It's not that there is something particularly wrong with it , it is just busier & not as nice to look at as other areas, more cheap gift shops than other areas

I don't thnk it has changed that much in 2 years , it is nearly 20 years since I last stayed there & it has changed a lot since then.

To find out what is wrong, just do a search.

There was a thread just the other day that said what is wrong. Why start a new one just to rehash?

If you found it fine in '08 then you'll be alright, don't worry it's not changed for the worse (or better) since.

The pointe orlando end is nice and new looking not tacky and looks well kept. The other end is a bit run down still acceptable though. (Just lots of tacky shops) I wouldn't worry too much about it. Plenty of people stay there and surrounding. I think that the pointe orlando is just the preferred now.

The area is not to everybody's taste. That does NOT mean there is anything wrong with it; nothing at all. You have no reason to not enjoy your trip.

I would be more than happy to stay at that end of I drive, there is plenty to do and see, a few bars ,tacky gift shops, some good adventure golf too.

I really wouldn't worry about anything .

I'm not a fan of I drive full stop.

The wet'n'wild side is definately the less desireable end though. Years ago, we always stayed I drive and it was fine, but unfortunately, the lack of investment has meant that the W'n'W end has become a bit lower end and tacky. We booked the enclave suites a couple of years ago, but only stayed one night. It wasn't how I remembered it and I think that having stayed in some fab places inbetween, we have become a little bit spoilt.

Lake Buena Vista is much nicer because it is newer.

a note.

Look how many brits are willing to stay there, and how many americans don't even consider it. Most brits who have been before, choose other areas and once they have, don't go back.

Personally, If I don't know an area, I let these type of things guide me (ie local knowledge). Many who Love this area don't/can't drive, or have never experienced other areas. If you can't or don't want to dirve, there are other options- you aren't stuck there.

In all my years here, I have never heard of anyone who experienced other areas different from North Idrive who ever went back there.
