CHOSE Orange Lake!!! definately has more to offer and is not far at all from the parks. I've been to both, but my family request Orange Lake every time. We only go every 4 years.
Ok, I also own at Sheraton Vistana and its close - really close and nice. However, I LOV Bonnet Creek as I feel like I am on Disney property and have backdoor access to the parks.
So here are my choices - in order;
- Bonnet Creek - its REALLY close to Disney Parks and you have backdoor access (I usually book at least 2 nights here in a 3 or 4 bedroom every trip)
- Orange Lake - its a lot to do onsite..great place if you are not just interested in Park hopping
- Sheraton Vistana - its closer than Orange Lake and has great amenities and pools onsite ... but feels a little over run compared to the others.
Silver Lake is adjacent to the park and has a backroad entrance.
Just came back from Vacation Village at Parkway and it was quick and easy to Disney. We were in one of the newest buildings and one of the nicest timeshares we've been in.
