Best Things Nearby:
Easy Access to Walt Disney World Parks. Take a right out of the entrance to Sabal Palms/Marriott World Center and in less than 5 minutes you are in the Disney World area without having passed through a single traffic light.

Best Things About the Resort:
Sabal Palms is within walking distance to the main pool & activity area of the World Center Hotel. The rooms are spacious and well equipped with everything you need.

Resort Experience:
The Sabal Palms is our all time favorite place to stay with our four kids for a Walt Disney World Vacation. The proximity to Disney is ideal. I can't tell you how many nights we would leave one of the Parks heading back Sabal Palms and one of our tired kids would say "how long until we are back to our room?" and I would reply, "just look out the window." You could see the tower of the Marriott hotel within minutes of leaving any of the Disney Park areas. That is such a relief at the end of a long Disney day.

The rooms at the Sabal easily accomodate comfortably a family of six. The washer dryer, fully stocked kitchen and breakfast bar area are essential to us enjoying our vacation together with enough space for everyone to relax and enough practical appliances available to clean clothes or prepare healthy meals. In addition, The main pool at the Marriott was just a 5 minute walk from our room at the Sabal. You could take a free shuttle offered by the resort but we choose to walk without having to wait for the shuttle. The main pool is beautiful. The largest in central Florida. A waterslide for the kids. Well placed waterfalls that make relaxing poolside possible as the sound of the waterfall effectively drowns out the noise of a busy pool full of kids. The kids activity area is clean and well stocked with toddler items and arts n crafts. There is an activity every hour throughout the day for kids to participate in from Bingo, to Treasure hunts, Tye-dye tshirt making, puzzle hunts, pool games..on and on and on. There are pool toys, floats and sand toys free of charge for resort guests to sign out. There are plenty of lounge chairs and even hairwraps by the pool. There is also great poolside bar and food service that is very reasonable.

The proximity of Sabal Palms to this Oasis pool area just outside of Disney is what keeps us coming back again and again.
