We really enjoyed our short stay at this awesome resort. Definitely worth staying in a savanna room. We saw lots of animals from our balcony. It was a bonus to have the cultural interpreters educate the guests on African culture and geography. Was not impressed with Jiko... had to send a meal back as it was not hot. Boma, the... More

Resort is beautiful inside and out. Staff is warm and welcoming. Roaming animals add daily excitement. Excellent selection of amenities from pools, food, lounges to shuttle service. High marks to front desk cast member Luke... Slight inconvenience with our bill and he fixed it right up with a smile and special fast pass for our day in the Animal Kingdom.... More

We recently stayed at Animal Kingdom Lodge for two nights. We've stayed here one other time and it's our favorite resort at Disney World. The service is top notch and there is so much to do at this resort. We got off a cruise ship on a Saturday morning and decided to just hang out at the resort for the... More

This hotel is absolutely amazing! My boyfriend and I went for our 8th year anniversary and the front desk was super helpful. Hannah, the one who checked us in, was so nice and helpful. The room was beautiful (we had a savannah view). Awesome food and stay!

Saw giraffes, ostriches and many other animals I am too ignorant to identify. Loved the zero entry pool for the 3 yo. Pool was... More

Wonderful views from our Savanah view. Lots of animals daily. We would stay again. We bought the 2 quick daily meals program. Well worth the price. ..I'm sure we saved a lot of money. We could use at any of the parks or resorts. Food was surprisingly good and lots of healthy choices. Wonderful experience.

This is my 3rd trip to Orlando, first stay at animal kingdom lodge. It's absolutely breathtaking beautiful. I originally heard horror stories about how far from the parks this hotel is, but I don't really notice a difference at all. Everyone is really nice and helpful the rooms are clean and, while not huge, they're big.. I love waking up... More

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights in November 2014 with our two children (2 and 4). The Kids loved it, waking up every morning to safari animals outside the room was awesome. The food in the hotel was lovely, although we ate only breakfast loads to choose from. The rooms were clean and surprisingly spacious. we booked... More

Stayed here for our honeymoon for a 2 week trip to Disney. We had a room overlooking the pool which was very nice, and whilst we did consider the upgrade to the Savanna view room we didn't feel it was worth it. Whilst it would be nice to wake up with a giraffe outside your room it was around £1,000... More
