I love Disney but Animal Kingdom Lodge is over the top. The lodge is beautiful, the staff were engaging and helpful, the animals were amazing! I cannot wait to return in 2015. Worth the expense any day!

I stayed in most if not all DisneyWorld resort and for the uniqueness and thus alone the African animals probably the top on property. Plus where outside Africa could you have a room overlooking the savanna filled with giraffe, zebra, wildebeest, and all sorts of antelopes and African birds. For resort guest there are some safari tours with a private... More

We stayed at animal lodge kingdom this august during our Disney world trip. The hotel is perfect for kids, loads of animals to see just from your balcony . From minuses I would mention that it is freezing inside the hotel, there is no need the temperature to be so low and the shower was tiny and not very comfortable.

This was our second trip to the Animal Kingdom Lodge and was even better than the first. The hotel was perfect in every way and we'd go back for a third time without hesitation. I cannot recommend this highly enough.

We spent two weeks at the Animal Kingdom Lodge, Jambo House, in late August. We were very pleased with the quality of the accommodation and the service received. All staff were friendly and knowledgeable, very service focused. The quality of the rooms is OK - they are not generously-sized but adequate and fit a family of four. Good water pressure... More

This was a great hotel, had the dining option and the restaurant here was great value and although busy we were always well looked after.... cant beat animals outside your room very magical. Only downside and not sure it was because we were unlucky but shuttles were quite random and a number of problems and hanging around and waiting....

This was my second trip to Disney World and my first stay at a resort. I think it is a good place to stay if you have animal lovers in the family. We got a room with the Arusha view and it was pretty cool to look out your balcony and see a giraffe a few yards away. You have... More

I don't have much to say that other reviewers haven't previously posted, but this place is simply magical. From the amazing customer service to the little details they have it all, definetely worth the money in my book!

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
