We just got back from an 8-night stay at Orange Lake Resort. We had a 2-br villa with kitchen, washer/dryer, whirlpool tub, screened balcony and pond/forest/sunrise view. We even discovered we could see MK fireworks from our room one night! I booked it based on the write-up in the Unofficial Guide and it was fabulous.
Our family of 7 had plenty of space to spread out and relax. The washer/dryer is an absolute blessing when your party of 7 comes back soaking wet, which happened at least half the days of our trip.
Free parking. Low resort fee ($8/nt). Several different pools and activities are on site and the entire resort is beautifully landscaped. It borders Animal Kingdom Lodge property and there is a Publix (grocery), Target, and many restaurants right outside the gates.
You will need a rental car, but for us even with the minivan rental we still saved $900 by booking offsite at Orange Lake over a DVC points rental or 2 standard rooms at WDW.
Friendly staff. Delicious breakfast buffet (extra charge, but cheaper if you add it when booking.)
The only drawback to me was that with such a large (luscious) resort, it took time to drive from our room in the way back section to get out to the main road. So drives to the parks were more like 18 minutes than the 11 I expected.
I would not hesitate to stay there again though!
