I checked in after two nights at a "golf resort" for a conference (never understood a golf resort when we go back to back for two days). Anyway I checked out of that resort and went down to the Hilton because of price and location. They gave me several upgrades when I checked in that I enjoyed (actually arranged online when booking but confirmed when checking in). I have stayed at numerous Hilton hotels and they always on point for what I am looking for. They pay attention to staff issues, bedding, and general comfort.
My wife had encouraged me to stay here on this trip because of the location to Disney (we are annual passholders). I am happy to report that I took a bus to Epcot and found the time over and back to be the same as we have experienced at Port Orleans and Old Key West. It is right next to Downtown Disney that would have been fun if my family had been with me. My wife was worried that it would be either too formal or too kiddsy (don't think that is a word but) I found it to be a good balance between business casual and child friendly.
I think if you can get the price right this would make an excellent family vacation hotel. I also thought it would have been a great place for a conference. I will be encouraging my group to consider it next year. Only negative was I had to pay for parking, which I didn't see when booking. It was nearly a 8% increase in price (I said I got a good rate:).
