We have stayed at most of the locations on property at the Disney World Resort but this is the favorite of our 3 children. We have stayed several times, normally in a savannah view room which enhances the experience but also in the standards. The primary plus is the animals and the close access you have while staying here. If... More

We stayed at Animal Kingdom Lodge in 2012 and loved the warm welcoming atmosphere. It had all of the unique Disney touches about it that made it special and magical. The staff would greet you with "Welcome home" as you walked in the door and they were always eager to make you feel like you were special and welcome. We... More

Went her when I was younger with my family and they were all just so welcoming. The stunning high roof of the lobby was amazing. As kids we were running around enjoying ourselves and the staff didn't mind they just smiled. It has a amazing pool with a slide so we spent evenings in the pool. Our room had a... More

My wife, our 4 year old daughter and I just spent a week at Animal Kingdom Lodge and were not disappointed! We've been to WDW before and have stayed close to Epcot, at the Disney Beach Club, so this was our first experience at a different WDW Resort. We used the Disney Express Bus service from MCO (highly recommend), even... More

This is a large hotel that feels like a small hotel. From the moment we pulled up to the front entrance, we were made to feel special. The level of service is stunning. The decoration is superb. We were constantly impressed with the level of finish and the attention to detail. We made sure we had a savannah view, so... More

My family and I have now been to this hotel twice. Both times we have loved this hotel and it almost feels like a second home to us. The lobby is stunning and has a homely feel to it.
