"Lower price with all the perks!"
The room was huge & clean with a great view of Cinderella's Castle & the pool/beach area was very nice. Included all the same perks that Disney resorts provide, such as extra magic hours & bus transportation to the parks, but at a much better price. Be warned...check out at the front desk & review your invoice before leaving! I didn't & ended up being charged for valet parking instead of self parking. After getting nowhere with customer service, it took 5 days of daily calls to the valet manager to finally get confirmation that they'd credit the difference, 4 days since then & still no credit.

"Meh resort on Disney propert"
The room was a time warp back to 1996. Which it was fun there were a lot of problems. 1. Not many outlets. 2. Throw back in room decor 3. Poor water pressure in the toilet and shower. 4. Tons of hidden fees. It's the only disney hotel that charges you for parking. Plus a $27 resort fee. The best parts were - the lobby and the bed! Very pretty lobby. The bed was a dream!! Also, not many children around because it's more of a business hotel.

"Excellent place for couples!"
Excellent place to stay for couples!! A grown up escape while still having easy access to Disney parks. We love Epcot and being able to walk there from the hotel (or take the boat) was amazing. We loved the pool bar, and thought the food there was actually better than a lot of the expensive places we ate at during our stay. The only negative experience we had was one evening hanging out by the pool- we asked one of the attendants if we could have the bean bags for the corn hole game, and the girl said sure it shouldn't be a problem. Then her rude boss came over and bluntly stated that the area was closing at 9 (it was 8:40pm) and that we couldn't have the bags to play the game. Normally this wouldn't bother me, but her snide attitude really annoyed me. Not to mention, I spent a good amount on the room, as well as an addition $800 that I charged to the room during our visit. You think that the pool manager would be able to extend a little extra courtesy to hotel guests and let us have the bags for 20 minutes instead of rushing to clean up. We obviously weren't 12 year old kids trying to steal the bean bags. It's a shame because we really loved everything else about the hotel, but next time we might try a different resort that extends more courtesy to their adult guests.

"Teenage Employees Run the Pool"
Rooms are a little old. Noisy air conditioner and scratched up tile in the older bathrooms. Location is great. Make note of Resort Fee and Daily Parking fee when comparing prices. They have a beautiful pool - however, they've hired teenagers to BLAST music and scream over the microphone. Also - they don't hire life guards which is surprising. If you're looking to relax - be warned - the pool is not relaxing because of this very annoying "customer program." Probably will not return because of the noise factor at the pool.

"A great fun family time"
My room was far from what I expected for a Deluxe Resort, however the service was great and the pillow top bed was heavenly. There are plenty of activities to enjoy . Take a walk around the boardwalk in the evening. It's an absolutely amazing view and you can even roast marshmallows right across the way from WDW Beach Club Resort.

"Great Dining, POOR maintenance !"
Resort was nice and dining options were amazing. Check in was slower than it should have been as my first 2 rooms were not available somehow. My main disappointment was how old the rooms appeared and general maintenance issues. Tub caulking was rusty colored and cracked/missed. Dirty tiles in bathroom. Door closer for balcony completely ripped off mount. Spiderwebs all over balcony. This was supposed to be a staycation at a nicer than most resort but ended up feeling like a stay in a Motel 6 room.

"Watch out for extra costs"
Had a great holiday, however all the extra costs at the hotel from parking, resort fees and no transport from airport. Once you get over that the place is great they say they are Disney? the only thing that is. Is the store, Disney doesn't charge extra than the price they give you at the start.

"Great budget option for Disney World"
This is a great option if you are looking to do Disney World on a budget but still get the full Disney experience. It includes almost all the extra perks of staying at a WDW resort hotel. Early magic hours, transportation to the parks, etc. The one thing they do not have is the free transportation from MCO airport to their hotel. You will have to pay extra for that. Overall though, a nice hotel that will give you a little more bang for your buck than WDW owned hotels. Staff was friendly and very willing to help accommodate us for late check out on our last day.

"Just OK. Not worth the money."
This isn't a resort. It's an Okay hotel. It has a decent pool area but lacks enough lounges and they were frequently out of towels. If you want a lounge get down early. Only one time did anyone come around and ask if we needed drinks. (Those are $10.00 each btw). The room was clean enough but by 3:30 still no housekeeper. Had to call (and wIt 5 mins on hold) to request one. They did send one within 30 mins. You just get this feels by that the place isn't very well run. Disney is all about guest experience and this place falls well short of that. Next time I would stay in a property actually owned and run by Disney. This hotel is Starwood , which is normally great. Just not this time for us.

"Over priced."
Room and hallway smelled. Room in need of updating. Floors very dirty. I did not take my shoe off until I got into bed. Pre purchased the room with Expedia, the low price I paid was the beginning. The hotel charged $18 a night for SELF parking PLUS a $43 internet charge which I did not want, but the manager said it is mandatory.

We didn't spend much time at the hotel during the day since we were visiting 3 parks daily on average. But we did have breakfast and dinner at the buffetria. The food was good for what it was but I felt it was priced a little high. It was nice having the buffeteria open 24hrs as we often got back passed midnight from the parks.

I was charged for parking.... Did not have a car to park(for three days), no apology a hassle to wait in line to get it reversed. Comforter on second bed was dirty. Phone in our room only worked on speaker, took a day to figure that out. Did not like being charged a service fee at Picabu 24 hour self serve... Charged 8.34 for serving myself... Do not like hidden costs asked about it, still was charged for serving/grabbing salads. Shulas steak House ...excellent, do it, wonderful food worth every overpriced penny:)

"Musty smelling, old and small room"
The room seemed old and small and the furniture was very oddly positioned. The room looked like it hadn't been updated In 20 years. The TV was on the dresser, which was positioned along the left side of the bed, making it akward to watch TV and get out of bed. There wasn't a lot of room to walk between the dresser and the bed. The bathroom was very tiny, with the door very close to the toilet. Housekeeping didn't replenish the soap or plastic cups at all and rarely the shampoo. It took housekeeping over an hour and a second phone call to bring requested pillows when we were told it would only take 20 minutes.

Got this hotel at the last minute at a very good price. On our past visits we stayed at the Beach club. I would say the rooms are on par with the Beach club at a much lower price.

"Our first trip to Disney"
This was our first trip to disney, we would stay in this hotel again. There was one day that one of our rooms wasn't cleaned, we were more worried about having towels than the room being cleaned, we got towels and we were fine. In my opinion it is very hard to find the pool! We walked forever and asked 4 different people for directions before we were finally able to find it! Some signage would have helped!
