Who is this is resort best for?

This is the resort if you are looking for the classic Disney World experience. This was THE original resort at Disney World. You can walk to the Magic Kingdom. The monorail runs through the building (and can therefore easily take you to EPCOT)! You can see fireworks from some of the rooms, and from the California Grill Restaurant in the resort

The downside?

Many people aren’t crazy about the theming of the rooms at this resort. They find it to be dull compared to some of the others. Also, the pool is nothing spectacular at this resort.
