    Beautiful hotel, with a Northern California design. One of the prettiest at WDW, and they manage to make it look quite a bit like the West Coast, despite its swamp location.

    You'd never guess it from the marketing materials but the bar snacks at The Territory Lounge are fantastic. Go for the wings or flatbread.

    The boat ride to the Magic Kingdom is tempting (and something you should do at least once) but the bus service is definitely faster!

    Room type is a "request" not a reservation. "magical express" = didn't get luggage for 9 hours. Hotel just blamed Delta. Ruined first day but hotel offered nothing, as much as u pay that's ridiculous.

    Worth the price. Get a villa and cook breakfast in your room. Hang out at the pool for a mid-day break from the parks. Roast some marshmallows before hearing out.
