Pluses - This is one of the Disney resorts everyone should stay at once. We had the Savanna view, Jamba House, with bunk beds. It is absolutely amazing to wake up, go on the balcony and see animals roaming close by. The pool area is very nice. There are tons of activities for kids on the premises. My wife commented that even though we were at Disney we probably didn't need to leave the property. The staff is very friendly. The fitness center is unheard of for a center inside somewhere you stay.
Minuses - The room was very very small. The lighting in the room was very dim. The shower/bath was small. I expected a much larger room given what it costs. I had the same problem as the previous reviewer in that the in-room Wi-Fi disconnected after about two minutes every time I tried to use it which basically rendered it useless. We were testing the Fast Pass + so it was pretty important we be able to get online, and also wanted to book another trip before we left and I could do very little online in that regards with the Wi-Fi. The room was "musky" - it seemed very humid and damp no matter where we set the temperature.
Overall, I enjoyed this stay despite the minuses. I would not stay here again however, mostly because there are so many other options to choose from, whether its a Disney resort or another property. I would highly recommend staying here at least once though, if only for the experience.
