We checked in yesterday. I love this place! I have always stayed on site but I have to say I don't think I will ever return. Booked though Vacation Strategies a 2 br deluxe and paid $650 for 7 nights. We are in Tower 1 lake view and I see the Epcot ball from the balcony where I'm sitting typing this listening to music from pool (can't hear anything from outside inside the unit). The unit is so nice and soooo big! Here with my fiance and my 2 kids, 11 and 15. They are sharing a room, each with their own bed, we have the master with a king. The master bathroom is huge! The jacuzzi tub is huge and deep and the shower is big, glass doors, no shower curtain sticking to you like in a hotel. Love the 2 sinks, one outside the shower/toilet, very convenient for getting ready. Three flat screen tvs, no fighting! Great kitchen with lots of appliances. I'm not cooking, but so nice to have fridge for drinks, micro for popcorn etc. Balcony is huge with 4 chairs and 2 small tables. We swam yesterday and it was great to throw the towels in the dryer afterwards. We have no complaints at all. My kids were disappointed we weren't onsite, but once we arrived, they were in awe and also agreed to only staying here. Checked in at 1:30, room wasn't ready but got the call within the hour. Picked up keys and was never told to go to get parking pass. Unplugged phones when we got in room and no one has bothered us. Staff friendly. Lots of activities for kids, face painting and ice cream. Last night drove to Poly for Ohana dinner. Quick ride, 10 mins maybe. Rode the monorail and checked out resort Christmas decorations. After dinner sat on the beach (sooo cold!) and watched Wishes next to a speaker to hear the music. Took the boat to Magic Kingdom and stayed till 1 am closing. This morning went to Studios, 4 mins. Took a break this afternoon, everyone is napping right now. Going back tonight for Fantasmic and Osborne lights. Was given a bus schedule. Looked at it, but decided against it as didn't want to be tied to a certain pick up time. Really enjoying our stay so far. Wish is was a little warmer to use the pools but it's so nice not to be sweating in the parks.
