General Review-Writing Guidelines


MousePlanet values your comments!

So do other readers. Therefore, before you compose your review please take a moment to consider what you might include to maximize its appreciation by others. Note also that our review policies follow closely the model adopted by Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble, and other sites that routinely collect customer comments. Thus, please be aware that we have adopted a 100-line (roughly 1,000 word) maximum on submitted reviews. The recommended length is 5 to 20 lines.

What to include:

Your comments should focus on the overall experience and quality of the hotel, restaurant or service you are reviewing. How well did the facility or vendor live up to its implied service or value. The best reviews include not only whether you liked or disliked a given hotel, restaurant or service, but also why. Feel free to mention other venues or service providers you consider similar, and how this facility or service rates in comparison to them. Comments that are not specific to the hotel, restaurant or service being reviewed will not be posted on our site. Please be sure to include the following in your review:

Hotel Reviews:

Required:
· Date(s) of Stay:
· Type/Class of room (Standard, Concierge, Park View, etc.)
· Accommodations Review:
· Rate/Night (for your stay):
Appreciated, but Optional:
· Ease of Disney Park Access:
· Park Shuttle Comments:
· General Restaurant/Lounge Impressions: (Please submit a separate Restaurant Review for more specific comments)
· Pool Description/Comments:

Restaurant Reviews:

Since the only way a more informed decision can be made by future visitors is by a full description, we ask that you provide more than just a sentence or two on the restaurant. Bad example: "The food was great and the waiters very attentive. I'd eat there again." Good example: "I ordered the house specialty (filet mignon) and it was cooked perfectly, my partner ordered the chicken which was rather dry but the orange sauce was good. We had heavenly flan for dessert, and the wait staff was very attentive. Dinner for two including wine was $40-50."

· Date of visit.
· Type of meal. (Breakfast, Brunch, Lunch, Dinner, Dessert, Drinks only, etc.)
· While you will probably cover these points in your written review, please also include a one-line rating of the following four aspects of your visit: Service, Price, Food, Atmosphere

Ground transportation Services:

Ground transportation companies vary widely in the types of services offered, so please be specific about the details of your experience. Things to mention in your review:

· Date(s) you used the service.
· Destination. (Airport to hotel, airport to cruise port, hotel to theme parks, etc.)
· What type of vehicle. (Sedan, limo, van, shuttle, bus, etc.)
· How many people in your party and rate paid.
· While you will probably cover these points in your written review, please also include a one-line rating of the following four aspects of your visit: Price, Vehicle Comfort / Cleanliness, Driver

Future visitors will certainly appreciate any extra information you can provide: how long was the trip to your destination; who paid for parking / tolls (you or the driver); were car seats offered or available, and at what cost; did you have to share the service with other customers; were grocery stops included in your trip; how knowledgeable was the driver.


What not to include:

Resist the temptation to comment on other reviews already posted on the page. Please limit yourself to one trip or visit per review. For restaurant reviews, each meal should be a separate review. For hotel and ground transportation reviews, your review may cover your entire stay. This information (and its position on the page) is subject to change without notice. While we appreciate your time and comments, we respectfully request that you refrain from including the following in your review:

  • Profanity, obscenities, or spiteful remarks.
  • Single-word reviews. Other readers want to know why you liked or disliked the product.
  • Comments focusing solely on the management / staff of the restaurant, hotel or service.
  • Phone numbers, mail addresses, URLs.

After your review is submitted:

All reviews submitted become the non-exclusive property of MousePlanet, and may be edited, posted or deleted at our discretion. Posts that do not include all of the requested information will be sent back to you for correction and resubmission. Posts that are in violation of our posting guidelines will not be posted.

Your e-mail address is required, so that we may contact you with additional questions. You have three options to create an author byline to use with your review. You may choose to use your name or MousePad name, e-mail address, or a combination of these as your byline. If you choose to remain completely anonymous, your review will not be posted.
