Just back from a 3 night/4 day stay in this hotel, traveled with my daughter, boyfriend and younger sister and while I thought it was okay, it definitely was not worth all the money spent on that hotel! Check-in was quick, when we arrived Pluto and goofy were about so my daughter got her picture with them and Pluto kept sneaking up on me and scaring me, all in the name of fun! We got our tickets straight away to head over to the parks but had been travelling all night so didn't really do anything, just went for a bit of a walk then headed back to the bar for some very over priced drinks. When we finally did get our room key, it didn't work so had to walk all the way down to reception to find out they had gave us the wrong room number (I don't know how) then go find our room. When we got there, there wasn't even a kettle and we were on the Admirals floor, and the view was terrible! We went for a little nap and got up about 5 to go get some food and go to the parks as they were open until 10 and when my daughter opened the door to go out she started shouting "mummy mummy look it's Mickey Mouse"... It was in fact an actual mouse just outside our door!, 5 floors up! I don't do well with mice so my boyfriend went out to try and chase it away and go down to complain and when he did they didn't do anything.
So then we proceeded to go on to get some dinner in Disney village which cost us over 40 euros for things we could get for less than 10 pound here at home! People were very ignorant and kept pushing my child out of their way, and she has only turned 3!
The queues in the parks were actually good! Never had to wait more than 10 minutes for anything except to go to meet Mickey Mouse but that could be expected! The parades and firework shows were amazing!
The walks to and from the parks are okay, but very tiring especially if you've been walking about all day and if its very cold and wet, and you do get sick of it after the first few times.
Also, on the 2nd day we had the 'do not disturb' sign up on our door as we didn't want the room cleaned because we had most of our stuff lying about the room as I was trying to get things sorted and while we were in there doing that one of the maids just walked on in, even though we had the sign up and was very snappy at us!
As I'd read previous reviews to go early for breakfast, I'd booked our time for 7:30 and never had to wait to be seated, we were always just taken straight in and there was a good selection of food for breakfast.
The bathroom was okay, limescale around the handle bar bit and also in the toilet, but always had hot water thank god!
All in all, I loved the holiday even if it was extremely cold, but at least it hardly rained. I would love to go back but it wouldn't be to this hotel, it's very over-priced for a very average hotel.
