I was overwhelmed by the abundance and variety of animals we saw throughout our 2 day stay, but was very underwhelmed by the food choices both at the resort - especially at the pool. When I go to a resort and spend the kind of money I spent for my room I expect snacks/lunch by the pool and cocktails served to me. You shouldn't have to dress, pool your kids from the pool (single parent) to walk all the way up to the restaurant to get a grab and go meal. Why isn't food and beverage (at Disney's already exorbitant prices) delivered to your lounge chair? Moreover, when we checked in @ 2pm only one of the several restaurants were even open. We opted to take the Disney Shuttle to Disney Springs for more options. ****Please note that because of the animal's proximity to the Disney fireworks this resort is 15- 20 minutes by Disney bus to MK, Epcot, Disney Springs etc. so prepare accordingly.

Allergy friendly chefs!
I went to have appetizers in the bar and was concerned about cross contamination. The server made arrangements for the allergy chef to come and talk w/me on food prep and was super knowledgeable and understanding. Got a great meal and had no allergy issues. Appreciate their going above and beyond for me.

Awesome stay
Such a great place to stay. The beds were so comfy and everything so clean. We saw zebras, giraffes, ostriches, zebras and other animals outside our hotel balcony. My only is is, I wish they had elevators in more than one place. We had to walk sooo far to get to them. Besides that, it was awesome
