As we had done Disney five years ago and stayed in one of the official hotels we were looking for a different angle this year, better restaurant choice etc. We chose this hotel because of its location, although at only £374.44 for two weeks via alpharooms.com the price certainly swayed our decision. The hotel itself was excellent, always clean and tidy, staff very pleasant, polite and eager to assist any problems we may have. In reality our only problem was the toilet blocked once and it was sorted within twenty minutes. The rooms are ok, everything you expect from a fairly modern hotel. Two large double beds, table and chairs, armchair, fridge, microwave, coffee maker (coffee supplied), vanity unit, enough drawers and wardrobe space for all four of us and the essential TV for night viewing when all parked out! Bathroom was pretty standard too, shower over bath nice and hot, sink, mirror etc. The room also has a second sink in the bedroom section, just right for me to shave in while the girls got ready. Towels were changed every day along with all shampoos etc. Towels were also provided poolside and in the gym if you wished to use them. Pool isnt up to much but we never found time to use it, you can apparantly use the larger one in the Sheraton hotel next door. Gym looked ok but in Florida heat looking was enough for me!
Breakfast was included in the price and was adequate if a little tedious by the end of the holiday. Tea, coffee, hot chocolate, milk, juices, cereals, toast, waffles, yoghurt, croissants, pastries, apples,oranges, bagels, porridge. Seemed like a good choice on day one but it never changed. Tea and coffee is available free in reception 24 hours along with freshly baked cookies late afternoon, these are really really nice! Oh, and dont forget to take a handful of the free sweets each day to suck while standing in the lines!!!!!!
Bus service was available to Epcot at 8am and 10am (might be a 12 noon one) and returned from Epcot at 6pm,8pm and 10pm. Although this sounds a little limited it works really well as you can use the Disney busses to park hop from Epcot. If you catch the 8am bus you will nearly always get to the parks just as they open. In our two weeks the bus was only really late once, however when we complained at reception a car was called and we were taken to the park of our choice, we ended up arriving before we would have if the bus was on time! Getting back can be a bit awkward at times if you want to catch all of the firework displays. We ended up catching disney transport to one of their resorts, connecting to downtown disney then either walking or using taxis ($10 inc tip). It was actually quite nice to see not only the Disney hotel we had previously stopped at but others too. Transferring this way also allows you to experience Disneys monorail and boat shuttle services. The only park you will struggle to get to is Typhoon Lagoon as Disney only transport to this park via one of their resorts.So it means a trip to Epcot, then a resort, then the park. Alternatively catch a cab for $14, the hotel will arrange this for you. There is a large outlet mall nearby and the hotel does run a free bus shuttle daily, however it picks up midday (ish) so we were never around to take advantage of this.
We chose this hotel for its location to restaurants. Within a 1 mile (15-20 minute) stroll to Downtown Disney you pass Shoneys, Sizzler, Pizza Hut, Chinese Buffet, Joes Crab Shack, Chevys, Buffalo wing bar (my favourite, although stay away from the Blazin' sauce!), Macs (of course), TGI fridays, Burger King and several others i cant remember, but all tastes are well covered. Also close to Subway if you fancy a quick bite and 7/11 for petrol (gas) and late night snax. If you are trying to avoid paying Disneys high prices then there are several large gift shops nearby too.
We had a fabulous time staying here, plenty of restaurant choice, good service, good facilities and within walking distance of downtown disney. We would recommend this hotel wholeheartedly and would certainly stay there again should we return to Florida.
