Outstanding room and themes. We stayed in the Finding Nemo suite and can't say enough about how pleased we were with the room. Beautiful colors, plenty of space and we had a lovely view of the serene lake.
The pool was fabulous and each area was themed and very interesting to look at. Some of the best Disney theming I've seen anywhere.
It's price range makes it affordable, though more expensive than the other value resorts, if it had a couple of good restaurants it would surely be a luxury resort.
The downside if there is one is the food court which is nightmarish at best.
Why anyone would think this set up is good is beyond me. If you read any of my other reviews, you'll learn I detest lining up only to line up again. Well, this takes it to a whole new level of stupidity. You line up to order your meal, but if your family isn't all enjoying the same thing, you have to line up at different stations, then you line up to pay at a separate counter.
Whilst your food goes cold, or better yet in my second attempt, the ice cream completely melts and you refuse to pay for it.
That's grade A stupid.
But I won't let an onsite restaurant detract from what was a wonderful place to stay. Worth staying here for sure, just eat elsewhere.
