The original Disney hotel remains a must-stay for the serious Disney-phile.
This large, legendary hotel has undergone a major renovation to keep it up to speed with some of the resort complex’s other options. However, it still retains the spellbinding atmosphere that has long entranced Disney fans young and old. In other words, if you and your family want your Magic Kingdom experience to extend to your hotel, this is the place to stay. Not only will you be able to walk to the park or even travel by monorail to and from it, but within this classic mid-century modern building you'll enjoy Disney movies, a special Disney TV channel, character-themed amenities in the bathrooms and displays of a host of Disney-themed artifacts and memorabilia from days of yore. There are also shops, entertainment centers and shuttle service to the park. Guest rooms are fairly standard in décor, with simple pine furniture, beige wallpaper and floral bedspreads. All have convenient amenities such as refrigerators, hair dryers and televisions, and upgraded concierge level rooms also come with DVD players, complimentary movies, continental breakfast and nightly turndown service.
