We love using our timeshare at all Vacation Villages, but we are getting older now and can not travel as we would like. It is very family orinated, the staff is very good and there is so much in and around the grounds that is available for you. I have been with RCI many years and have enjoyed both my home and exchanges but we just can not do it anymore.

We just returned from a week long stay at VVP. Our stay was from Sunday, May 29th. through Sunday, June 5th. We arrived at the resort about three (3) hours before the scheduled check-in and the representative was very professional, courteous and helpful. The unit that was reserved for us was in building 6 through RCI's extra vacation program. About a week prior to our arrival I called the resort and advised them that I would like to stay in building 18 on a high floor facing Disney so we could watch the fireworks at Epcot each night. The representative made the notation in the system. When we arrived, I mentioned the request and the representative advised us that since the units is building 18 are A & C units (they have washer and dryers in each lock-off unit and I think a bit larger) compared to the units in building 6 which are A & B units. She didn't think it would be possible. I advised her that we actually own a week at VV&P and she spoke to a manager and was able to check us in to building 18 room 803 A&C. This is the top floor and faces Disney. We were very happy to say the least.
Upon check-in to the rooms, we noticed that they were very large and spacious and identical except unit A had a full size stove and unit C had a hot plate. The furnishing were clean and overall comfortable. I did notice that the couch cushions would sink into the sofa bed where there wasn't any support. A slight annoyance, but we were very comfortable. All TV's were flat screen LCD's in both the living rooms and bedrooms with DVD player in the living room. They patio had seating for four with a table. This was great for watching the fireworks. The master bedroom was very large with a slider to the balcony and private access to the bathroom. There was a huge jacuzzi tub and large walk-in shower. I was surprised how large the master suite was. The king size bed was very comfortable and there were plenty of pillows. The AC worked marvelously, it worked so well that it would get cold in there with a 72 degrees setting.
The kitchen was spacious with granite counter tops (granite in the bathroom too), full size stove and oven in Unit A, ice maker, coffee machine, blender, plenty of utensils. We would have liked more glasses and plates because we felt we had to run the dishwasher too often. Unit A did not have coffee filters or dishwasher detergent but there were plenty in unit C so we just borrowed some and we didn't run out. The washer and dryer was a stand up style unit and it worked quick and efficiently. I have used these type of units elsewhere and this dryer did a great job at drying the clothes quickly. No need to take dirty clothes home to wash. This is a big plus for us.
The resort offers many activities scheduled for every day of the week. So many it would keep you busy without heading out to the parks. We however, did not have kids to entertain so we did not participate in any of the activities. I was looking for more adult theme activities but they were few and far in between. I would have liked to see a wine tasting gathering or maybe some music or breakfast without a sales pitch offered. We went to the pool a few times and it was never crowded. Maybe it is because building 18 and 19 share their own pool. We did not have a problem finding a lounge chair in the sun or shade nor did we have to worry about bumping into kids in the pool. The hot tub was large enough for a small party of a dozen or so, but we never saw more than 2 or 4 other individuals in there. This was a big plus for us. The one thing that we would like to see at the pool is food and cocktail service. It lacks the full resort feel without a frozen drink in 90 degree temperatures while lounging at the pool. In addition, it would be nice to have separate spas for the guys and gals with sauna's, steam rooms, lounge area, spa treatments, etc. This is something that we look for when we travel and this was not found at this resort.
There were plenty of barbecues next to the pool area for grilling. We did not use as we ate out most of the time. There was a $49.99 fee to access the WIFI for the week which I thought was outrageous. I paid it because I like keeping up with my email and work, but $50 bucks is a bit stiff. I own at two other resorts QH in NOLA and FLBR and they both offer FREE WIFI. Seems to me that this could be included in the maintenance fee for a couple extra dollars per year. The only other fees that I noticed and did not take advantage of were the safe in the room for $10 extra per stay and the daily maid service for $25 extra per day. The mid week towel exchange and tidy up was sufficient for our needs. Once again, I have stayed in resorts that offer daily maid service and/or turn down service. It is nice, but not necessary.
The resort was very convenient to to the area parks like Disney, Universal and Sea World. You really have to have a car to experience the area fully. There are a lot of restaurants and grocery stores and shopping near by, but nothing is close enough to walk too. The resort is so close to Disney that we could watch the fireworks from our suite every night from the units.
The resort caters to families because of the location and proximity to all of the theme parks. However, it is not unfriendly to adults and the building we stayed in was very quiet, the pool was usually empty or just a few people using it. The halls were quiet and unless you bumped into other guests in the elevator you did not see a bunch of people at any one time. With that, we enjoyed it.
Overall, it was a very comfortable stay. I would not be against staying here again, especially since I own here, but I think I would prefer a more adult resort with a bit more amenities for adults like the spa and pool side service.

I have owned a timeshare in the Vacation Village at Parkway for several years. The first time I stayed there I was so impressed that I bought an annual week. My week is always the 20th week of each year. I have never been disappointed with the service or property. The location is idea i.e. Disney parks, Universal Studios, and Sea World. We can sleep as many as 8 people in the 2 units, Unit A and B. This is an incredible place to vacation. Try it you'll love it.
Sincerely, Jim Parker

Very convenient to parks. Exceptionally clean and updated. Organized check-in in a separate building with internet access and very friendly staff. Several pools - only thing missing is a pool bar but this seems to cater more to families. Definitely would stay here again.

I stayed here two years ago, twice in one year. The first time I had the 2 bedroom lock out and it was fantastic. It was very large and spacious. The second time I had the 1 bedroom. That was on the small side but worked for us. The place is very clean and never had any problems with the staff. The location is great too!
