The Disney resort was very nice, animated, and colorful. The lobby was very bright and the wall was decorated with animated pictures related to the theme of the resort. There was an arcade to the side of the lobby. The resort has a Disney store with park merchandise. There's a food court next to the store with three different food options. You can dine in or take out. I only had dinner. I don't food options for breakfast or lunch. The resort has two pools. The big pool is in the center of the resort. Pool is always packed with kids and adults. Loud music plays during pool hours. The other pool is located by the Little Mermaid buildings. The pool is medium size, more quieter, and less crowded. My room was right in front of the pool and didn't hear noises. I got to the resort around 8:00 A.M. I didn't think I was going to be given a room so early since check in is at 3:00 P.M. The CM worked her magic and I was given a room. The room looked very cute (Little Mermaid theme) and clean. There was a mini refrigerator. I requested a microwave. By the time I arrived at the room, the microwave was already delivered and set up. The CM did mention that the room gets cleaned every other day. When the room gets cleaned, the bed(s) is NOT made. You have to make your own bed. I don't understand why the bed(s) is not made. The Skyliner takes guests to Epcot and Hollywood Studios. The shuttle takes guests to Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom.

I didn't like the smell in the room from the disinfectant and the fact that I couldn't open a window.
