We stayed here while visiting the area to go to Disney World. The resort is in a great location for all the parks. It is right off the interstate for easy access. We reserved two rooms. One room had two queen beds and one room was a kid suite with a king bed and two sets of bunk beds. If you have kids, the kid suite is awesome. It has a wall divider, giving the illusion that there are two rooms, but the wall does not go all the way to the ceiling. There is a separate TV in the kid room. Both rooms had refrigerators and microwaves. The beds were clean and comfortable and the bathroom was large and modern. The floor needed to be vacuumed, but other than that, the room was spacious and comfortable for a week stay.
The resort has a large outdoor pool that is heated. The pool area is very nice and clean. They have a splash section for the little ones and two hot tubs. There is a tiki bar right by the pool, but it was not open while we were there. There is an Applebee's adjacent to the hotel that is open from 7AM - 2AM. They serve breakfast for a fee, but kids eat free with a room coupon. There is a free movie theater showing Disney movies from 10AM - 9PM. They also have an arcade and a large store with VERY expensive tourist items and necessity items (think band aids, aspirin, etc.). I would avoid the store because of the prices. There is a Dollar Tree and a convenience store within walking distance. There is also a Dunkin' Donuts if you want to avoid the Applebee's/Holiday Inn breakfast.
There is a ticket desk in the lobby and they offer you a chance to do a timeshare visit and they have a licensed ticket broker there for Disney ticket sales. We purchased our tickets there and it was a breeze. Front desk staff were personable and helpful. When we encountered staff working there, they always said hello and were friendly.
Enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this facility to anyone staying in the area.
