My husband, myself, and our 3 year old stayed Thursday - Sunday. We had a great time. Thursday and Friday were great at the water park...we had no lines, and our son had a ball. Saturday however, was so busy, that I wasn't comfortable having our three year old around all those people. I think because they allow anyone to purchase day passes to the water park, it was very busy with people who live in the Orlando area.
The pizza hut express and callaloo's takeout area was priced fairly and had typical chicken tenders, burgers, fries, and pizza items. It was a nice option for our day that we spent at the pool. There is also a nice bar that serves great drinks at a decent price. They also offer a all you can drink cup for soft drinks that was $10. If you drink a lot of soda, this is your best option.
The pools are monitored very closely by lots of lifeguards. They are very good at their job. All of the staff that we came in contact with was friendly and more than willing to help with any questions we had. The large pool that is away from the water park is nice. There were a lot of people there on Saturday also, and there were some people that did bring coolers. (We had read that you could not bring your own drinks and snacks into the pool areas. I brought snacks for our 3 year old, and bottled water and had no problems from the staff) Overall, the pools are nice, but very very packed on weekends. They did have a lot of things for all different age groups which was nice since we had a little one with us.
There is a Chili's, TGI Fridays, Edy's Ice Cream shop, Pirates dinner and various Chinese restaurants within a very short 3 minute walk. Due to the ridiculous traffic on International Drive, we chose to walk to dinner so we didn't have to battle that traffic. There is also a miniature golf course right next door, and the Titanic experience is there as well. Right down I Drive, there is any restaurant you could imagine.
The rooms were nice. Beds and pillows comfy, nothing over the top. We were in building #6 with a king bed and pull out sofa. We could see the water park from our room. Had no problems hearing our neighbors, but we did have a fire alarm that was pulled on Saturday night which caused the entire building to evacuate. Not fun with an almost asleep 3 year old. Average rooms that were clean.
Overall, a great getaway for a few nights. Since we live only an hour away, I would say we will go back for sure, but only during midweek. :)
