My sister and I just spent a week in July 2017 at this resort to attend Disney's D23 Expo and a few days at Disneyland and California Adventures.
We flew into LAX because it was less expensive than John Wayne Airport, even after adding Super Shuttle. However, if you arrive during rush-hour (like we did), be prepared for the traffic.
We arrived after 4 p.m., so check-in was a snap. The lobby is huge with even a bell desk nearby, although it wasn't manned when we arrived. There were lots and lots of luggage carts to use. We had to get through the sales desk, but after only four firm "noe's", we were on our way.
We stayed in a two-bedroom on the 7th floor (of 14 floors) which gave us a great view of the fireworks and the pool. The 'balcony' was a little fenced ledge for standing only, although it appeared the presidential units may have real balconies. The unit was what we are accustomed to for a WorldMark, everything in the unit worked well, fully stocked with cookery and cutlery and the beds were hard
. The only disappointment with the room was that the AC could not be adjusted lower than 68 degrees and there was only one control for the entire unit. No ceiling or portable fans to help cool the rooms.
We took Uber and Lyft to Vons for groceries and to the Anaheim Convention Center for the expo. We walked to the nearby restaurants of which there are plenty. We used bus #8 for transportation to/from Disneyland, California Adventures, and downtown Disney for $5.50 for an all-day adult pass. The passes are dispensed from a machine in the lobby. The bus picked us up just outside the WorldMark.
There were three small pools or Jacuzzi's in addition to the large main pool. Plenty of towels and chairs/loungers in the mid-afternoon. Families pretty much took over the pools in the evenings. The BBQs were situated in a far corner of the pool area. I really miss the one-hour, adult-only pool time
This is a nice, well-maintained and relatively updated property and I would stay again.
