Stay away!

I would never recommend anyone stay here. My mom and I selected this hotel specifically because we had La Nouba tix for Mother's Day and we thought it would be nice to stay out there so we could enjoy all that is Disney because she was visiting. We were told at check in transportation to Downtown Disney came every 20 minutes. We checked in at 2:30. We went down to wait for a bus at 3:45. The bus came at 4:30. It stopped 6 times and we ended up with what must have been 100 or more people on the bus, standing room packed to capacity, including about 5 boys under the age of 6 standing in the very front of the bus. We arrived at Downtown Disney at 5:35, and my mom (who is 66) and I then had to speed walk the length of DT Disney to get to the show, where we were exhausted. Our $11 cab ride back took 8 minutes. We only had 3 days to share and the bus experience ruined a big part of one of those days, and when I asked the front desk staff to do something about it before I checked out, no one even returned my call, which is totally unacceptable.
