We stayed in a two-bedroom unit and had a lot of room. It was very clean. The master bedroom has a king-size bed, and the second bedroom has two twin beds. We had two bathrooms, a living room, dining area, and a full kitchen with settings for eight.
The resort has two floors, and every unit has either a balcony or patio. I called before our arrival and requested an upstairs unit. The staff is super nice and very helpful.
I liked the Monday towel exchange. They took the trash, too. The midweek cleaning was also a big plus. (You don't get this in every resort.)
They have different activities for children every day. The pool is nice and heated but nothing fancy.
You will be able to watch Disneyland's fireworks every night. Here is a little tip: Go to the backside parking lot of the resort, have a seat on the stairs, and enjoy the show. If you can see the Tower of Terror, you are in the right place.

It was also very quiet and the guy who checked us in asked us if we'd prefer the back of the resort where it's farther away from the pool and quieter in general. That was very nice for us because we were not traveling with children.
Some kids did wake us up by playing too early outside on the putting green. But it wasn't that bad.
We stayed in a one bedroom deluxe. It was impressive with everything in good working order. There was a stereo system, and VCR in the living room. The bedroom also had a television. There was one bathroom and it was connected with the bedroom so if we would have had other guests, they would have had to go through our bedroom to get to the bathroom.
The kitchen had everything you'd need for cooking including dishes. There was a fridge with ice trays, and a microwave.
Another nice feature was that the front desk had video games and VHS tapes for rent (VHS tapes for $2.00 for 24 hrs.) But knowing that the room had a video gamem system (can't remember what kind!) and a VCR, we would know we could bring our own next time.
There were lots of activities scheduled, but we didn't participate in any of them. They were all geared towards children.
The only bad thing about staying here is having to drive to Disneyland. We are annual pass holders, so parking was free for us, but otherwise you will have to pay to park in the parking garage.
The resort was easy to find from the highway.
Here is some more info from their resort information packet:
1 bedroom sleeps 4 people
2 bedroom sleeps 6
3 bedroom sleeps 8
Shuttle service is offered for a "minimal fee." Checkout time is 11a.m. No pets are allowed.
Just also to add: We stayed in unit 403 which was located near the very back of the resort. As I mentioned earlier, this was nice because it was far away from the more active part of the resort. The mini golf green was right outside our patio. Our unit was also on ground level which we usually prefer. There was also a small "jungle gym" for kids a few doors down in front of unit 401.

There were plenty of places to eat nearby and we found it a good base for the beach, although it was a long way from Malibu and Santa Monica, but we enjoyed the drive!Best Things About the Resort:The peace and quiet, although not far from two main roads. We requested a unit at the back and it was very quiet and peaceful. Resort Experience:The gardens reminded me of my childhood when we stayed in small hotels in Italy. They had a Mediterranean feel to them, with climbers and trees.
The unit was very clean and well equipped and the staff very friendly and helpful.
We were able to choose between an upstairs or downstairs unit and were issued with a parking permit. There was ample parking space. The unit had two bedrooms - one of them being two single beds one of which had to be pulled from underneath the other, but only one bathroom. There was a TV in the lounge and a sofa bed, a dining table and a small kitchen area with dishwasher, microwave and fridge/freezer. There was also a patio which could have done with pressure washing as it had green mildew under the a/c unit.
We refused a meeting regarding timeshare when we arrived and were not pestered at all during our stay.
We had a problem the last night, which was a change-over day and there was horrendous noise coming from the overhead apartment, which went on for two and a half hours with children jumping off beds, running, and screaming. At 12:30am we rang reception and they sent someone immediately to sort it out and it stopped.
On the whole, we enjoyed our stay and would go again.

The resort is not walking distance from Disneyland, but it's a short driving distance. It's a good place to stay at for the Anaheim attractions. It's convenient, and there is a Vons close by where we bought our groceries. The neighborhood appeared to be fairly safe, a middle-class neighborhood.
Our 1-bedroom unit was nice. There was a sofabed, dining table with settings for four, a full-sized refrigerator, dishwasher, and coffeemaker with a starter set of coffee and hot chocolate. There was a king-sized bed in the bedroom. The bathroom was carpeted with two divisions. When you walk from the living room, you first go into the sink/vanity area with a mirrored closet, then into the room that contains the toilet and bathtub/shower. There was a courtesy supply of shampoo and lotion. Our unit was on the bottom floor with a patio table. Make sure you close the patio door after using it. Anyone can walk up to the patio from the walkways.
Check in and check out was fairly simple. The electronic gate for the driveway was a little tempermental, but all in all, we enjoyed our stay here. We liked the convenience.
