This was a terrific hotel. It is an official Disneyworld hotel (not resort) which is on propert a short walk or bus ride to Disney Springs. The hotel offers extra magic hours, deliveries from the parks to Disney Springs, 60 day before trip fast passes and complimentary bus service to and from the parks. The staff is very friendly and helpful, very professional. The rooms have a balcony and when we didnt stay in the parks for the fireworks we saw them comfortable, shoes off, from our room. The food in the restaurant is delicious and surprisingly affordable. The bar is so nice and the bartender friendly. There is a Disneyworld Guest Relations staff member in the lobby and a gift shop that is small but offers great Disney must haves. The room was older and the bathroom tiles looked hastily glued but it was very clean and convenient. Our Housekeeper did a terrific job each morning. The hotel busses were ALWAYS on time and we were picked up and dropped off first. This was a wonderful trip and once we had our magic bands that we purchased in the gift shop there was very little difference between us at the BW hotel and a resort guest. Except that we paid far less.

The hotel is currently being expanded with construction noise during the day. This should not be much of a concern as most people will be heading to the parks anyway. The hotel is an easy 10 minute walk from Disney Springs. There are buses from the hotel to Disney Springs if you want to ride. There are extra hotel fees, but I was surprised by an additional parking fee too. I believe it was $8 / day. These are the type of fees that are annoying and come across as just another way to get more money from the customer. Overall I was satisfied with the hotel and would stay again. All hotels should simply give the total price upfront instead of sneaking the extra fees.

Positive: The location being within walking distance Disney Springs and view was excellent plus the bus to the Disney resorts. Negative: The elevator was loud could hear through the room all night, the workers on the new addition started at 6Am which was obnoxious. The shower took more than 10 minutes to heat up. I feel that I was charged too much to endure the negative items.

The location is great. Close to Disney Springs (10-15 minute walk) and minutes away by bus to Epcot and Magic Kingdom. Parking is a breeze. The Concierge was a well of knowledge and very helpful in all aspects. The outdoor baggage employees were also very helpful with information and directions.

Being in walking distance to Disney Springs was a plus. The staff were friendly. Pricing was as economic as you can be I. Disney - and was a determining factor in my choice. Rooms need refreshed, but assume that once construction on the new portion of the hotel is complete, they will turn their attention to the existing rooms. Overall - a quality hotel with a good experience
