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

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

AKL, the most family friendly hotel I've Been to! Loved it there. Been there before and Will return! The cast members are warm, kind and friendly...Great rooms. And the view. Had a room overlooking the savannah on both My visits, and nothing beats mornings or evenings on the balcony! Can't wait to visit My home away from home again!

We just returned from a 5 night trip to Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge. The entire resort is African themed and maybe a little too much. The African music can get on your nerves. Hallways could be a little brighter especially for those older guests. I did find the rooms to be small especially for what they charge. I would also... More

If you stay here, get a savannah view. We expected a lot but got even more. The giraffes were outside our room every single day at same times. Rooms are gorgeous and clean. Food is fresh and delicious. Great activities.

I stayed in January 2015 at this hotel.It was my first time at Disney World and wanted my little girl to experience the best I could provide, so I tried the Savannah view room. Though we saw some animals in the morning, unluckily there weren't many... at least not all the time. Decoration was Great, the Hotel lobby was under... More

This is a cool resort. We had a savannah view and really enjoyed watching the animals roam around. The resort is new and nicely decorated with a cool African theme. The pool is nice and large as well with a pool bar that's perfect. The rooms were very comfortable but the highlight was no doubt seeing the animals roam around.... More

This was the second park I loved the most from Disney. It is not so big and it has a lot of rides a shows to see. I recommend for the ones who has kids under 7 to visit Kilimanjaro Safaris and finding Nemo the musical. There are others rides like seven Dwarfs mine train and Splash Mountain for big... More
