The Gaylord is a massive and gorgeous property located a short drive from Disney. I was there for a trade show and got to experience their ample convention space as well as their amenities. Dining choices were excellent from coffee at Java Coast to great steak and seafood at Old Hickory Steakhouse. Make sure to ask for Guy at the Old Hickory Bar.
The different theme areas were simply amazing. While I didn't have time to enjoy the pool, it was vast and had separate areas for kids and adults. Service was excellent throughout and my room was very comfortable. The only negative would be the thinness of the walls. I could hear my neighbor as if she was in my room. And once her kid arrived, I got a nice, unexpected 7 a.m. "I'm hungry" wakeup call from next door.
That said, the only time you're really in the room at the Gaylord is to sleep. There is so much to do in the property alone to take up a weekend trip. I plan on going back with the family.
