    The property is in an excellent location! Close to everything with shuttle or water taxis. You can even walk to the boardwalk or Epcot! Staff could NOT be more helpful, we extended our stay! After a long day at the parks there is wonderful dining, family dining or room service. We could have foregone room service but chose to return to a beat room with a made bed. I cannot rave enough about this facility!

    Nothing!

    We enjoyed the pools!

    It would have been better if the swan paddle boats were more available. During our trip, they were frequently unavailable for use “due to weather”, though there were some boats already out in the water.

    Prices a bit steep for food and drinks. Example: coffee/lattes that cost more than Starbucks?
