My husband and I stayed one night at the Animal Kingdom Lodge - it was for our 25th wedding anniversary, and he had always wanted to stay there. There was a summer deal, and it was only $50 more to stay concierge level with a Savannah view. Sold! We drove in from the Tampa airport (we were there to pick... More

First the positives - the animals are amazing. There were many of them throughout the day and our whole family really enjoyed sitting on the deck watching them. The lobby and other common areas are nice, and the pool area is really great for the kids. But for the incredible price they charge we expected cleaner rooms that were better... More

My family finally convinced me to try the Animal Kingdom Lodge and I must say I am very pleased they did so. More than any other resort - even the Wilderness Lodge - the Animal Kingdom Lodge offers it's guests the feeling of being in another (highly themed) world. The rooms, the common spaces, and most of all the animal... More

We really enjoyed our time at this resort. There is lots for the kids to do and the staff is amazing. It offers anything you would ever know, of course at Disney prices. The kids loved all of the animals and activities. The grab and go restaurant/market downstairs by the pool was the best option for food that we found... More

This is definately a nice one night stop before our cruise. We had a reg standard room, but there are plenty of viewing areas for the different animals. We also took a night time safari that is only available to the guests there. The beds were comfortable and having a ceiling fan was a great plus for us.Glad we could... More

the room is not exceptional, we stayed in a arusha view room. at 580.00 the only thing worth the trip ,is the fact that you can see the wildlife from your balcony. apart from that, iwould say it is not worth the rate. we ate in the cafeteris style dining and the food was very good for theme park quality....

The savannah surrounding the hotel is breathtaking!! The rooms are beautiful, the restaurants are great and the lobby is amazing. But the best is the zero entry pool!!! You can relax in the water without being completely in the water!

Welcome to Animal Kingdom lodge. Everything here is first class but things are also inflexible and a little worn out. Reservation request can get lost. Oh you wanted a bunk bed? Sorry there aren't any. High floor? How about the second of five floors. The rooms need an update. The grounds are beautiful. The animals are visible and cared for.... More

We were going to Disney for Emma, but the adults wanted to enjoy the area outside of the theme parks. As an animal lover and photographer, when I heard about Disney's Animal Kingdom, I was stoked. Emma will love the parks and the Lodge and I will be able to sneak away for some QT and enjoy nature right there... More

For being a "deluxe" resort for Disney categories, the standard room was great. The big temptation when I booked the room for my family was thinking we would be missing out on a savannah view when the standard room is marketed as a "parking lot" view. Boy was I wrong, we had a great view of the "back" of the... More
