we are a family of 4 with kids of 7 and 5 y.o. we booked the suite which accommodates up to 6 pax using the Friends and Family rate. the only reason i booked Hotel Indigo is because it was fairly new (newly renovated) and it says that its a few minutes walk from Disney Main Gate. i was quite hesitant since it only shows 3-star class rating and since this was a long-planned vacation, i wanted it to be extra special and even considered booking the Disney Resort hotels. good things i did not coz we saved a lot by booking this hotel
The room was on the second floor. it was big and spacious and clean. modern decorations and the location was around 15 minutes walk from Disney Main gate. we walked several times, we also tried taking a cab once during park closing hours, it took us quite some time to find a cab though. we also tried taking a shuttle which took even longer because it went around the whole complex. we also tried taking our car and parking it, the parking area is already quite a walk from the park, thus, the best way is really to just walk from the hotel.
this hotel is right next to the Garden Walk which had lots of restaurants. it was also beside a Cheesecake Factory restaurant. there is also several 7-11 outlets across the street and since my daughter is very particular with taking Asian food, there was this chinese restaurant beside the hotel that we usually order and bring into the park.
i highly recommend this hotel. i would give it 5 stars if only it was a bit closer to the Main Gate. i don't mind walking from the hotel to the resort, but to walk from the resort back to the hotel when the kids are tired and sleepy was quite an ordeal.
