We had one of the "moon" rooms (not as expensive as the themed rooms), but with beautiful attention to detail, and extra facilities.
Doors where pattened to look like space hatches, and things like mirrors also looked like portholes. LO had his own "chill area", which included a XBox 360 console, 2 games, and several more games pre-installed.
The hotel has 2 restaurants and 2 more can be accessed via the connecting walkway to the adjoining "Splash Landings" hotel. Splash Landings hotel also contains the waterpark. Splash Landings is also right next to the monorail station which takes you to the park entrance (it's about 10-15 min walk down, if you want to).
Staff were extremely friendly and helpful.
The price includes theme park, water park tickets & parking, so no need to add these on. Food is quite expensive (about £15-20 per head for adults for main + pudding). HUGE breakfast buffet with a wonderful choice (but the same choices each day).
We went over a bank holiday weekend (Easter), and evening shows & music were included.
We arrived Fri pm, dropped bags at reception, spent the afternoon in the waterpark. Bags where then delivered to our room. We then spent Sat & Sun in the theme park.
We will definetly go back again when LO is more than 1.4m (the height limit for the more scarier rides).
