Recent guest reviews

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!

Beautiful resort. The boat ride to Disney Springs is very nice. This is the resort that I choose to stay at when coming to WDW.

I did online Checkin the day before. Received the room number before our flight landing. When we got to our room, it was dirty. No sheets on the bed, trash, etc. We called guest services and they reassigned us. The rooms are tired and needs updating. Not enough outlets, small televisions, and overall small. Normal apple power bricks did not work in one outlet. I had to remove the plate that extended too far out to make them work. The food in the food court is average at best. We walked down to French Quarter for dinner and that was the best meal. Everything is more expensive than it should be. Drafts of beer are $8-$10. The bounty breakfast is close to $11 and doesn't fill an average males appetite. Kid meals are better value. Coffee was Mediocre. Joffreys at the park was much better. The pool was nice and the slide was a hit with my grandson. The arcade is an unused waste of space and should be used for a gym since there is none. The boat to Disney springs is convenient. The busses to the parks are reliable. The one head scratcher is the south bus stop at the lobby has the most guests and it's always the 4th/last drop-off. Some of the other stops at times would have no one get off. My first stay at a Disney resort and it was lackluster. I'll probably stay off property in the future.

Everything was great! The only issue we had was that the shower sounded like it was constantly running even when the water was turned off.

Wonderful staff, love the water transportation to Disney Springs!

The faucet leaked the entire time we were there. Nobody seemed to care about fixing it. The shower did NOT drain properly. Whem we first arrived the door stopper was in pieces so I actually fixed it myself. The beds were not confortable but the pillows made up for it. We’ve stayed here before and never had issues will be staying elsewhere on next trip.

Not happy w check in - they dis not provide room contracted and were not very helpful

Stayed in the princess room, it was beautiful. Our view was of the river and we had an easy walk to the lobby. Wished we could of stayed more than 1 night. Only issues was waited over 1.5 hours in the lobby for our room to be ready. Indicated online we would be arriving early due, everyone in our party was extremely exhausted and needed to rest.

Didn't look like it had been vacuumed under the bed in ages. Skittles under the bed. Carpet severely stained. Wanted to check back out but everyone was full. For a Disney property I was floored by the condition. Poor rough shape.
