    We had a car, so 20 minutes drive to Seaworld. We could have lunch in Old Hickory Steakhouse set within 150 meters.

    The hotel and the swimming pools. Breakfast. 5 minutes of disney, 20 minutes of universal.

    The reservation on booking is either a room with 2 queen or 1 king size bed. We were assigned a room with a king size bed (although we had sent an email to request a queen room). A little short for 1 family of 5. For an upgrade of $50, we finally got a suite with extra bed and king sofa bed.

    Great

    Spacious room, full breakfast, swimming pool and slides area and fantastic water, ideal for the whole family.

    Live music is too loud, very annoying because it bounced off the windows of the balcony of the room, lucky that it was only until 10 pm, for this reason, I have not scored higher ...

    Very good

    The pool is great

    Restaurants very expensive. Felt we were overcharged at sora. The mothers day brunch service was not good yet we were still charged for a tip even though we barely saw our server. The food was good though.

    The atmosphere and the gardens are very relaxing. I got the same time of room as the one I had booked for my sister at the reduced price from Booked.net

    We celebrated our 40th Wedding Anniversary. The Staff at the front desk were excellent and the room was very very nice. We ate at the Hickory Steak, the food and waitress were very good. They gave us a dessert for our anniversary after we dined there. This hotel is beautiful. It is located very close to Epcot and Disney. I would highly reccomend this hotel. Its a treat to stay there! What I liked best? Probably the heavenly bed. It was really comfortable.

    Don't like paying $14 to park at hotel. Besides the tax and resort fee, then you have the parking fee on top of that.

    the food was wonderful when the staff wsa working.duering the week.

    On the weekends they shut down all of the high end restraunts due to low occupancy which is a shame and really deminishes the high end look and feel of the hotel. It is a glorified Hoiliday Inn on hte weekends and somewhat over priced at that.

    The layout of the hotel all enclosed under an atrium is great. Love Hickory Steakhouse! Love the fish in the area of Key West and the sand sculptures. The gators and turtles are neat too. Love the shuttle service to the parks, very convenient.

    The bed was too hard. It's very cold in the atrium.

    This was a very nicely updated facility.

    Our room was not maintained by the housekeeping staff. Drinking water was not replenished as advertised. One of the days we were there, the water service was interrupted, due to a break in the line feeding the hotel? The facility was without running water for almost 8-hours. While I completely understand that the hotel staff cannot do anything about the problem, I did expect that a hotel/resort such as this to step up and show that they value their customers. For example, at the time the interruption occurred, my family and I were at a breakfast buffet that was over $30 per person. Since the hotel/resort had no water, there was no coffee, tea, or drinking water...understandable...but I would have thought that if bottled water was not available, wouldn't the restaurant give at least a small discount for the lack of available drinks? No My family and I were scheduled to attend a College Football Bowl Game that day, and other members were headed to Disney. Again, I completely understand that this was not the fault of the hotel, but wouldn't they offer a discount for the inconvenience or maybe something to show the appreciation of its customers and their patience? No Instead, when I did get thru to the front desk, the lady was rude and unconcerned of what a real problem this was for its guests. This is very sad. Very nice place, but no concept for taking care of its guests when unforeseen problems occur. Beware of all the hidden costs. Our four night stay was quoted just under $800 for four in one room. Between parking and other hotel fees that were not disclosed at the time of quote, our bill was just over $1100. Of course, this does not include meals we purchased. We have spent over 8 family vacations to disney and stayed at their resorts. At least their quotes are real. We will not be back!

    My reservation was wrong when I arrived at the hotel they insisted that I requested two queen beds , however I specifically requested a king. After the misunderstanding was straightened out they were so kind as to upgrade my room.

    The only thing I didn't like was the resort fee and paying for parking. It's not a lot, however I'm a college student so of course I was hesitant at paying this fee.

    Perfect

    The staff can't be helpful enough and treat you like royalty from the minute you arrive. The atrium is perfectly maintained. The stores are lovely, the ambiance is relaxing. The gator feeding is a nice touch, the fish in the running brooks are wonderful to watch, the cleanliness, the music, etc. etc. An amazing place to stay and my granddaughter has a new favorite place to stay in Kissimmee/Orlando! We can't wait to see the new water park when it's completed.

    The new lighted mirror in the bathrooms is not good for the ladies putting on their makeup or doing their hair. The edge lighting is not good for that purpose, although it's good for just ambiance lighting.

    Above average amenities...wouldn't classify as "luxury"

    I reserved a king-size bed and was given a room with 2 full beds. For the money I paid, I'd expect to be given a room that was reserved.
