Food was good -- as name suggests, steaks are on the menu. Try the 32 oz. porterhouse steak -- it's huge. Above all else, customer service was brilliant. The daily specials are unusual and after a hard day at the parks, the atmosphere is very relaxing.

Walt Disney World

Attraction | "Disney World"

Everything is brilliant. Everywhere is clean. Staff are helpful and friendly and actually look like they enjoy their work. All the attractions are great. You tend to loose touch with reality, which sometimes is not a bad thing.
