Who is this is resort best for?

This resort is for you if you LOVE animals and the Animal Kingdom Park. It is also great if you want one of the deluxe resorts, but the deluxe prices are a little too much for you. This is going to be one of the less expensive deluxe options. It is one of the most beautiful resorts Disney has to offer, and has some of the best foods that you can get at a resort.

The downside?

This resort is not walking distance to any of the parks. Your only transportation option is going to be the buses. That being said, it is a dedicated bus route (meaning you don’t share the bus with any of the other resorts). While I noted above that the restaurants here are amazing, it is important to note that the food is African. If you have picky eaters, or simply aren’t in to African food, you might not appreciate it as much.
