Positive Reviews

Excellent location near parks

Gaylord Palms is just a ten-minute drive to Disneyworld and the resort even offers a complimentary shuttle to the park's main gates. Furthermore there are other theme parks, golf courses and several attractions very close by so you can enjoy a peaceful environment at the hotel without being isolated.

On-site conference centre

The resort has over one hundred different meeting/event rooms and venues right on site, as well as catering services and even wedding planners. This and the various restaurants and activities around the resort make it a huge convenience for anyone wanting to host an event at the hotel.

Fun for the whole family

From the arcade/game room to the water park with its tree-house playground and water slides, there is plenty for the kids to get up to while staying at the resort. There are also such amenities as the gym and spa and an adult-only swimming pool with a bar and cabanas for when the grown-ups need a little quiet time.

Negative Reviews

Extra costs for parking

There is ample space for vehicle parking whether you choose self-park or use of the valet service, however it's important to note that both options incur an additional daily fee.

Other extra costs are also quite high

Aside from the room price and parking if you need it, there is also a daily resort fee which covers such amenities as complimentary water bottles in the room, internet access and the Disneyworld shuttle. The many events for example the ICE show also attract extra costs.

General problems of a large hotel

Given the size of the resort and the number of people it accommodates, there can be a few issues such as long distances to walk between parking and rooms or other facilities, very busy restaurants; particularly the café as there aren't many other breakfast options, etc.
