Why We Like It
Floridays Resort Orlando is a family-friendly condominium-style resort conveniently located near Walt Disney World, SeaWorld and Universal Orlando. Located on International Drive near the Daryl Carter Parkway, it’s also less than 1 mile from the Vineland Premium Outlets, grocery stores and many restaurants. Newly added to MouseSavers Preferred Hotels, this all-suite tropical-themed resort features 2- and 3-bedroom fully-furnished condominium-style suites with full kitchens that give you plenty of room to spread out and the ability to cook or prepare your own meals. The suites easily suit large parties and families. Perhaps best of all, the nightly rates at this resort are a great value — especially when you consider how much space you’ll have!
The beautifully landscaped 20-acre property includes six 6-story villa towers. The towers are nestled near the lobby, courtyard and main pool, or near a small lake and second pool. No matter where you are, it’s an easy walk from the towers to the resort’s main hub, where you’ll find most of the resort’s activities. There’s a poolside bar and grill and adjoining café and marketplace that serves breakfast, sandwiches, hot and cold drinks and more, a fitness center and game arcade as well as the large main pool. The main pool features an expansive zero entry and kiddie water playscape and splash pad area. A second pool offers a quiet respite and relaxing jacuzzi. Both pools are heated year-round. At the main pool there is plenty of room to lounge in the shade or soak up the sun poolside while enjoying a cocktail or cool beverage.
The resort offers scheduled daily shuttles to all of the major theme parks (please check for latest info here) — Walt Disney World’s Transportation Hub at Epcot, SeaWorld and Universal Orlando. In addition to nearby shopping, you can have groceries delivered to your suite by the nearby Publix Super Market! And for those who don’t want to cook for themselves, room service is available. The I-Ride Trolley stops right in front of the resort, and travels throughout the I-Drive area to plenty of dining and shopping options — so you may find you don’t need or even want a rental car during your stay. (Of course, if you want a lot of flexibility, we recommend you consider renting a car.)
Floridays Resort Orlando offers a terrific place to relax and unwind from busy days in the theme parks. You’ll have a home-style family getaway with all the basic comforts you’ll need to enjoy a terrific vacation.

Every 2-bedroom suite sleeps up to 6 guests, and is a nicely spacious 1,017 square feet, with one king-size bed in the master bedroom and two full size beds in the second bedroom.

Every suite includes an open design living room and dining area, a furnished private balcony and fully-equipped kitchen with an island. Bedrooms are separated for maximum privacy, and each bedroom has its own television. All suites include:
- full-size refrigerator

If you are used to staying in a standard hotel room, you will find that the amenities of a condominium-style suite make your stay even more enjoyable. These spacious suites give everyone in the family space to spread out, bedroom privacy, and the ability to prepare your own food. Choosing when and what to eat on real plates with silverware feels more like home and is more relaxing than eating pizza perched on the edge of a hotel bed. And having a full kitchen can really help reduce overall food and dining costs. Combining the comforts of home, like a washer and dryer in your suite, with the atmosphere of a friendly resort, just makes vacationing less stressful. The nightly cost at Floridays is about the same as a moderate hotel, but you get much more.
Traveling with small children? Cribs, highchairs and Pack ‘n Plays can be provided upon request for no additional charge. To make arrangements, contact the resort directly.

You Should Also Know
Floridays is a vacation ownership resort, but offers more extensive housekeeping services than most other ownership resorts and vacation rentals. Daily housekeeping (refresh) includes a restock of toiletries and toilet paper; beds are made and towels are changed as necessary. A full housekeeping service is included once every 7 days. There is a charge of $40 for an additional full housekeeping service.
You will receive a starter kit of K-Cup coffee, laundry detergent, dish detergent, and bath products that should last at least 2-3 days, but for longer stays most guests bring their own products. If you’re staying for more than a few days we suggest you bring some laundry and dishwasher pods and travel-size bath items in a ziplock bag, or you can get them from Publix or Walgreens when you arrive.
If you are in a hurry to get to the parks, know that morning lines for breakfast at the café can be long; we suggest avoiding the wait by purchasing some extra coffee and breakfast items when grocery shopping and enjoying them in your suite.
Floridays is a pet-friendly property. If you have pet allergies, you may want to request a stay in a unit that does not allow pets. Two of the property’s six towers are pet-free. If you are bringing a pet, there is a $200 additional charge per stay.
While the resort is on 20-acres, most of the activities are centered in and around the courtyard of the main pool. This gives Floridays Resort Orlando an intimate and friendly feel that we find enjoyable. Floridays is an excellent choice if you are visiting the parks for more than 2 or 3 days and want a nice place to spread out, have some privacy, plus the ability to cook or prepare your own meals. The terrific location, combined with easy access to all of the major parks, groceries, restaurants, and outlet shopping add to the ‘relaxed vacation’ feel, and overall the resort offers exceptional value for the cost.
