"As parents, we first noticed that Lighthouse Key is a gated resort with 24hr security upon entrance. The pool with lake view was perfect - clean, good hours, and a "U" shape was interesting. The detached pool bar was added bonus and the light tropical music was fun. Clean towels always available by the pool too.
The condo itself was immaculate, cool temp, perfect lake view and view of the fireworks from Disney :-)) The balcony is huge with a fan on the ceiling. The kids loved having a room and bathroom to themselves vs. tripping over each other in a hotel room. We loved the space the condo provided. TV's were no problem in each room. Plenty of clean linens and garbage bags when we needed inside the condo. Garbage room around the corner. Elevator as well. The toaster didn't work well but the kitchen was fully equipped with all the cooking supplies on needs. Washer and dryer was very handy as we used it twice. The main lobby has single boxes of Tide that I got for free :-))
The main lobby is beautiful, clean, well kept. The staff is friendly and very helpful. It seemed at any given time of the day or night there were staff working at replacing linens, cleaning pool/grounds area, doing garbage, ect.
We didn't have time to check out the movie theatre.
The location of the resort is fantastic! It is close to IHOP, Dennys, Texas Roadhouse (meat n potatoes plus live entertainment restaurant), pretty much 1 block from Target, Publix, ROSS, a large Payless, dollarstore shopping area. Also Dunkin Donuts 4 blocks down, McDonalds across the street, Walgreens Pharmacy across the street, then there is all the "tourist" kinds of stores/Harley shop/Under Armour shop ect right down the road. So lots of shopping and food choices very handy. It's 30 min to Apopka. 15 min from Winter Park shopping mall (between Apopka and Bronson Dr (by the condo)). It's about 20 min from SeaWorld, Auquatica and only 12 minutes or so to the lower set of Outlet Shopping Mall.
You can see we never had a boring minute!!
Plus there is ample parking at the resort, that was never a problem.
Will go there again for SURE. :-))"
