Overall, this is a modestly priced and comfortable hotel. Actually I booked my room at SpringHills Suites, but they upgraded me to here and offered me complimentary breakfast, since I'm a MR Gold member. The breakfast buffet here is definitely better than the alternatives at SpringHills -- the freshly made omelettes are nice, but the other items in the buffet are very standard and average. The service is quite good.
My only word of caution is that the shuttle service does NOT go to all the Disney theme parks, as advertised, only to the Epcot with a very limited number of service (4 times in the morning on the hours: 8am, 9am, 10am, 11am) and 4 in the evening hours (7pm, 8pm, 9pm, 10:30pm). And, you *MUST* reserve at least 2 hours in advance and can only catch the one you reserve. You'll need to take the shuttles from Epcot to other parks. So, the shuttle services are not as convenient as it may sound on the website (same for SpringHills and Fairfield Inn in the same Marriott Village). If you miss the shuttle by 30 seconds, the only other alternative is to take the taxi (costing about $25-$30 depending on which park you go). Plan accordingly -- renting a car can be a better deal at the end. I caught only 1 day of shuttle and missed all others due to its terrible frequency! The taxi costs added up to be more than the car rental.
