Couldn't give it 4 stars because it is better than that. 4 &3/4 stars probably. Been to WDW 80+ times and stayed in almost all of their properties. Perfect for us,57 dad,53 mom,23,17,15 daughters and 21 son. Was deluxe club room overlooking boardwalk. Classy property with easy access to Epcot (8 min walk) and Studios (14 min) walk. Take the boat to save your feet but not quicker. Fun atmosphere right out your balcony to watch . Wasn't too loud for us but we didn't go to bed early and had a fan for white noise.would be 5 stars if had quick serve restaurant in premises like Poly, Contemp, Grand Floridian, Port orleans, etc. Also bus picksup at dolphin and swan first to go to magic kingdom and was full before gettting to us. Maybe at a different time of year it would be better but days before new years was a hassel. Did manage to get on but always packed. Can't beat convenience of epcot from here though. Very festive place for new years time. This was our third straight year here. Loved it. If you can afford a few nights here you won't be sorry. Friendly doorman has been there every year, nice fellow.Also at night it is really beautiful with all the lights , boats coming and going , and old Bing Crosby type Christmas music playing throughout the hotel.Again.... we really like this place this time of year.
