My sister-in-law is thinking about staying at this resort. The pictures on the website make it look old and outdated. Have they upgraded this resort lately?

Orbit One is an okay resort

We have stayed there a few times, the most recent was October. I would say that the furniture is in horrible condition, but it was nice when we visited two years before. Light yellow is not a good fabric choice for timeshare travelers. The furniture was so stained!

I thought the large whirlpool tub was very nice. It is 48 X 72, one of the largest we have ever seen. It is old styled, beige fiberglass and really needs replacing because it is outdated. The shower is part of the tub. The cabinets are clean and nice. We never saw a single bug and it was very humid weather, so I was expecting to see some. The tile floor is just like the ones at Summer Bay. Must have been the same company. The dining table was really nice. The king bed was comfortable. The washer and dryer unit was brand new, electronic Maytag. Very nice.

There are so many really nice places to stay near Disney that I would never consider staying there again now that we saw the stained furniture, unless they deal with that problem. The kitchen cabinets are clean white. I think they should add an island or something. There is a huge space between the kitchen and dining area that is just wasted.

The unit was still a step up from our OLCC experience. If I had the choice of a So. Magnolia Ct. unit at OLCC and Orbit One, I would take Orbit One every time. ;)
