I gave this resort four stars for no other reason than the inconvenient property layout. For me, it wasn't perfect. First of all, the resort is beautiful. We had a one bedroom savanna view room. It was very spacious and provided beautiful decor and ample amenities. Disney really did think of everything. African carvings throughout, plenty of toilet paper, shampoo, laundry detergent, etc. The one br had a king bed and two sleepers, one a full and the other a single. Our view of the savanna was amazing. Plenty of animals day and night.
The only negative for me was that the layout wasn't really convenient for seniors. I took my mom on this trip and the first room we had was very far from the lobby and pool area. So, we had to move the car each time we wanted to go to the pool. We were moved the next day to a room close to the lobby. While this was much better, the pool is also not very convenient. You have to walk down the hill to get to it. I just found the layout not to be conducive to seniors. The pool area also seemed very small for a resort of this size. Further, I wish that Disney would have made walking paths so that everything didn't feel so tight.
Those are my personal beefs. Nothing too bad, just observations.
Everything else was great, including of course, the Disney service.
