This was part of a family a trip that included my family, my sister's family along with my mom and dad. We were in the parks pretty much the entire time. We only came back to the hotel when it was time for bed with perhaps a quick dip in the pool.
The Good: It's located on Disney property, so there's free transportation to all of the parks and Downtown Disney. And, like all Disney properties, it's immaculate. Rooms are small, but cozy, about what you would expect on the budget level. Guests get a complimentary travel coffee mug that can be refilled with free coffee, hot chocolate or soda at the snack bar located in the main building. Two decent sized heated pools add to the resort atmosphere.
The Bad: Disney likes to stick the school and youth groups into this hotel and its immediate neighbors that have movie and music themes. With that in mind, get ready for unattended adolescents running around the place pretty much all the time. Some of the bad reviews said they were mostly out of control, but that wasn't the case; only a couple instances of kids running down the hall late at night. If you are in one of the outer buildings, you will have to hike to get your free soda or coffee. The dining area is closed for renovations. Maid service missed our room at least one of the five days. Also, there are no mini fridges, though earlier reviews indicated they were there.
Nitpicking: The decor in the baseball area looks like it hasn't been updated since the place opened in the 90s. The team banners feature out-dated logos and includes one team that doesn't exist anymore -- the Montreal Expos.
