Thank you so much for your reply! I will ask for tower 2. So it's further away from the convention center? We were hoping to be able to walk to Red Lobster one night and maybe McDonald's and Walgreens. Did you happen to take the I-Ride trolley while you were there?While we were there they closed at 9:30pm. And security ushered people out. We were there for a family conference of about 5000 attendees. So the pool was always pretty busy. The Terrace pool (roof) was less busy than the grotto at ground level.
I also strongly recommend tower 2. We’d have to wait 15 minutes for elevators because our room was near the convention in Tower 1. We tried to take the steps (we were on the 8th floor) but they stopped at the 4th floor. I asked the desk manager, Tuan, how to use the steps and he said he doesn’t know. The tower 1 steps are confusing to him. I asked what they do in a fire and he said employees direct guests to the right sets of stairs. And he said they did have a fire on the 20 something for and it was chaotic. I don’t doubt that!
The food was good but really expensive. Like same prices as Disney food. It was $24 for my pulled pork sandwich, cole slaw, and drink at The Market. Red Lobster, McDonald’s, and Denny’s are very nearby. A long walk, but super short drive.
