Great water park for toddlers and young children. Easy walk to Disney. Mimi's Cafe, Panera and mchdonalds are all next door. Bed comfy, pillows not great, rooms need updating. Game room needs help. Would recommend for families with small children.

Everyone at the hotel is very nice and always ready to help. We stayed in a Pirates of the Caribbean kids suite and our girls loved the bunk beds and that they had their own room. Another big hit with both the girls and us was the water park, lots of great fun in a great environment. The walk to...

Rooms are cleaned daily and there is a shop near the reception that has your basic needs. We arrived on a flight from Sydney early and was allowed to check in early which...

This was a great place for us to stay for our Disney holiday. Family of four, kids 4 & 8. The family room worked well for us to crash into of an evening after our day at Disney. The water playground was fun for our kids the one time we actually used it. They would have preferred a larger waterslide...
