    We have chosen this hotel for our stay this Aug, our travel company doesn't provide transportation to Medieval Times, which we have in our package, how can we get transportation? I will not have my car there with me. Thanks.

    When we were in Anaheim recently, we used Uber. It was very fast. And the Medieval Times is not too far away, so the ride will not be very expensive.

    How far is disney downtown from the hotel? do you have shuttle that goes there? Do you have shuttle that goes to Knott's? If not how easy it is to get to Knott's using public transportation?

    Hi, Downtown Disney is just a bit further than the Park Entrance, so easy to do. We took a public city bus to Knott's, but they have tour buses as well. We did that to Universal studios. The hotel will help with arrangements.

    Are the rooms (all or some) accessed via an interior hallway, or from an exterior hallway? If interior hallway, does it require key access?

    I agree with the others: interior hallway. I also saw a number of buildings where the access doors from the outside to the hallways were left propped open during the day.
