Probably the only downside to the place is that it is literally in the middle of nowhere on the Disney property. Still, they make up for this fact~!
-- ANIMALS! Zebras, Ankole Cattle, Giraffes, etc. right outside your hotel room. Awesome!-- FOOD! Boma and Jiko have to be two of the best restaurants on property. The smells from Boma when you walk into the lobby of the hotel at lunch and dinner time are unforgettably delicious. -- THEME! The hotel is thoroughly themed and authentic in many, many ways. It's the Disney version of Africa...period.-- POOL! It has the largest and coolest resort pool on property with a great slide, walk-in edge and pool-side bar and quick serve restaurant.
Those are the main reasons, but I have more!
