I really wanted to stay at a Disney property while we visited for a week. After reading all the poor reviews of the WDW properties, I decided to stay at The Embassy Suites instead. I was really worried that we would miss out by not staying in the Disney complex. I am SO glad that I stayed here instead. We rented a car, so we were able to drive to whichever attraction we were doing that day (usually a 10 or 15 min. drive). We usually arrived back at the hotel after dinner, so it would have been a tremendous waste of money to stay at the Disney properties for 3-4 times the cost of this hotel. The lobby and rooms were very nice. Service was also very good. The breakfast wasn't to my liking (I eat very healthily and do not care for cheap food, which is what was featured on the breakfast buffet.) We just stuck to the fruit and oatmeal. Other patrons seemed to be enjoying the buffet and omelets, so I am sure most would think it was acceptable.
Even with the cost of a car rental and daily parking, we were money ahead (substantially) in the end. I would recommend staying here instead of the ridiculous price for Disney properties, which according to reviews, are no longer worth the splurge.More
