If you plan on visiting WDW, you have to stay in a Disney hotel. Shuttle bus from the airport is nice and smooth, and shuttle buses to and from the five parks is frequent and convenient!! (just outside the hotel!) First of all, you can always count on Disney service. There was something wrong with my reservation since i booked... More

You can imagine the anticipation many people feel before they travel to Walt Disney World Resort but once you reach animal kingdom lodge you are faces with disaster! The resort itself is marvelous with African cuisine and a unique savanna right outside your windows but the service at this expensive resort it terrible! I have had many issues with the... More

We stayed in one of the lower rooms facing the larger savannah area. We were not disappointed by the views and proximity to the animals. Room was nice, nothing special. There was a free wine tasting of south african wines that was nice. Pool is large but usually pretty crowded. Prices are on par with other disney resorts of the... More

Charm has lost its appeal here. The rooms and halls are drab, perhaps a way to camouflage waning maintenance and care. Bus transport to and from the amusement parks are too sparse especially for dozens of waiting customers sweltering with family and friends. The staff are varied but when I asked the concierge to help change a resort dining reservation,... More

We stayed here 7/ 17- 7/19. A beautiful resort with great staff! Loved seeing all the animals on the savannahs. We enjoyed all the viewing areas located throughout the resort. Lots of great photo ops. The staff is wonderful and accommodating! Beautifully decorated, comfortable room. I am rating it as a 4 only because of the amount of walking required... More

Excellent hotel, with animals walking just outside your veranda, the whole stay was enjoyable, services were very good, staff very friendly and helpful.... Excellent shuttle services to all the parks, every 20 minutes. Wild animals walking freely outside on the vast fields and you can watch them from your veranda, it feels as if you were in an African luxury... More

Had a lovely stay here with Husband and two children (17 & 12) Room was a good size, as was bathroom. We looked out onto the Savannah which was simply breathtaking. Only downside for us was the cost of the food. Had a buffet at restaurant which can best be described as average that cost a small fortune. Other alternative... More

We have stayed at Animal Kingdom Lodge before and always loved it. This time there were 6 of us - my huband and I in one room and my brother, sister in law and their two girls (ages 8 and 3) in the other. Both rooms had 2 queen beds which suited us fine but you can request a room... More
