Nice hotel, great view of animals and lovely ambience.Rooms VERY small and some amenities not working. Swimming pool very child friendly, however, value for money not good, can get much better value for money in other Disney resorts and particularly outside of Disney.Read moreLess

Five star fabulous family resort. The hotel is a huge African-themed hotel built around an African Savannah. Most rooms (not pool view or standard rooms) overlook the Savannah. Our kids loved waking up every morning spotting Zebras, Giraffes and Wildebeest. There are free frequent shuttle buses to all the Disney parks, longest journey took us about 20 mins.
The hotel has a few daytime activities for kids if you are having a relaxing day at the pool. Our kids went pelican spotting, played pool games and watched their 'blow up' cinema by the pool on their sunloungers in the evening. Every evening the kids can toast marshmallows till they burst round the campfire - a big hit with our 5 & 7 year old. The Boma restaurant is buffet style with loads of variety - just be sure to book in advance as it can get busy. The quick service restaurant by the pool is great value and has a decent menu. The staff are super friendly, all have different types of stickers to give away, be sure to ask. Our kids brought enough home to give to each kid in their class.
Rooms aren't the most spacious and could do with a bit more lighting (that's the way they are themed) but spotless clean. And of course it's Disney...all 4 parks are fab and the water parks are also excellent, don't miss them out!
We travelled with Thomson - not the best tour operators for service in my opinion - but they get you there and once you are in Florida, WOW!!!Read moreLess
