3 bedrooms for a blue studio deposit. Sounds good to me! You'll find lots of great deals with your 28k deposits,especially outside of red season times.

NEVER, seen Hershey park, although I have a friend that trades Bluegreen resorts for my Wyndham Resorts.

Here are the pics...We went Spring Break and I stayed at the resort for 4 days while my DH had to return home for business...and we could have stayed there without leaving...kids had a blast!

More Pics

We had such a good time there

- We played on the beach (they had tag football tournamont's on the beach/ volleyball on the beach)
- We went to a Luau ($15 per person (adults 1/2 price for kids)
- We participated in games
- We went to a Mardi Gras where they made baloon hats and had a hula hoop race
- We went to the restaurants and shops on the mall area
- We participated in the Kid's Carnival

To tell you the truth, the kids never asked to go to the parks when we did the activities on site (however we did the Pirate & Princess party at Disney prior to veggin at the resort).
