First I want to say the staff were great during our 2 night visit. I had considered this location last year before the renovations but had opted to stay at Hilton Bonnet Creek. I think the renovations are awesome and I love all the room you have for a family. I would definitely choose this property vs the Hilton a few hotels down or Hilton Bonnet Creek in the area. We have stayed at all.
Beds are great. I love the way the rooms look. For the price the rooms are an excellent value. We used it as a base for Disney and didn't get a chance to use any facilities except the restaurant for breakfast. It was decent.
I only had one issue and that is the transportation. On our first night we tried to take a bus back to hotel from Hollywood Studios. Our bus didn't come after 45 minutes. This was not at a busy time. Instead the Mears rep told us to get on a bus for some different Downtown Disney hotels and they would drop us off. They crammed us on. Too many people! It was beyond crazy. My son wasn't tall enough to reach up and hold onto anything. So he held onto me. Our driver didn't take in consideration the massive amount of people and took turns like he was driving a car. I lost my balance once and twisted my ankle trying not to fall on top of the people sitting down.
I have stayed at other Disney properties and more than once have rode a bus standing up during busy times. So I was ok with standing up. But they had way too many people on the bus. In addition the bus avoids the main strip due to construction so we had many turns. We held on and it took everything I had to keep upright. From that point on I paid to drive and park at the parks (which is now $17 a day).
I do think it is the best place to stay in Downtown Disney, especially with all the extra room.
