We stayed on the 3rd floor of building 9 (Toy Story) June 15-22, 2013. Our side backed to a wooded area. It was very quiet, yet still a convenient 3 min walk to the pool and cafeteria. It is a small but functional room and because we pulled 10-12 hour days at the theme parks, we were only in the room to sleep!
Customer service was outstanding! All of the staff from front-desk to cafeteria to gift shop were very friendly and helpful.
Suggestions to make your stay more magical:
1. do the on-line check-in at their website, you can specify building/floor and other preferences. It took less than 5 min to check in that way and we got a great location.
2. bring an over the door shoe holder with the clear plastic pockets. There is very little counter space and you can keep your toiletries organized.
3. bring a travel sized pouch of laundry detergent and get some quarters. They have on-site laundry next to the little playground. We packed enough clothes for 3 days and did laundry mid-week. Our family of 3 was able to travel with only 1 carry-on each!
4. If you are going in the summer months, bring a towel keep it covered to protect from the daily thunderstorm (it will help keep you from looking/feeling a hot mess!).
5. Be realistic and be patient...this is a Disney resort, it will be crowded, there will be children running amuck, there will likely be muck from children, it's Florida weather...relax and have a great time!
