    I just returned from a week at OLR. I rented from a member and we had the best time. We were in the recently renovated Tennis Villas in West Village. The location was perfect. It was walking distance to everything in West Village. West Village seems to have the most activities and there is something going on every day.

    We ventured off to River Island once. Spent an hour and it was not for us. It looks great and appears appealing. The crowds and type of crowds there made it very uncomfortable. We were not confident our stuff would be safe while hitting the pool, lazy river, slides, etc. We spent the rest of our time in our West Village.

    Just outside of the resort there is a Publix shopping center, Hooters, Miller's Ale House. There are tons of places right there. On the other side is a Target anchored by a bunch of other stores as well.

    If going to parks, prepare for a long trip. I knew this going in, so it was no big deal for us. Magic Kingdom is about 50 minutes from leaving your room and getting to the entrance. AK is about 20 minutes door to entrance (Blizzard Beach too). Epcot is about 25-30 minutes. DHS is about 20-25 minutes. Disney Springs is about 30 minutes (TL also). US/IoW, Sea World are a good bit away. We didn't go to those parks but it would be a drive.

    Are the tennis villas the high rise right next to the main office area?

    OL butts up to Disney properties, and you can often see the fireworks from your room. We have stayed in the River Island often (we have small children) and if you stay on the parking lot side you can see them quite well from your room.
