Pros: This moderate resort offers additional features that the others do not including a convention center, fitness center and a salon and spa. Sometimes the conventions held here can mean quieter pools and buses to the parks. If you’re looking for luxuries such as these, this resort is a great choice for a family on a budget. They also offer more room choices and can accommodate larger families with 3 different options for suites.
Cons: It is a larger moderate resort that hosts conventions. Due to this reason it is often busy and availability can be limited during popular times and when conventions are held there. This resort also seems to have less of a Disney theme and feels more like a standard hotel room. Due to the large size of the resort, you could potentially be walking more than at the other resorts to reach the food court and main pool. This resort is also under major construction. They are currently building a 15 story building so those with little ones who nap might want to think twice before staying here while under construction. This location of this resort is near Animal Kingdom and a little further away from the other parks.
