At first glance the hotel seems good enough. It appeared clean. We only stayed one night, thank God that’s all we needed because our flight had been canceled. Our room was infested with roaches. We were in building A, on the 6th floor. There were roaches of all stages from baby

Beautiful lobby, pool and facilities, comfy beds, exceptionally clean. This resort hotel was only about 5 minutes away from Disney World. Figuring out exactly how to get to it on the busy SR535 was a challenge, but OK once we knew what to do. It was nice to have Applebee’s

Lobby was nicely done. The room was quite a let down. It was over the trash dumpster and loud. It looked like a room from a dessert highway in 1972. Clean, but very outdated. Beds were on metal riders that sounded like empty beer kegs.

Hi there! The schedule for the shuttle will come out at the end of this month when we receive Disney's final schedule for the first 15 days. The resort fee does include self parking as well so that is not an extra change. We do have a guest services desk here in the lobby that can provide you with tickets, some options allow a discount depending on your choice of tickets. Thank you! Keith D.

We are about 15-20 minutes away depending on traffic. Most of the trip there is on Disney property.

The shuttles are scheduled and the schedule changes monthly. Walking to Disney Springs can be done but is just about a mile and there are several busy intersections, we definitely recommend a taxi. The shuttle typically firts leaves at 8 am , then a bit after 9 and then closer to 11am and two other times that do change.

Hi Pete, We are about a mile from Disney Springs but one must cross several intersections to get there so we do recommend driving or taxi as the parking is free there. You are able to request for shuttle with wheelchair access and the company requests that you notify them before hand. The guest service desk can help with this as well as they say they have a limit of two wheelchairs per shuttle. Thank you!

"Near to the parks"
"Pool view seemed nicer than our view but was not a priority for us"
"Depending on room availability ask for rooms on the left side (Applebees). Otherwise you will be overlooking the parking area."
"Get a room with a balcony with a view of the pool."
"Suggest staying on room away from pool as it is a family resort and as expected pool noise level greater in rooms closer to the pool."
US$105 - US$197 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
