My friends and I traveled to Orlando to go to Disney World in celebration of our graduation from high school. It was out first time traveling alone, and we were a group of two eighteen year olds and three seventeen year olds. We all shared one room to keep the cost low, and five nights with continental breakfast and a rollaway bed for the room came out to $441 and change. This was really a great price for the hotel.
My friends and I spent our entire first day in the hotel, since we got in at 3:00 in the afternoon and didn't want to spend money on a park ticket for the day. The resort was completely empty, since we arrived June 10, which was the middle of the week and I suppose most schools hadn't gotten out for summer yet. Plus most people who stay there probably spend the entire day at the Disney parks. We ate lunch in the hotel deli, which wasn't bad, and then had the pool near our room to ourselves. We then went to dinner in the hotel restaurant, which was okay, played pool and toyed with the jukebox and then we went up to sleep. It was a nice enough experience. The hotel seemed a bit understaffed (there was one guy running the souvenir shop and the deli) but I assume that had to do with the fact that it was the off season.
Overall we had a positive experience. The rooms weren't extravagant but it was enough for us since we really only slept there. We did have a problem with the water on the second night. There were five girls sharing a shower and by the time my last friend went in the water shut off halfway through and didn't come back on until 4am. It was only that one night though, and we had no other problems with the water. Every time we asked for things like extra towels or pillows the staff brought them up in under fifteen minutes. We used the shuttles a few times. It was fairly reliable but for the most part we chose to shell out the extra $5 a day each for a cab since it allowed us more freedom. We were able to call a car easily from the front desk every morning. It was definitely a nice enough hotel for the price we payed and I'd recommend it to anyone else vacationing on a budget.
