1. I am loving your orange lake resort reviews!
    I am going there next week from NYC! I am healthcare worker here taking my first vacation in 3 years and first time with my 8 year old I disney. I was wondering if you have any input/ recommendation on which building at River island to stay. We have a 2 bedroom pool view suite. I was asked if I prefer building 8100 or 8200 and I cant make up my mind lol. Thank you!

    1. Hi, I hope you will have the best time. Unfortunately, I’m not sure which of those buildings offers the best views. But I do know that River Island is awesome. Have fun!

  2. hi, thanks so much for the review, are you able to tell me how far this resort is from Universal Studios.

    1. You are welcome. I don’t know exactly, but this resort is near Walt Disney World. Universal Studios is on the opposite side of Orlando. Just guessing, it might take 30 minutes to get there without traffic. But traffic here is terrible, especially on I-4 and that would be the quickest route.

  3. Any suggestions on where to stay for 1 night before I check into River Island with 2 adults and 2 teens. Do not want to spend a lot as flying in around 6pm on Friday and checking in Saturday. Just wanted somewhere clean!

    1. Hi, I like to stay at the Flamingo Crossings Resorts, they are less than five minutes from Orange Lake on the toll road. Any of the hotels would be fine, but I would probably go with the Fairfield for a one-night stay.

  4. Thank you for this review, it was very helpful. We are a family of 9 traveling to Orlando for Halloween week and staying at River Island Village. I hope it will be warm enough for the kids to enjoy the pools!
