Maximum capacity for each room is 4 or 4 plus a small child user the age of 3 in a crib.    Maximum capacity for rooms with a king bed is 2.  Each room features brightly colored theming and offer a small refrigerator, nightstand, wall mirror, armoire, table and 2 chairs, an open closet area, wall safe and a vanity with a single sink that is separate from the bathroom area.

The 1960s and 1970s areas are considered the “preferred” areas of the resort, are the closest to the main building, Classic Hall, and are offered at a higher nightly rate than the 1950s, 1980s and 1990s area.  If you prefer a quiet area with less traffic, the 1990s is ideal.  The 1980s and 1990s area also offers a smaller and much quieter Computer pool area.

Pools Take a refreshing dip in either one of three themed pools that are overflowing with fun.  The Hippie Dippie Pool is the main pool at the resort and is located in the center of the 1960s area and Classic Hall.  Enjoy a splash from the past surrounded by hippie flower water jets or let the kids splash in the separate kiddie pool located just behind the main pool.

Located in the 1950s area of the resort is the 144,000+ gallon Bowling Pin pool.  And, located at the 1980s and 1990s areas is the Computer Pool, where guests can cool off to some of the coolest computer components of those decades.   Unlike some of the other resorts on the Walt Disney property, this resort does not offer any water slides or hot tubs for its guests.
