Fabulous Option for Families at DisneyWorld
Posted Apr 1, 2010
The room was nice, a bit outdated to my taste, but completely met our needs and was a great quiet place to relax after and between time at the parks. Loved taking the ferry to MK, and the pool and on-site activities were fantastic. Being on the ground floor was an unexpected benefit as we had a little back yard where the kids could play. Being in a "villa" room at Disney is perfect for families - we were able to have groceries delivered so we could eat a quick breakfast (and get the kids breakfast while we were getting ready), before hitting the parks. Some tips for traveling here:
1) If you book through Expedia (as we did), be sure to call Disney several weeks before your trip to request the Magical Express, which is free transportation from the airport to Disney hotels. They will mail you a booklet which you will need to get the free transport.
2) DO NOT use the luggage tags that come with Magical Express. They took 4 hours to deliver one bag, and 12 to deliver the other - crazy! You can just get your bags at baggage claim and bring them with you on the bus.
Overall had a great time and would highly recommend the hotel!
