We stayed at the Blue Heron from April 24th thru may 1st. The staff was friendly and helpful, they even gave us a late check out. They had shuttles to the main transportation center at Epcot. The return shuttles drop people off at other hotels, so allow extra time to return. Our room was a 2 bedroom condo with a king size bed in 1 room, 2 twins in the other room, 2 balconies, a kitchenette, sleeper sofa, and bunk beds. I slept on the king bed which was comfortable and the whirlpool tub cane in handy after spending all day at the parks. The condo was over 1300 sq. Feet and was so spacious considering it slept 8 of us comfortably. We stayed in tower 1 to 310. The condo itself was upto date with some pineapple and palm decor. We hit up the dollar tree for snacks and food which was conveniently located within walking distance from our hotel. There was also a Dunkin donuts, Cicis pizza, and a gift shop in the same strip. We rented a car and drove to the magic kingdom one of the days which was am ready drive from the blue Heron. There are 3 pools here as well. The main pool, a kiddie pool, another small pool (someone told me it was filled with salt water), and a hot tub. Kikis tiki bar had beer and wine and they are trying to get liquor again, which wasn't a big problem for me and the bartender Linda was so sweet and easy to talk to. I loved staying here. The washer/dryer came in super handy and the hotels location is great! I would definitely stay here again and would recommend this establishment to anyone that wants the biggest bang for their buck! We don't have anything bad to say about this place! I think my mom wants to live their permanently! Lol! The staff was awesome from the front desk to the shuttle drivers. No regrets!
