This Marriott property seems to have the most spacious rooms in the Village. The suites are actually like a suite unlike Fairfield's. It is very conveniently located to I-4, restaurants, shops, pharmacies, grocery, you name it! However, it is all located on a very busy road so I would not recommend anyone walking. It is only about a 5 minute drive to Downtown Disney and about 10-15 min drive to Epcot and Magic Kingdom. We love the walk-in beach style pool! And there is a great water play area for the kids.
I booked the Disney Marathon Package which was to include a fruit basket (was given a pre-cut cup of fruit, granola bar and gatorade) pasta dinner for two (which we had to go to the Courtyard to get and it was only within a certain time. So we had to leave the parks to go get it. The food was great but i requested it to go and the "dinner for two" was put into one box. It was penne pasta with some bread and two bottles of soda) and one way shuttle to the race start (This is my biggest negative to the package!! We were told the shuttle would pick us up at 3am for the race. I went to the lobby and NO ONE WAS DOWN THERE! Not even a receptionist. There was only a sign that said if you need anything call this number.... Which ended up being over at the Courtyard. So I walked over to the Courtyard where others were waiting for fear of being left and I'm so glad I did because he never stopped at Spring Hill or Fairfield. He finally arrived at 3:30 in a very nasty 15 passenger van that he had obviously just finished smoking in. We finally left at 3:45 and we were practically sitting on top of each other) With all that being said, yes, I was glad to not have to wake my family to take me to the start line as in previous years, but no, I would not book the package again. Nor would I stay here for a race. For you runners out there, they were only giving a late check-out of 12 noon. Anyone who has ran Disney knows that's impossible. I was granted 1:00 but you would have thought it was a huge deal because it was a hassle the next day too. If someone books the "marathon package" let them have a decent late check out!
Ask for a room on a high floor, pool side.
