... first two days; the 15 and older jumpers compete the second two, and then the Grand World's Championship is the last day. Those who qualify from the first four days compete on Saturday. It was an exciting day of competition. Bryn did well in her single's routine, and she came in 8th in her division. Good job, Bryn!

Illuminations

A travel blog entry by jimdol

Wednesday......Epcot

We has decided to go back to Epcot today, mainly because we hadn't seen the Illuminations last time and as I love fireworks I feel cheated if I don't get to see them, Disney do fireworks so well. We were also going back as we hadn't done Test Track or seen much of the World Showcase and we also had to try and find Belle, the last of the Princesses from our book.

We intended heading to Epcot mid afternoon, so had ...

    Not a bad place to stay

    from

    We stayed at this hotel in Sept 2004 for two weeks on an Orlando theme park holiday.

    Good Value And here is a huge travel tip !

    from

    Everything was great And if you want to go to Disney and don't want to deal with a shuttle bus stopping at many hotels with kids and stressed parents , do what we did ! Take the Getty transportation service which works with the hotel ( Lincoln Town Cars etc. ) for 7 BUCKS ! Yeah thats right, and go to Downtown Disney which is 2 miles away. THEN get on a FREE Disney shuttle bus to any Disney location . We took the bus back to the Disney Tix and Transportaion center where you can get a bus or Monorail ANYWHERE! You can do the same for the return or get a cab which is about the same to get back to the hotel. You will have a much more STRESS FREE and Private experience believe me.

    A nice hotel in a quiet situation.

    from

    We stayed here twice on a recent trip and had nothing to complain about. A large, modern hotel with a good choice of nice rooms. Two large heated swimming pools, sauna and fitness room. Business centre with free use of computer.

    Situated in a quiet area with easy access and near to many eating places. However, you will need your car even for short journeys as they do not seem to cater for pedestrians around here and you cross road junctions at your peril. Hardly a problem for domestic travellers who are used to using their cars whenever, but we Brits would like to walk occasionally.

    Good place to stay

    from

    I booked this hotel through -------------- for $59 per night. It was well worth that but I wouldn't pay over $100 which is what the hotel website wanted. The hotel was fine. It seemed to be a slow week so it wasn't very crowded. Room was clean and staff was friendly.

    It's fine for the price

    from

    I stayed here on the recommendation of a friend in mid-January, 2005, for five nights. I was given a room on the ground floor facing the main entrance parking lot. After touring the hotel, I asked to be moved to a room facing the inner courtyard and was accommodated the next morning. I was given the room key to the second room and allowed to move my belongings at my own pace. Both rooms were very clean, not only in smell but in appearance. I asked for non-smoking and there was no trace of anyone having smoked in the room. There was no mold or mildew in the bathrooms. The sheets smelled slightly of bleach, which to me is pleasant. The beds and pillows were very comfortable and I was able to sleep soundly through the night.

    Thumbs up

    from

    In Feb 2004 we had our annual sales training at the Marriot. The sleeping rooms were clean and comfortable. The food was good, the staf were all friendly and courteous. The hotel seemed to be more business oriented and less family oriented (although there were quite a few families on the property) they have wireless internet in the lobby. On the whole, I would return, good value for money.

    Brilliant

    from

    Stayed here for two weeks in November. Found the staff very friendly, rooms really clean. Our room had a balcony which was really nice will be staying here again next year.

    Not much privacy

    from

    Overall its a nice place but: Walls are paper thin. You can hear a person snoring in the next room, and can hear clearly any conversations next door... which means your conversations are being heard by someone else also.

    A Nice Place to Stay

    from

    We booked this hotel over the internet and frankly, we were nervous about it! No need to be--we stayed there for 4 nights before moving to the Disney Swan resort for 3 nights, and the Courtyard was a MUCH better value for the money. It's nothing "fancy" (actually, the Swan wasn't either, beyond the attitude), but our room was clean (as was the pool, which was also not crowded!), and the breakfast buffet had a good selection--we got our money's worth. The only "bad" aspect was the free shuttle to the Disney parks. The ride can get kinda hairy when there is standing room only and you have to stop at a bunch of other hotels.

    Horror

    from

    Worst hotel stay in my life. #1 Came back one day and found the door to our room wide open. As if that's not enough...#2 Walls are paper thin, can hear "late night" activities of other room, as well as incessant door slams in the morning#2 Every touch with a hotel employee left a bad taste, from front desk worker to waiter/waitress at breakfast buffet... does not even meet the lowest of minimal levels of courtesy... the woman who checked us in and out, same person, was the only exception, but that's a .100 batting average...
