Took the wife, kids (6 & 9 yrs. Old), and in-laws to Disney for the week. We stayed at another resort for a week but needed a place for an additional day before flying out the following morning. I booked this resort mainly for the pools and it did not disappoint. I requested an early check in as we needed to be out of our current resort by 10 AM. The normal check in is 4 PM. The girl at the desk was absolutely wonderful and while our back to back rooms were not ready at 10:45 when we arrived, she was able to get us two rooms on the same floor across the hall from each other. Instead of waiting for our original rooms to become available, we took these. The rooms were clean, beds extremely comfortable. The only oddity of the room is the half shower door and the single door that slides for the bathroom and closet. It really is no big deal and my kids thought it was really neat, however, this might annoy some travelers. The pools are spectacular. They have both a heated pool (was 89') and a non heated pool (was 75') along with 2 hot tubs, a slide, suspended bridge, rock wall, bikes, paddle boats, and a huge work out room that would put some clubs to shame. The staff were excellent and we never had a problem getting food or drinks while at the pools.
