Wonderful vacation with the family
10 days of fun with the family, playing fantastic two golf rounds in excellent courses (The Legends and The Reserve). Everything that need for a vacation Orange Lake have it, pools, lake, golf courses, mini golf, good restaurants, gym, and activities for the kids and teens. Location is very good, close to Orlando parks, just 15/20 min by car, good restaurants in the neighborhood. Will come back soon.

Huge resort with nice amenities
Our stay was a part of a marketing package that we had pre purchased. We stayed in February so I don't think the resort was anywhere near full yet it seemed we were put in the back corner of the resort - it took 15 minutes just to drive out of the resort everyday - not sure why they don't put you in the best possible unit when they are trying to sell it to you. Our 2 bedroom unit was clean and spacious. Appliances and TVs were functional but somewhat dated. Quite a bit of sound carrying through the walls from your neighbours bringing the building construction into question. Our in room safe was not working when we arrived but was promptly fixed. There is a very large staff on site. Nice pools and amenities - we didn't see half of all that was all on site because the majority of our time was spent at Disney etc. Resort is close to restaurants shopping and of course Disney.

Orange Lake Resort
This is our 6th year at Orange Lake and it's still our favorite place to take the kidlets each year. Close to Disney, the Airport and many other attractions - though there's lots to do on the Resort itself for both adults and kids. Highlights: Clean resort, lots to do, great selection of pools and activities, friendly staff. The kids have a blast playing the Sunset games each night and the Arcade is always fun. Even the prices as the poolside restaurants are very reasonable - happy hour makes for $2 draft and some 1/2 price appetizers. Of course the mini putt courses are always fun as well, they get a lot of use with us! Lowlights: Each year they seem to get stingier and stingier on the condo inclusions (less paper supplies, less soap etc.) and our unit had a little bit of a musty smell in the bathroom when we arrived but it seemed to go away after a few days. Overall - great value for a fully condo style unit with comfortable bedrooms and living room. We will be back next year!

Such a Value
This resort was awesome. We stayed in a villa in the West village and from the outside they look a little dated but on the inside they are practically brand new. Great pools, food, and golf. We will be back next year for sure. Great value for the price we payed. Couldn't have been happier.

The only place we stay!
We come to Dinsney at least once a month and this is the only place that we stay now. We have been coming here for about 5 years and we can always count on clean rooms that look like they have just been remodeled. I always recommend Orange Lake Resort to my friends!

We had a great time!
We stayed at the Orange Lake Resort from January 28 to February 4, 2014. We had an enjoyable time. Check in could have been a bit faster - as there was only one person checking guests in - and there were several employees walking around behind the check in desk. It never makes a guest feel good, when it seems we are being ignored standing in line and the employees are going in and out of doors behind the check in desk seemingly ignoring us. That would be my only complaint. The resort was clean, the employees were friendly, and the room was great. All in all a great experience.

Great Place to Stay
I read the reviews before I booked, most were good, some not. I wasn't sure what to expect but it looked like a good choice. When I arrived the check in was quick and efficient. That matters to me because I hate wasting time waiting for service when I'm on vacation. It's my time!! So I started out happy right away. When we got to our two bedroom unit the place was beautiful, better than I expected. It was very nice, and it was huge. I like privacy, this place felt very private. Yes no daily room service to clean the place and that made me happy. I hate having to deal with maids coming when I don't need them there. They give you a washer and dryer in the unit, why would I need towel service? Really? Another win. The next day we went to the water park portion with the lazy river. We rented tubes for $9 each. Seems somewhat of a nuisance to have to rent them and others complained in other reviews I had read previous to our arrival. So it was no surprise to me. When you think about it if you stayed at Disney you still have to pay to go to their water park, here the water park is free and so it seems fair that they would rent them. Well anyway I went around the lazy river one time in the tube then swam the river without the tube. The tube is not needed and my preference would be no tube. The river flows too slow to be on a tube and swimming it was more fun to me. So I only rented the tube the first day, totally not needed. Overall this was a great place to stay. Everything was better than I expected. They do a great job keeping the place up and letting you do what you want. So much to do!! My advice stay here do a lot here and go to the theme parks ie Disney and Universal, less days. You'll come out ahead and its a lot fun here.

Great vacation place to relax in total comfort
We were not expecting a resort experience when we reserved a room for 4 nights, Wow, we were very impressed with our room, which was actually a small apartment Our room was very clean and had everything you need, including a washer and dryer. The fully screened patio/balcony was our "end of day" relaxing room. The king bed was very comfortable. There were ceiling fans in every room, including our balcony. The River Island pools and spas were very clean and easy to get to. We loved this place and would recommend. Our only complaint was the Legacy Sports Bar. It is a little pricey and service is slow. We went to their Super Bowl Party and were disappointed with the buffet for the price you paid. We ate off site mostly after that. The location is convenient to stores, restaurants and Disney. Overall we would highly recommend this resort.
