The idea of animals onsite is exciting! However the animals here aren't really exciting. But i understand y they can't have any aggressive animals. I'd say it's a must-see just to experience it. But don't expect any action other than grass nibbling. We had the best available suite that's eye level with the animals and has exclusive club level access.... More

The atmosphere of Animal Kingdom Lodge is amazing. The animals, the lobby, the fire pits, the pool... Everything was wonderful. One strong suggestion I have for the staff; USE FILTERED WATER FOR THE FOUNTAIN DRiNKS AND LEMONADE!! Don't spend money on the refillable mugs because the drinks are just not drinkable at the Maraa We stayed Club Level, which was... More

Myself, my husband, and two teenaged children stayed here 2nd week of August. We stayed in a pool view room due to the closeness to the lobby and restaurants. There are so many places to view the animals that there really wasn't any need to pay a lot more for a savannah view room. The pool view was just like... More

Third time at AKL..this time we booked club lounge access,this was provided breakfast and snacks,somewhere to escape the fast pace of Disney. The view from the room did not disappoint with views of the animals most times of the day. Staff were helpful and attentive always with a warm welcome. The only downside this time was the transportation being unreliable,having... More

Stayed here on a recent visit to WDW. Jambo House is a unique hotel and very comfortable, but there are a few issues. Walls are very thin which made it easy to hear things going on in the hall. Magicbands still have their issues with opening room doors. Check in wasn't painless and we had to make several trips to... More

We have stayed at other Disney properties but this one was by far the most atmospheric so far. The rooms are amazing and we had a wonderful view of the Savannah with Giraffes, Antelope, Zebra and many others regularly grazing. It is a fair walk from the central facilities of the hotel to a lot of the rooms but I... More

As soon as you step into the hotel you are transported into Africa! ...and its magical animal kingdom. The colours, the architecture, even the smells takes you to yet another continent. The staff are very welcoming and polite. Our room was big enough to accommate the 4 of us quite comfortably. The shower area could have been a little bigger.... More

I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights in the beginning of August after coming off of a cruise from Miami. The hotel itself is very nice! There are two different parts -- The Main Lodge and Kidani Village, I stayed in Kidani Village since I'm a DVC member. It was nice to have our own section with the same... More

After staying practically everywhere else on Disney property- finally gave Animal Kingdom Lodge a try. The BAD: First off its a nice hotel but I did not get the WOW factor like seeing Grand Floridian or Beach Club for the first time. Reminded me of a small version of Wilderness Lodge. Everything here is far just driving to the resort... More
