Overall this was a great experience. The hotel is almost brand new so not surprisingly, it was very clean and modern.
Quick points: Beautiful pools, good restaurant options, and quiet resort, downside-no free airport shuttle
The rooms were well designed with gorgeous bathrooms.
We stayed in late June, so overall the resort was not very busy. Walking around the resort was beautiful. The grounds are well kept. There were 2 pools one for adults and one for families. There was also a splash pad. For our young son, the splash pad was a hit. Loads of fun with great poolside service. The adult pool was an infinity view with an OK view but overall never more than 1 or 2 people in it. There were two large water slides we really enjoyed. Tons of activities for kids we didn't get a chance to take advantage of like pool tables, rock climbing, ping pong.
We never had trouble getting a table for any meal at any restaurant. The staff were very friendly and accommodating especially to our little one. For some reason at breakfast the service was mediocre. Staff would forget to bring us menus, or we'd get our drinks half way through our meal. Lunch and dinner never seemed to be an issue though.
There was a free shuttle bus to all the Disney parks, but not to Downtown Disney. It was a comfortable ride on a coach bus which never had more than 4 people - huge plus.

"Newly renovated rooms!!! It's lipstick on a pig!!"
Nice location , well manicured grounds, hotel staff very nice. The room left a lot to be desired. when checked in the a/c unit was making noise, a sleepless night. Came to repair next day and worked for three days when noticed the room was very warm. adjusted thermostat, worked for the day and again too warm again just gave up. The toilet, try to flush something never happens until it wants to. In the edge of the bath mirrors the tiles were not finished looked awful. the rain-shower heads only somewhat trickled water most holes were blocked.
Wow! What a spectacular experience. The room was exceedingly great and very quiet. Very clean and bed was very comfortable. And we had a really great balcony that looked out over the lake and the Magic Kingdom and had a spectacular view of the fireworks. Staff was exceptional and very helpful. Hands down, this is the best hotel I have EVER stayed at. I would recommend this to anybody.
When we arrived it was very late and with 2 small children the check in went smooth. I had ask for a room by the pool and was told that I received an upgrade, which was in the tower. This was ok with us because it looked like they were remodeling some of the other rooms. The beds were very comfortable. We liked the idea that we could walk to Downtown Disney. The kids both enjoyed the pool but I could not believe they charged you for a pool toy. Go to a dollar store and purchase one than throw it away after your done. The only downfall would be the valet parking or do it yourself, it still cost you money either way?!
Our Savannah Guide was amazing! He knew so much about the animals, having been a Safari Guide in South Africa. It made the experience very real :)
The rainstorms with lightning meant we couldn't really use the pools.
