We trade through II and are planning a trip to Orlando with our girls, 13 & 14 yrs old. We always get a 2 bedroom and the key desires in a resort would be a fun activity club, a pool with some depth to it (some seem to only be 4-5 feet at the deepest) and ideally mini-golf. 2 beds (vs 1 king) are preferred in the 2nd bedroom. We've stayed at the Imperial Palms before and the kids loved the pool at the World Center but we found the process of shuttling over to the World Center and venturing through the lobby to be a pain. Also the pool there was always super crowded and we never found chairs to sit in. Are there any similar pools at resorts that trade through II? We tend to like Marriott and Sheraton but are open to anything really. Doesn't even have to be Orlando - it can be anywhere in Florida! THANKS.

Wyndham Bonnet Creek would be at the top of my list. They have multiple pool areas, two lazy rivers, small mini golf courses and you will be a short ride from Disney Springs and Disney’s mini golf courses. The second bedroom has two beds.

I am not sure if it is available through your trade, but we love Sheraton Vistana. I think it’s not too far from the World Center Marriott. It has multiple pools, mini golf, and really nice rooms. We’ve always had two beds in the second bedroom. It is a very easy drive onto WDW property. My daughter is almost 11, and she loves it there. There always seems to be a lot of activities going on. There is also the Sheraton Vistana Villages that is up near Universal, but I’ve never stayed there.

I don't believe they trade with Interval butI've heard that one is great!

+1 for Sheraton Vistana Resort. Has all of the items on your wish list. variety of pools to enjoy. The Spas Super Pool has no shallow end at all, and there are 7 pools in total, each a bit different so you can find one that suits your mood - our kids usually hang at one with music and a younger crowd while we hang out at a quieter pool with the old folks nearby.

We love Marriott Cypress Harbor- two huge pools, great activity club, mini golf, etc. We are actually heading to Florida in a few days (impulse trip) to stay at Marriott Harbour Lake for a couple weeks - to use up extra Timeshare weeks lol! Haven’t stayed here in a couple years, last time they were in middle of remodel.
MCH has 2 beds in 2nd bedroom though one is a sofa bed- kids slept there and said it was pretty comfortable. Last time at Harbour Lake there were two double beds in 2nd bedroom.

Staying at Harbour Lake this time due to more amenities open at the resort. Cypress Harbour is my preferred resort though
