We stayed in the Junior Suite, which gave us access to the Castle Club lounge. The room was spacious, with lots of windows and a large bathroom. We were not able to obtain a park view room, which would have been great for the fireworks. The advantage of the Castle Club is that you get a dedicated checkin/checkout, separate elevator to the park entrance, and meals at the lounge. Breakfast, while not lavish, was more than enough. Disney characters are always around, which was great for the kids. Lunch and dinner at Inventions restaurant was very good - a diverse selection of food, and also the characters would visit tables.
We opted for the full-board package, which is worth it, especially for convenience. We preferred our meals in the hotel because the other restaurants had long waiting times.
As other reviewers have noted, this hotel is indeed expensive. The key advantages for us (particularly the kids) were the closeness to the park (right at the main entrance), the characters, and the ambience of the hotel (castle design). The others hotel are easily a 15 minute walk (but closer to Walt Disney Studios). While you are allowed to enter the park 2 hours earlier (at 8am), the best rides are not open till 10am. Also, the VIP FastPass was not as useful as they made it to appear.
In general, the staff are friendly and helpful.
The main negative is that the hotel needs a renovation. Rooms and bathrooms show their age.
All in all, this hotel is worth it for the convenience and the Disney feel.
