I think some of the times I was there we actually stayed in Kissimmee, but I have a hard time telling where one city ends and the other starts. Disneyworld had grown each time I was there, but one trip we did Universal studios and not Disneyworld. Two of my trips there were on time share promo excursions.<quoted text>Not much has changed since 2005- there was a slowdown in land development due to the overall lousy national economy, but things have since picked up- new hotels and shopping centers as well as more cultural building and developing taking place and some of the most often used roads are all being widened to add another lane or two.
I LOVE the part of town I am in- while very close to the tourist corridor, it is quiet, peaceful and beautiful- truly a nice slice of semi-tropical paradise!
I was to both Universal and Disneyland in Cal in 1991, when my wife was there on a course and the kids and I went down to see her graduate, and then had a vacation. Much drier than Florida. The heat and humidity was almost too much for us in Aug 2011 in Ft Lauderdale. Bad timing for a vacation but was another timeshare which my current wife's daughter had given us which she had initially purchased. The last two timeshare trips I actually bought while there then backed out after returning home, which is really fortunate as I likely would now be in very hot water financially speaking.
Those time share people are very difficult to get to accept the word "no".:)a They take no as meaning they haven't yet given us all the benefits. You basically have to buy to get out of their place.
