The lakes and nature preserve surrounding the sprawling Ritz-Carlton Grande Lakes makes the resort feel far removed from the theme parks. The truth is, you can be knocking on Disney's door in 15 minutes. With 580 rooms, this is one of Ritz-Carlton's largest properties. The amenities are oversize as well. There's an 18-hole Greg Norman golf course, and the spa is a two-story, 40,000-square-foot affair with a private outdoor pool, steam room, and a lush garden rooftop for alfresco treatments in hammocks. The guest rooms, most with golf course and lake views, are done in icy blues and metallic tones with light wood furnishings, flat-screen TVs, and white marble bathrooms. If you stay on the Club Level, you'll be privy to five gourmet meals and hors d'oeuvre services throughout the day (including a continental breakfast and nightly wine reception). There's a pretty outdoor pool fronting the lake, and guests can also use the jungle pool and lazy river at the JW Marriott right next door.—Terry Ward
