No view

Colorado Springs, Colorado

We paid extra for park view and all we saw were trees and fire pit below so that was disappointing. Check in was a dream. We did early check in and received a text when room was ready which was great. Valet and doorman service made everything better.

Disney fun!

Memphis, Tennessee

A great place to stay. We had the woods courtyard view and overlooked the hotel entrance to the park. The monorail would sail by and we could hear the joy coming from the park. The extra magic hour was awesome! 1 entire hour to basically gave the park to yourself. Clean, friendly and a wonderful spring break vacation!
