The good: 1) Excellent location to get to Disney World (just of I-4 but not so close that you can hear the Interstate) 2)Sleep Number Beds (If you like adjustable firmness via an inflatable mattress with an airpump) 3)Can buy park passes at the hotel front lobby (same offers as everywhere else. ie no discount for one day only and discounts once you do multiple day passes, etc) 4) They have a 100% satisfaction guarantee and seem to do their best to honor it. (Manager on Duty did his best to resolve an issue with their 3rd party shuttle service to Disney World) 5) Seemed like nice pool areas and main lobby/ restaurants. (we didn't have time to visit them) The bad: 1) You will be charged a resort fee a day (2011). This is NOT a resort. I booked through hotels.com and then had to pay the extra hotel resort fee for access to "internet, shuttles and other amenities at the hotel" 2) The hotel is old but OK. People are saying 30 years maybe. They were doing remodeling and renovations while I was there. 3) We asked to have a room far away from the elevators and ice machines. The woman said "no problem" and gave us a room two doors down from the elevator. 4) Their 3rd party shuttle service (Platinum Shuttle Service) was supposed to pick us up at 6pm at EPCOT. We got to the pick up location at 5:56pm and the shuttle was not there. Waited till 6:15 to find out the bus left early. After calls to Radisson and the shuttle service dispatch the shuttle service lied and kept changing their story saying they were there till 6:05 and left. Was told by one Radisson employee and the shuttle service we would just have to wait till 8:45pm till the next one (we had already been there for 10 hours and was 100 degrees. We walked fast and ran some to make sure we were at the pick up point before 6pm. There was 12-15 other people waiting there including a man in a wheelchair with his family). We called dispatch and Radisson back a couple more times trying to get it sorted out. After an hour of this nonsense the Manager on Duty at Radisson asked me and my wife to get a cab and he would reimburse us the fee($22.75). He did so and also comped us one days resort fee. The kicker about the shuttle service is that 10 mins after the pickup time another shuttle from Platinum Shuttle came by and asked why we had not been picked up yet. He tried to charge the different groups of people waiting there $3 each person to take us. He talked to the dispatcher and was told to butt out of the situation and leave us there. The shuttle was empty and the company could care less about us standing out there in the 100 degree sun on top of trying to squeeze extra money out of us (in addition to what the hotel pays them). My wife now swears she will never take a shuttle service and we will need to just drive our car and pay parking.

Very clean & comfortable suites, Like staying at a favorite aunt's house. If you want luxery you'll need to pay 5x the price at a luxery resort. Since we were there just to sleep between park visits, it more then met our needs. I was very impressed with the friendly staff, FULL kitchen, daily fresh towels and daily light maid service ... something not always found at more expensive resorts. My 5yo loved the playground. The pool area was beautifully tropically lanscaped. Only disappointment was that the WiFi was only available in the lobby. It's a little difficult to find at first ...from 192 turn SOUTH on Old Wilson Lake Road and you'll see the entrance. Go a little west on 192 to find a major grocery store & a major retail store. Plenty of nearby restaurants and some food delivery services.

this a great resort, my husband and i rented the one bedroom suite and it was beautiful. The room was very clean and it had everything we needed. There was 3 or 4 different pools, spas, playgrounds, and a water area for little kids. I cant wait to visit again with the whole family and I would recommend this place to a friend.

The hotel in itself is like a mini-resort. The pool was great!! The two bedroom, two bath suite was wonderful, and the continental breakfast was a great money saver. However, I wasn't very impressed with the hotel service, conceirge service and the shuttle service to the parks. Those three services added stress to what was suppose to be a relaxing vacation.

We were thrilled with Orbit One Vacation Villas. When we first drove up, we were a bit hesitant because it was located on a busy highway. However, when we checked into the lobby, the lady was very friendly and helpful. The villa was even better. It was absolutely spotless and much nicer than we had expected. We are pretty picky when it comes to hotels, but this place was spotless and definitely updated. All the appliances were in the kitchen, and we loved having a washer and dryer. It was nice coming home with suitcases of clean clothes. We enjoyed our coffee each morning in the screened in patio and the kids loved the 2 pools. We got a phone call about seeing a presentation, but when we said no, they never called again. It was close to all the Disney resorts, and there were tons of restaurants to eat at. It is a great place for the family to visit, and we would go there again and recommend it to any families traveling to the Orlando area!

We stayed at Fantasy World Club Villas the week of March 22-29, 2011 and were quite pleased. We were initially concerned to see some construction on the property, but after checking in and exploring the property and the villa we decided it really wasn't a problem at all. The staff were all pleasant. The grounds are well kept, although very basic. Parking is more than adequate. The villa we stayed in on Sea World Ct. had obviously recently been updated. The kitchen and bathrooms were very clean and the tile, cabinets, and counter tops were newer. The appliances were slightly older but all in great shape. The upstairs bathroom was roomy and had a tub/shower combo. The down stairs bathroom was a very small but offered a second shower, which was nice. Even with 3-4 people showering each morning, the hot water did not run out. The dining and living room areas were simple and offered enough space. Overall, the bedrooms were a little small, but cleanly decorated and nice. All of us (three adults and one child) had no trouble staying comfortable and we did not feel crowded.The beds weren't the best or worst we've experienced at hotels/resorts - they were just okay. Both bedrooms had big closets, which was nice for hiding luggage and our other things out of sight - more like home. The screened back patio was very large and furnished with a table and chairs. There were only two minor concerns I had with this place: (1) The stairs were quite steap; more so than normal. I had to ensure my 4-year-old was escorted up and down the stairs, as I was afraid he would fall. (2) The washer/dryer combo is located upstairs with the bedrooms and was VERY loud. I intended to do laundry one night while my son was in bed and it was so loud I had to postpone until the next morning. It even interupted us watching TV down stairs! I cannot comment on the pool or other amenities as we really didn't use any other than the free Wi-Fi, which worked fine. The photos we saw on the hotels.com and the resort websites all appeared to be truthful. The only difference I found was that the TV was not a flat screen as pictured, but rather an older model. All of the TVs in the livingroom and bedrooms were fine. Safety wise the property is well lit and we had porch lights in the front and back of the villa which we could choose to use if we wanted. The doors all locked securely. We will likely stay at this resort again in the future, assuming we can get as good of a deal as we did this time.

This was our first stay here, and it went as smooth as I expected it to. It was clean, its was peaceful, it was safe, and it had wi-fi, which was important to me. If I had to complain about any one thing it would be the size, its comfortable, but for a suite, its to small. Its like any other average room but with a tiny retainer wall and pull out couch with TV, and that made it a suite. Not so much a suite as an added 8 foot space perhaps. But for the price and overall comfort, really it is what it is, and I would go back anytime I stay off Disney property. And until Disney realizes that paying for internet services in ONLY the most expensive resorts is unacceptable I will continue to stay in nice places like this.
