Enjoyed our stay, but disappointed in the room. For $400+, we expected more than a normal room with just ok amenities. Had to move furniture to get to outlet, nothing in night stand. Everything else was great! I would stay there again but get a very different room.

Family trip (3 generations) for first trip To Disney. Crowded but fun. Lots of wear and tear on this property. Not well informed about airline procedures. Nice to have Snow White Dinner here instead of another place! Be prepared to walk and walk and walk!

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
We loved the option to get bunk beds. It have the kids their own space even though there were 4 of us in the room. We loved the water playground & the boat to Magic Kingdom! If you are pressed for time, take the bus instead. It is extremely fast compared to the boat. Food options were great & the lobby was simply stunning. Larger than life hotel. Can't wait to go back.
