We stayed here the second week of April for my kids' first visit to Disney. We liked the resturant, fitness room, and loved the ice cream shop and 24hr market. You will get fleeced at the market, but it's worth it, being able to get a late night snack for the kids after getting back from the parks. The rooms were non-descript; just very average. The hotel is located close to downtown Disney, but I don't know about walking distance. It's got to be a couple miles. I certainly wasn't tooling around on foot with my 4 & 5 year olds in that traffic. Now, there are regular shuttles everywhere and that is great. However, the shuttle busses stop at like 4-5 hotels picking people up. We went during an alleged "slow" Disney period, and those busses still got crowded; as in standing room only. Plus, if you use the shuttle, add anywhere from 10 minutes to over an hour for the commute. It takes forever to stop at all those hotels and then get to the parks - especially Magic Kingdom. After you get off the bus there, you have to take a tram or ferry to the park. You also have to time your departures to and from the park to the shuttle schedule. It's every half hour, but if you just miss a shuttle, thats another 1/2 hour you are waiting around. By the end of our trip, I just started driving to the parks and paid the additional parking charge. In conclusion, the hotel was nice overall, but there are many better hotel values out there for a Disney Trip.
