8/10 Very Good

Enjoyable stay but food and beverages exorbitant.
The Finding Nemo Suite was fun and comfortable. Be sure to keep an eye on the small frig- ours froze up, leaked and some food spoiled. Loved the pool and splash pad and the aerial ride to Hollywood Studios. The cafeteria food is just OK and wildly overpriced like all the food and beverages at Disney. The wait times for the rides at Magic Kingdom were reasonable but Hollywood Studios mismanaged theirs with 2 hour wait times because half of some of the rides were “under maintenance.” And the people with lightning passes just walked by the hundreds in line. Walt Disney would have disapproved of that policy and the employees we talked with did also. Overall, we- especially the 10 and 8 year old- enjoyed this vacation.

Overpriced and still no cleaning service
The hotel was fun and nice but no room cleaning every day? Just a "light" cleaning on every second day?? Come on Disney, the covid excuse is no longer acceptable. All hotels in the US and around the world are now back to regular cleanings, this is just an excuse to save money on employees. Unacceptable with a hotel with this price tag! (overpriced by the way, this is not worth the $650 they charge for the room. We were "lucky" to find a lower price but it normally goes for around 600-700 per night...
