First up, I've emphasised value in the title because to me some of the comments below don't seem to balance the fantastic prices available for this resort against the service that can be delivered or expected at that price point. We've stayed in several similar resorts over the last few years (Vista Cay, Bahama Bay, Caribe Cove, Orange Lake Resort) and WorldQuest was by far the best at this price point.
For our 10 night stay we paid about $100 per night for a 2 bed condo which included taxes and resort fees (we didn't have anything extra to pay either on arrival or at checkout ... and I did check as I was expecting an additional $15 per night!). We opted for the zero cost housekeeping option which still gave us daily trash removal and, probably through an admin error, a change of towels etc part way through our stay.
I'll echo the positive comments others have made about the size of the apartments but the real standout feature for the resort has to be the pool area. There are loads of good quality, comfortable sun loungers with an endless supply of fresh pool towels and it never gets busy.
Here's a quick run down of my thoughts:
PRO
- excellent value
- great pool area
- large rooms
- clean (we had no roaches etc)
- very effective air con
- good, hassle free wi-fi coverage (in building and pool side)
- polite staff
- adequate in room appliances/equipment to self cater comfortably
- great location for Disney yet somehow it's quiet
- the Tiki bar has reasonable options for food/drink but the resort is equally happy for you to bring your own drinks to the pool (no glass, of course)
- pool open well into the night and is well lit (our kids loved swimming at 10pm)
- pool had a collection of inflatable toys available to guests
- our first call to maintenance (reset the in room safe as the previous occupants had locked it) was resolved within 10 minutes of us calling.
- ample free parking

CON
- building 1 is starting to need a little TLC - nothing major but it's just starting to show signs of wear and tear which need to be addressed soon before they do become issues (leaky taps/fawcetts, grime build up in the shower areas)
- we had a couple of minor annoyances with electrics - the safety tripped on sockets for the hairdryer and microwave and we also had problems with a couple of lights. NONE OF THESE WERE FAULTS - it just took calls to maintenance to show us how to reset them. It may be obvious to US residents that there are shared "reset" switches for some spurs (I'd checked the fuse box but wasn't aware some of the sockets actually had resets that would control other sockets e.g. hairdryers in both bathrooms were controlled by the same trips)
- we had to contact reception 3 times for our second maintenance problem (lighting problem) BUT to be fair we had left the do no disturb sign on the door so it could have been our fault.

Possibly the best recommendation I can give this resort is that for the 11 days prior to our stay we were in the gorgeous Marriot Cypress Harbour resort (which is more than double the cost). We expected WorldQuest to feel a bit like a "step down" but it held its own well against the Marriott and our vacation continued to be just as enjoyable.

Room Tip: Perspective: if you're paying bargain prices then be reasonable in your expectations! If you want true 4* this close to Disney then you need to think about paying 2 or 3 times as much. As others have said: Building 1 is very convenient for the pool area but can be noisy well into the evening (fine by us).

Dear TuffLittleUnit, thank you for placing us on a par with the Marriot Cypress Harbour Resort, as an independent hotel we have to try a lot harder to gain a loyal clientele amongst the well-know brands. I wanted to apologize for the annoyances you had with the reset switch on the plugs. We sometimes take these things for granted and I will make sure our desk knows to first ask the guests if they checked that before sending maintenance. I also wanted to reassure you that we do respect Do Not Disturb signs placed on doors. We try to follow-up throughout the day and resolve any issues before the staff finishes their shift. And I also wanted to thank you for taking the time to share your confidence with WorldQuest Resort and I trust that you’ll again allow us to host you when you return to Orlando.

Fantastic room with closed in balcony and view! Good, clean, working appliances and very spacious rooms. TV's were present in each room. We arrived quite late and were even upgraded to a 3 bedroom (initially booked a 2 bedroom but they were all out of 2 bedrooms). It was a very clean room, with a sweet scent. The staff was very friendly along with quick to respond. Our TV stopped working and I called down and they were there to fix it within 15 minutes and mind you this is a very big place with 7 different hotel buildings. They served continental breakfast every morning, it was very limited but it varied everyday and was very fresh! Keeping in the mind the fantastic value of this hotel and the amenities of a full condo that you get, and close proximity of all the Orlando attractions, IT IS VERY WORTH IT! I will definitely be back here when coming back to Orlando and will recommend this to all my friends.

Spacious 3 bedroom suites, well cleaned, good appliances and furnishings. Well located within short driving time for theme parks and malls but you need your own transport as there are no immediately local restaurants and shops, although I liked it being away from the hustle bussle. The shuttle service to theme parks is limited. Breakfast room crowded and the buffet limited but good. Second stay on August 2012 - the place remains like new - well maintained and one plumbing problem we had was fixed within an hour - we liked it so much we stayed an extra day and will eturn for longer next year.

Room Tip: Rooms nearest the breakfasr buffet and pool are the most convenient

Looking for a place outside Disney complex where you can reach the attractions faster then staying there? Paying half of the price? What about 100 bucks for 100 square meters apartment, two bedrooms, two bathrooms, balcony, fully equipped place? Don't waste time searching and book now.

Remarks: four options for cleaning, pay attention what are you choosing once values vary a lot, from 7 to 40USD daily. Breakfast is included, but quite sharp one, coffee and bread.
