Let's get this straight - this is not a 5* super deluxe property. It is a reasonably comfortable hotel in Orlando that perhaps needs a little TLC in places. You're not going to get 3* Michelin food for breakfast at the buffet, what is there is good enough.
The downsides have been mentioned - the drapes do not cover the windows fully/easily at the front and it's easy to peek around the edges. I always travel with Duck tape and this solves the problem. The room decor could do with an upgrade and the sofa-bed was not the best in the world for comfort. Luckily my kids were worn out from the parks. Food in the in-house restaurant is not that good.
The good - early start at breakfast is easy and gets you out for the Parks in good time. Rent a car - do not rely on shuttle busses - they will eat into your valuable vacation time.
The pools are good, but unsupervised, so beware of rowdy kids.
Free booze at the Manager's reception - what can be wrong with that? Have an early start then head back for drinks while the crowds get wet in the storms. Then out to eat - plenty of places a simple stroll away.
All in all a good stop for a family vacation - good to have the extra space to park the kids and a room for the parents.
