The room size was huge! We had a standard room with two queen beds, and there was enough room that we could have added a couple of roll-aways if we wanted and still had room to move around. The decor left something to be desired. Quite bland, with not much on the walls. There was a hum that came and went all night from somewhere in the bowels of the hotel. For the most part it didn't bother me, but it was curious. A dresser and double-door closet provided plenty of room for unpacking. A blow dryer is provided in the bathroom, and an iron and ironing board are in the closet.
We had breakfast one morning in the lobby restaurant. The buffet seemed rather expensive, so we went a la carte. It was a delicious and filling start to our day. A window seat provides a lovely view of a courtyard garden.
A shuttle departs for the parks every half hour, with the last shuttle at night coming back right at closing time. This eliminates having to pay a parking fee at the park. However, parking at the hotel is $8/day -- so much for saving on parking! The Park Hopper Passes we had allowed for free parking in the Mickey and Friends parking structure, so we took advantage of that a couple of times. It's a little hard to find that particular parking area, only because there is no signage; I suggest asking at the front desk for directions. It's actually very close and easy to get to if you know what you're looking for.
All in all, a fine hotel. Not the best, certainly not the worst.
