Not the happiest place on earth

I think we just had bad luck with the staff who the first day in could not help us with the shuttle for the Orlando Park... They didn´t told us it was a regular bus that stopped outside the hotel so we almost missed it and had to go across the road to get it later on. It would be help full to tell this to people who are not from Orlando, because we were not the only ones lost.

Average hotel at premium price

There was nothing special about the hotel other than its location (very close to Universal). The room could have been cleaner (found mold in the coffee cups). The service could have been better (called for extra towels that were not delivered on two occasions). The food in the restaurant in the hotel was good, but a bit pricey ($70 for breakfast for four). And there was an extra $10/night parking fee that came as an unpleasant surprise.

family trip

The staff was great. But they charge you for parking? That's the first. No free wifi and you get no free breakfast. It ended up being more expensive than I thought it would be.

I have a 16 year old boy and he is more into Universal than Disney. It was so close. He and I walked to Sea World (yeap that close) then again we are New Yorkers, we love to walk. We did not even pay for Sea World Parking.
