I stayed at the Riverside resort. We had a fantastic trip. The hotel room was average size, more on the smaller end. They had fun pools for the kids to play at. They have a cafeteria style dining hall. Everything was very convenient being in the disney bubble as I call it. There was a bus stop where busses were constantly coming to pick passengers up and take you to which ever park you wish to go. There is a lot of walking involved at this resort. Your room is in one location, the main house with food is in another, the pool is in another and the bus stop is in another location. So you have to walk a fair amount of distance everywhere you want to go.
It's a nice resort, landscaping is beautiful. It doesnt have a Disney feel, so if you like that than its for you. (But we like to feel like we are at a Disney resort with the decor & service) It has multiply bus stops and pools since its a very large resort. Some of the rooms are a bit of a walk from the main lobby & food court. The table service restaurant was ok and their wait staff was so-so. It wasn't cool of the waitress to re-explain to us how to leave her a tip if we paid with our magic band, this was after we clearly said we knew about it already. The chef was friendly when he spoke to me about my food allergies.
Wizarding World of Harry Potter has become the most famous theme park of Orlando. It is the favorite location of all the Harry Potter fans. If you will visit this place you will have a feeling that you have become a part of this magical world and why not you will have this feeling. It is built as a replica of the original set. I have visited this place many time and each time it feels like a whole new experience. It is a wonderful place for the tourists as well as locals.
Beautiful gingerbread-styling resort hotel on the large Disney World properties. So much to do at Old Key West including three swimming pools. Cast members are continuously courteous, wonderfully tasty, well-presented food at Olivia's Restaurant and poolside eatery. Water ferries to Disney sites. Disney buses provide transportation to each Park within DISNEY WORLD. By the way, each villa is luxurious with jacuzzis , beautiful full kitchens, We loved our experience!!!
My husband and I Just returned from a 4 day stay and Cabana Bay Beach Resort and loved it! All of the staff were friendly and helpful, the place was immaculate everywhere we went, loved out adorable comfortable room with a fabulous view of Universal, they gym was so cool with great equipment, the food in the Bayliner was homemade and delicious. I wish we had had better weather to enjoy the pools and hot tub more. Hope they all keep up the great work.
This was the very first Harry Potter World in the world (opened in 2010) and while the crowds have died down a little, it's still very popular. The second phase, Diagonal Alley, opened in 2013. Unfortunately, the 2 HP attractions are located in 2 different parks - Islands of Adventure and Universal Studios Florida- so of course you have to buy an expensive park hopper ticket to visit them both. Just bite the bullet and do it. It will be worth it.
On our last visit to Disney we stayed in one of the studio villas. There was lots of space and my daughter enjoyed the pool quite a bit. The quick service counter was seriously lacking in customer service but a quick chat with a manager took care of that. All in all it was great being able to get away from all the noise and bustle of the park to relax in sunny luxury. Hope to stay here again in the future.
I always feel so great to ride some of the best attractions @ both Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure Theme Parks located inside the Universal Orlando Resort and have free shuttle scheduled transportation to all theme parks including Universal Orlando Resort,Aquatica,Sea World Resort, Wet &Wild and many other Orlando attractions.
While dad took the kids to the water rides at Universal Studios, mom had a private lunch.Service was very good but the food was average. However, I wonder whether the food was better than anything I would have gotten at a kiosk. Nevertheless, mom enjoyed private time, with a glass of wine!
