Shivas restaurant was excellent. All staff was very friendly and helpful
Beds and pillows were too hard. Room was very basic and seemed more like a room in an economy hotel. Nobody likes the avalanche of fees that drop on you as you leave.
Location! We were going for the food and wine festival at Epcot!
I enjoyed the pool and the front cafe.
More options for food at later hours. I didn’t have anything to eat because their late night options were closed.
We enjoyed the pools!
It would have been better if the swan paddle boats were more available. During our trip, they were frequently unavailable for use “due to weather”, though there were some boats already out in the water.
Prices a bit steep for food and drinks. Example: coffee/lattes that cost more than Starbucks?
So close to attractions and transportation to theme parks
The pool was amazing! And the location too!
A little more affordable!
Resort access to Epcot.
First floor dining options are tucked away in hard to find spots. Not well designed.
Room service breakfast was good. The restaurants on site are very nice. Various activities for kids- s’mores by the beach, sports etc was a lot of fun!
Check out time is 11am, they dint accommodate late checkout
The staff was down to earth and friendly especially the woman who checked me in. She was amazing!!
Everything was perfect.

And figures Crossed that our health is not affected
