Great location, the villas are in great shape despite they are quite old. Very specious rooms and they felt very cleaned. I would recommend to upgrade bathrooms. The main Marriott building has great restaurant options. I would definitely return.

I’ll start with the good. This is a wonderful property and we hope to stay often as a family. The new (to us) waterpark is a wonderful addition and it’s amazing that it’s included with the resort fee. The property is about 10 minutes from Disney which gets you close enough without the craziness and fees of staying on property. The resort pool is beautiful and open late. As a lifetime Platinum member it’s nice that they include breakfast. Just note that it’s free for two people only per room and just the “continental” side of the buffet. There is a fee to upgrade to hot items other than grits of oatmeal. Breakfast wasn’t always included at resorts. ||Now the painful part. Last time I stayed, I was on a prepaid rate. Few thousand dollars. I realized a month later that they also billed me at checkout. I only noticed from my credit card bill and it took several calls to sort out. They were not easy about it. ||This time, I read reviews about bogus fees. I was clear about my reservation and guests at check in. This is not my first rodeo, and I know how to make a reservation for the correct number of guests.||Lo and behold, I looked at my emailed bill before leaving and found a $56.25 fee PER DAY titled “EXTRAPPL”. Easy to confuse as a tax or something, but it’s clearly for “extra people”. Reservation for 4, total guests 4, we were all there at check in and only got 4 wrist bands. What extra people?||Waited in line. Discussed the issue. Was given a fake excuse that my reservation was for 4 adults (wrong). Regardless, what extra people? Took 15 minutes to take hundreds of dollars off the bill. ||We like the hotel. A lot. But this just leaves a sour taste. Maybe I can say “please don’t scam me” in the reservation comments next time?||I’ll be forwarding my comments to corporate as there is obviously a history of this scam. In the meantime, if you’re reading this, please stop this practice World Center Marriott.
