    Great hotel in a great location

    The entire staff was extremely friendly, helpful and courteous. The cleaning service made my daughter’s blanket into a bow and stacked my son’s stuffed animals into a scene on the bed. They also folded the tissue into a rose. Really awesome! The bell service was also super friendly. The accommodations were clean and nice. The location is awesome, between Epcot and Hollywood Studios. The boat service is a nice touch to provide another wonderful experience for my kids.

    It’s a Starwood hotel, so you won’t get the “Disney” room experience and the rooms were a little smaller than expected. The hotel holds a lot of conventions, so it’s pretty crowded.

    This is a very well appointed resort with all the amenities you would need. There is easy transportation to the Disney parks, either by shuttle bus or by ferry. Also, it is worth noting that the extended hours to get into animal kingdom early by staying at a Disney park it’s very well worth it to get to the Pandora attractions early without having to wait an extremely long lines. I would definitely stay here again.

    I stayed in this hotel for a conference. While the conference facilities were good, the layout is a little bit confusing and after several days I still kept finding myself getting lost. I think the signage could be a little better as well.

    We will be back for sure.

    The boardwalk area, the pool, the easy transportation to the parks... all made for a fantastic trip.

    Our room was too far from pool.

    Close to Epcot. Need monorail transportation to other facilities. Room needed magnified mirror in bathroom not out at coffee bar area. Bathroom needed exhaust fan. Elevators were quick which was a plus.

    Best value of all Disney Resorts!

    The location can’t be beat! The amenities are outstanding as well! My husband and I and our adult children choose this hotel over any of the others because of the price, location and quality.

    Vale

    The valet is horrible. Never answer phone, overpriced and not friendly. They should work with another company. Other than that an amazing stay and resort.
