I visited WorldQuest Resort for 8 nights in late February with my wife, two kids (5 and 2) and my in laws. In a previous trip to Orlando my wife and I had stayed at Floridays with our son, and wanted to go back there, but our search for a 3 bedroom unit led us here. I was a little wary at first, but it was ~$50/night less than Floridays so I though we would try it. I paid ~$1500 all in.
Location: Excellent location if you are visiting Disney - less than 15 mins to all the parks. Lots of food/shopping options and Downtown Disney was close as well (less than a $20 cab ride for parents looking for a night out). The resort is hard to find and not well signed - look for the Nickelodeon hotel and it's behind there.
Check In: No problem. Even though the reservation was in my name, my in-laws were able to check in before I arrived around 4pm. Apparently the first unit they were given in building 5 wasn't ready, so they were moved to building 3 close to the pool.
Rooms: BIG. We had a 3 BR / 2 Bath unit. It had everything you would expect in a hotel, a tv in each of the bedrooms (although only 1 DVD player), and a well stocked kitchen. All the rooms have a screened in balcony facing a pond, and we could see turtles swimming in there when it was sunny out.
Service: We opted for no housekeeping services because of the extra charges - similar to Floridays. They even charge to change the towels. With two kids the unit got kinda grubby, but my mother in law tidied up from time to time. We used the dryer for our towels, which was just ok.
We did have problems with out AC unit the first few days. When we arrived it wasn't working, so we called the front desk and someone from maintainance came along and fixed it. It stopped working again on day 2 and day 3 while we were out. It was quickly addressed each time and it worked fine for the next 5 days.
The pool area is great - big - lots of chairs - towels provided. There is a Tiki bar on the pool deck for drinks, and they play music during the day. This is not a zero entry pool, so we had to have floaties on the kids.
Free Breakfast - we only visited the main building for breakfast items twice during our stay, as we stocked up at the Walmart near by. We just picked up coffees, cereal, and pastries. It was busy in there, but they had no issue with us taking stuff back to our rooms. On nicer mornings you could eat outside near the pool.
They have a market pantry with items for sale in the main building as well - some food items, wine/beer, toiletries, etc. They also sell park tickets.
Wifi was free and worked great on all our devices - no password required.
All in all a good stay - I would recommend to families looking for 2 or 3 bedrooms.
