I was at a conference the week before my mom had the family reunion at Disney World. This hotel was within walking distance of many inexpensive restaurants, had washers and dryers, a nice pool, a microwave and a small refrigerator in the room and offered free breakfast. There was also a free scheduled shuttle to Disney in the morning. I think it was an excellent alternative for a family, especially one with older kids, to the more expensive properties within the park. It also avoids parking fee charges.

I say older kids because those with little ones might want to come back to the hotel to nap because the shuttle only operates if there are people who want it
