We stayed here July 28 - Aug 5, 2014. We were very happily surprised at the beauty and detail of this hotel. It is truly top notch. I have stayed at many other Disney hotels and this is by far the most beautiful. No detail was spared.

I have been in more than 10 disney resorts and this is the one for me!!! The lobby is great, the grounds amazing and the rooms are comfy and luxurious if you can go for the the Savannah view. The pool area is big and for all ages and the hot tubs have amazing views. The restaurants are just OK... More

A great resort. Must get a Savanna view. So amazing to wake up to see the animals every morning. Transportation to all parks, etc. is wonderful. Service is great. One of our travellers forgot her meds. We had replacement within hours! Try that in Canada! Ha

I love all the Disney resorts. It's quite difficult for me to say which is my favorite. I do love Animal Kingdom Lodge. As most reviewers have mentioned, the amenities are top notch. The lobby is enormous & fascinating and there are usually activities to participate in. The rooms are spacious (my opinion here is different from other travelers) and... More

Disney's animal kingdom is a great place for rides and to see some wonderful animals. We loved the rain forest cafe and the Everest ride was fun too. It's a wonderful place to visit. My favourite part of animal kingdom is the water ride it was fantastic.

I stayed at the Animal Kingdom Lodge with my sisters for a long weekend. We splurged for a savannah view and concierge's level. We were met at the front desk and escorted to the concierge lobby for check-in complete with Mimosas. Our room was nice but nothing extraordinary until you went on to the balcony. We loved having the savannah... More

So, we have been dreading this trip since the day our oldest child said, "Mommy, when will we go to Disney World?". And I have to say, for the most part, we were wrong. It wasn't that bad. It wasn't amazing and it's crazy expensive, but not near as bad as we thought. The hotel - on first look -... More

Second time we stayed at Animal Kingdom and loved it. Love seeing the animals and especially the okapi which is really rare find in any zoo. Staff was excellent and helpful in every way possible. There were a couple of issues that might be a hassle the longer you stay at the resort. 1) main lobby is usually far away... More

I have two boys 4 and 7, they loved this place. My youngest loved hunting down all the animals on each different savannah. We had our room right next to where the giraffes were fed, so it was great to see them every evening. We also had several ostriches very close. We got some great pictures. The pool was pretty...

This review is for the Jambo House of the Animal Kingdom resort. Our experience there was VERY disappointing to say the least. Before I go on, I need to say that we were upgraded after some events on our first day at the parks, so while this review is giving the resort an Poor grade, I need to clarify that... More
