Elevate your next Orlando-area getaway with a stay at Kissimmee’s Liki Tiki Village. This sprawling collection of well-appointed condos is close to all the Disney and Universal action, with passes to both available through the on-site Florida Ticket Station. You can easily spend your days downtown, exploring the shopping and dining scenes – outlets are also nearby – and experience all the theme-park fun, riding thrill rides, schmoozing with your favorite characters and stepping into the worlds of your favorite movies.
Nights you’ll spend in a one- or two-bedroom accommodation, one of more than 600 on the property. It features a kitchen, living room and dining area, in case you’d like to stay in and eat in. If you feel like stepping out, but not beyond this Diamond Resorts & Hotel property’s limits, order sliders or sangria at Shipwreck Sally’s; hit the tennis and basketball courts or fitness room; try your luck in the arcade-style game room; and play the nine holes of the mini-golf course. And be sure to swing by the pool, as well. With 220,000 gallons of water and a wave pool, waterfall, water volcano and dancing fountain, it’s fit for a Disney prince or princess.

For a casual bite by the Liki Tiki Lagoon, Shipwreck Sally’s is your spot. The eatery serves wings, wraps, burgers, sliders and sandwiches, plus more unique treats, like funnel-cake fries; specials are available every day of the week, on items like hot dogs or fried fish. Wash your meal down with punch, sangria or a daiquiri – if you’re feeling particularly indulgent, perhaps even an Oreo smoothie.
Disney? Universal? SeaWorld? LEGOLAND? Whichever brought you here, it’s only a short drive, and you can snag passes through Liki Tiki’s Florida Ticket Station. If you came to Orlando to work on your swing, on the other hand, take advantage of the proximity to local golf courses. There’s also lots to do at the resort, whether you play the nine holes of the mini-golf course, hit the basketball or tennis courts, visit the arcade-style game room, or swim in the lagoon – a 220,000-gallon, one-and-a-half-acre pool, with features like a dancing fountain and water volcano.
How to Get There
This place is an apartment/condo on vacation. You have stove, oven, toaster, refrigerator, microwave, tv, etc...like being in a home away from home instead of being in a hotel. So you can cook your own food and get a good deal.
Measuring this in comparison to my home resort there were a few things that bothered us the whole time. The room was nice and large - the set up was great. It was very clean. They provided anything that was needed up front. I was not fond of the pool layout - there was not really a central congregating area for both adults and children where you could have drinks and relax while kids played. Also the pool is manned to prevent people going to the pool area without a bracelet which seems very unfriendly - every day we spent all our time worrying about $30 bracelets which should cost about $1 to replace especially since you are already paying a fee. The bar/restaurant is situated way in the back and the staff there seemed very put out all the time, there are not a lot of food options. Also my father is in a wheel chair and they placed him on the top floor - this should definitely be something stated up front if its an issue - there is an elevator but accessibility was more difficult because of this. The adult pool did not have an open tiki bar and its far away from the children's pool. We had problems with the treatment products they used in this area (hot tub/pool). The biggest complaint we had honestly was that the pool was always closed when we got back from the Disney parks - the kids wait to go back in after and we never could. It would be roped off. The great features of our home resort were not present here - lighted area for the pool so kids could stay in until bed time, drinks next to the pool, mimosa's in the morning, bingo by the pool a couple times of day - just a friendly open atmosphere - this was more private closed off, spread out.
The room was clean and had everything we needed in it. Had a full size kitchen with washer and dryer. Perfect for the extended stay. Had a light go out and it was fixed in 15 minutes. The pools are nice and so was the staff!
