Great water park for toddlers and young children. Easy walk to Disney. Mimi's Cafe, Panera and mchdonalds are all next door. Bed comfy, pillows not great, rooms need updating. Game room needs help. Would recommend for families with small children.

I did tell the front office the same night as check in....
