I love my INCREDIBLE family!!!
Join Date: Jan 2005
Location: Appleton, WI (most of the year). AKV is our "new" home!
We've done these one night rooms twice while on Disney cruises. Once back in 2002 and again in 2008.
In 2002, we booked through Atlantis Harborside (a time share area of Atlantis). It was the cheapest of the options then. I think we paid about $135 and there were 4 of us.
The room was gorgeous! Full kitchen with washer and dryer, extremely large bathroom, etc. After our FUN day at the waterpark, we all showered there and washed our swim suits!
In 2008, we booked through Atlantis, in a Tower Room (at that time, it was cheaper than Comfort Suites). This time, we really didn't spend any time in the room.
One of my fondest memories of being totally relaxed is the hour or so I spent on the lazy river. I just kept thinking "this is the life!"
A tip I have - order room service sandwiches the night before and bring a collapsible cooler with you and bring the sandwiches.
We are cruising again in April but not going to do the Atlantis this time. It's just getting too expensive!
