The Marriott, Sheraton, Hampton, etc all just 1 mile from the airport run around $100.00/night give or take.

IMO...the value/convenience of staying at the Hyatt MCO took a hit when DCL stopped checking you in for the cruise at the airport. It's still convenient, but as much as before. And at the price tag it usually carries...other options may be better when getting in to MCO fairly early in the day. If you're arriving at MCO late (I would say dinner time or later), it's still probably the best option.

Last Minute Travel

I saw that a one-night charge is applied if reservation is canceled three days prior to reservation stay. Can you get a full refund if room is canceled earlier than that?

Wait.. Is this true? On our last cruise in 2012 we stayed at the Hyatt mco then in the morning went downstairs, checked in for the cruise, we're given a boarding pass (group 2) and took ME to the port where we just waited until we were called

If there is no check in at MCO anymore then what are the advantages to staying there?

I actually just booked a room on my points there. When I spoke to the reservation operator, they stated it was Hyatt's policy that you need cancel 72 hrs before your scheduled stay in order to recieve a refund (goes for points too.)

If you book one night through lastminutetravel.com, there is no way to cancel and get your money back. If you book multiple nights, you may be able to get all but one night's fee back, depending on when you cancel.

Clicking through the links already posted on this thread, I found my old post that explained how to know for certain that you will be booking the Hyatt.

Requoting here:

You'll need 2 browser windows open

Browser 1
Search on lastminutetravel.com for your city/dates
Click on or hold your cursor over the Book It box
In the middle of the URL you will see HotelID= (take note of these numbers)

Browser 2
Go to their parent site Tourico Holidays
In the URL replace what is currently there with the number you found above
If you book through the lastminutetravel link, this is the hotel you will get

The Hyatt MCO is ID 2825

Disney stopped cruise check-in at the airport some time ago (I know it was not available by December of 2012). Now the desk opens around 9:15 with first bus around 9:30-9:45. All you get is a bus boarding pass. All check-in for cruise is done at the Port Terminal.

Advantages for staying at the Hyatt MCO, are that they still pickup your luggage in your room and transfer it to the cruise line for you. Other than that, the only advantage is the convenience of the location.

My Mom and I sailed the Fantasy 12/8/12 and I believe we were among the very last to use this service at MCO as it stopped right after that. It was a great service but since I've done it at least four other times without it now it's not that big of a deal, promise. On our 4/12/14 Fantasy sailing we still received boarding group #2 so no worries!

They start checking in at 9:00am and the busses will leave as they fill up. My my Dream sailing in December it was almost 9:25am (first bus) and for my Fantasy sailing 4/14 it was 9:11am we left (also first bus). The advantage I see is the convenience and also you are among the first in the terminal if that matters. They allow the passengers on the busses into the terminal prior to the people waiting outside. Last month we were in shortly after 10am while the others outside were not let in until 1030am. That's not a deal breaker but just mentioning it

Thanks so much everyone for your help....I booked the Hyatt mco airport through last minute travel for $130 instead of $180. I looked it up as was posted here found the correct code 2825 and then called them cuz it said to call for better price. The woman on the phone told me the price is $170 but she could give me a deal of $5 off ... Wtheck....I told her that her website showed $130 and she asked a supervisor who matched it. She then told me the name and address of the hotel even before I booked it!
All done nice and easy

I don't think you can. On our most recent Dream cruise we used the Hyatt. Disney made us bring everyone up to the bus desk along with their photo IDs or passports. They even made us pull every child up there to verify who was getting the bus passes and if they were listed in our cruise booklet. Hopefully others had a different experience.

Is it possible that the Airport Hyatt could be almost sold out a year in advance? I'm booked on the May 2, 2015 Fantasy cruise and the only rooms showing as available for a check-in date of May 1, 2015 are the ADA handicapped accessible rooms. No discounts (AAA, Government) avaliable and the rooms are in the $200 a night range.

Yes. I booked the night of May 2, 2014 and it was sold out two months before when I booked it (I was able to get a room only because I have Hyatt Platinum status which offers a guaranteed room reservation even when sold out). I thought it was rather strange that an airport hotel would be sold out two months in advance. Upon arrival, I discovered why: there was a high school cheerleader conference of some sort that had a bunch of rooms booked at the hotel. It would not surprise me if they're pre-blocked for the same weekend next year.
