It's a totally unique experience staying at Portofino. Its close proximity to the parks, the Express Line Pass, and pampering service make it the perfect choice. The food is fabulous. And the hotel is breathtaking, especially at night.More

The deluxe queen is awesome. We always stay in either a deluxe queen or spring for the club room, which is the same room but with club access. The rooms are huge.
