    If I ever decide to go off-site again (and I know I will, better some Disney than NONE ;) )I will definitely try this place. My children saw the pool in a picture and want to try it!

    glo,

    I just wanted to add that although it was too cold to use the pool I had an incredible view of it and yes, it is incredible! I had to promise my son that we'd come back when it's warmer because it looks like a fun place, not just a place to swim!

    Sorry, Namesake!

    I remember when I was new to the boards how I HATED it when it seemed like everyone was talking in initials and I had NO EARTHLY IDEA what they were talking about....

    Who knew I'd end up one of those people... ;)

    that HIFS sounds great---the thought of having a
    King size bed sounds wonderful.....so my question
    is what kind of a drive is it to the parks each
    day? We loved the bus transportations so much that we parked the car and did not move it until
    the day we left to go home. My hubby (the one I
    had to talk into staying on the world)now wont go
    off site because he loved the parks and how easy
    it was to hop on a bus and go anytime of the day--
    but the idea of sharing a double bed with him versus a King has me wondering. :D

    They have scheduled shuttle service; however we did not use it. We loved having our car there and being able to come and go as we pleased. The drive to the parks is no longer than the drive from some of the resorts. HIFS is pretty much right outside the main gates to the WDW property. I bet it didn't take us more than 10 minutes tops to get from our hotel to the parking lot of the parks. It's nearest to Downtown Disney and furthest from MK. If you're looking at a map of Disney and MK is at the top in the middle, HIFS is at the bottom to the right.

    I stayed there in December and was AMAZED at how easy the drive into WDW was. NO TRAFFIC whatsoever. A couple right turns, and we were in. On WDW property literally in a couple minutes.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Hi, Can you help clear something up for me. i have my resevations for feb. & using the BOGO I was able to save four nights. (called back twice because I couldn't believe this) Then I noticed on my coupon it states begin your stay. Thurs.,fri.,sat.or sunday. I noticed that your vacation began on a tuesday also. Did they give you any trouble about that? Please let me know.
    Thanks, GinaºOº p.s. Your post are very helpful.. I was worried about staying off property but I can't wait to go now! ºoº
