We arrived after a long flight from the UK, We checked onto the Disney Express at the airport, which was a brilliant start to our holiday. After a bit we were dropped off at the hotel to be greeted by wonderful staff, very friendly and attentive. We were here for two weeks.
We didn't realise till later, but the check in guy managed to mess up our Disney passes, however, the staff in Disney Magic Kingdom (our first park of the holiday) sorted it all out after a few calls etc, a massive thank you to them.
Rooms were lovely, ours was in Alligator Bayou, so themed to suit. Temp was always good.
Didn't actually sit in the bar, but they were supplied with nightly entertainment in the good old Orleans way, and were always in full voice, having a fabulous time.
The restaurant was very simple once you did the original reccy on our first day. Portions always huge, but good fresh food made to order, so be prepared for a little delay, all self serve - but not buffet style.
Travel to and fro to the parks was very easy, either via the Disney buses, or to Downtown Disney via the river taxi.
Overall, it was a lovely place to come back to at the end of a very exciting and tiring day in the parks, would recommend to both couples and families.
