Great time at the resort thought we did not have much time to explore because we were at the parks most of the day. There were plenty of activities for kids and grown ups to do.

A MAGICAL DREAM COME TRUE!!! From the moment we arrived, to the check-in...DISNEY took great care of us. They provided a room with a view of animals (in the corner, but better than no view) -- so exactly what I asked for. The room was perfect and clean!! When we needed something they were right there to bring it to us!! Plus, thanks to Steve @ Boma buffet and WDW for dinner taken care of....thanking me for my Military Service!! MOST APPRECIATED!! Thank you!! :))

Fabulous lobby, fun African theme, great staff, nice pool area with water slide. The room was clean and well appointed but small Restaurants good. I thought it was really tacky that they charged us a hidden parking fee of $25 a day!
