Our AC did not work and we didn't realize it until it was 9 pm, they sent someone up immediately unfortunately after an hour he still couldn't get it going. I then requested a new room which we moved to at 11 PM. total bummer, but they did what they could and made it better. The rest of the stay was great.

Liked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Stayed at the little mermaid and the rooms are very far from main areas. I don’t mind walking but it was far and inconvenient from everything especially after a day at the parks. Also, the bathtub had hair in it and when I lifted the blanket, the sheets were dirty (looked like a giant booger). They offered to come and replace bedsheets but it late and my kids were falling asleep so I told them I would change it myself if they bring new ones.
