hidden fees

After our stay we ended up being charged resort fees which total an additional $100 on top of the $1000 we already paid no room service menu from applebees and when trying to order room service they delivered it to the wrong room and told us that we wrote down wrong room number they were infuriating to deal with.

Good Stay for family

No complaints about the room. Good entertainment for kids during the day. The elevator on my wing was out of service for the last three days. Had to walk to another wing. That will be my only complaint. The breakfast buffet included was good. No complaints about the service from Employees from hotel and the Applebees Rest.

Sightseeing tip: In Hotel

It's good to stay at a Hotel that has many activities during the day. The weather is unpredictable and you don't know when you'll have to stay the whole day at the hotel. So if you're with kids it's good to stay at a Hotel that has many activities during the day.

Good stay

It was our first trip to Florida together. We really had a good time at this location. Staff was helpful when I was calling to check my reservation and nearby attractions. Loved the Applebee's that was attached to hotel.

Good Family Oriented Place

The facility pays a lot of attention to serving the theme park crowd with kids. The pool is dominated by kids and adults take refuge in the jacuzzi. The rooms are large, comfortable and came with a fridge and micro. The only disappointment was the Applebees located in the lobby. Really mediocre food but then, that's Applebees. For choice in food, you really have to drive, not far but you have to drive.

Disney getaway

Front desk staff was nice and able to check in fast but should have more staff at the front to offer help especially when you just get to the hotel for the first time.

One thing which didn't make our vacation perfect, is the weather, 3 days raining, we expect enjoy the pool in the hotel, because the weather, it closed.
