We went to DisneyWorld Mid May 2013 with friends. We booked our trips separately but requested our rooms be close to each other. Disney did not disappoint and had us in adjoining rooms. We were in The Little Mermaid section, on the ground floor facing the pool. We were concerned at first but realized that being a "family friendly" hotel, all people were asleep by 10:00 pm so there was no noise to be concerned about. The beds were extremely comfortable. After reading other reviews, we brought our own pillows, but found out that the complaints of the beding seemed to be overstated. The variety of pools was great and the cafeteria was good. The resort gift shop was huge. We brought our running shoes and ran around Hour Glass Lake a couple of times. It was great to be able to go over to Pop Century to have a look around that resort as well. The staff was helpful and accommodating. The rooms were very clean, the pools were fun but had plenty of chlorine. The decore of the resort was great and made you feel like you were part of the movies. The resort seems to be reasonably centrally located so the travel between the parks seemed fast and easy. The transit system was reliable and easy. Thank you for allowing us to have a wonderful vacation with great friends.
