For french speakers : excellent resort sur Orlando, très bien placé par rapport aux parcs Disney et Universal.
Les chambres sont grandes, modernes et très bien équipées. Nous avons adoré les détails : fer à repasser, TV dans toutes les pièces, baignoires à remous, plusieurs WC, service d'étage très silencieux, et des moustiquaires quasi-invisibles intégrées aux fenêtres !
Piscine OK, parking très facile, et un environnement très familial et cosmopolite. On a adoré, merci Stephen !
For others : everything is great, even in the details. We loved that resort, perfect for families that want space and confort. Near Universal and Disney parks. Thanks Stephen, we will come back !
Wow, what a fantastic resort. There were 5 of us that went to the Magic Kingdom on Saturday. We stayed at Mystic Dunes for two nights and it was fantastic. The outside pools are heated. Next time we should stay an extra day just to join all the amenities. They had activities for the kids and free snacks. It was so very close to Disney World. Would never even consider staying any where else.
