The wow factor starts as soon as you enter the lobby. It's like walking into another world with the animals walking around the savanna. Disney never fails to surprise us when we arrive at one of their locations. We had a great time here and the resteraunts were good with a great selection on offer. Disney dinning plan is a... More

We stayed in April of 2014 to celebrate our anniversary. We stayed in a Club Level room. The resort was beautiful. There was some construction but we hardly noticed it. You can stand out on your balcony and see animals any time you want to. Be sure to bring binoculars so you can see all of them up close. The... More

Stayed here in a DVC studio for three nights. Have stayed at multiple disney properties before and really enjoyed the Animal Kingdom Lodge as well as the park. Our four year old son participated in the onsite activities and enjoyed the pool. We all enjoyed the views of the animals as well as the overall setting of the property. Service... More

We stayed at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge (Jamba House) with one of the Savannah views. We booked a club level room to ensure a good view of the animals. The club level rooms are the same as all other rooms. You get escorted upstairs to the club level lounge for check in. You would think that would be a good... More

5/2002 This was a fun stay the lodge is incredible and very big, I was one of the first thousand people to stay here one of the many perks of been a travel agent. The paint was still fresh and the rugs in my room were still new, the electrical components still had the protective film on them and the... More

We have just returned from a 10 night trip to Animal Kingdom Lodge from the UK. Having stayed at the resort previously three years ago in a'standard' view room overlooking the car park, we were lucky enough to be upgraded to a Savannah (Arusha) view room this time due to an incorrect room allocation on arrival (we had been allocated...

Sitting on the balcony now watching giraffe wander by as I write this review is an amazing experience not found at many resorts. We booked a 2 bedroom 3 bathroom villa through the DVC rental store which was fantastic value ( half the price of going through Disney accommodation and they went above and beyond with advice and suggestions).

Stayed here after returning from the Disney Bahamas cruise (awesome by the way). The hotel, minus the animals, is just an average hotel. Rooms were about as nice as a Sheraton or Marriott, but overpriced. However, if you want to feel like you are on the African savanna and see a wide assortment of animals, it is well worth it....

Just returned from a four night visit to WDW, our first staying at AKL. The Jambo House lodge is a sight to behold. It will take you a number of days to take in all there is to see and take notice of inside and out. It is done in 'African' decor with articles from different countries showcased. The lobby... More
