This was our first time staying at the Sun Viking during the Turkey Run of 2012. Overall we had a good stay and I would stay here again. The pictures on tripadvisor of the hotel and pool areas are a good representation of what we saw during our stay. I found the bed to be more comfortable than the bed we'd just slept in at Disney, but my wife didn't care for it. My kids slept on the pull out sofa and they said it was very comfortable. The sofa is a little different and does not have a bar that crosses just under your back, which is a good thing I laid down on the sofa bed to see how comfortable it was and it seemed fine to me. The room was clean, but the comforters on the beds were clearly near the end of their life cycle and need to be replaced. The pool with the slide was heated and we used it nearly every day. it was windy and cool during our stay, but the water in the pool and on the slide we heated enough to make swimming when it is in the low 60's and windy comfortable. We loved the hot tub and the indoor pool was also nice. The smell of chlorine can be overwhelming at some indoor pools, but not this one. Also, the air temps in the indoor pool were a good 70 degrees, but not so much as to make it hot for the people who were not in the water. I would also recommend Mike's Galley for breakfast just south of the hotel.
