Our stay at the Animal Kingdom Lodge was amazing. We went to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary and had a great time. Our first room (I'll explain soon) was on the 4th floor with a partial pool/rooftop view. King bed, ceiling fan, mini fridge, safe, and day bed completed the room. It was themed so well, as was the entire... More

We spent 4 nights in a Savahna room. Great views of the animals. We were on Jambo side. 3rd floor. Nice pool and hot tub. Enjoyed the activities, playing drums, stories by the fire, etc. nice gift shop. Everything was very convenient for visiting the Disney parks. Buses were easy to find and came every 20-30 minutes. The only down... More

We have stayed here a few times now, each time we are thrilled by the sight of Giraffe, zebra and even the endangered Okapi wandering past your balcony! The lobby will take your breath away. Staff are eager to please and very knowledgeable. The restaurants here are wonderful and you should definitely try Boma. So whether you want to watch... More

This was a really good room in an interesting hotel. Great pool and we ate in the cafeteria on the lower level a couple of times. Transportation to MK and AK were very easy and relatively quick (25 minutes). The only issue we had was printing boarding passes. This hotel and the other Disney properties have seamless check-in, check-out, free... More

Our kids loved to stand on the balcony and watch the animals on the savanna. We had a great time just being in the hotel. Very close to Animal Kingdom park but further from the other parks. Still a great place to stay if you like animals and quiet.

We stayed here for 4 nights, August 2016. We started out at the Boardwalk Inn for 10 nights to be close to the parks and moved to AKL for the end of our trip for some relaxation. I loved the BWI and was reluctant to leave it but I was blown away by AKL! We stayed club level with Savannah... More

We had a two week trip of which we spent the first week at the Animal Kingdom Lodge. It is expensive compared to 'non-disney' hotels, but if it fits within the budget, it's worth a short stay. Kids wake up and run to the window to have a look at the animals wondering about. Service was up to the 'Disney'... More

Had 5 nights in Jambo House, with a Savannah view studio suite in July, and it was perfect for 3 of us. We had booked as guests of the Disney vacation club, and online check-in, and subsequent arrival was effortless and handled expertly with great personality and ease. With magic bands to cover everything throughout our stay and park visits... More

We just had the best Disney vacation ever, much of it due to AKL. Here is a trick for getting a more affordable price - when Disney offers 30% off deluxe rooms and those dates work for you, go to a third party discount site that offers coupons to book. They will have the 30% off promotion from Disney, then... More

Oh my gosh! Wonderful! Spent four days here as part of a 2 week multi stop holiday. Had a Savannah view room for myself, husband and two children aged 9,7. Pros. The reception is unreal! So beautiful. It is so imposing and you can just sit and relax and take in the beautiful surroundings. There is an amazing fire pit... More
