Our three nights here were a good experience with some Disney magic. The staff is friendly but not the caliber of some of the other Resorts. Sometimes it seems they are just too busy to help. Check in was easy since I had checked in in advance. I was so excited about our Savannah view 1 bedroom suite. We had... More

Stayed at the Animal Kingdom Easter 2014 for two weeks. A really good hotel and the attention to detail was excellent. The kids enjoyed looking out onto the Savannah and the late night movie shows round the pool were fantastic. The kids club was not that great and poorly attended probably because most families are busy enjoying the theme parks... More

It was a nice hotel. Very unique. We did not have the best view (we had the lower end priced rooms). We saw the better animals while exploring the hotel. Our room was far down the corridor and the way parking works, we could not get closer. It was nice to say we have stayed here but I wouldn't spend... More

Wow what a hotel it's got everything you could ask for and with a view. We loved the bike ride you can take. It takes you through all the wooded area of the grounds and if your lucky you will see a dear just like we did it was inches away from us. It was an amazing experience. The pools... More

This has to be one of our best hotel experiences ever. The hotel is gorgeous--the theme of Africa is carried out in such beautiful detail, from the stunning architecture to the authentic African art (the largest permanent collection outside of Africa) and decor, to the scent of sandalwood throughout the hallways--even the hallway air vents carry on the motifs. The... More

Staying at the Animal Kingdom Lodge was the perfect move. If you love animals then this is the place to stay. Getting up in the morning and sitting on the balcony was the best. The giraffes, zebras, gazelle etc were a great experience just watching and photographing them. The rooms were wonderful and everything you would expect from Disney. Cannot... More

First, I'm a Disney junkie. Love Disney and everything about the park. But this offering is a real let down. The hotel suffers from fatal errors in design that make the entire experience sub standard. Specifically, the rooms are very small, and accessible only by long, dark hallways...there simply are not nearly enough elevators. (This comes from a guy with... More

We have been coming to Disneyworld regularly since 1990 and usually stay at different Disney properties. This is our first time staying at the Animal Kingdom Lodge.....we wanted to stay here so that we could scope it out for when we take our grandchildren in the next couple years. Everything was so much better than even I could have imagined.... More

It's pretty hard to beat waking up to find giraffes and zebras frolicking outside your window. As the early morning's light snuck through my blinds I just wanted to grab my daughter, hold her up to the light and burst into a rousing rendition of The Lion King's Circle of Life.... "Naaaaaaants ingonyama bagithi Babaaaaaaa." This place is ridiculously beautiful.... More

We stood in the deluxe studio villa and had the safari view. It was absolutely beautiful! The hotel was clean, the staff very friendly, & the food was good. I would definitely stay again but only in a 1 or 2 bedroom villa instead. Sofa beds are very uncomfortable.
