Let me start by saying that I would definitely recommend this property and will be staying here again. We chose Orange Lake Resort due to its proximity to Disney, cost and great reviews. We had 11 people and stayed in a 3 bedroom villa. Everyone had a bed and the unit was big enough that we did not feel crowded - and having 3 bathrooms was great. The unit had a full-sized kitchen as well as washer and dryer. Disney is only a few miles away and there are many restaurants and stores right outside the entrance to the property. The staff (front desk, housekeeping, food service, etc.) were all friendly and helpful. There are plenty of activities on the property as well as restaurants with bars. The food and drink prices weren't outrageous considering where you are. The food was acceptable but nothing to rave about but, like I mentioned before, there are plenty of other choices just outside the gate. The only issue could be noisy neighbors if you are sleeping in a bedroom that has a window out to the main hallway.
Overall, it was a great stay. Don't hesitate to stay here - I will be back.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by The Viajer Beautiful resort, needs better PR training.
My not perfect rating for this hotel (I always consider Holiday Inn hotels first compare to any other) is my experience after checking in (no problems here). The associate that tried to sell us the package to use the pool and mini golf on the premises was very rude and un professional when we decline on the offer.
Once we were done with the awkward moment, it is a beautiful place!
Rooms are clean, beds comfortable and the living space is pleasant.
All the area around is well groomed and walking around you feel cocoon in a vacation land.

This was the second time we stayed at Orange Lake. It had been 8 years since last visit and the resort was now managed by IHG. We were very impressed that the facility was still in great shape. We arrived late at night and were checked into a villa in west village. Turned out that we were quite a distant from the pools and river island areas. This is good if you want to be in a more isolated and quiet portion of the resort but as a family with kids we wanted to be able to walk right down from our room to pool area so we asked if they could move us the next day to River Island location and our request was honored without any hassles. This place has all you need (Pools, golf, tennis, putt putt, lazy river, etc), has convenient shuttles to get you around the resort and is very close to the Disney Parks. The only drawback that we found was the cost of shuttle to the parks for large family as it is on a per person basis.
