We were VERY happy with the Hilton Disney World. My husband and I stayed for 3 nights and spent 2 days at the Disney parks. The bus service was great, we were the 2nd stop for pickup AND dropoff, so we always got a seat and it was a quick ride. The bus was reliable except for the last night - we did the Extra Magic Hours at Magic Kingdom until 1am and waited until almost 2am for the bus. I thought the "walking distance" to Downtown Disney attractions was a bit FAR for someone who spent all day walking around Disney parks. There is a bus that will take you there too so it's really not a problem. And once you get to the parks, you can take any of the Disney buses or monorail to the other parks. It's all very convenient!
The room was nice, well decorated, clean, comfy bed, and was pretty quiet. The only noise problems we had was our next door neighbor- she felt it was more important for her husband to sleep than the rest of the hotel, so every time her baby cried, she took him out in the hall. Otherwise, it was a quiet hotel. The pools were nice - although I thought there was supposed to be an adult pool, and there were little ones in all of them. Concierge was very helpful. Self parking was free and plentiful, although a bit of a walk to the hotel as valet gets the best spots, naturally. You can buy tickets to the park in the lobby, and it was the same price as I paid in advance on -------, and even worse, I had to wait in line to pick up the tickets at Will Call.
Food was good and convenient - we got late night room service one night, which was actually decently priced. There is a nice bar with lots of TVs for sports, pool tables, etc. Also there is a bakery/coffee shop open 24 hrs with Starbucks. It was very nice to hop in the AM, grab a coffee and muffin, and go wait for the bus. There is also a Benihana and Fins (seafood) on property, but we ate at Epcot every other night as the food there was fabulous (Italy and Japan have the best food!) and we had park hopper passes.
All in all - I was very happy with our choice. I was worried that we should have stayed at an official Disney resort, but this was JUST as convenient. Plus you still got the Extra Magic Hours like the Disney resorts. And thanks to a -------- online deal, we got a GREAT price too. I would definitely return to this hotel.
