I couldn't possibly describe this wonderful resort in 500 words. Here is the rest! Enjoy!
The living room featured a pull-out couch and two oversized, comfy chairs. You were right beside the kitchen, and there is nothing dividing the kitchen and living room area. The kitchen is a full kitchen. On the side of large island you have a 37-inch TV for guests in the living room. They both had VCR’s at the time and VCR’s in the main lobby. By now, I would imagine they would have DVD players. The kitchen has a small dining table in the corner. The kitchen is tiled and reminds me of a Mexican hacienda kitchen. Very beautiful. You do have a dishwasher, fridge, and microwave, as well as pots, pans, and table wear. You just provide the food. There is a washer and dryer in the walkway in the front. Top-floor rooms have their own spacious deck, which has a picnic table.
The main building is quite rustic and charming. Everyone at the front desk is very nice and helpful. But what else would you expect from Disney? Out front, check out the bushes shaped into Disney characters. They do have a pool in the summer months. They do have daily activities, which are included in the price. They have a fully stocked general store where you can stock up on snacks, beverages, and plenty of Disney merchandise. They offer several restaurants on the premises. They have bicycle rentals on the property. Inside the main building you will find Big Margie’s Den. Here you can watch TV, play checkers, or warm up to the fire in cooler months. Your room key is also your account. Just like at the Disney resorts, you can use it for purchases on your property and it is charged to your account.
Disney guests have access to the Palmetto Dunes, which sits just across the road. It is a gated community, and you will need your Disney parking pass to get in. There you will find a beautiful and pristine beach perfect for swimming or walking hand-in-hand down the soft sand. The Disney Beach Club also features water sports and pools if you are not swimming in the ocean. They do have restaurants and shopping in the area, and of course, golf! They have courses designed by Trent Jones and George Fazio and the Arthur Hills Golf Course.
In front is the Shelter Cove Harbor, which I have a separate entry on. The resort is absolute a must for the whole family. The resort is very affordable. Come here in the fall and enjoy the warm weather and great rates. And a touch of Mickey! For more information, go to www.disney.com.
