During our Summer Vacation in Florida, we were able to stay at the Lake Buena Vista Resort Village and Spa in Orlando Florida. A beautiful gem set within just a few miles of the major theme parks Walt Disney World, Seaworld, and Universal Studios. The kids and I had been staying at some amazing hotels during our Summer Vacation in Florida, but this one for sure was like a home away from home. Everything down to the way the resort was set up made you feel right at home.
During your stay, you are given a one, two or three bedroom suite which overlooks a beautiful view as far as the eye can see. Checkin was a breeze which only took a few minutes to do, the kids were able to look around the lobby and find brochures with things to do around the area. Once checked in you are given your building location as well as directions on how to get to your room. Don’t forget to check your room key card holder for some great coupons to use at the on property amenity locations. Coupons for the stayReflections Spa & Salon, Pizza Hut Express and Frankie Farrell’s were included.
While on our August Summer Vacation Trip I learned that I have no ability to “pack light” for any type of trip. I seemed to have brought exactly what we needed and more. I’m still shocked that I was able to fit it all into the 2017 Kia Sedona, that mini van is amazing by the way. I don’t want to say that I have any type of magical powers but I will say that that minivan plus I made some serious magic happen on this trip.

After spending about two weeks stuck in double bed rooms with the kids I was more than excited to arrive at this resort. I was able to have my own room with a king size bed, oh did I mention that huge jacuzzi? Yeah, that beauty right there was my best friend once the kids went to bed. I loaded it up with bubbles and popped a bottle of wine and relaxed. I loved the bed and pillows, felt like I was at home in my own bed, the beautiful shower was a delight as well.
All of their one, two, three and four bedroom suites have the extra touches of granite counter tops in the full kitchen equipped with dishes, silverware and basic necessities for preparing meals, glass topped dining table, jacuzzi tub, washer and dryer and private balcony.
The kitchen was huge and it had ample space for me to make home cooked meals for dinner and breakfast. I make a mean breakfast buffet when we are traveling, the kids love starting the day off mom’s pancakes. The kitchen included a full-size kitchen with a Dishwasher and Washer and dryer that handled out huge loads of laundry. I enjoyed sipping on my morning coffee and sitting on the balcony checking out that gorgeous view. Before we would leave to go explore the property I would just load up the dishwasher and go about our day. We would come back to clean dishes and make a delicious meal just like at home.

I loved visiting the spa and loved how even though I had my girls with me, they were able to participate and have a mini spa treatment as well.
When it comes to picking a pool for my 4 gremlins, I like to pick a pool that all 4 of them can enjoy at the same time. I was happy to find that the Pirates Plunge Waterpark was able to satisfy all of the kid’s needs. It had an awesome water slide that the kids must have gone down a million times. Keke even faced her fear and went down the “dark” slide and came out smiling and screaming with joy. Esuun had her floaty so she swam around everywhere in that pool and even made her way to the Wading part. Malik had a great time testing out the hammocks before we left, and Antony really enjoyed the freedom of being able to jump into the water as many times as possible.
If you are looking for an upscale affordable home away from home option, head over to Lake Buena Vista Resort Village and Spa. The rooms are very spacious and definitely made me feel like a queen with how much space I had in just my bedroom with my jacuzzi. The full sized kitchen was a bonus and really helped this mom stay in budget with her crazy vacation adventure. I truly felt like I was staying in a home away from home the entire time I stayed at this resort. There were tons of things to do on the property as well as the Pirate’s Plunge Waterpark which was the kids favorite part. I definitely would recommend this to large families looking for ample space within a reasonable budget.
