We spent 7 nights here. When we pulled up, it was very busy but everyone was incredibly helpful in unpacking the car for us. I don't understand why everyone complains about the parking...it's a little walk but nothing out of the ordinary. There was a long line when we checked in but it moved quickly and Alex was just great. Our room we booked wasn't available so he immediately upgraded us to the 23rd floor! Everyone also complains about the resort fees...it's Orlando. Every single hotel charges a fee. If you don't like it, don't stay in Orlando.
The room was amazing. Perfect views of Downtown Disney and we could see the fireworks at night. We didn't have a balcony but it wasn't an issue. I particularly loved the location. Walking to Marketplace and we never had an issue with the busses to the parks. We also ate at Avu Avu. Amazing dinner and Frances, our server, was probably one of the best waitresses I have ever had. The pool was beautiful with plenty of deck chairs and a great bar.
Overall, I will absolutely be back. 7 nights is a long time for a resort to screw something up and every day was better than the last. The food was overpriced but I had the $100 credit so it was covered. And it's Disney. So I expect it. Stay here!!
