    We've always had great experiences at the Airport Hyatt - love that it is connected to the airport and it is a really nice hotel. The bellman will take your luggage directly to the Mears counter for you the next morning.

    Not sure if you are staying on property or not but the last few times we've gone to WDW we've stayed the first night at a moderate on property before changing over to the Poly...you could also stay at POP/AS for about the same you would pay for a nice airport hotel - that way you wake up already at Disney and they handle your luggage transfer from one resort to the other while you are out enjoying the parks...

    The Hyatt would be a great hotel to stay in at the airport, but it's $199 a night! We arrive at 1:00 am, so we are pretty much in the same boat. We are staying at the Marriott for $69. It has an indoor/outdoor pool and 24 hour airport shuttle. I've never stayed there, but I've been told it's nice.

    biddingfortravel is a good PL resource. You should be able to get a 3* hotel (AFAIK the 3* hotels all have 24 hour shuttle service) for under $50. People used to get them for $35-40 but I think the accepted price has gone up a little.

    We did Priceline for our upcoming trip and got the Holiday Inn Select for $55. I would have loved the Hyatt but we had to book two nights as we are flying in at 6am. We needed a guaranteed early checkin as we will need to get to bed right away. Flying all night........... The Hyatt wanted over $200 a night and the other hotels were close to that also, so Priceline worked for us. I think all the area hotels, have nice pools and a shuttle.

    Good luck,
    Jenn

    Jenn most hotels won't guarantee an eary checkin unless you have a reservation for the previous night, really a very late checkin. If you book through PL you have no guarantee you'll get a room early. Reserve the previous night, check in over the phone before you fly out and you'll have your room at 6am otherwise if the hotel is sold out you may not get a room before normal checkin.

    The pools are fine, normal hotel pools but not the type of elaborate themed pools you find in the resorts. The 3* hotels all have 24 hour shuttles but I think one or two of the 2.5* hotels have shuttles that don't run 24 hours a day.
