Ease of WDW Park Access:

Accommodations Review:

We had a standard room with a pool view. it consisted of two queen beds, ironing boards, coffee makers and mini bar. you can also see the fireworks from the rooms that are facing the pool and that are at least on the 6th or 7th floor.

Rate/Night (for your stay):

We redeemed Marriott awards for both our stays but I would think the rooms range 199 - 350 for a standard room

# of Restaurants/Lounges:

They have one piano bar which is in the atrium. very nice. they also have a poolside bar. They have an ice cream parlor, a cafe that offers pizza, burgers and such (which is attached to a game room) a Japanese restaurant, Italian restaurant and a poolside grill. They also offer room service.

They offer a full service spa, concierge, and childcare service. They have a day camp for kids 5-12 which stays open until 11 PM. My kids really enjoyed it.

They have an 18 hole golf course which is under construction now. a putt-putt course, tennis courts, health club with fitness center and indoor pool.

Pool Description/Comments:

The outdoor pool is very nice it has a water slide and several water falls. they rent floats for the pool. there is a kiddie pool next to the large pool. they have plenty of lounge chairs which stay full! They also have a smaller pool with a volleyball net on the upper level next to the poolside bar. They have three hot tubes outside. One is behind the waterfalls. they also have waitress/waiters that take your orders while you lounge!

Amenities Provided:

They are handicap accessible, they have fire extinguishers in the halls. They have both smoking and non smoking which you need to request when booking.  They have fire sprinklers in the rooms along with cable TV and extra phone jacks for business travelers with computers. They have a Fed Ex shipping station there also. Along with a car rental (I think it's Avis.) They sell stamps and have a post drop for letters.
