Linked to the Waldorf Astoria by a convention hall and set in 482 mostly unbuilt acres, the hotel has rooms that lack balconies, which is a real bummer, but it’s on Disney turf, which counts for a lot. Kids eat free for breakfast and dinner, which is fortunate considering how expensive the restaurants are. The 3-acre pool area is done in contemporary stonework—a bit like riding a lazy river in a hotel bathroom—and is abuzz with cocktails and activities. Overall, it’s a fine place to disappear but it’s too large and corporate to be romantic, although it does qualify for Early Entry to the Disney parks. And that resort fee! Bring a car and you’re paying $75 a night on top of the room rate! Resort fee warning: $45/night.
