    I always wondered how VVP was. After reading your review we probably will go there in the future. Any other advice???

    I have an RCI timeshare and have used it several times to stay at Saratoga Springs. Disney does charge a hefty $190 resort fee for a week, however.

    There are many timeshares near Disney, but not wanting to drive means you will have to accept some tradeoffs.

    These days you can use Uber and Lyft to get around for a lot less than a taxi, which makes it easier to go car-less. But you have to pay for those services.

    The closest RCI timeshare to the parks that is not Disney is Wyndham Bonnet Creek. It has restaurants and bars and limited shuttle service (that you pay for.) I would recommend using uber and lyft and the Minnie Van service from there.

    When we got there we requested a nature or pool view room. Of course, it may not be granted but we were happy that our request was followed. We loved our view/location.

    We stayed in sherton vistana there are two properties. I think it was 199 for 4 days we really liked it. I would still go with uber or Lyft most hotels use the same shuttle service. There can be a lot of stopping

    Hi, we are staying at Silver Lake next month. Was there something specific you didn’t like about it? Any recommendations for which building to request, or maybe avoid?
    Thanks!

    It's been awhile. The 2 issues I remember is our room wasn't ready at check in-it was more than 2 hours late being ready. The pool hours were short during the visit also-never got to swim as we were at the parks.

    Thanks for the update, We are checking in a little later so hopefully that won’t be an issue. I was a little worried about cleanliness from some other reviews, glad to see that didn’t seem to be an issue for you. I see you’re from KY, me too! Thanks again

    We stayed at Silver Lake last year. We loved it. We were in room 701 which was right across the street from the pool. There in May, had no problems with pool hours. Had a rental car so not sure if there are shuttles. Very convenient location. Turn left and go about a mile and you are on Disney property by Animal Kingdom. Turn right go about 1/2 mile and you are on the main drag of non Disney restaurants, grocery stores, etc. Have a great trip.
