If you like animals i can see why you would book here.The Animal kingdom lodge did a great job at making you feel as though you are visiting an african lodge. For me, it was too dark and dreary. The room was dirty and I expected more for $450 a night!!! This was a dirty resort and I would not... More

We stayed our Disney Trip in Kidani Villas- it was so unique and worth it! The Africa theme was amazing and even better was the free roam animals outside of our door! Giraffe, zebra, ostrich! The staff was so incredibly helpful and kind- everything I would expect from a Disney Resort! The bus system seemed to take a bit longer... More

But for a couple of issues I would have given this hotel 5 stars. We stayed for a week in Jambo house on the Disney Dining plan. We had a savanna view which was great - giraffes and zebras every day outside our balcony. Room very comfortable and nicely furnished; no sign of wear and tear. Generally the staff are... More

What is better than watching animals feed from your luxurious room overlooking the Savannah? Worst case, you will overlook the gorgeous pool and the flamingo area. Rooms are super spacious and CLEAN AS A WHISTLE! Definately f Worth the price tag!

Stayed for 5 nights with daughter's family which included children age 5 and 8. We had adjoining rooms which was great as the kids could run into our room to show us the animals outside our rooms. Rooms were typical hotel layout. Clean with African theme. Kids enjoyed the bunk beds. All cast members were friendly and helpful. The entire... More

We spent a week at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge, our first at this location, about our tenth at WDW. While the resort is beautiful and our view of the "savanna" and animals was great, they hardly make up for the incredible waits we endured for bus transportation to anyplace else on the property. Waits for buses that are suppose to... More
