Our room was on the third floor, two doors down from the elevator. No issue with noise from other rooms. Five slept in our room comfortably, and we fit three mobility scooters comfortably. The walk-in shower was fantastic, and the complimentary body wash and shampoo were very good. I was concerned about how slippery the floor in the master bathroom was, but we had no mishaps. There was no shortage of towels so we placed a few on the floor to prevent slips. Restaurant, shopping, and housekeeping were excellent.

Hotel's Favorite
Our family of 5 (plus a dog) stayed in a Lion King suite and we were pleasantly surprised by the amount of room we had. Loved that we had two bathrooms! Rooms were clean and nicely decorated. Did not have maid service but there was a cart in the hallway with towels so it easy to get new ones. If you are on a budget this property works out very well. Skyliner was a great and fast option to get to Epcot and Hollywood Studios rather then taking a bus. Pros: Every employee during our whole stay was super friendly and went above and beyond. Loved the skyliner. We had no issues with the food. It was cafeteria food and there was a nice selection. Of course, it is Disney, so you are going to pay more. Don't complain - that is to be expected. Cons: Check in line was very long and they did not have a concierge or customer service representative to just ask a question. We had to pay to take a taxi to bring the dog to doggie day care every day. When we made a reservation we were told that we could take a free shuttle. Total stay spent over $200 shuttling the dog back and forth. Because we were upset about this we did get a complimentary taxi ride on the first day only. If travelling on a budget we highly recommend this property!

Hotel was okay for a value resort and we enjoyed our stay overall, but the bus service was AWFUL. We arrived at the bus stop out front over an hour before our breakfast reservations at Cinderella’s Royal Table (which were prepaid), and there were probably 300+ people in line. It wrapped through the queue and all the way past the main entrance. We had two disabled people in our party, and the wheelchair line was 10 deep. It wasn’t even at opening time either. Considering only two wheelchairs can load each bus, we were looking at arriving closer to lunch than breakfast. After waiting half an hour with no bus, my daughter social Ed teacher & mom of daughter w/autism & Chiari malformation) went to the front desk and was met with little concern - until she told them she was reporting them for not being prepared to deal with people with disabilities (and violating the ADA). Two managers in suits were quickly summoned and plans were hatched to call more buses and possibly get us a complimentary van. Within 5 minutes, FOUR Disney buses, two of which were doubles, pulled up and cleared the entire line in 15 minutes. It’s ridiculous that they didn’t care until they were worried about bad PR or legal issues. Both my daughters had to literally sprint to the castle with my granddaughter (in her arms the whole way) to sign in within our reservation window.

The hotel was clean. The food was a 3. Pizza & pancakes good, bacon too salty. My husband disliked his eggs. A little noisy during the dark, but no arguing or partying. Went back to the hotel for a nap & nearby housekeeping was noisy until I asked them to try to lower their voices. They did. The Pool Bar was fine but not enough variation for my husband. Nice staff but the luggage clerk gave incorrect information. A warning about the room door: since there is no balcony, there is no way to keep the door open w/o risking insects. My cellphone didn't work indoors, so I had to try to keep the door open w/my foot & it hit my 2nd shortest toe. After 11 days, it still hurts but is unbroken. I wish the doors wouldn't automatically lock w/o having to take out a card or key.

Basic clean hotel that Disney decorated a little bit to charge more. Stayed for a week in the cars area in a family suit with my husband and our two sons 2&4. The pool was good, good safety with plenty of lifeguards. Food court was okay, nothing great to eat. Expected Disney prices. No cleaning of the rooms but they did leave a linen cart in the hall everyday if you needed more. The transport to and from the parks via skyliner or bus was a hit or miss. About a 15 min ride either way to any park on top of a wait of 15 mins average and an hour or more after a fireworks show etc at busy times made this hotel for the price not worth it to us to stay again. For the amount of money they charge the hotel is just okay and the distance and transport to and from the parks is pretty bad. I much rather go to Disneyland stay in the Grand California Hotel for the price which has me literally an elevator ride down from the parks. Much more worth the price.

We stayed in a Little Mermaid room for 10 nights, we were in block 7 and found the walk to the lobby and skyliner fine. The themeing in the room was great and we had housekeeping every 2 days to change towels and empty bins and had a larger clean about halfway through our stay. The beds were really comfy and there was a coffee machine and small fridge in the room. We ate at the hotel restaurant Landscape of Flavours a few times and felt there was good choice. The hotel pools were great and our daughter enjoyed swimming in them, the lifeguards were constantly on watch and there were a number of them at each pool, we felt they kept the pools very safe. The only negatives we had was there is limited clothing storage in the bedroom - there are 3 small drawers in the main bedroom and a hanging rail in the bathroom area, we had to leave some items in the suitcase for our stay. The only other negative was we had a connecting door between us and the room next door, this allowed sound to travel and for our last couple of nights another family moved next door who were very loud, because of the door we could literally hear everything they said, if they had of been next door the full length of our stay we would have asked to move rooms. Otherwise we really enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay here again.

First time at Disney with the kids. I chose this resort because I wanted the most Disney themed one that we could afford. Unfortunately we couldn't afford a suite so we stayed in the Little Mermaid room. It was adorable. Just enough room to pack everything and be comfortable for the week. It was super clean, the beds were pretty comfortable. Some people talk about how far it is from the main lobby and it's true. We were in the furthest building away facing the back of the resort. The 1st day it doesn't seem so far but when you make the trip multiple times a day it becomes a lot. There are shuttle busses that take you to all of the parks and Disney Springs. We only used the Disney springs bus. We drove to magic kingdom and to animal kingdom as we wanted to make early entry. The skyliner was the highlight of the resort. It was clean, comfortable, quick And we ended up taking trips on it for fun on our rest days. The cafeteria had pretty good food. Lots of things to choose from such as pasta, pizza, pulled pork sandwiches, French fries etc. They also have refrigerated sections with desserts, salads, drinks, pretty much anything you can think of. They have the most beautiful mermaid cupcakes and they are delicious.The pools were clean and generally not too busy. The light cars were extremely attentive, I always felt safe. All in all I would definitely return to this resort but request a room not so far away from the activity hub.

Fab hotel! The theming was great. We had 3 adults sharing a lion king suite which was plenty big enough and the beds were all very comfy. The theming of the hotel is fantastic and the cable cars are so convenient. Plenty of vegan options at breakfast too.

My family stayed here back in September to celebrate my siblings birthdays and also attend the Not So Scary Halloween event. We had a wonderful time all the way around. Hotel, staff, events were spot on! Restaurant was busy each time we went, but they staff did a greta job of cleaning tables and directing people towards open tables. A shout out to the architect of the hotel. The suites are pretty cool and fit 6 people very comfortably PLUS they had two full baths. I know in today's world of staffing issues and workers failing to show up or doing a poor job – we saw none of this the entire weekend. Kudos to WDW. Keep up the good job.
