The atmosphere was very transportative into the African Continent. The shuttle service was very good and you could get around Disney very easily. My only disappointment was I was not a connoisseur of African and Indian Cuisine although they had American offerings I tended to go off property for dinner. Also, you need to make reservations well in advance of your stay if you want to eat there. The savanna views were great and we spent a lot of time watching the animals. Great place to explore something different.

We requested a king bed and when we got there they said we have none left. So, my husband and I slept in separate beds on our adult only trip. Terrible
