A December 2003 trip
to Orlando by debbyl
Quote: As you touch down in Orlando, you can feel the excitement build with the anticipation of what your week(s) will bring. The air is alive with excitement, (and people). The palm trees wave in the wind and you can see bodies of water everywhere.
Hotel | "Orange Lake Country Club"
Our unit was immaculate and well-maintained. We had a full kitchen and washer and dryer. The master bath had a large Jacuzzi tub with separate shower.
The resort backs up to Disney property and is a quick 10 - 15 minute drive on the road. They have two entrances, both of which have security guards. The grounds are beautifully landscaped.
You can very easily and happily spend an entire week without ever leaving OLCC. If you are not in the mood to cook, they offer a convience store and numerous casual and nice restaurants on site.

The characters were Pluto and Goofy. They made the whole visit worthwhile. They went around to each table and spent quite a while with everyone. They signed autographs and posed for pictures. They even stopped at the adult only tables. I would recommend the character breakfast, but order off the menu. The buffet is not worth it. There is very little variety.
