Where do I start? Are you an owner? If so my review is for you. DO THE OWNER'S UPDATE ASAP. The water park is not entirely free unless you are an owner, and even then you'll have to jump through loops to get in. You have free access to the pools, but not the slides and not the tu

We stayed for a quick weekend getaway and wish we could have spent more time on vacation and more time at the hotel. Jeff gave us wonderful customer service and the hotel was perfect. The room was big and clean and had such a great view. The pool and gift shop were perfect and th

The rooms were clean and spacious for a family with 2 young children. The mattresses were superbly comfortable and made each night sleep a good rest. I chose this hotel (instead of the holiday inn at Disney springs) primarily for its location and convenience. You will find a 7-el

Traveled with family to Orlando for vacation at Universal Studios. Originally checked into a Universal property for our stay.

I frequently travel for work and generally connect my laptop and apple tv device to an HDMI port on the TV in the room. I use the TV as a second monitor

We stayed here in September with an indoor room while visiting Disney World and had a pretty nice stay. We live near Savannah, GA, which is just a bit too far to do Disney World as a day trip, so we wanted to settle on a decent, cost-effective hotel to stay the night on our road

Do the suites have the bedroom closed off with a door from the living area? It would be nice to put the kids to bed and be able to shut a door and still stay up later in the night in the living room.
Mike B. I saw the pictures you’re referencing but I also saw pictures on their website of a suite that did look to have a separate sitting room which is why I wanted to ask. Thank you for your response.

Is there a shuttle to and from the airport?
The Property itself does not have an airport shuttle as most Orlando area hotels do not however there is a company called Mear's that delivers by zone to Orlando hotels for one way or round trip very economically or there are many taxi alternatives

What are the shuttles like from this hotel? just a read a review saying it took them 3hrs to get to animal kingdom which I don’t understand because the hotel looks like a 10 min drive which is why I booked this hotel thanks
The shuttle doesn't take three hours and shouldn't even take that long for a connection. The shuttle goes to Disney's Ticket and Transportation center and from there you take what ever the quickest form of transportation you wish to the specific parks. There is a Monorail for Magic Kingdom and Epcot, or the Ferry for MK and they have buses that go to the other parks and locations.

"Suggest staying on room away from pool as it is a family resort and as expected pool noise level greater in rooms closer to the pool."
"Choose an indoor room - less noisey and the showers work!"
"Rooms overlooking pool are quieter"
"lots of choices so just ask"
"Great location, nice staff, fun and big pool."
