My sister-in-law is a Disney Vacation Club Member so I'm not sure how much my hotel room cost, but it was a beautiful room. When we were there, it was Aug 2012 so it hadn't been opened a whole year yet. There was still part of the resort that wasn't even opened yet.
My biggest pet peeve was when you go out to the pool, it was hard to find a place to sit. Now this is when the whole resort isn't even fully opened yet! Problem is, there are no cubbies or lockers out by the pool. People that are just going around the lazy river and not actually sitting in their chair, is taking up a spot with their towel. If they just put up cubbies, they could eliminate this problem.
Our room had a hillside view, but was nice to have the balcony when I woke up earlier than everyone else I could go out there and sit with my coffee.
Coffee maker, small fridge and microwave were in our room. We stopped at a grocery store for lunch meat and some basics. If you are trying to save money and buy your own food, I'd suggest bringing some single serve ketchup, mustard and mayo. You don't want to have to buy these for one serving.
Make sure your kids (or even adults) take the time do the Scavanger Hunt with the iPods (I don't remember the name of it). That was a blast!
We paid for the snorkeling, but none of us liked it very much so we only went in for about 10 minutes and we had paid for the unlimited (certainly a waste of money for us!).
On Tuesday, make sure you get out to the Starlit Hui early, there are alot of fun things for the kids to do but we didn't get out there early enough and they were beginning to close up the craft section.
Lots for the kids to do
Expensive food (a bagel was $6!)
Not enough chairs for everyone to sit at the pool.
