This is an African lodge-style resort set amidst a 43-acre wildlife preserve. The resort offers authentic African-inspired architecture and features a semi-circular kraal African-village landscape popular in Africa which offers expansive views of the surrounding savanna and its many animal inhabitants. The thatched ceilings, large beams, hand-carved golden-tone furnishings, real African artifacts and vast mud fireplace in the main lobby surround guests as they enter, and plunge them into the inimitable spirit of Africa. Just outside the main lobby, an elevated rock platform, the Arusha Rock, offers up-close glimpses of the animals and a panoramic view of the sprawling grounds. In addition to animals, guests can see thousands of indigenous African shrubs and grasses, including the copperpod, the most recognised of Africa's canopy trees. All in all, the scenery paints a picture reminiscent of the unspoiled African grasslands. Guests can savour authentic African cuisine at the resort's 2 award-winning restaurants, Jiko - The Cooking Place and Boma - Flavors of Africa.Disney's Magical Express offer free airport shuttle to and from Orlando International Airport, luggage delivery and airline check-in (for most airlines) for guests staying at a Disney resort.
