Stayed peak season August 2017. The hotel has loads of great facilities for the kids, particularly the pool and soft play. However, I suspect it was built around the same time as Disney and is starting to show its age.
The weather was unusually good (hot) when we were there and the lack of air conditioning in the rooms made for very restless nights! The rooms are bright and colourful, but again are starting to feel tired.
The courtesy buses to Disney are very frequent, but extremely busy. At peak times, you can expect to be packed in like sardines.
The hotel itself is in the middle of nowhere save for 3 - 4 similar hotels, so food wise beyond Disney, you are limited to the hotel and boy do they take unfair advantage of that. Outside of the happy hour (with huge queues at the bar), I have never paid as much for a pint of standard larger in my life and I include top London hotels in that! Breakfast is poor, the buffet restaurant very, very poor and very, very overpriced. The main restaurant "the Captains Table" is better, but the menu very limited and again, terribly overpriced for what it is. I know you are five minutes from Disney, but you are also in France. I might have tolerated the high prices if the food and drink were excellent, but they were not - a long way from it!
If you have young kids, I'd recommend the hotel overall, but only if it isn't hot and you don't plan to eat or drink there!
