We spent 6 days here and I have to say this is the best overall vacation/resort hotel we've ever stayed at in the USA (based on price, sevice, pool, room, etc). There are a few European hotels we've stayed at that I would rank higher, but that's really an unfair apples to oranges comparison. For a vacation in the US, this tops them all.
First, our check in was great. Jordan (I think) upgraded us to a higher room to see the fireworks, gave us breakfast vouchers since we had obviously taken a REALLY early flight to Orlando, and gave my daughter a little gift for her birthday. That's just the first five minutes!
The entire staff we interacted with...cleaning, bar, restaurant, consierge and especially pool...were all extemely professional and friendly. The shuttle to the Disney parks allowed us to avoid renting a car, and we never thought twice about it. The location of the property is so convenient to the parks.
The pool area is fantastic. There were always chairs available. Towels are always there for the taking. The lazy river is just AWESOME. Our 5 year old just loved it. (one note: the thing that makes the lazy river great is also something that parents should be aware of; the current is very strong. If you want to just swim, you need to move out of the current path. Otherwise, you and your child will struggle). There is also a slide which is always monitored by pool employees.
The rooms were extremely comfortable. Ours was quite a long way from the elevator, but so what?
We had 2 large conferences during the week. Other than some noise, it didn't effect us at all, other than closing the restaurants one night. (one evening in the lobby, the bar was the loudest I've ever heard. It must be the acoustics of the lobby; it sounded like a jet engine in there!)
So, overall, if you're taking your family to Disney and don't want to pay those insane Disney resort prices, this IS the only way to go!!
