Virgin rating

The hotel

Part pit-stop for theme park adrenaline seekers, part luxury hideaway. The Waldorf Astoria has something around every corner to keep you relaxed and entertained. Take a dip in one of the pools, visit the spa and relax in the Jacuzzi, or even have a round of golf on the 18-hole course. Kids are kept busy at the kids’ club, and that’s all before you even think about those famous theme parks. Walt Disney World Resort is a short drive away, and by being a guest here, you get extras thrown in like extra magic hours and free transportation to and from the parks.

To be fully open and honest this stay was my welcome back stay from a stay that happened last year where we were attacked by wasps on the hotel balcony. Initially I thought the stay was great and my room was nice and the pool was great, although the Bull and Bear restaurant was extremely uncomfortable and was a horrible experience, when I left the hotel my stay turned into an even more horrible experience. I opened my sun roof on my car when I left and went to lunch and tried to close it, it would not close and looking further their were fingers prints all over the sunroof where someone forced it closed. There was liquid spilled all over the floor or my passenger side and a water bottle in the back seat that did not even belong to me as no one rides in my car and I don’t drink that brand. Something happened to my car while in Valet and it is very sketchy and has me very upset. Hopefully someone from the hotel contacts me about this as I want to know what happened with my car.

Everything about this hotel was great. The food was delicious. The service was prompt & abundant. The room was clean & beautiful with a view of the Disney fireworks at night. Lobby was nicely decorated with nice artwork.
