So many hotels so little time...
So, we've stayed at our fair share of hotels, and we're here to tell you about them. Maybe a hotel YOU have stayed at or will stay at is on this page, so get to scrolling... that means NOW!
The Boardwalk ★★★★★
The Boardwalk is overall my favorite On-Property Hotel. The rooms are big and beautiful, and are easy to get to from the lobby. The hotel service is super nice, and they said good morning to me whenever I would walk down to the little food shop to fill our mugs with drinks and stuff. Now for the highlight of the hotel, the pool! Lately, I haven't been much of a swimmer, as I get tired easy and the chemicals are hard on my throat, but looking back at the experience here, I would jump in right now if I had the chance. The pool is big, and the slide is super fun, and what made the experience even more fun was the fact that we stayed here with my cousins, so we had our own little posse. One of my problems is that being an older kid, it's awkward for me to make friends my own age, but luckily, because I look much younger then I am, I can usually get away with going over by the 10 year olds and throw them diving toys and what not. However, having fun was not an issue at this pool! There were pool parties all the time, and we made fun with one of the lifeguards, whose name escapes me at the moment. We even saw her at Epcot the next year and caught up! I was even tempted to get up and sing something for the crowd, but I chickened out at the last minute. Next time we go though, they better be prepared to hear some little mermaid sung off key. I can't wait till we go back to this hotel.
The Beach Club ★★★★
Let's get this one thing straight, it's a great hotel! It's huge, and located right next to our favorite park, EPCOT! Even though I haven't stayed at The Yacht Club, I can say personally, I would rather stay at THIS hotel, as The Yacht Club gives off one of those "snooty" airs. It seemed like it was "pinkie up" resort if you know what I mean. The beach club is fun and open and friendly! Oh, the marshmallow roasting party is fun, but the price for the smores pack, and the made up campfire songs made me rock back and forth in a corner singing *baby shark, doo doo doo doo doo doo...* But, it was still fun.
Best Western ★★
Oh my goodness do I have plenty to say about this place. Number 1, the room. Okay, some strange stain on the ceiling, chipped paint, and don't even get me started on that stinkin' pull out couch. I'm not a heavy girl, and the thing was sagging like a wet burlap sack filled with OATMEAL. Sorry guys, I couldn't think of any other metaphor, or simili, or whatever you call that kind of grammar trick. Anyways, the cable was horrible. I mean, I get that it was stormy, but we were watching dancing with the stars in the middle of a light rain when the cable went out. I had to spend 2 hours standing a foot away from the tv memorizing that stupid program that they play over, and over, and over, and over again with that annoying woman talking about "Disney Must Do's" Oh and the internet, I tried to blog *scouts honor* (haha i'm not a scout) but everytime I was in the "blogging" mood, the internet was down! Come on people! If I'm not mistakin, it's not storming in space, where the satellite happens to be!!! Oh, then my sister tried to order a simple Grilled Cheese with fries at the pool bar. We sat for at least 30 minutes when my mom went in and asked what was taking so long. Apparently the grilled cheese was at the order window, but was never picked up to be givin' to us. They made us a new one, complete with pickle. *yum* Of course they gave us free Coke, so I guess that made up for it. After all a Coke in Disney is like, 4 bucks. Okay, rant over. Signing off. ** Stars.
The Contemporary ★★★★
Now my knowledge on this place may be a little rusty, as I stayed here back when I was about 9. The Contemporary was my first stay at an on-property resort, and I had gone to Disney 9 times before at that point. I loved this place mostly because it had a very Disney feel to it. The hotels I had stayed at before were very generic and classy, but this place had a vintage Disney feel to it. I loved it even though the rest of my family didn't. They felt that it wasn't tropical enough, and to chrome-and futuristic-y. I love futuristic stuff, so that's most likely why I loved it. They also sold those awesome re-fillable mugs that included slushies, so I would go down every morning and get a cherry slushie, and it would be gone before we even left for the park.
