Stayed 5 Jan for 5 nights booked with virgin holidays in a garden view room. Room overlooking lawn and boat dock on 5th floor (5076) twin queen beds - very clean and spacious. I have stayed at Hard Rock previously - pool view not worth it imo - and club level - also not worth it imo - garden view room fine. WE were also given complimentary internet access - hence I am writing review in room!! BONUS!!! Yes this hotel is expensive but you get what you pay for and this is the most convenient to the parks - easy 10 min walk or boat ride. Early access to Island of adventure for Harry Potter - we were first in queue for Olivanders!!
By 10.30 the queues were 2 hours - although the day before at 1.30 the queues were 30 mins so suggest you leave it until the afternoon to ride.
The Hotel is still in good condition - staff all very helpful and friendly - check in efficient - we don't use the parking as no need for car hire - taxis easier to get to malls - they no longer use yellow cabs at hotel - town cars which are more expensive but more luxurious. Had breakfast in The Kitchen once - fine - and rooms service a couple times - also fine - so no complaints at all and if I return to orlando would be my first choice.
