Being Military we booked our 2 day stay through Armed Forces Vacation Club and got an awesome price. This was our first time ever using AFVC. This place was GREAT! It is located between Marker 6 & 7 which means your about 1 mile from Disney and about 20 mins from Seaworld. We had a one bedroom, full kitchen, livingroom, screened in porch, full bathroom and washer/dryer. It was very clean. The king size bed was very comfortable and the sheets must of been at least a 400 count. Very soft and clean. We stayed in building 1000 on the 1st floor with a side view of the pool and woods. The pool we were near is not the main pool area, so it was very quite, more for the adults. The main pool area is huge. We didn't use either but I was told the water was nice. They also have a Theater which shows 2 movies a day (free). Game room with pool tables, pin ball machines and arcade games. Fitness room (free). Computer room with about 5 computers and 2 printers (free). Xbox tournaments, bead making classes, pool side dancing and there's a DVD rental box, tennis court and basketball. The list goes on with all they offer.
The staff is very friendly and helpful. The service desk is not pushy about owning a Time Share. When we checked in they asked us if we would like to go to a free breakfeast the next day for about 1 1/2 hrs and we could get $100. The good ole Time Share meeting. We said no and they were ok with it. They never tried to convience us to do anything.
I'm not sure about the other's bad reviews but this was a great place. Maybe if they were in a different building they would of had better luck. I was told that our building 1000 was one of the newer buildings. Very simple, no fancy decorting, very clean and simple.
The only one thing I would recommend to the staff is that they have more towel hangers in the bathroom and a clock in the kitchen or living room area. The only clock they had was a small alarm clock on the night stand next to the bed. Our room was quite. We never heard anyone.
The location is off 192, Which is a main strip that has several stores and places to eat. You don't have to go far for anything.
Can't wait to go back for a longer stay. Ask for Building 1000
