We stayed here for our Honeymoon a few years ago and I never wrote a review so thought it about time! Was a visually stunning resort, the lobby is amazing! Rooms are beautifully themed and our view of the savannah was unbelievable. My only issue here is the distance to the parks, it takes a while to get anywhere on... More

The hotel itself would be a nice 3 star hotel, but when you throw in the fact that you can see giraffe and other wildlife from your balcony it moves it up to 3.5 stars. If you also add in the spectacular lobby and excellent service, you have a 4 star hotel. Convenient by shuttle bus to all the parks,... More

Just returned home from a 6 night stay at Animal Kingdom Lodge. I really loved this resort. I'm not a Disney expert in fact this was only my 2nd visit to Disney and first time staying in a Disney resort so I can't compare it to any of the other resorts. I LOVED the pool I ended up starting each... More

I've lost count of how many times I've stayed at this hotel. Not a lot by many people's standards but a good 6-8 times. Typically club level. Well worth it. Theming is amazing. Staff are typically courteous although you can find the odd one who is not. Disney went above and beyond with this hotel. I can't say it's perfect,... More

My husband is paralyzed and we have been to many of the Disney hotels. This one is one of the few actually worth the money! The rooms were large and the bathroom had a roll in shower, the pool is a zero depth pool so I am able to roll him in and out of it. We had such an... More

I have stayed at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge about 4-5 times and each has been absolutely amazing. I've stayed in both Jambo House and Kidani Village and trust me, Jambo House is the way to go. Definitely stay on the Sunset Savannah or Arusha Savannah for the best wildlife viewing. The restaurant, Boma, is delicious and the pool is amazing.... More

If you've not stayed here before it's an experience no to be missed, the animals are great the hotel looks as it's in Africa but of course it's not. Lots of good eateries if your a big carnivore. The buses to the parks are frequent, although it could take 30 mins for arriving to walking into MK. The rooms are... More

Its a fantastic experience living at the lodge. We stayed on the level 2 rooms and had bunk beds for our kids. It was great to watch the animals meandering around the savanna surrounding the lodge. Its the next best experience to actually been in Africa. The restaurant is top notch and a must visit. I would recommend this hotel... More
