We spent 3 nights at the Waldorf and it was a truely amazing hotel. We traveled with our children, ages 4 and 8 and used this hotel while going around the parks. Upon arrival, there were numerous bellman available, check in was fast and they had a room for us well before check in time. They have more than ample staff available to help with anything you may need. Service--was truely great.
The room-was a wonder. They don't miss a beat with the high end fixtures, lovely marble floors, drapery and fine linens. We had both a tub and shower in the very large bathroom and two very comfortable beds. They came in for turn down service daily.
The room service was great as well. We ordered it New Years Eve at 11 pm and it was delivered within 30 minutes. They offer a selection of children's items on the room service menu as well.
The daily buffet breakfast at Oscar's had a lot of choices. Omeletes, breads, cereals, meats, cheeses, freshly squeezed oj---very complete and tasty. It was $24 per adult and $12 per child. Since there is no where else to eat near by--we ate here every morning. It was great but pricey.
We noticed a lot of children around the hotel and the staff was very accomodating to the kids. Event though the hotel is very upscale, there were a lot of families with young children staying there.
The shuttle to and from the Disney parks loads up first next door at the Hilton-where there are 1000 rooms--and we were told that on busy days the bus may already be full when it arrives at the Waldorf. We went to Universal and Sea World and the buses do not go to those locations so we took a town car there and a Mears cab back--the ride back in the Mears taxi was always less.
Overall, we loved this hotel. The pool looks amazing (it was too cold to swim during our trip )and next door at the Hilton (which is connected to the Waldorf) there is a lazy river, an even larger pool with a water slide that you can access when staying at the Waldorf.
We heard that they are keeping prices low for now while they get everything perfect. I would suggest, if you like classy hotels and great service and the price is right, pick this one!
