Check in was not long. The thing that was different was after I checked in at the front desk, I was sent to another desk in the lobby to pick up my room keys. I thought that this was when I was going to get the timeshare talk. But what happened was I was given my room key and shown on a map how to get to my room. The lady asked me if this was my first time staying here and asked me if I had any questions. That was it. I kept waiting to tell her politely I was not interested in listening to a timeshare pitch but nothing was ever mentioned. 3 days later I had a message on my room phone. I thought here it is the timeshare pitch. No, it was a message telling me that housekeeping would be around to exchange my towels the next day.
The 2 bedroom unit was spacious and clean. All the staff I had contact with were polite. The only complaint I had with the resort was the noise from the unit above was noticeable during the evening. It bothered me a little but didn't continue too long. The other was that TVs didn't have hd cable feed. For a nice resort, this really bothered me. The TVs reception even had shadows so it wasn't enjoyable to watch.
Downtown Disney and Magic Kingdom are 15 minute drives. Epcot 10 minutes and Hollywood Studios less than that. Animal Kingdom is less than 5 minutes! Easy to get to the parks and back to resort using the back entrance. Never had to use I-4.
