Nice stay at the Blue Heron. Didn't use any of the services, but the room was very nice, with a lot of room for four adults and two children. We had a two bedroom with two bath. Well appointed with everything we needed to eat in. It was clean and everything worked well. Great view of the lake and rising sun. 15 minutes to the Magic Kingdom and several restaurants and shopping (groceries) within a few minutes drive.

I took my family to visit Disney World for the first time and staying at The Blue Heron Beach Resort made our vacation completely magical. The staff was amazing. We stayed in the one bedroom family suite and it was equipped with everything we could possibly need. I must say that even though we didn't get to enjoy the property completely due to our short stay. It will definitely be our number 1 pick everytime we go to Orlando. The whole family loved it.

We had a great time this past weekend at Blue Heron. Check in was easy, view from the rooms literally cannot be beat (unless you stay at a Disney monorail resort maybe). We were about 5 min from Sea World, and less than that to get onto Disney property. It took us about 35 min to get back up to our 17th floor room from the turnstiles at the Magic Kingdom, which is just as good as if you take a bus to a Disney resort from the Magic Kingdom. It was great. Only complaint I have is that the floors d... Read more

The rooms are very spacious with everything you would need for a comfortable stay in Orlando!

The Blue Heron is in a good location, very close to parks, outlets, and restaurants. The staff was very friendly, the pool area was nice and well maintained. The rooms are decent but I think they needed to be better equipped with better cooking utensils. I've stood at way better places. I personally will not stay there again. If traveling with kids try the Tiki Liki, Holiday Inn Orange Lake Resorts.

My family of 5 stayed 6 nights. Overall, the condo was clean with sufficient but not abundant supplies, pool area and surrounding walking areas were nice, . Place did seem a bit older, tile floors were loose and grout missing in some areas, plaster on outside of building falling off in areas. Card readers in elevators didn't work alot of the time. Actual grounds area green space quite small. Tucked in behind a strip center and put put golf. Friendly staff.

I was so scared. The reviews were kind of mixed. We absolutely loved this place. Close to all the parks and shops. The room is huge. Full kitchen, living, dining, 2 bathrooms (can't beat that). The master bedroom had a jacuzzi tub and I took full advantage of that. We were facing the pool and Lake, the view was spectacular!! Will definitely return to this resort. Awesome!! The only reason I didn't give 5 stars, there's always room for improvement.

The room was great. The only issue we had was upon check in. I reserved a two bedroom suite (which was prepaid) but they tried to give me a one bedroom. I needed to show the receptionist my email with confirmation and email it to her to get it corrected. She did get us a two bedroom but at 11pm at night and another 30 minutes to check in was quite annoying.

This is the second time that we have stayed at the Blue Heron , the last time was in 2014. Having been 9 times to Florida, I have have yet to find a more perfect location or view from the pool or balcony, especially with self catering facility. We stayed on the 8th floor this time with a brilliant view over the lake. There are places to eat within walking distance and it is just a few minutes from the entrance to Disney, with Sea world not much further away. A good sized apartment with ample... Read more

We booked a 13 night stay for a family of 5 in a one bedroom condo. First impressions were good, a great view of the lake and had nearly everything we needed, although the place smelled damp and there was a big stain on the bedroom floor. It was only at night that it became apparent that all was not as good as we first thought, the bunk beds were so uncomfortable and one of the slats actually fell down hitting my son. The sofa bed mattress was in such a bad state, we had to use the sofa cushion... Read more

Excellent place to stay if you have a family. Master is ensuite and has a balcony overlooking Lake Bryan. Well equipped kitchen area too with a washer and drier. Great location near to Disney Springs where parking is free and transport to all the Disney parks is. Only gripe is you don't get a cleaner or clean sheets unless you pay extra even if it says it's included not great for a two weeks stay. Plenty of restaurants within walking distance too.

We loved this place. We were on the side that we could see the lake from our room. The pool is large and very family and kid friendly. The kitchen is a plus so you don't have to eat out every night. The only draw back was getting out into the highway. It is very busy and hard to get in and out.
