This hotel is further away from the Disney parks than the other "friends of disney" hotels but its still only about a 10 min walk to the front gates and its the only hotel that offers free parking.

Spacious room with big windows that allowed us to watch Dineys fireworks from our room. Clean rooms and bathrooms too! Easy access to Disneyland! Fast check in and check out!

Competent, professional staff with a wonderful attitude. 10 minutes walk to the parks. Both pools perfect for kids. There was construction across the street but it didn't bother us. Room was spacious, comfortable beds and nice bathroom. Good price.

Rooms were clean and spacious for our family of 5. Water park was smaller than it looked on the website but kids aged 6-12 still had a great time on the slides and hot tub. Well stocked market in the hotel was very convenient. In room coffee, microwave and refrigerator were also appreciated. Location to Disney was an easy walk...
