We loved our family suite! Parents get a room with a door that closes and a bathroom with a nice large shower stall. Public area of suite has sofa bed, kitchenette with microwave and refrigerator, and a dining table with four chairs. The chairs are stackable, which is great when you convert the dining table into…another bed! Second bathroom has... More

We stayed here for 7 Days/6 Nights and we had a BLAST! We met up with 3 other families all staying here and it is an excellent location. Each sections has it's own pool and laundry area which was a plus. The main dining area was at the center, yes it can be a little bit of a walk to... More

Rooms are beautifully themed down to every detail! Pool areas are creative and well maintained! Staff friendly and informative! We have stayed in a variety of Disney hotels and condo properties, but this is easily one of our favorites! It's a great value for the cost and our son loves the characters displayed throughout the resort!

When we arrived there, the first impression for us was that the staff were professional (from the person who greeted us to get our luggage to the check-in service) and the Hotel is huge with impressive wall background pictures. The queue to check-in was quite a long queue, but luckily they have a special place to entertain kids whilst they... More

Such a fun resort. Pool area is great. We stayed in the cars family suite and was thrilled to see all the cars from one of his favorite movies! Only downside is the lack of a sit down restaurant but otherwise another Disney gem!

A visually appealing resort for a fun family visit. We had a short stay with adult children who enjoyed the novelty of the Lion King suite and the details of the different resort sections. We toured the pool areas which seemed to be very nice for younger children. The front desk staff were welcoming and the room was clean and... More

This was an amazing resort that our entire family enjoyed. The grounds are huge and offer many great Disney images to experience. There are larger-than-life replicas of Lion King characters, Cars characters, Little Mermaid characters, and others. The main pool is massive, great area for kids to play as well. The water was perfect, even on the tad warm side.... More

Rooms very small, and dirty. Dated and needs a good re-furb. The food court was dirty too and gave me an upset stomach. Don't stay at this hotel. Stay on International Drive, for less money and a much nicer overall experience.

My husband and I went with my sister, her husband, and their 8 year old son, to what is becoming an annual tradition. We stayed in late August, which is just after schools start in the south, so most of the people there are from the Northeast and from the UK. The resort was bustling, but never felt uncomfortably crowded.... More
