Anyone stayed at the DTD Hilton?

I had looked up information about the DTD Hilton for a friend of mine, and sort of kind of put it on our list of possibilites for May. Has anyone stayed there and can give some insight on it? I know they participate in the EMH and have complimentary transportation to the parks (as well as being able to walk to DTD and use the Disney buses). I know it isn't a Disney hotel, so I was really wondering if it takes away from the "Disney" feel of a vacation? I'm also assuming that you can't get the dining plan if you stay there (which I'm not sure if we are getting or not).

We have stayed there 2 or 3 times. We like the location (especially for trips when we went to Universal as well). Love being able to pop across the street to DTD!

They remodeled it over the last few years (I assume they're done by now, but we never had an issue with noise while we were there). It's really nice.

If you're used to Disney hotels and that feel, it's definitely not that. It's a nicer hotel (for a decent price) in a great location. Period. Other than EMH, which is cool.

We like it. But we generally don't prefer Disney hotels anyway. My DH feels trapped on Disney property, when we can't get off and eat "other" food. ;-P

No, you can't participate in the dining plan at that hotel. I have never used their complimentary park transportation or the buses at DTD from there. We have always driven a car to the parks. But then, you have to pay for parking in the parks, since it's not a Disney hotel.

Let me know if you have other questions. I'm happy to help. :)
