Checked in on Friday and immediately went to the pirate cove. Had a great couple of hours there and my 3 year old thoroughly enjoyed himself.

From first contact with reservations at hotel, call directly instead of 800#, great customer service. Paula one of front desk managers gave us a great rate since we were staying 4 nights and was so helpful offering advice about other aspects of our stay. Hotel is very well kept, grounds are beautiful and kids loved pool and water play area....

This hotel has a great waterpark. Kids love it! It's a 10 min. walk to Disney and across the street to Mimi's Cafe which has great food too. It's a very good option to walk to Disney and enjoy the Water Park afterwards.

I highly recommend this hotel to anyone who wants a clean, family friendly hotel. The pirate water splash park was a great way to unwind and cool off.
