This hotel was beautiful. The lobby was marvelous and all the animal habitats were very cool. I went with my boyfriend and got a savannah view room. It was our first time staying there so this was a cool feature. We did spend time on the balcony watching the animals whenever we were in the room. You can see the animals just as well from other areas of the hotel and talk with experts so if we stayed again we'd probably get a regular room.
We used both pools. We stayed at Kidani village but the quick serve food was at jambo house. this is why we used both. The quick serve food is just okay. The pools were both great. At jambo house, there are movies at night by the pool.
We lucked out and seemed to be right in the middle between Kidani and jambo. It was the same distance to our lobby or jambo. There is a shuttle between the two if needed.
We rented a car because we heard it took a while to get places on the bus. We did have to take the bus on the first and last day. I agree having a car was nice. Animal Kingdom lodge is out there compared to staying at other disney properties.
Overall, the hotel is nice and clean and the staff is very helpful. I wouldn't mind staying here again.
