    MiceChat Access OR Internet in Resort Area Hotels

    What's the general situation (and some specific examples if you like) for Internet access in the area's hotels? I've noticed in tourist guides that many of the hotels have "Internet" mentioned alongside things like "refrigerator" and "iron/ironing board".

    I'm guessing most would be wireless? Or are some cabled? Do some hotels offer it complimentary, or do you have to pay? And if you pay is it a once off charge or by the megabyte/minute?

    ?

    The disney hotels offer free internet and the do have a cable which seems to work better than their wireless in the rooms.

    I've stayed at some non disney hotels. I don't recall suing the internet though. One hotel did offer free wireless, but it would not work at all. If the hotel charges for internet it will usually disclose that.

    Re: MiceChat Access OR Internet in Resort Area Hotels

    Though we rarely take a computer with us on our trips to the Resort (hey, we're there to have FUN!), we have experienced a few places that offer int access.

    Diddo the experience with the Disney Hotels.

    The Residence Inn on Harbor has free cable inside the rooms and it works great.

    I hope not. Why would you want to sue the internet? What did the internet ever do to you?

    I stayed at Best Value Astoria Inn and Suites‎ for a whopping $42 a night and one of the services was free wireless Internet. All you have to do is ask at the front desk for the password.

    That's how I was able to post about my interview! and not go insane from lack of Internet access

    Re: MiceChat Access OR Internet in Resort Area Hotels

    For me it is a must to have internet access, I like to get back from the park and do a little surfing. I am what you would call an internet addict and it makes me feel better when I can access my email and amazon and Woot and spoofee and micechat and make sure I am not missing anything.. I personally have not stayed a hotel in a long time that did not have some kind of internet access.

    me too!! That's why I made sure to get a phone that could access the internet and I bring a lap top.

    on my last trip every time I brought my phone out I was asked who i was texting. i would say, no one and then it was "are you on the internet!"...oh well. At least it's not as bad as other addictions.

    Re: MiceChat Access OR Internet in Resort Area Hotels

    Thanks guys.

    OldSchoolMickey: I haven't seen the Residence mentioned as yet. Will look into that.

    Elly: The Super 8 is my bottom on the barrel budget choice, depends on how much money I manage to save gets allocated to accommodation. I keep wavering between, "I only need a comfortable room as I'll be spending all the time in the Parks." And, "I'm there for two weeks I need a bit of comfort, and a fridge, internet, ironing board, laundry..."

    Tj9991: Thanks for the recommendation, I'll look into the Astoria Inn and Suites as well.

    So many choices... so little information
