We loved our place here! We stayed in a 2 bedroom unit that had a porch right on the golf course. My husbands brother's family had the unit next door to us so the kids ran back and forth between the... Read more units and had plenty of space to run around. The units were modern and had everything we needed while there. We were out everyday, all day so we didn't have much of an opportunity to enjoy the resort amenities but from what we saw it was fantastic. Read less
Family vacation with Disney built in. Orange Lake is a huge timeshare resort property that sits adjacent to Disney properties. Our stay was with an extended family group and we stayed at the River... Read more Island property. We stayed in a spacious 2-bedroom, one master and two queen beds in the other room. There is living room space with a full kitchen. Also a screened in balcony. This is the best place to stay if you have kids. The pool area is huge with a lazy river running throughout the pool area. Adjacent to the pool is a number of places to eat. We went to Disney parks 3 days while we there and stayed at the resort by the pools the rest of the time. There is a lake on the property with boats you can rent for whatever you wanted to do, but we did not see anybody using those amenities while we were there. In addition to the pool, they have a great mini-golf course. They also set up a huge water slide and rock climbing wall for the kids. But this stuff costs extra. So if you're staying a week, buy the armbands for your kids to do these things. Because you need a wristband to get a tube to use in the lazy river. We only ate restaurant food a couple of times and we ordered that to go eat in our room. It did take a long time to get our food and there were mistakes in the order, but the food was good. This is a great spot if you have younger kids. Read less

Our stay has always been nearly perfect. Wonderful place to have a vacation. The only problem we found was the Grill restuarant in River Island The decor is old and dusty looking. Fake palm trees... Read more and teki hut is covered in dust. We were also not impressed with the menu. My Salmon was dry and the worst macaroni and cheese I have ever tasted. Sorry but true. You need to freshen up this restuarant. . I know You can do it.... Hope to give you 5 stars next trip... Read less
Excellent resort for families! Clean units, friendly staffwill return for sure. Enjoyed every minute of our week. Stayed in River Island Village-definitely the place to stay with all the amenities... Read more Excellent resort for families! Clean units, friendly staff...will return for sure. Enjoyed every minute of our week. Stayed in River Island Village-definitely the place to stay with all the amenities right outside your front door. We have teen boys and they had plenty to do, which is hard to find. Close to theme parks and many restaurants on property. Food was above average quality, prices were fair. The only complaint I have is workers start really early...blowers, etc at 7:30am is not for me on vacation. But with a property this big, it is what it is. I would also recommend a hinge of some sort on the pool gate, it slams all day and all night...bummer when your room is right next to it. Otherwise, wonderful time! Read less
