Accommodations Review:

We had a kid suite. It was great for our party of 4 (2 kids, myself and a friend). We were a little disappointed that we had to ask for toilet paper and paper towels in our second week and although the room was straightened up each day, sheets were only changed once a week, we had to request clean towels and I don't think they vacuumed the whole time we were there. But over all we were satisfied.

Rate/Night (for your stay):

Approximately $90 Canadian

# of Restaurants/Lounges:

3

Restaurant/Lounge Review:

There was a Veranda Restaurant opened from 11a.m. to 4 p.m. The food was reasonable and fairly good. There was another Restaurant that was opened for dinner. It served a buffet. Children under 12 eat free, but I found that with my son (being 13) and I having to pay $40.00 for a meal (my daughter is only 9) it was expensive. The menu offers very little forcing you to take the buffet. There is a lounge also, although I did not go there. There is also a food court with an A&W and a Pizza Hut. Food is what you expect, prices are comparable, but service was extremely slow.

Amenities / Facilities / Activities Available:

Sundries Shop, Pool, Health Club/Spa, Hair Dryer, Laundry, In-room Safe, Babysitting/Kid's Programs, Cooking Facilities, Room Service, Non-Smoking Rooms Available, Fire Sprinklers.

Pool Description/Comments:

There were 2 pools. We were in the family suite area that had the zero entry pool. The kids had fun with the water squirters. The other complex which was more for adults had a lap pool.

Other Comments:

I would go again, but it is definitely easier if you have a car. If you are just going to Disney you are fine, the shuttle is great. But if you want to go to other places (i.e. Universal or Sea World) the taxis get costly. In this case it would be much more economical to stay on International Drive.
