Upon arrival we were greeted and checked in for a noon check in. At first we got a standard room but with 3 kids it was tight so the next day we upgraded to a one bedroom suite, sooo much better. Rooms were really nice and clean.
We only ate at oscars for breakfast,which was wonderful. Add we ate at harvest bistro which is a part of the hilton, it was great as well. We did eat pool side some day too. All the food was great.
Service is amazing. The pool staff really made our trip enjoyable, especially Kyle. He was wonderful! Anything we needed he was there. My kids really loved him, and as soon as we got home my kids said they missed him :-) he went above and beyond!
We did not do the parks, only a few character meals, we did take the shuttle to downtown which worked out perfectly for us.
It definitely has a resort feel, which my husband and I enjoy.
I was surprised that we didn't go to the hilton pool as much. I thought my kids would enjoy the lazy river and water slide, but they preferred the waldorf pool instead. Which was fine by us, the hilton pool seemed a bit louder and busier. The waldorf pool is very kid friendly. My kids were screaming and jumping in the pool.
Without a doubt we will return. I highly recommend it. The value is wonderful compared to staying on disney property. And the service is beyond wonderful. Remember you get what you pay for:)
