The resort seems dated. We stayed in the lion king section. Family suite was spacious however bedding for the Murphy bed was a blanket about as thick as a sheet and pull out couch had no bedding at all. Confirmation stated housekeeping every two days but didn’t happen. I had to call to the front desk on the third say and was told only restock of towels and trash removal would be provided “due to covid”. Felt on our own during our stay. Front desk was always crowded with guests. Too many people in the dining area everything was rushed there. My magic band deactivated on my last day but check out wasn’t until 11:00. I couldn’t pay for my breakfast and had to leave the food to go back to my room for my debit card 😡
