    I know some people stay there the night before they go away

    we tried it and it was mega expensive and mega hot (too hot to sleep) + the walkway was a LONNNNNG way to terminal 1 (in that case)

    How do you folks who like it make best use out of it? do you just get an early night in the room knowing you can just walk to the checkin the next morning?

    Do you go to the business lounge and have an evening of alcohol watching the planes?

    Sell me on the hotel please because I FEEL like it should be a good idea but last time I just didn't get anything much out of it

    We always stay at Radisson Blu when we leave from Manchester. Keith, come on mate....the walk is easy peasy compared to what you will be about to do at WDW!!!
    We normally call in at the shopping centre for a meal and basically go to bed with our iPads as soon as we get to the room

    We always stay at the Raddison blue when we go from Manchester.... lovely hotel!
    We had a business room last time and took full advantage of using the lounge with free drinks and snacks the night before.

    Mega hot as you say, we only do it because we have to come from the other side of the UK and I like to get as near to the airport as possible, no traffic jams to stress me out.
    Next time though not going to bother with the concierge level, the lounge we hardly used and the snacks were quite missable. We like to have a little picnic in our room from a coolant which we fold up when empty and pack. Plus I like fresh milk in my coffee and lots of it.

    we;ve taken to doing business class the night before we go each time now. the snacks are missable you're right and the lounge closes at 9pm! what's with that! but at least it feels a bit special and we're there ready for checkin the next day

    it helped to know that the movies are free in the business rooms too (no not THOSE movies, the normal ones :p )

    but I LOATHE how hot the rooms are I truly do :(
