5th floor Room was of High Standard. Quality soundproofing, large luxurious queen beds and plenty of space. Waterpark was an instant hit with the kids. Highly recommend you put in on your list.

We are first-time Disneylanders who drove down from Reno! Check-in was a breeze, we got to our room, which was a "superior" view room. Totally worth the extra few dollars if you and your family love fireworks! You really need to plan out your dinner dining because all places are packed! We ordered to some take out and watched fireworks...

Excellent service. Room was clean. The free coffee, the microwave, and the refrigerator was a plus, specially when traveling with children.
