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.
