How to Get There
The hotel is located a 5-10 minute drive to Disney. Uber cost us about $25 from Orlando international. A Uber to magic kingdom was always around $12.
Check in was very quick but still detailed and friendly. We were given gym & pool times etc and details on the transfers to Disney. We were offered a ground floor room which was great with a little one in a buggy.
Our room was huge. 2 beds. 2 bathrooms. Large living room and decent size kitchen. It was very clean and tidy and looked recently decorated. Some of the furniture could be considered old fashioned but was all in good shape. The kitchen had a good size fridge freezer, microwave, oven with hob, coffee maker and dishwasher. There’s also a washer dryer in a separate storage cupboard. The only down side was lack of basic utensils. We didn’t have a tin/can opener or a baking tray although the plates were oven proof so no drama ask at reception and someone will come with hopefully the right utensils you need or find a creative way to solve any issues . We were left a lovely little pack with dishwasher and laundry detergents, washing up liquid, coffee, sugar etc and also a kitchen roll that come in handy.
Loved the pool. Water Temperature was pretty warm considering it got quite chilly over night. Spa was lovely as this hotel is very family friendly children are allowed in the spa which was a nice way to warm up after getting out of the pool. The water in the spa is kept very warm and the switch for the bubbles is on a pool on the side of the spa. Nice to relax and warm up after the pool! Towels were provided at the poolside and always plenty available.
Very small but had what we wanted. 2 tread mills, x trainer and free weights. We loved the little extras like the towels and disposable headphones so you could watch the tv while you worked out on the machines.
WIFI was excellent in our room. Good downloads speed and excellent upload speed. We were able to steam videos and FaceTime with no issues. Also WiFi in the lobby and around the pool. Not as quick as the room but still excellent for a large hotel with many people connected to it. Passwords for the WiFi in your room is kept on a writing pad next to the telephone so only you can access your room WiFi
Transfers to Disney
The shuttle from the hotel leaves at 7:55am and 11:55am. It leaves Epcot from lane 41 at 6:30pm, 9:45pm and 11pm. Takes around 10 mins. Worldquest is last pick up going and first drop off coming back which was great for us. Drivers all friendly. Didn’t expect tips but most people do tip.
Fantastic hotel very family friendly. Staff are always pleasant and helpful. We will definitely stay again next time we come back to Florida.
This place was absolutely amazing, especially when traveling with toddlers or young children. A 3-bedroom, 2 bathroom condo-like accommdation was so reasonably priced. We had a full kitchen, washer/dryer, lanai, dining room, dishes,TV's in each room ... what more could you ask for? It was clean and quite quiet. Shuttle to and from Disney was a perk plus a person on site who who her stuff. Would so highly recommend this.
Great location, 5 minutes to Disney, 20 min to Universal, SeaWorld, Sea Life Aquarium, full kitchen, wash/dryer, 4 tv’s everyone had their privacy! Great staff! Free coffee, tea and hot chocolate in lobby
Publix Supermarket, Walgreens and restaurants minutes away
Beds were comfy, place was clean, yes I would stay again
Visited World Quest Resort and what can I say it was fantastic, I enjoyed everything about the place, we had a great time 2 bedroom 2 bathroom condo on the 5 floor. Thank God there was a elevator there is 8 bldgs in this complex. I will stay here again when I come back to Florida. Also it is very reasonable considering the others. Nice and clean. We also went to the Mecum car show.
WorldQuest was a great option for my family trying to save some money on an already very expensive trip to Disney. By opting for a timeshare-type hotel model (two bedrooms with full kitchen and living area) we were able to cook breakfasts and pack lunches for our trips to the parks and we had lots of room to spread out and relax when we came home exhausted from a long day with the kids. Now, if you're looking for the latest in modern luxury, WorldQuest is not it, it's an older property and the amenities show a bit of their age, but nothing at all was unclean or not functioning properly. We were very comfortable, enjoyed the pool and hot tub, utilized the on-site small grocery store, and had a sandwich from the snack bar. The only real complaint I have is that the kitchen was stocked with only the absolute minimum of utensils and cookware and all of it very cheap. But, it was kind of what I expected.
All in all I'd recommend WorldQuest to a family who wants to have their fun during the day at the parks in Orlando, and doesn't need their hotel experience to be super high end. Just having our own bedroom (rather than sharing a single hotel room with our two kids) makes the whole thing worth it. We were able to sneak away to peace and quiet in the evenings while our kids watched a movie in their room... sometimes that's the best gift after a long day!
