"Beautiful Resort!"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed June 18, 2018 NEW
We loved the animals! That makes this resort very special. The restaurants are amazing. The views from the room were beautiful. The staff is very friendly, helpful, and professional. The pool is beautiful!! The transportation is prompt and you are able to wait in the shade, even if you choose to use the Disney Buses to get to the parks. The Minnie Vans (Lyft) were wonderful, especially for getting to and from Mini Golf and the Magic Kingdom. Minnie Vans would be great for the water parks as well. This is a very large resort. Our room was not too far of a walk from both the lobby and the pool.

Grandsons and I enjoyed a few days during a summer visit. Nice sitting out on balcony and watching the animals, especially with a cup of coffee in the morning. Room was not huge, but it was clean and comfortable.

Make sure you get a room overlooking the giraffes and zebras. Great to enjoy a cup of coffee on your balcony and watch the animals! With that said, I was surprised that Disney charges $4.00 for coffee!

"Savanna View"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed June 18, 2018 NEW
Stayed Club level with Savanna view. My family enjoyed club level except that the room was quite a bit of a walk away. We chose savanna view for our kids enjoyment. Probably wouldn't choose that next time since there is a walk out area on the lower floor where you can see the animals better. Paying more for savanna just didn't seem worth it since we didn't spend much time in the room. Although our toddler loved waking up and looking out to see animals every morning! The bed base is wood with sharp corners, both my toddlers bumped into them and hurt themselves. Next time I am going to ask if all the beds are the same, I would request a room that doesn't have sharp corner beds for my kids sake. But other than the beds the room was great.

"Great Fun!"

We stayed here over Labor Day Weekend and had a great time. The lobby is beautiful and the grounds are lovely. That being said, the rooms are not very large and the balcony overlooking the animals is quite small - room for a couple of chairs - no table.. We have stayed in many Disney resorts and we felt the room was quite average for the price charged. Reserve a table at Jiko. It was the BEST food we have ever eaten at a Disney Resort.
