Overview

The Sheraton Vistana Resort #0450 is so close to the Walt Disney World property that you can literally walk there, making the location this resort's best feature. I do have to mention that the resort goes above and beyond for making the kids feel welcomed during the check in process. There was a separate “check-in” center just for the kids with stickers, balloons, coloring and a handful of different activities. While in the Orlando area, the Sheraton Vistana is central to Disney World, Universal Studios, Wet `n Wild and many ...Read More

We love this place! With every visit we make to the Orlando area we make certain that we complete our visit with a meal at Logan’s Roadhouse. We first found this wonderful establishment during a weekend trip to Orlando that my wife and I took in 2002. We actually were hoping to get in somewhere else but the wait time was a lot longer than we were willing to wait. So we drove up the street and tried Logan’s. When we walked into the restaurant the floor was covered with peanut shells and found the wait to only be fifteen to twenty minutes. The hostess suggested waiting at the bar where we found the dollar draft beer special. We knew right aw...Read More

Hawaiian Rumble Adventure Golf was located right across the street from the Sheraton Vistana Resort where we were staying. So when we had a day that we were not spending inside the Disney Theme Parks, my wife and I thought it would be a lot of fun to watch the kids play a little putt-putt golf. Now I hear those of you who are familiar with the amenities of the Vistana saying, “there is a mini-golf course on property.” True, there is one on property, and you can play a round at Animal Trax for $5.00 per person, but have you seen the condi...Read More

An Important Airport Security Lesson

Best Of IgoUgo

Story/Tip

Quote:
I have to admit that I tend to learn something new with every vacation I take. Sometimes the things I learn revolve around where are the best places to go or which restaurants are better than others; I never thought I would learn an important lesson revolving around security, considering that I have 10 years' experience in a security related law enforcement position. Ever since September 11, 2001 there has been an incredible amount of increased security at our airports. Although there are mix views as to whether or not the T.S.A. (Transportation Security Administration) is doing a good job, I would have to say that I personally feel as though the added security is a great deterrent, for now....Read More
