My brother and I stayed here for 3 nights and we loved it. We had an Arusha view so we could look out at the animals in the giant central savanna whenever we wanted. Our room was nice and clean. It is really cool to be able to just walk out on your balcony and see exotic animals right there... More

I love this place and have been there 7 years in a row. this year you could see the cut backs. They are cutting back on the number of chocolates they leave at turn down service. They carefully count out 2 per person. The chocolates only come in 2 flavours now, where before there were 4. They are no longer... More

Absolutely a great stay (10days) loved the helpful staff and of course the animals. The only downside was the bottomless beverage spot was quite a walk away from my room. Great food as well. Everything was kept clean but for the cost which is a bit pricey it's worth it!

The Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge was very nice and the people were great! The view from our room was beautiful overlooking the gigantic pool. Travel between the parks and resorts was very easy with all of the shuttles available. I would definitely stay there again!!

We took our son on a trip to Disney for his birthday and we decided we would try the Animal Kingdom Lodge. It was amazing, and he absolutely loved it. We stayed in a room with bunk beds and a my son thought that was the best thing in the world! We got in late at night so when we... More

We have visited Disney for the past few years and have stayed at many of the resorts....this one was by far my favourite! The check in process could have been a little smoother but after some discussion all was rectified and I have nothing but praise after that. Mouse keeping was fabulous, great food choices, fantastic pool, amazing rooms with... More

But was it worth spending the money to stay at animal kingdom lodge over lets say port orleans riverside? No. Now dont get me wrong, animal kingdom lodge was beautiful. We stayed... More

We just returned from a 3 night stay at the Animal Kingdom (Jambo House). I must say that from the moment we were picked up at the airport (includes transportation through Magic Express) and got off the bus, we were greeted with warm and friendly receptionists. We asked for a king size bed, which we were told was very limited,... More

This was our second time staying at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge. The first time was 5 years ago and not much has changed. Service - As is the case with most Disney Resort properties, the service was outstanding. From friendly cast members behind the check-in and concierge desk to the maids and janitorial staff, everyone greets you with a smile.... More
