A November 2002 trip
to Orlando by JoannaMcK
Quote: Walt Disney was all we expected and more with minimal lines and wonderful weather. November at Walt Disney was an experience we will never forget. Not only were the attractions all that was to be expected, our resort and its employees went out of their way to make us welcome.
Silver Lake Resort is great for this. Their pool with poolside snack bar is the perfect way to relax with the family. At Universal Studios, we took two days and saw everything in that portion of the park. It was perfect for the boys, too.
If you are planning to go during the summer months, I suggest getting a map and planning exactly what you want to see before going as you'll not be able to see everything in each of the parks in one day, especially with the additional wait times.
The Express Pass is available at all Disney parks and you should definitely take advantage of this option to reduce stress.

Silver Lake Resort
7751 Black Lake Road
The trading power was a major pull for us. Everyone wants to go to Walt Disney World. That makes it easier to trade weeks through RCI. The RCI points available at this resort also help tremendously when trading.
The grounds of Silver Lake are very well planned. With the small area already developed, the accommodations are within walking distance of the pool and registration area. The pool was spacious with plenty of room not only for the swimmers, but for those people who wish to just relax and enjoy the sun.
The registration process was easy and painless. We walked into the registration area, told them our names, and showed our identification. We were given our key and our introductory packet. My husband asked about attractions in the area and how to get tickets and we were directed to that area. It was simple and easy. And with a five year old and a seven year old, simple and easy is wonderful!
I would definitely recommend this resort to anyone who likes peaceful surroundings with activities available upon request. Their no pressure sales technique was easy to understand. We went to the Orlando area looking for a timeshare. We looked at three resorts, but felt that Silver Lake met our needs better than the bigger, more flashy resorts we toured. The RCI points available at this resort also helped sway both my husband and myself toward Silver Lake. If you are looking for a timeshare in this area, check out Silver Lake. You won't be disappointed.
