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

We were really impressed with the restaurant and food at AKL. The staff serving were also very friendly and attentive. The rooms weren't very clean. We had old clothes from the previous guest under our table and a room service food tray was left outside our neighbours room for 3 days. Repeated requests for it to be collected failed and... More

We've just gotten back and it was great. I've never been to disney before, and we went as a group of 5 adults, and it was fantastic. Specifically for this hotel: 1. There's stuff to do without having to leave the hotel, if you want a lazy half day/evening away from the parks. Pool with a slide and a kids... More

So glad we chose this hotel Everything about it is simply excellent From the greeting on arrival, greetings and food in all eateries, both on site pools and pool bars, rooms, maid service and last but not least, the stunning savanna views with the giraffes, zebras and other animals. Amazing holiday, thanks AKL

We stayed here for just over a week with family and requested rooms next to each other. We were granted this request and really enjoyed the stay and hotel. All the staff were so friendly and helpful it was a pleasure to see such polite staff. We ate in the Boma restaurant which I would recommend as the food and... More

Wow what a hotel. Great staff Great food Great view from room, woke up to giraffes every morning No issues with buses as mentioned by other people Only slight moan is that the hotel is so massive that after a day in the parks a walk to your room can seem to take a lifetime but it's a risk I...

Animal Kingdom Lodge is a great value for a high end experience of you don't mind being a bit further from the parks. Great dining, pools, safari, fitness center... although the rooms are a bit small.

We requested and got rooms close to the lobby, i guessed we would be doing all day walking so a short walk when back at hotel would be preferred and very glad we did. Rooms are great two king size beds good TV great bathroom and... More

We stayed here recently even though we live in the area. I thought the kids would enjoy a view from our room of the animals roaming by. We did see a lot of animals (though not at night at the lookout point with provided night vision glasses) so they enjoyed it. I did think the rooms were a bit smallish... More
