theming - pastel colours and golf greens made the place feel like a wealthy retirement community - but I can't complain about the service, amenities, and boat transportation to Downtown Disney. Transportation to the parks is often very slow, but it's worth sacrificing a bit of time to save on a rental car; if you have your own car, though, you can get to the parks much quicker than the buses. On-site dining is terribly expensive, but Downtown Disney is a few minutes away, as are some grocery stores outside of the World. Make your breakfasts in the room, pack a lunch, and splurge on dinner! Overall, this is a pretty good resort, but don't pay full-price for it - look for DVC deals online. We saved thousands of dollars by renting from a DVC owner. - Joshua Counsil
