Recent guest reviews

Service is truly exceptional compared to a five star.. from readying room early, delivery of luggage to the door ASAP, food and beverage and grounds maintenance. Failure are facility management-- buses did not correlate with electronic apps 80% of the time and were not allocated to parks in any way to the demand of riders. Second, it's nice Disney CEO got his 150 million pay last year so that guests are left with Motel 6 trashy looking shower pumps in place of classy looking toiletries.

The resort has a nice running trail around the water.

Air conditioning doesn’t work. Too few outlets, very inconvenient. Furniture has sharp edge. My kid bumped her head and had a terrible booboo the first night.

When we 1st walked into the room, the room had an unpleasant odor. I never smelled that odor again. The rooms decor was adorable. The room was clean, and comfortable. The hotel staff were all very helpful, and friendly. We were very pleased with our stay here.

It was great. The staff was really nice and helpful.

Transportation to parks loved the hotel had more than one pool

Great mid tiered Disney resort. Good access to resorts and Disney springs.

Nice room with natural surroundings. Dining little pricey for he quality of food. Daily parking fee. Good outside view form select suites. Disney shuttle to the parks.

Long check in lines. Great amenities. Busses were always full, and sometimes you had to wait for the next bus. Pools were heated, which was great when it was only 60F.

The hotel is nice and quiet with one main (loud) pool and several quiet pools. Unfortunately, the only hot tub on site is at the main pool, right next to the activities person yelling on a microphone. The rooms are well-thought-out for a family, with two sinks outside the main bathroom, and a curtain to pull shut there for changing. The staff are helpful but not intrusive, and less friendly than I would have thought. The transportation is not as "magical" as we anticipated. It took forever to get to and from any park or Disney Springs.

Great hotel! Beautiful grounds..Room was beautiful. We had a standard view but was very nice.

The nicest of the Disney moderate resorts. Newer and cleaner than Caribbean Beach resort and Coronado springs

Close to Magic Kingdom and Disney Springs. Boat or Bus transportation to Disney Springs. Excellent food court choices as well as a table service restaurant. Beautiful lobby and well themed to represent the deep South.

Great restaurants, pools and accessible transportation to Disney parks!
