Convenient place to experience the Disney World

The room was quite clean, even in the mirror and molding areas where dust or mold could gather. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The swimming pool water was lukewarm so it was very comfortable to jump in there in the evening. Food variety was a bit limited and it was hard to get sufficient vegetable unless we ate cold boxed salad often. Taking the buses to the Disney parks was convenient - the wait time was usually around 15 minutes. The boat ride to Disney Spring from the hotel was very enjoyable.

Okay hotel

Pros: I did not like the food and I did not like the fact that the cleaning staff did not replenish the shampoo and conditioner.
Cons: Cleaning staff should be more aware of providing the necessities when there is none.
Location: Love Walt Disney World, Epcot and Hollywood Studios. The location is perfect.
The registration staff were very nice I didn't have to wait I was immediately taken care of. I was greeted by staff. The overall status of the resort was very nice.

Stay

Pros: Walking path, cleanliness, staff was efficient and so nice
Cons: The lines in the food court got really long at times and could not move around there
Rooms were great, good location. Never waited long on a bus to travel from one park to another. I was impressed with the cleanliness.

Wonderful way to go full Disney

Cons: Only complaint would be the boat transportation to Disney Springs. It wasn't on time and the captains weren't very friendly like all the other staff.
Location: Very convenient to Disney Springs, Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Animal Kingdom, and Hollywood Studios.
This was the first time we stayed at a Disney resort and we couldn't have been happier. The room was well maintained and clean. The housekeeping staff was wonderful. We loved the pool, movies on the lawn, and the friendly staff. We came to Disney to celebrate our daughter's 6th birthday and everyone in the hotel wished her a happy birthday when she walked by. It's in a great central location for all of the parks and Disney Springs. The buses were very reliable and easy to use. I loved that the resort was smaller and more intimate so that we didn't have to walk too far to get to the dining hall, pool, or bus stop. The grounds are simply gorgeous, and even though it's in a more adult and luxurious setting, there's plenty of activities for the kids. It's a great balance for the grownups and the kids. Overall it was a great experience and we hope to stay here again in the future.

Check in nightmare

Pros: Décor was nice, it was clean, and quiet to sleep in UNTIL morning. Heard house keeping with grass blower cleaning off steps.
Cons: Check bracelets PRIOR to guest check in and offer rides to buildings. I saw golf carts parked in parking lot that saw staff driving.
Location: Downtown Disney
Upon arrival I had to wait over 30 minutes to check in. A couple was in front of me experiencing the same issue DESPITE booking reservation online. The issue was with the bracelets the hotel has guests use would not work. The desk clerk helping the couple couldn't figure out HOW to get their bracelets activated. He had to go find someone else to help him. Then after the conserier line had been ended the clerk there helped me with check in. So in total I spent an hour checking in. Then I had a 10 minute walk from the parking lot to the building, thus making NOT worth the effort to stay ON Disney property. Had I stayed at the Marriott around the corner I could of had parking right in front of the building. I had no do not disturb tag for my room so the maid came at 9:00 am waking me up. Plus the maid came before 11:00 am on my date of check out, despite the hotel policy being 11:00 am check out.

Convenient for walking

The hotel is amazing! We loved all parts, but our favorite is how close together everything is. It was easy for me and my kids (of all ages) to walk from the hotel to the pool, restaurant, shop, bus stop, boat dock, etc. So many of the Disney hotels are so large that you spend a lot of time walking back and forth, just within the hotel. This was SO convenient! Added plus were the horse and buggies that passed by our room in the evenings and the free marshmallow roasting. We will definitely stay here again!

Pros: this hotel is just the right size it is not so big that you have to go far to enjoy all the hotel has to offer.
Location: buses pick u up to go to all the parks and the boat takes u to downtown Disney u can also rent a car to go to universal

I love the size and theme of this hotel

Pros: Pool food court and busses
Cons: more variety on the food court menu, more healthy options, salads did not look fresh
Location: Pool was so fun and I could smell the campfire for marshmallows but could not find it
GREAT pool! I love the slide and theming. the food court was great and I had many beingets! Love the jazz music and water fountains all around the grounds. Our room was far, but our family had building 5 which was perfect between the pool and food court and busses. Busses were very reliable. The boat to downtown was relaxing. Wish we had a little more room in the room or option for just the king bed.
