We arrived on a Saturday for an 8 day stay and was greeted at the door by staff from the Yacht Club. The service here is much better than the service we received at other Disney properties (such as Riverside, Port Orleans, or All-Star Resorts). I had requested 1st floor rooms and close to transportation since my father is blind, but they did mess that up. They had my parents on the 1st floor and us on the 3rd floor. I had requested the rooms be by each other so that we could assist my parents if needed. I had checked on our room requests a couple of times before arriving, so it was a little frustrating that it wasn't accurate, but they fixed it right away. We got ajoining rooms on the 1st floor. The rooms were nice and spacious, but certainly not fancy or elaborate. We had a family of 5 in one room and my parents in the other room. The beds were really comfortable and my 5 year old daughter loved sleeping on the day bed. We didn't have any problems with noise or anything. I liked this resort because we were really close to both the bus and the boat transportation, not to mention the pool and the restaurants. We were in rooms 1085 and 1087. The property itself was nice enough; they did add tons of flowers during the week we were there and it brightened up everything so much more! I think they were getting ready for spring :) I think the hotel was very high priced, so that would be my only complaint...not totally sure it was worth twice as much as the cost of Riverside resort or another value resort.
There was some construction on the resort outside, but I didn't hear any noise and had no problems getting around.
The had a very nice gift shop and good restaurants and this resort. The Captain's Grill dinner was fabulous. We had ribeyes and cheese and bacon mashed potatoes. Everyone loved it! Everyone also loved their meal at the Yachtsmen Steakhouse. I liked the Captain's Grill better, however, and the prices were cheaper. The menus at the restaurants are not extensive, so look in advance to make sure there is something you like. We also ate at Cape May's Seafood Buffet; that was delicious as well! Even the food at the Hurrican Hanna's pool restuarant was good.
I like the location of this resort! You can take a boat just right outside your room to MGM studios or Epcot. It was so easy. It does take a little extra time, but is worth it if your feet are tired. We always took to boat to MGM because the bus doesn't go there or to Epcot. Epcot is definitely within walking distance. We ate there several nights and easily walked there each night. My parents took the boat and we met them there. We could even see the Epcot fireworks from the patio off of our room! I think we will stay there again since the location is so convenient.
Check-in and check-out was easy and simple. I highly recommend making all dinner or breakfast reservations in advance or you might be out of luck at the resort! One day the breakfast wait for a sit down meal was almost 1 hour. We had our dinner reservations way in advance, but weren't sure about breakfast. We were easily able to make breakfast reservations while we were there that week. We did also do the Cape May Character breakfast. The food was good and my daughter loved all the Disney Characters that came through.
The pool was awesome at this resort for my 5 year old! She could go anywhere in the sand bottom pool and could touch the bottom. One day she skipped the theme parks all together to just stay back with me and play in the pool while the older kids went on the rides at the theme parks. The older kids did not really use one of the other deeper pools very much, so I don't know how they liked them. They thought the waterslide was fun. The do give out buckets and shovels with the kids meal at hurricane hannas, so your young child will have something to use in the sand.
Overall, great trip. The Disney crowd at this time of the year was HUGE though. It was somewhat tiring to deal with the crowds for 8 days, but I still think it was worth it.
We had two rooms (1085 and 1087) and they were nice and quiet and close to boat transportation and t...
