Thank you so much for your 5-star review! It’s our goal to provide great service at a great value at Vacation Village at Parkway and we’re happy to know that we have succeeded in making your visit a memorable one. The resort is a timeshare property and doesn’t include the same type of housekeeping services that you would find in a hotel. This is standard in the timeshare industry. However, our resort offers guests staying five or more days a midweek service consisting of trash removal, towel exchange and light tidy. Extra housekeeping services are available upon request for an additional fee. Thank you for your sharing your experience and we hope to welcome you again for another relaxing vacation in Orlando.

I will only give a "mini" review since we really didn't do much here except drive in, park and go to our room. Everything was extremely clean. Lots of parking, although very packed late in the evening. Our room was immaculate. Not a bug, except for a few spiders nesting on the balcony. Bought bug spray and sprayed it. We had the one bedroom condo, and the kitchen was quiet small. No stove, just 2 hot plates, which if you like to cook, could be a big unnerving. Big, huge table by the kitchen and the door as you enter which took up alot of space. One sleeper sofa, and one arm chair. The 2 bedroom unit, next door, which we didn't have, had a full kitchen and much more seating in the living area.

It seems that most units have one entry door of the hallway that once inside branches off into two units behind that main door. On the one side is the 1 bedroom and on the other side is the 2 bedroom. Each have their own entrances and doors to lock. Pretty, quiet except for one night kids stomping around upstairs moving furniture of something?? But, that can happen anywhere! Very nice location, close to Disney parks. Seemed to be a pretty far drive from airport. Would recommend.

Room Tip: If you want a full kitchen, get the 2 bedroom. Plus, it has much much more living area.

The pool was clean. The staff driving the hotel shuttle was well informed and very helpful especially getting us to a local grocery and near by restaurants. The room was clean. Only saw a couple of bugs. The grounds are well maintained. There are many walking trails.

The company hired to shuttle people to/from the Disney parks is questionable. They have very limited time options and frequently did not have enough space on the vehicles for everyone to ride. The drivers were not polite or helpful. We frequently needed to take a taxi instead.

Thank you for your recommendation of Vacation Village at Parkway. We’re pleased that you enjoyed your vacation with us but are sorry that you were disappointed with our shuttle service. There are five scheduled shuttle departures to the theme parks starting at 7:10 am through 12:15 pm. Guests can return to the resort on one of the five scheduled shuttles beginning at 6:00 pm to 10:00 pm. An additional return is added at 11:30 pm on the days that Disney’s Magic Kingdom is open till 11:00 pm. We apologize for the issues you had with the drivers. Normally we receive many compliments on our friendly employees and we regret that we couldn’t provide you with the same level of service that so many other guests have enjoyed from this amenity. We hope that our wonderful location and spacious accommodations will entice you to return and stay again at Parkway so that we may have another opportunity to exceed all of your expectations.

We used timeshare points to stay here given its proximity to the parks (can't beat it, just a 5 minute drive and only one stoplight and no tolls). We arrived very late and were put in building 18 facing the interstate, not great for sitting on the balcony or sleeping so we asked if we could be moved the next day and Ken and his team at the front desk were awesome. We had keys waiting for us when we returned that next day and were put into an identical room in building 17. We had a 2 bedroom which is really 2 x 1 bedroom suites with a common main entry. Our girls were in heaven having their own room, living room, bath and kitchen. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. Its not the Hyatt but then again I couldn't get a nice 2 bedroom suite at the Hyatt. Each room had a jacuzzi tub which we didn't use but would have been nice.
We used the pool in building 17 a couple of times and it was great! Its heated so it doesn't have the shock value of some other outdoor pools. it was relatively easy to get chairs and towels and everyone was enjoying themselves. It's a casual place, not too uppity and everyone I spoke to there enjoyed their experience.
Easy to find groceries and a Starbucks from the village, there's the typical tourist dining places around it. We enjoyed going a few miles out to hit Bahama Breeze. If you are a runner like me, it is very easy to run alone the main road in front of the village, it goes for miles on wide sidewalks with not too many lights to deal with.
Enjoy your time, be nice to the staff and have fun...you're on vacation!

Room Tip: Buildings 16/17 have a great pool. Buildings 18/19 are quieter but one side faces the interstate, n...

First let me say the service was great when we arrived Tony was very nice and showed absolutely great customer service. The issue we had was our room we were placed in the so called "marketing" room lets just say if this was any type of representation of the marketing they do I wouldn't allow my worst enemy to stay here. I called weeks prior to ensure that we were placed in one of the newer buildings and was ensured that they would attempt to grant our request but when we arrived to the roon and I called to complain I was told that based on the company which did my booking this is the room they are contracted to place us in.....UNACCEPTABLE this should have been established and explained when I called to make the request. Secondly the room was completely outdated the mattress on the sleeper sofa was completely flat and looked disgusting as you can see in my pictures. These people do not know the first thing about first impressions make lasting impressions!! I will however like to give kudos to the housekeepers that came to our room to clean when we arrived Hector and his crew made us feel better about our stay.

Thank you for taking the time to share your valuable feedback. We apologize that our resort did not meet all of your expectations. As noted on our website, special requests are accepted but accommodations are based on a first come, first serve basis with no guarantees. We do strive to to honor all requests if available. Each year we make a significant investment in refurbishment and renovation projects at the resort. This year we’re continuing our efforts by updating furnishings in several of our buildings. It is difficult to find a sofa bed mattress that everyone likes and we’re sorry you were disappointed in our choice. We ask if guests are unhappy with the mattress that they notify the front desk and they’ll be happy to have someone change the mattress. We’re thankful that you found our housekeeping staff and other team members like Tony helpful and friendly. We hope that you will consider returning so that we may have another opportunity to prove that we are the best choice for an Orlando vacation.

My family and I just stayed at Vacation Village during our most recent stay in Kissimmee. I really think these rooms are great. I wouldn't say they are luxurious compared to other places we have stayed, Marriott and Hilton, but they are definitely a great choice.

I can't begin to tell you how spotless our room was. I search every square inch of the room looking for the smallest hairs left behind. I go over counters with Lysol wipes to check for any dirt left behind. Needless to say, I am extremely picky about the room in which I stay. This room was impressively clean. I stayed in building 17. It is one of the newer buildings.

We had a perfect view of the nightly fireworks in Epcot, which was a nice treat when we were in the room.

The pool area could be a little nicer and better equipped for the kids compared to other hotels, but we were busy with other things during this vacation so it did not bother us too much.

Also, wifi service needs to be improved tremendously. We were constantly getting kicked off and having to sign back in. In about a days time we had the 10 digit number for sign in memorized because we entered it so much.

The resort is conveniently located near Downtown Disney and the Disney parks.

It is definitely a place I could see myself returning to in the future.

Room Tip: Stay in one of the higher numbered buildings. They are newer. If you do not like pool noise, ask for...

We just spent one full week at the property. Check in was relatively easy. I quickly told them I wasn't interested in a time share presentation and was on my way.

I requested a newer building and was given Building 16. It was very nice. The 2 bedroom condo was great. There were two separate kitchens and bathrooms. I loved it.

Pools were well kept. The shuttle driver was very nice but the one day I needed the service there was a very long wait. That was unfortunate. I never used it again.

My only major complaint is that we never got midweek cleaning service. I called front desk and they dropped off towels in garbage bag but never came in for anything else.
