It’s a nice and clean hotel, with a nice heated pool. However, wastewater runs through sewage pipe very loud. Every time people staying upstairs using toilet, shower, faucet, we hear water running sound very clearly. The most annoying part is the pool music!! It starts early

Thank you angelaj25, the time you have listed are correct for normal traffic. We also have a scheduled shuttle for going to the Parks in the morning and returning that you can use to supplement your times with. It takes you to Disney's Ticket and Transportation Center where you can then choose your Disney Transportation for any Disney Park.

Hi there! The schedule for the shuttle will come out at the end of this month when we receive Disney's final schedule for the first 15 days. The resort fee does include self parking as well so that is not an extra change. We do have a guest services desk here in the lobby that can provide you with tickets, some options allow a discount depending on your choice of tickets. Thank you! Keith D.

We are about 15-20 minutes away depending on traffic. Most of the trip there is on Disney property.

The shuttles are scheduled and the schedule changes monthly. Walking to Disney Springs can be done but is just about a mile and there are several busy intersections, we definitely recommend a taxi. The shuttle typically firts leaves at 8 am , then a bit after 9 and then closer to 11am and two other times that do change.

Hi Pete, We are about a mile from Disney Springs but one must cross several intersections to get there so we do recommend driving or taxi as the parking is free there. You are able to request for shuttle with wheelchair access and the company requests that you notify them before hand. The guest service desk can help with this as well as they say they have a limit of two wheelchairs per shuttle. Thank you!

"our room faced the parking lot out back. We had a great view of the fireworks from Disney"
"I have nothing extra to say here."
"I liked overlooking the pool. Sixth floor with a balcony. Not overly loud."
"Near to the parks"
"Pool view seemed nicer than our view but was not a priority for us"
