“Great Resort near Disney for Large Families”
Reviewed 3 March 2014

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.

The good things about this resort: Great pool area. The two bedroom condo was great for having meals in, the hotel included a very good continental breakfast, and the service was incredibly quick when we would ask for something. Things would be delivered within 5 minutes -- very impressive! It was very clean. The two bedrooms each had their own bath which was great. Front desk staff were very personable and professional. Our two bedroom condo had a washer and dryer which was great. There is no restaurant on the location, but you can order a few light items from the bar at the pool. The hotel has some pool toys available for hotel guests and towels by the pool which is great.

What I did not like is that if you stay there, you definitely want your car or a rental because there are no stores or restaurants within walking distance. The mattresses were incredibly hard and cheap. I have slept on better beds at 3 star hotels. I am used to my pillow-top mattress. Kids probably don't mind, but I found them to be most uncomfortable. The pillows were equally terrible. Because of the beds, I am not sure I would return.

Dear Susan L,

Thank you for your comments. I am glad to see your positive thoughts on the resort, the pool area, the reception staff and the other areas you mentioned.
I agree with you that guests will need a car, or at least plan to have transportation arrangements. We are only a few minutes from Disney, but in a secluded natural area.
Thank you also for your feedback on the bed and pillows. We want all guests to have a good night of rest and will take your comments to heart and address them with our team.

Sincerely,

Tim P. Gross

We stayed at Worldquest Orlando for three night during February Vacation week and were really pleasantly surprised. I asked my husband how we could have that master bathroom in our own house - it was beautiful! Everything was nice and clean, staff was very helpful. Free continental breakfast is nothing special, but helpful if you want to grabs some bagels and creamcheese or cereal and head back to the room. Pool is beautiful and Donnie at the tiki bar was fabulous to talk to! For a larger family it is really the only way to go. It would have cost us triple the price in peak season just to happy adjoining rooms with no sitting area or amenities at a Disney value resort. Easy drive to all theme parks. Also, the washer and dryer in room would really allow you to just bring carry ons for everyone and pack a smaller amount of clothes. We made the mistake of checking ONE suitcase and it was delayed during a rushed connection that we didn't get until the next day. All in all, this was a great bang for the buck! Loved it!

Stayed in a two bedroom suite. Place was enormous, apartment-size, with two full bathrooms and full kitchen. Furniture was sparse, which augmented the hugeness of the place. Given that we were off visiting Disney and Universal during the day that did not matter. If you plan to spend more time in the room you may wish you had more seating space.

Note that there are no blankets for the beds. You get a bed sheet and the main bed cover (which I prefer not to use as a blanket for hygiene reason). Reception confirmed that blankets were not available. We it gets chilly outside you need to turn the heat on.

Resort is off on a property away from the main highway. Nice and quiet, but you want a car to access stores and restaurants (5-10 mins drives). No restaurant on site (continental breakfast is available in main lobby, convenient for people catching a shuttle to Disney or Universal. Pool Tiki bar was not open when we visited.

Lobby convenience store has a few necessities (milk, orange juice, cookies, frozen pizza, detergent) but best is to plan a stop at a grocery store (which will be a 5-10 mins drive).

Pool area was nice, with towels available at the pool.

Overall, this worked very well for us given that we had a car and just wanted a base to rest at between park outings. Prices are very reasonable considering size of place.

We were traveling for a family reunion for Mom's birthday. This room allowed us to stay in 3 bedrooms and 2 baths all under one roof. It was convenient to book through Expedia. Check in was easy and front desk quite friendly/helpful. Note there is an additional fee for cleaning/towels, etc but only $40 per visit.

Location is a little hard to find, but security at gate made me feel better about parking areas. Security staff was very helpful and friendly. Gave us directions to grocery store and other locations.


The room was well appointed with older but very nice furniture. Linens were clean, no odor, but tile floors were a little dirty. One master bedroom with HUGE master bath and King bed, one queen bed in smaller bedroom and one small bedroom with twins. This worked well for us.

The kitchen is nice but lean on cooking items. Place setting for eight, pots and pans but just a few utensils. No spatula or scrubbing sponge to clean pots (front desk agreed to bring to us but they never showed). Despite this we cooked breakfast, coffee, eggs and bacon everyday with no hassle. Large fridge, microwave, toaster and dishwasher.

Really nice outdoor table and chairs on screened patio overlooking pond. (we were in Building six, ground floor). Plenty of hang up storage and three TV's.

Large Living room, and dining room, as well as counter top with stools in kitchen.

Couldn't be more convenient to Epcot and Disney. Only 15-20 minutes to Universal and SeaWorld. Close to Route 4 but never heard traffic.

We didn't use the pool area, but it was large and really nice looking.

We would definitely stay again. This was less expensive than getting three hotel rooms for our group.

Thank you krose28421 for your comments. I am pleased to see that you enjoyed our room accommodations and the pool area, and also thank you for complimenting our staff.
Regarding our tiki bar, please note that we like to keep it open year-round, and only close it for two exceptions: due to inclement weather and if the air temperature drops below 60 degrees. The pool is also open year-round and kept at a minimum of 80 degrees.

Thank you again!

We stayed here in February with our three small children. We had a two bedroom that was very clean, spacious, and well decorated. We stayed in building one near the pool with a beautiful view. The staff was very friendly and helpful. This was our first time going to Disney so this worked out to be a great location. The pool was very clean and a great atmosphere. We hope to stay here again in the future and will tell all of our friends!
