This was an amazing stay. We woke to giraffes munching their breakfast outside our balcony! Loved the theming, loved the pool, fun was great too. One thing to note is that the resort can be far from the Reston the Disney action. We were very glad to have a car to get around. Some guests were concerned about taking a... More

Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge ("AKL") is a large hotel and villa complex in the vacinity of Animal Kingdom. There are a good variety of savannah-dwelling animals in the open areas around and adjacent to the resort during the daytime hours. It is more "different" than the other Disney Deluxe resorts, all of which have a feel of some aspect of... More

We stayed here for a week in July 2014. We were greeted at the entrance of the hotel, and asked if we had already checked in online. We were then lead into the most magnificent lobby - a real majestic site. We were directed to an area of the lobby to check in. There was no real "line up" unfortunately... More

I've stayed here twice before and I love it! If you plan on coming here ask for a room with a balcony so you can sit and watch the animals. Very friendly staff. This is a family hotel though so if you don't want to be bothered by kids I wouldn't stay here.

My wife and I stayed here on our Honeymoon for the extra Disney Magic hours. What a stupid idea!!! This hotel is an absolute dump. The room smelled. It wasn't clean. The people on reception were rude. The food was terrible. The only place open for breakfast before going to Disney was a crappy cafeteria that sold sub par take... More

Went to AKL for 6 nights to celebrate my 40th birthday with my husband, sister-in-law and her husband. The magic started upon arrival with a room upgrade (from standard to Savanna view!) for all of us :) We stayed in 3258 (3rd floor is the main floor), overlooking Sunset Savanna. I must agree with other reviewers that our room had... More

Stayed here for 8 days in a Savannah room - it was breath taking waking up and seeing the animals - giraffe, zebra, antelope to name but a few and watching the sun go down on the balcony was bliss at the end of the day. Very well themed and authentic.
