4 stars plus kitchen plus one bedroom don't compute. Good 2-3 stars would be Staybrdige Suites and Residence Inn, good 3-4 stars 2 bed condos would be Winsdor Hills.

The only expensive one beds I can think of would be the Villas of Grand Cypress, and the Villa properties onsite at Disney like Boardwalk villas etc.

Josie, I think that is rated two stars, OP was asking for 4. 4 stars don't usually have kitchens.

Ok, so maybe I don't need "4" stars

what I was or am trying to get is a palce with enough room, a seperate bedroom, and to be relatively modern and clean.

I do not want to be in a place that looks incredibly lived in and dated

does that make more sense?

also hoping for decent things to do at the place for my 2.5 year old (ie. nice pool, part, etc... anything else)

thanks for all your responses!!!!

price range?

I still say the Villa DVC properties at disney, Villas at Grandy Cypress, and those Hyatt and Marriott properties mentionned above. One bed suites at Staybridge in LBV might do, as would cypress pointe resort or the Blue Heron.

All of the above are close enough (ie abt 10 mins) frm Disney and Seaworld by car which is where you will want to go with a 2 year old.

I've stayed in all the ones suggested by Ladyemm and can confirm that they all tick all your boxes perfectly.

You are not going to be able to get a 4 star suite too inexpensively-only the Hyatt Cypress Villas would even come close and they are around $800 a night. Most of the suite hotels are 2 to 2 1/2 stars-we like the Staybridge Suites,Marriott Grande Vista and the Residence Inn LBV. You can get a one bedroom villa at Disney but nowhere near 4 stars. Depends on your priorities

We stayed at Orange Lake Country Club in December in a one bed suite, was lovely, very clean and looked like new. Has small kitchen with microwave, hob and seperate small toaster oven, also had a dishwasher.

Great pool areas. There's a new road (not sure of number, toll road) just down the 192 which took us to Disney in 5 minutes.
