That hotel has been on the re-flagging merry-go-round of brands for years. If I remember the order correctly (reverse chronological back to 2001), it was the Crowne Plaza, Orlando Vista - an Ascend Hotel (Choice), Orlando Vista (independent), DoubleTree Club.

I used to go there to eat when I worked at Disney World in 2004ish because they had a Au Bon Pain as the lobby restaurant. It was the DoubleTree Club then.

It's in a decent location, although there is a lot of traffic on that road (12490 Apopka Vineland Rd - aka State Road 535). There are plenty of chain restaurants within walking distance.

Zero chance that this hotel will have Extra Magic Hours.

The WDW Good Neighbor Hotel program is really just a marketing program that lets hotels sell Disney tickets at the hotel Front Desk or Concierge. There are currently 20+ Good Neighbor Hotels.
