So we booked the 1 bedroom - but we got the "efficiency" instead as there is no such thing as a 1 bedroom. The door hit the couch when you opened it and we had to take turns entering the condo because we couldn't all come in at the same time because we couldn't fit. We had to move the "kitchen" table to get to the trash can because the kitchen and living room were smaller than my bathroom at home (no really...). There's no housekeeping service available unless you stay 7 days (shouldn't expedia have told us that?!?!). Someone pooped in the pool and it was left floating in the pool for hours (and no they didn't drain the pool and clean it..they just scooped out the poo). THe toilet broke on the third day. Its not in a very nice part of town but its close to Downtown Disney BUT DEFINTELY NOT WALKING DISTANCE. You can hear everything that happens in the stairwells, the parking lot and the hallways. And on top of it all, we had to sit through a 2 hour time share hard sell presentation in order to get the "great rates" that expedia booked. For the same cost we could have paid $300 more (for the full week) and stayed at Downtown Disney (and not paid for parking at Disney and got in early to the shows). Yes they fixed everything within a few hours but that everything was broken or failing apart is what you should be worried about. It's an OLD condo location. The pictures they show are the 2 bedroom, not the one bedroom. While there was a big master bed, the condo says it sleeps 6 for the one bedroom. Yes yout get a pull out couch but you get NO LINENS for it. You have to PAY for the linens if you want sheets for the couch - and even then there are no blankets (guess they assume you won't get cold). No clean towels for a week unless you pay for them. Really felt like a bait and switch. The property seemed run down. We stayed here because we thought it would be nice to have a kitchen to cook in. There was NO counter space (have to use the table in the "living room/bedroom" for food prep and there was no where to pu any food (we had to store all the food on top of the fridge since all the counter space was full with dishes.
