Amazing experience. Got upgraded to a suite. Staff is helpful and the food is amazing.
Alexis, us2 night family trip
Very good 8,0
The room was exceptional. My problem was mostly service related. We checked in, then later that evening we went back to purchase our park tickets for the next day. I decided to pay cash for the tickets but I assume the majority of customers pay with their attached credit card so it was also charged to my card . It was immediately refunded but now I’m stuck with a $400 pending charge on my card on a holiday weekend. Not what I was expecting.

Perfect for Families with Kids
Very nice very clean hotel, certainly plenty for our grandchild to marvel at and enjoy. Room was spotless albeit a little cramped with 2 queens. Cute decor and again our 5yr old grand was thrilled. We left her in rm with Mom and went to get something for us all to eat and much needed wine for us. Drop Off bar a welcome respite. Pizza-eh, not so much. Cold and too bready, but value in getting a salad, water and breadsticks with- enough for 4 of us. Very efficient system. Would go back with the grands.

Love Disney hotels, HATE MOBILE ORDERS
Great room decor. Very fun for lovers of themed decorations. Of course depending on where you stay in this hotel, walking could be an issue to main buildings. Our biggest issue was the online ordering for all the food. We hate mobile orders and find it very un-Disney like. There needs to be a safe option that allows for interactions. Many people hate mobile orders and are not comfortable with the mobile systems.

A very fun place for character fans
Very cute Disney characters and decor everywhere! The rooms are a little cramped and I don't think our air conditioner was working right. But the view from our room was fantastic and everyone at Disney was pleasant and helpful.

So cute!
If you have young children this hotel is a must! So cute! We stayed at the Little Mermaid building to celebrate our Daughters third birthday, but I was able to see the whole hotel while exercising on the jogging trail. So much detail!! My Daughter loved it. 80/100 foot Ursula & Ariel statues where a big hit with my toddler. Standard ( two queen beds ) room was a little snug but had lots of cute decor. Next time ( yes there will be a next time ) I would love to stay in one of the suites.
