Overpriced for what you get.
6.0 Okay
Pros:Location is amazing.

10.0 Excellent
Pros:Excellent service
8.0 Great
Pros:Shivas restaurant was excellent. All staff was very friendly and helpful
Cons:Beds and pillows were too hard. Room was very basic and seemed more like a room in an economy hotel. Nobody likes the avalanche of fees that drop on you as you leave.
10.0 Excellent
Pros:Location! We were going for the food and wine festival at Epcot!
8.0 Great
Pros:I enjoyed the pool and the front cafe.
Cons:More options for food at later hours. I didn’t have anything to eat because their late night options were closed.
10.0 Excellent
Pros:We enjoyed the pools!
Cons: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.
10.0 Excellent
Cons:Prices a bit steep for food and drinks. Example: coffee/lattes that cost more than Starbucks?
10.0 Excellent
