We were staying in the Orlando area and thought we'd like to visit the Animal Kingdom Lodge and see what it was like. You are able to go onto the grounds and eat at the restaurants even if you're not staying there. We ate at The Mara for lunch as we had children with us. It is set up like... More

We stayed for 3 nights at AKL before a Disney Cruise and it was wonderful!! We spent one full day just hanging out at the Lodge and still don't feel like we saw everything. The rooms are standard size comparable to a Moderate hotel (like Port Orleans - Riverside) but with a little more room in the bathroom area with... More

Grand daughters 5th b-day week-end. They made a big deal of her at check in with a b-day R crown and pin rained most of the time, but the hotel went out of it's way to provide activities inside. Great 2nd floor balcony room so we could watch the animals feed.

The lobby is jaw-dropping, the grounds are beautiful. It was a quiet moment when we checked in Tuesday Feb 17th and was fantastic to explore the grounds and watch the animals roaming with the helpful guides answering our questions. The rooms definitely aren't something special but they are comfortable and in calm brownish tones. I love the African handcraft and... More

We had such a fantastic stay here! It was so much fun being able to open your window curtains every morning and see animals such as zebras and giraffes!! We stayed at Jambo house. The lobby was so beautiful and staff were mega friendly. The Jiko restaurant downstairs was incredible! I loved the theme in the rooms, which were clean.... More

We stayed at Animal Kingdom lodge for two weeks in October, we travelled with our 2 children who are 5 and 1. We've been to Orlando several times but only stayed in one other Disney hotel ( art of animation ). We were allocated a room really close to the lobby and facilities, rooms were clean and had ample room... More

The hotel is like a huge African log cabin - very interesting. The lobby is ~3 stories, with a multi-level restaurant and in-door fire pits. The best part, though, was the animals! I woke up and opened my curtains to find 3 giraffes and ~4 wildebeests outside - very cool. Also, the animals clearly thought I was the entertainment...after thinking... More

This was our first visit to WDW and we wanted to do it right, so we booked the Animal Kingdom Lodge for 7 nights. We were not disappointed. The pictures do not do this resort justice. The four story atrium is amazing and at the back of the atrium there is a four story window through which you can see... More
