Tips From TheMouseForLess Members
TheMouseForLess Interesting Facts about the Resort
Tends to be quieter than Sports and Movies, attracting more adults. The rooms were redone in recent years and have hair dryers, Mickey soaps and shampoo, and a privacy curtain for a dressing area. – Sandra Givens
TheMouseForLess Hidden Treasures
Small garden near Broadway on the side closest to Movies. Sit and sip coffee there or at the picnic tables near Country, where you may see lizards and even the odd armadillo. – Sandra Givens
The photo opportunities are great. We have a great one of the boot in the cowboy section. It looks like it is stomping on my kids. – Amanda D
TheMouseForLess Tips for Romance
For seclusion from others, try the farthest building in the back. They are usually quieter there. – Raven Williams
In the late evening, pick up a cocktail at the bar, then stop and smell the roses at the fountain in front of the Jazz buildings. Very NoLa! – Sandra Givens
I wouldn’t recommend this resort for romantic getaways as it is often noisy and filled to the brim with small children. – Venus Windmiller
TheMouseForLess Tips for Families
If your little one needs a life jacket, don’t bring one with you. They are available in multiple sizes by the pool. Also don’t bring pool toys. Many families at the end of their vacation left them at the pool. – Renee Walker
TheMouseForLess Tips for Large Travel Groups
Get a suite here. They are quite nice. I was skeptical and thought 2 regular rooms would be better, but we were upgraded to a suite in May and it’s really nice having the kitchenette. There is plenty of room for 5 in this suite. – Stefanie in MA
TheMouseForLess Tips for Guests with Special Needs
Make this request for any special need when you book your reservation. Call one-week prior to make sure your request is prominently listed on your form. If you find out when you check in your special need request has not been honored, ask to talk to a supervisor at the front desk. This has happened to me a few times. Once I talk with a supervisor and point out the request was on my original form, they reassign me to a room that meets my needs. – Raven Williams
TheMouseForLess Tips for WDW Newbies
The check out is great, if you don’t have any charges to your room there is nothing to do and if you do have charges they will send you an itemized statement of all your charges and you still don’t have to go up front unless you don’t agree with the charges. It’s great!! – Amy McKnight
Check in early for best room selection. Walk around and look at the huge icons on each building. Visit the other All-Stars and enjoy their icons too. Try to guess the squirt pattern of the Three Caballeros fountain in the guitar pool. Take fewer clothes than you think you need and wash a load while you take a swim. Bring quarters! Movies has a larger food court if you want some variety. – Sandra Givens
Put on your sunscreen! The bus stop has no cover and can be hot on a sunny day. – Renee Walker
Beware of credit card scammers! Several scams have been perpetrated on unsuspecting tourists staying at hotels or resorts in the Orlando area in recent years, including Disney resorts. The first involves a phone call to your resort room in which you are informed that there is a problem with the credit card info you provided the hotel; you are then asked to give your card information again, including name and address. If you receive such a call, inform the caller that you will talk to the front desk personally about the problem and hang up. If you are convinced the call may be legitimate, call the front desk from your resort phone or visit the front desk to inquire. The second scam involves flyers left on your resort room door advertising cheap pizza for delivery. Those who call the number and give the requested credit card info with their order soon find that not only does no pizza arrive, but a huge string of unauthorized purchases show up on their credit card.
TheMouseForLess Tips for Budget Travelers
The toiletries in the gift shop are overpriced. Double check your personal care items before you leave home. –Green Family
Both code discounts and AAA discounts on room only reservations can be booked through your The Magic For Less Travel Agent.
TheMouseForLess Tips for Luxury Travelers
None of the value resorts include full-service restaurants. But if you have a car and are looking for a nice sit down meal the try a short drive to Coronado Springs Resort to dine at Maya Grill or Animal Kingdom Lodge for dinner at Boma or Jiko.
