They charge you for every little thing. You’re paying for the “resort” and the perks, like getting early to the parks and transportation to the parks. The kids liked the themed rooms, we did have to ask them for a blanket for each bed and even then they were very thin because the bedding is only sheets and 1 heavy sheet. We stayed in Finding Nemo suite, it was nice that it was close to everything, like buses, skyline and lobby. If I stayed in the little mermaid I wouldn’t have liked the resort because it is VERY far away from transportation and everything really, so be prepared to walk. We had ants in our bathroom every day from the first night. The lobby staff was okay, not as magical as I thought it would be, so be prepared.

Its Disney, what can you say. The property was beautiful, friendly staff, great location. The only downside I had was the food choices in the food court. It would be nice to have more choices, healthier choices.
