Accommodations Review:

The room was fantastic. we had a kids suite. we had a living room with a kitchenette and bathroom and the first bedroom had bunk beds with a trundle bed and the kids had their own TV and VCR. the second bedroom had a king-sized bed its own vanity area and TV as well as a closet. we had 3 TV's which helped for it rained every night we got back from WDW so we could not swim.

Restaurant/Lounge Review:

Very expensive buffet. not worth the money. kids eat free but only at certain restaurants at certain times. The free breakfast made up for this. It had hot food as well as cold and to go boxes. so we had lunch for the park everyday taken care of.

Pool Description/Comments:

Zero entry pool was fantastic. Our only gripe, and we got a night free, kids under 4 must be in plastic swim pants, and not disposable swim diapers. You get a coupon for $2 off to buy them from the hotel. The wording is deceptive on the coupon we thought they were for the disposable diapers I had with us. It was not until the morning we were checking out that the kids got kicked out of the pool for not having the right diaper on. We chose this hotel for their swim policy, but the subcontractors who patrol the pool are rude. so beware. The pool has lots of pumps and spraying water and bikes to ride as well as a separate fenced area for a kids pool, and a playground.

Other Comments:

When we go to WDW next year we are going to stay here again.
