The food had a lot more vegetables and less grease, as there had Asian-style or European food. We tended to purchase Asian stir-frys and rice- or pasta-style dishes, but the variety and choice was immense. In the other sections, such as Movieworld and Fantasyland, the take away was more of the fast-and-greasy-style, like hamburgers and chips, unless you wanted to pay a fortune for overrated smorgasbords, which took a lot of time waiting to be seated. For the restaurant in the castle, even in the off season, the queue for a table was out the door, and, having spoken to some who had been waiting over a half hour to get in, we decided to avoid it like the plague, as the reports from those who had eaten there weren’t all that impressive. Animal Kingdom also had decent food with stalls selling bags of fresh fruit (pineapple or watermelon wedges), an interesting Moroccan bar, and a family restaurant with steaks and salads.
If you have older children who can cope with changing their meal times, try to avoid the peak times. We tried to get in either, just before the major rush started, or grabbed takeaway late, just before some form of street entertainment or show, and would munch while the procession/show was on. This saved wasting precious exploring time, as we were staying in the same spot for the entertainment anyway. We did the same with coffee breaks and killed two birds with one stone.

Also, it's very convenient to get to Pleasure Island, which is within walking distance. Normally I am a fan of the Wyndham hotel brand since their customer service is usually quite good.
Make sure you join the Wyndham by request program. You usually receive upgraded rooms and some sort of perk. At this hotel, I received free local calls, and a small bottle of wine and cheese and crackers were awaiting me in my room.
The only incident that slightly marred my stay here besides the damp smell was the mix up at check-in. I had booked a package and had added an additional guest who checked prior to me since she was arriving much earlier than myself. She was able to check-in, but they would not give her a package that I had received. My room also came with free breakfast coupons and two free tickets to Pleasure Island. When I arrived at the hotel, the envelope containing my tickets/coupons was only for one guest. I immediately made the front desk clerk aware of the situation. I was then informed that I made reservations for only one person not two, and that was why I had only received one set of passes/coupons. Lucky for me, I had a print out of my reservation, as well the name of the person I had spoken to. After conferring with the manager, we soon had the matter taken care of.
