A Truly Magical Place to Stay

I cannot say enough excellent things about this resort. We have stayed at many Disney resorts, but this one blew us away! We ended up spending almost 2 full days just enjoying what the resort has to offer from the amazing pools and water slides to the fantastic dining choices. Many of the activities that we took part in were even free such as cookie decorating and cultural experiences. Our studio villa room was very spacious and we absolutely loved the balcony overlooking the savanna where we could view many animals such as giraffes and zebras. The cast members were so kind and attentive, like we have come to expect at Disney, but there were a few that just went above and beyond to make our stay magical. We will definitely be staying here again during future trips to Disney World.

Animals great, food average

It was a very good stay generally. The animals being visible from the bedroom window was a real highlight for my daughter who loves giraffes. Everything regarding the theme parks is run as you would expect from Disney. The only two gripes would be that it was very random when the room was cleaned. This is not ideal when you have young children who need to sleep in the afternoon. The other thing would be the on site dining. It is incredibly average and expensive for what it is. You are much better off going a short distance down the road to places like Outback and Texas Roadhouse It is half the price and better food.
