This sunny resort just outside of Orlando is a true home away from home, albeit one that puts you close to Disney and steps from top-notch amenities. You’ll feel as if you’re staying in an upscale Florida subdivision, complete with community pools, tennis courts, playgrounds, wide sidewalks and copious palm trees. Rooms are situated in neat towers; stand-alone houses (some available for rent) line streets neighborhood-style. Elegant touches in the lobby include a fountain, a grand piano and a bar that serves fresh sushi.
Bed & Bath
Each unit is a suite with a full kitchen, living room and balcony, plus one to three bedrooms. Formal but comfy decor evokes a model home or a furniture showroom. Dining tables seat six, and you’ll find flat-screen TVs in both the living room and master bedroom. Another plus: one spacious bathroom per bedroom. It’s home base — with maid service.
The resort’s shining stars are its golf courses and water park. Other perks include two signature restaurants: Forte, specializing in Italian fare (go for the wine — the cellar boasts more than 250 selections), and Eleven, an indoor/outdoor rooftop space with a respectable small-plates menu, as well as entrees like fennel-crusted snapper (the view of the fireworks at Disney’s Epcot theme park is pretty dandy too). Also on-site: a boutique spa inside a two-story home.
How to Get There
Had plenty of room and enough to not get in each others way. Several pools and a water park. Rooftop dining and great place to see the fireworks. Great golf course local as well as footgolf. Secure site, Just off I-4 for travel to parks.
This was a family vacation for the 7 of us and we stayed at Reunion for 2 weeks. the location was perfect to Disney Parks and the unit was spacious and on a golf course. Very nice ! WE would definitely go back again to this resort. Very nice
As another reviewer recently wrote things have gone a little downhill at Reunion Resort. In 2014 8 of us stayed in a fabulous villa on Patriots Landing and we were blown away by everything about it. Two years ago we stayed in the main building in a two bedroom apartment and once again it was great. This time, August 2019 it was a different situation. We stayed in 407 in the main building. The apartment itself was great. The problem was the lack of hot water most mornings. You cannot run a hotel/ resort and not have hot water! So, most mornings we had a cold shower before heading off to Disney or Universal Studios, via Reception, where we would complain about the water problem. The other problem in that room was that the fan in the master bedroom toilet when switched off would trip the light in the toilet and shower cubicle. So having a cold shower, in the dark!!!
I did hear other guests complaining about the lack of hot water too. Reunion Resort you HAVE to supply hot water, at any time of the day or night.
One other thing to mention is that the rooftop pool, or something else up there is leaking. Badly. Luckily for you I didn't take any photos but looking down over the balcony the window frames are revoltingly green. You obviously know this so do something about it.
Will I return again.....honestly I'm not sure. We like it for the location but there are flaws which need addressing. Not the American Dream this time I'm afraid!
