Favorite Interval Orlando exchanges for Disneyworld?

Hello all: We are planning a Disneyworld vacation possibly for Thanksgiving week, 2023, and I'm gathering info about the resorts to request. Of course, all the Disney affiliated resorts look amazing on II, but I'm guessing those are difficult to impossible to exchange into (especially for a holiday week). Any suggestions for favorite resorts which are close and convenient for visiting the park? I've taken an initial perusal through the II offerings, but it's overwhelming. So much bigger and spread out than Disneyland, where I'm more familiar with the lay of the land. Thank you!

The three Marriotts across I-4 from the WDW complex would be my first choice - Sabal Palms, Imperial Palms, and Royal Palms. We've stayed at both the Imperial and Royal Palms and would return anytime we had the chance. All three are part of the Marriott World Center complex and (I believe, if it hasn't changed) therefore have access to all of the amenities there, including the newly-renovated pool complex at the hotel. The commute to WDW parks is quick and easy - up and over I-4 and you're on Epcot Drive. There are several other Marriott TSs in Orlando, but those are the most convenient to the parks. I honestly don't know which other TSs in Orlando trade in II but I'm sure you'll hear soon about the other options.

Perfect! Thanks so much! I will put these all on our list. They all seem to have availability around this Thanksgiving, so hopefully that will also be the case for next year.

I’m not sure if Orange Lake is an II Resort? It’s in RCI.
