Decided to splurge for premium hotel this year. No disappointment. Well a couple, pool closes at 10 pm across all disney hotels now. The restaurants are popular but not my taste. Finally, the bus stop is a looong walk from some of the rooms. But. You have giraffes and zebras outside your window. Clean large rooms with balconies, first class... More

The Good - Animals in easy view every morning The Bad - The meal plan The Scoop - We stayed on the Savannah facing side. It has a small watering hole where many of the animals, especially the giraffes came to drink. We were facing the winter sun rise which made a great back light for animal shots. A 200mm... More

Disney goes to great lengths to make all their products wonderful. I've been to most of the parks and hotels and worked at Disneyland in college. The Animal Kingdom Lodge is a truly different experience from Disney, but magical nonetheless. Of course nothing comes cheap, but unless you can afford to travel on a very high quality African adventure, this... More

Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge is a great place to stay. We were able to visit this hotel in September 2014. The rooms were clean and the staff were friendly and extremely helpful. I am so glad that we were able to have that experience. The prices in the store were good compared to everywhere else we went. My experience there... More

My wife and I just finished a 3 day stay at this hotel and found it to be the best yet among the Disney hotels we've stayed at before. We've been at the Boardwalk, the Dolphin and the Corronado on previous stays. Our room on the fourth floor gave us a great view of the wildlife area. We saw many... More

My family and I love this hotel, especially during the holidays. There tree is magnificent as are the other year round amenities this place has to offer. The giraffes, wilds beasts and thompsons gazelles are right outside your room, and yet this place is no zoo. It is quiet and comfortable. The staff here, especially the ones who are ambassadors...

Love the animal kingdom lodge. Booked a one bedroom through DVC. Great location facing the lobby so we could see the Christmas tree and they upgraded us to a savanna view. The bed was hard and pillows made my neck hurt. My best sleep was at the wilderness lodge. The room was great except the bed. Staff are amazing every... More

My brother and I stayed here in an Arusha view room and it did not disappoint! The resort is huge but all of the Arusha view rooms are in the main semi circle, so it wasn't too much of a walk to our room. When we were first told our room was on the ground floor, we were a bit... More

We recently stayed 3 nights at the Animal Kingdom Lodge in Orlando. The lobby was beautifully decorated for the holidays and our room was very close it. We were glad we didn't have to take elevators or walk a long ways to get to the room. The room was nice but the sofa in the room was needed to be... More

This is a very nice resort. Everything was very clean, everyone super friendly and helpful. The main lodge is absolutely beautiful. The only drawback is that the halls are very long. I requested a room close to the lobby, but still had to walk a very long way to the room. I can't imagine what we would have gotten had... More
