A very nice weekend stay. We were over to do a couple of things around Disney for the holidays and there really wasn't anything to complain about. Upon check in we provided our Hilton Gold benefits which included breakfast. We were also put on the top floor and had a wonderful view of the the Disney parks in the distance. We managed to catch the fireworks from both Epcot and the Magic Kingdom and could even see the Dancing Lights at Hollywood Studios! The staff was always smiling and friendly any time we interacted with them.
Breakfast wasn't bad. A fairly basic buffet spread but it did it's job and filled us up for a long day in the parks. We didn't have any meals at any of the onsite restaurants though the menus looked pretty good. Parking seemed steep at $16/night. This always gets me especially when Disney hotels don't charge for parking. This on top of the $22 resort fee adds up to a nice little "surcharge" for staying at a non-Disney property. However, I guess it is made up for in the lower rates the hotel charges compares to Disney. We did not use the free shuttle so I can't comment on that. But the hotel is nicely located so that the drive to the parks was very easy.
In the end, the stay was very nice. And the pool and lazy river looked great. I'll have to try that the next time I am there.
