From the dramatic art in the main tower with sleek monorails cruising overhead, to the casual style and convenience of garden rooms looking out over the beach, this is a Disney experience not to be missed. Its bold A frame design makes it a modern masterpiece, capped off by a breathtaking view of the MAGIC KINGDOM Park from the award-winning California Grill, perched high atop the resort. Resort features 656 renovated guest rooms in a 15-story tower and two 3-story garden wings, pool with slide, quiet pool, spas, arcade, playground, children's activity center, tennis courts, volleyball court, bicycle rentals, a marina with watercraft rentals and a health club with spa services and beauty salon.

Complimentary Wi-Fi service is now available in all Walt Disney World Resort hotels. Guests will now be able to access complimentary Wi-Fi in their rooms as well as in select common areas within the resort hotel, including restaurant locations, bus load zones, feature pools, arcades, convention spaces (if applicable) and the porte cochere.

Disney Hotel Resort guests also enjoy their Extra Magic Hours Benefit. On select days, Disney Resort hotel guests can enter a Disney Theme Park an hour early-and on select evenings, enjoy a Park up to two hours after regular closing time. That's when lines may be shorter and the weather can be more comfortable. Guests have time for a midday break or a dip in the pool. Then the gang will be ready to head back to the same Theme Park for more fun! Don't forget your Magic Your Way Tickets with Park Hopper Option! The Park Hopper option is the only way you will be able to fully enjoy the Extra Magic Hours Benefit when the extra hours in the morning is a different Disney theme park than the extra hours in the evening.

The Resort was very nice. The location was the key right next to the Magic Kingdom. You can't get any closer! We didn't actually get a room in the main building so that was a little disappointing, but we were only in the room to rest! The staff was A number one. Very friendly and helpful!

Worth the higher price

I am picky about hotel rooms- they have the be clean, fairly modern with a nice bathroom in order for me to be comfortable. I usually try to pay around $200-250/night but at Disney all the options in that price range are unacceptable. This is the cheapest option if you want a nice room. I had a friend stay at a $250/night resort there and it was old, gross, and in dire need of renovation. That's the general theme there. If you also like to stay in a nice, comfortable room while on vacation I would highly recommend this hotel. The monorail was a great bonus and of course all the other perks that come with staying at an official Disney resort vs. the cheaper hotels outside of Disney.

Magical Experience

Beautiful Hotel, great location and having the monorail passing through the Lobby was great! the room were great so confortable and cozy with a great view. I know is price but is worth the experience everybody is in a magical mood. Only thing I kind of disagree is about the breakfast, if you are paying so much for a 5 stars hotel they could at least give you a free continental breakfast and if you want the breakfast with mickey and friends then you will pay for it. The breakfast still not a big deal food wise but is a nice experience to be with all of disney's characters together. Make sure you make your reservations for everything because when you get there everything is packed and the reservations department is not very helpfull they have some kind of cranky old ladies working there that would not try to help at all, take the breakfast with mickey and I highly recomend the restaurant on the 15th floor to watch the fireworks, food is amazing and you can see the castle and the whole show. overall was a great experience.
