February weather in Orlando is great, when you are trying to escape Ole Man Winter for a spell.

We have just returned from a week's timeshare stay at WorldMark's Kingstown Reef, located just across I-4 from the Disney complex. The accommodations were good and the location is perfect for an Orlando visit of a week or more. The 2-bedroom units apparently, at one time, were "lockouts"; but have been converted to a simple 2-bedroom configuration.

For those of you not familiar with "lockouts", a lockout is a 2-bedroom unit that has a separate entrance to the second, or guest, bedroom. It includes a mini kitchen and bath with the 2nd bedroom; so that the timeshare owner or guest can choose to use the master bedroom and its living quarters separate from the guest quarters, or they can be combined to accommodate 6 to 8 persons.

Timeshare bedrooms are configured in various ways from resort to resort. At Kingstown Reef, the master bedroom contains a king-size bed and the second bedroom has two double beds. And the usual queen-size pull-out sofa bed is present in the livingroom.

The resort has two spacious pools and two hot tubs and a BBQ and eating area. Our unit was located on the 5th floor and we had a good view of the pools and recreation areas.
