Ah, ok. I take it from several of those (long walk, noise issues) you were in a mermaid room. The master bedrooms in the larger suites have better noise reduction. People sleeping in the main living area can definitely hear hall activity.

As for the food, people are either in the love it or hate it camp it seems. I liked pretty much everything I tried, but I'm easy. Most seem to agree with you that the service at Landscape is confused and crowded.

Magic Bands issue must have been reallllly annoying (that would make me NUTS), but not a fault of the resort itself per se, but of the program.

As for the rooms, I hear the mermaid rooms feel a tad cramped.

Checked in Tuesday late morning and it was a breeze for me.

Sorry you had such a tough time!

Based on where we've been. None were really "bad", we'd stay at all of them again, so I just put them in order of preference.

1. POR
2. CSR
3. All-Star Movies
4. All-Star Sports (we happened to stay here during some sort of event with throngs of teens everywhere)
