This has to be one of our best hotel experiences ever. The hotel is gorgeous--the theme of Africa is carried out in such beautiful detail, from the stunning architecture to the authentic African art (the largest permanent collection outside of Africa) and decor, to the scent of sandalwood throughout the hallways--even the hallway air vents carry on the motifs.

Staying at the Animal Kingdom Lodge was the perfect move. If you love animals then this is the place to stay. Getting up in the morning and sitting on the balcony was the best. The giraffes, zebras, gazelle etc were a great experience just watching and photographing them. The rooms were wonderful and everything you would expect from Disney. Cannot... More

First, I'm a Disney junkie. Love Disney and everything about the park. But this offering is a real let down. The hotel suffers from fatal errors in design that make the entire experience sub standard. Specifically, the rooms are very small, and accessible only by long, dark hallways...there simply are not nearly enough elevators. (This comes from a guy with... More

We have been coming to Disneyworld regularly since 1990 and usually stay at different Disney properties. This is our first time staying at the Animal Kingdom Lodge.....we wanted to stay here so that we could scope it out for when we take our grandchildren in the next couple years. Everything was so much better than even I could have imagined.... More

It's pretty hard to beat waking up to find giraffes and zebras frolicking outside your window. As the early morning's light snuck through my blinds I just wanted to grab my daughter, hold her up to the light and burst into a rousing rendition of The Lion King's Circle of Life.... "Naaaaaaants ingonyama bagithi Babaaaaaaa." This place is ridiculously beautiful.... More

We stood in the deluxe studio villa and had the safari view. It was absolutely beautiful! The hotel was clean, the staff very friendly, & the food was good. I would definitely stay again but only in a 1 or 2 bedroom villa instead. Sofa beds are very uncomfortable.

We had a great time in a room with bunk beds. Between the bunk beds and the animals outside the room, our kids were thrilled! Love the decor, the staff are all great, and we love the restaurants. Our kids also loved the zero entry pool and the water slide. It was perfect. We would stay here again. Only complaints... More

This was one of our best vacations, and not just because it was Disney, the hotel was off the chain... You name it this hotel had it, the pool was awesome, the room was awesome, the lobby was insane and awesome as well. But there is nothing like waking up going to your window and seeing a set of Giraffes... More

Surprised my wife on her 60th birthday with a night at the AK Lodge, dinner at Bomas's resturant, and a day at the AK Park. It was a wonderful weekend and well worth the bucks. Our room had animals outside all during the day. The food at Boma's is excellent. Our day at the park was great fun. Great place... More

….possibly! Let’s put this in context - so far we’ve stayed at: Port Orleans (French Quarter), Wilderness Lodge, Dolphin, Beach Club and now Animal Kingdom Lodge: Jambo House. But it is the best of this bunch? - yes, but only just. So what makes AK Lodge special? - the ability to view animals in a natural(ish) setting and fantastic theming.... More
