We have stayed at both places Ken and Sarah own in Vista Del Lago and will be back again!
Don't let the manufactured or what we used to call mobile homes or trailers scare you. The first time we came last year my wife looked at me as we drove through to get to the unit and said what the heck, oh no a trailer park, are you kidding me! I told her please wait until we get in and spend a night. 24 hours later she was already looking at the pictures to stay at Ken and Sarah’s second property at Vista Del Lago for the next year, which turns out was this unit we stayed in last week! Boy a year flew by!
We have stayed in over 20 different places while visiting Disney World over the years, The Disney Cabins, The Contemporary, The Polynesian and privately-owned Bonnet Springs, The Blue Heron just outside Disney Springs , many places in Lake Buena Vista(many have changed name over the years), both Disney and non-Disney affiliated and many private houses and town homes with the little pool right in the back. We rated this interior the best and/or at least not second to any other we ever stayed at, possibly tied, but those were 500.00 a night places!
As far as bang for the buck, if you want a high end 3 bedroom that makes you feel like you are on vacation, this is a great choice. Pull up to your door, unload your groceries and enter a place as nice as a high-end resort. If you want a large building you need to drag the groceries through just becasue it has 4 restaurants on site and a lazy river, be my guest and pay the 349.00 a night, we have done so ourselves(and still only 2 bedrooms). We wont be doing that again though, this is just so much simpler!
Some people in the review sections are saying 10 minutes or more to get to Disney. That might be for them and really still is a very good time, but we did it in 6 and 7 minutes many times. And I mean in the lot and parked at Animal Kingdom! Magic Kingdom is of course way on the other side and going to that park does take a good 20 to 25 minutes(I think 16 minutes was my record at 6:00 am), but realize you can stay at many a Disney resort and be 23 to 25 minutes from Magic Kingdom or one of the other parks, Disney is 42 Square miles!
So just book it!
This was a beautiful condo in a great location. Everything about the place is perfect. My only complaint is they did not explain the check out policy. There is a door lock that stops working immediately at 10am on the day of check out. We were out at 10, but throwing out trash and doing last minute clean up before we left and then the door will not lock. There was no contact number which is frustrating. There was no gate code or code for pool access. The place itself was amazing, just would have been nice to have a person to speak to to have a few minutes to clean up and lock up.
