    Would love advice on the best place to stay in Orlando for my parents and teenagers (good price, but near Disney and Universal)

    I found one of the best resorts to stay at is the Cypress Point Grand Villas.

    We've stayed here 3 times already and so has my brother and his family with a 10 year old and 4 year old. They loved it too cause it close to everything.

    It's a condo resort with two pools (Volcano in one of them), game room, snack store on site, 1, 2, or 3 bedroom villas with 2 full bathrooms (hot tub in master), washer dryers, fully stocked kitchens with utensils, big screen TVs and DVD players in the master suite and living room.

    The game room has a DVD rental machine in it too.

    It's Right off the entrance to Disney property where you can enter by the downtown Disney side of the park, where there are plenty of food places and a Winn Dixie to get groceries too.

    To get to Sea World or Universal would take about 10-15 Mins. To get to Disney world would take about 10-15 mins. The main interstate is 3 mins just down the street to go up or down Interstate 4.

    Now, I found you can get great savings.. usually about $800-$1000 off if you are a vacation club member of some of the vacation clubs out there. We often stay for $300-$500 for the entire week at a 2 Bedroom villa. My friend stayed in a 1 Bedroom villa for $149 the entire week!

    But only club members get these prices.

    You can see more about club memberships at

    Otherwise, you'll pay $1200-$1800 for a weeklong stay at Cypress Point Grand Villas. There's even a way to refer people to our club and make a nice paycheck too. I don't know if that's an interest for you, but incase it is.. this site explains more:

    Now... I am sure other people have their favorites, but I always love condo stays over hotel stays where all the family sleeps in 1 room, listening to dad snore and anyone who gets up and uses the bathroom. Plus the adults in condos get privacy... their own room, and the kids get their own room, so... you know.... adults can have their fun... ;)
