Accommodations Review:

Standard rooms are about the same size as Disney moderate resort rooms. They have smoking and non-smoking rooms available, and all rooms come with two double beds, a refrigerator, a TV with remote, an in-room safe, chest of drawers, and a table with two chairs. The rooms have always been clean and spacious every tie I have been there.

Mini suites are quite a bit larger than the standard rooms, and have a 3/4ths wall separating the space into two rooms. On one side, you have a pull out sofa and chest of drawers, and on the other side, there is a king size bed, TV with remote, refrigerator and microwave, safe and table with two chairs.

Rate/Night (for your stay):

$50.95 for a three person suite.  

The rates at Magic Castle vary with the season. Rates in the off season range from around $30 for a single occupancy standard room to about $45-$50 for a suite. In peak season, rates begin around $40 or a single occupancy standard room and go up to around $55 for a suite.

Children under 18 stay for free.

Pool Description/Comments:

Magic Castle has one swimming pool. It's adequate for taking a quick dip, but it is not themes and does not have a waterslide, Jacuzzi, children's pool or lifeguard. There is a small playground adjacent to the pool for children to play on. Picnic tables and barbecue pits are also centrally located near the swimming pool.

Other Comments:

I enjoy staying at Magic Castle Inn and Suites very much. We have stayed with them three times thus far and have been very happy with the quality of the rooms and the services proved by the staff and facilities.

Magic Castle also serves a deluxe continental breakfast every morning. This includes coffee, milk, juice, donuts, pastries, bagels, English muffins, toast, cereal and fresh fruit. There is no dining room, so guests must take their food back to their rooms or eat outside on a picnic table. There is also an ice maker in the room adjacent to the lobby.

The staff at Magic Castle has been nothing but helpful and pleasant to me and my family. I've had no problems whatsoever with changing or canceling a reservation, obtaining a reservation or check in and checking out. Everyone I have dealt with seems to be Disney quality in guest service.

I have no hesitation at all to recommend Magic Castle Inn and Suites to anyone. I've found it to be the best hotel value I've found anywhere. The rooms are spacious and clean, the staff is friendly, it's within easy driving distance of Disney World, and it has a free continental breakfast. If anyone has any specific questions I haven't answered here, please e-mail me and I will be more than happy to answer them.

Once again, I recommend this hotel without hesitation at all.
