Wonderful hotel as expected from Disney but love how they always make you feel like your "home". Rooms are great but some views are just of the parking lot. Love the shuttles to the parks as we never waited more than 10 mins for a bus. Restaurants always have the best goodies and ready to serve you. Can't wait to... More

The Magic Bands are not ready for prime time. Before the trip there was an issue with the reservation that I tried to correct with 2 lengthy phone calls. In both cases I was told to ‘speak to a manager at the hotel” (the problem was I booked 2 different hotels, attached my 7 day tickets to the SECOND hotel... More

My partner and I booked our holiday over a year ago, we regular visit Orlando but have never stayed 'on Disney' we thought we would treat ourselves and booked this hotel including the Disney dining plan. The main entrance/ lobby area is large and impressive, when we arrived we were given our magic bands and were briefly explained how this... More

Wow! Beautiful facilities - very big, we didn't even see half of it, but there were plenty of amenities (fitness center, several restaurants). And the animals! It's like staying in a hotel in the middle of the zoo. You look out your room window and see a family of giraffes having dinner. It's incredible! Great fun for families, couples, friends.... More

Just returned home from a 4 night stay at the Animal Kingdom Lodge. Had a wonderful time and was quite pleased with the cleaniness and friendliness of the lodge. All the personnel were quite friendly and kind. Loved being able to open the drapes each morning and seeing all the animals.

Absolutely amazing. Although costly, it's a well deserved visit. You actually get to see the animals and in some cases touch them. It's great for single, couples or families. The park caterers for all disabilities and kids with too much energy.

from the breathtaking lobby with its 4 storey windows looking out over the savannah to the music and sounds of Africa, this is a must stay hotel. Staff are excellent and informative. It is the most amazing place to unwind after a busy day at the Park, or skip the Park and enjoy the entire time in the Pool and... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a VERY expensive five day vacation. We splurged on the nicest rom available and were very excited. Both of us are from lifelong Disney families and have never had a bad experience, until this, our most expensive and longest trip. First, not everything was terrible - I'll start with the good: Unlike other... More

After spending 7 nights at Bonnet Creek Resort, we wanted to extend our stay a bit so we added a couple of nights at Animal Kingdom Lodge as icing on the cake. My first impression after having spent a week in a deluxe 2-bedroom condo, was that the room seemed a bit small, but then it's a hotel room not... More

A beautiful hotel, very friendly, you could almost be in Africa. Good food, nice rooms, very helpful staff, great views of the savanna. Giraffes, zebras, antelopes and many more animals just outside your room. Second visit and already planning to return next year
