I agree with everything Dana said. We love AKL for all those reasons. Its like being transported. Its a wonderful place to stay to get away from the whole theme park crowd.
We spent a few days just relaxing around the resort itself last trip. The pool is quite large and one of our favorites.
The buses are direct to the parks and the restaurants are wonderful. Mara is a great QS and Boma for breakfast and dinner is a treat. Jiko for special dinners is one of WDW’s best if you get a chance to go.
There is nothing better than sitting on your balcony watching those animals if your lucky enough to have a savannah view. If not, sit on one of the many common viewing areas to really enjoy them all.
The lobby, its decor and music played throughout the resort can really pull you in the magic of this place.
You will have a great time. We have stayed here several times. I would request a room on the Zebra trail if possible. Have a super time!:happy:
