Rooms were clean, staff was friendly, food choices didnt leave us disappointed. We loved seeing the giraffes in the mornings just strolling along, exotic without leaving the country. The pool was nice too, we lucked out and it was never too busy for us to enjoy some much needed rest and relaxation. The price was a bit high, but I... More

Just got back, and have to agree with other previous posts on the room size/quality. They would pass for a moderate or value, but not luxury. Lobby and animals were awesome, but I've had bigger, better, more comfortable rooms at the Hampton Inn. Furniture was a step up, but I want space more than a pretty bed. The cafeteria was... More

We arrived here on August 21st, week 2 of our 2 week Disney vacation( 1st week was at Disney's Art of Animation). We had friends who recommended this location to us so we thought we would try it as a surprise for my mom. We were in Jambo house, Savanna view on the 4th floor. One queen bed, 2 twin... More

The room was amazing! Outside our room we were welcomed every morning with a friendly giraffe. The restaurant options were amazing. Evan the cafeteria had amazing food. I recommend the squash soup, "Yummy"! We did not have time to visit the pool but it was never crowded and looked very inviting. This is a resort that is in Disney property.... More

Not a good start! My wife has spent hours of research, over several months, and all the other preparations necessary for that once in a lifetime "Magical" family vacation" to Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge. Reservations confirmed so airline tickets were purchased, rental car booked and paid for. All that was left was for the upcoming date for it all to... More

Stayed here before in a standard room, however first time club level. Check in good, taken straight to the club lounge. Customised magic bands had gone missing however a cast member went walkabout and found us the colours we had ordered instead of the grey ones - much appreciated. Club lounge is nice, evening food not much variety or choice... More

Stayed here in July, was a bit worried as I knew the room wasn't gonna be huge, and we had paid good money. However everything was wonderful. We had a bunk bed savannah room. There was always some type of animal to see out the balcony, and I could have just sat there all day, very relaxing. We had no... More

I'm a huge Disney fan and have visited Walt Disney World 6 times in the last four years. We've even stayed at Disney's Animal kingdom Lodge on more than one occasion. This time was different though. The service was just not up to standard. The front desk seemed clueless about procedures to get a cab--we had to call three separate... More

Before you dismiss my review as an outlier, read on -- I hope there's something of value for you to learn from it. When you first walk in the Animal Kingdom Lodge, it's breathtaking -- the interior courtyard around the lobby, the depth of decoration and theming, and the savanna with exotic animals at the other end. The restaurants (particularly... More

We recently stayed at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge. The hotel was beautiful, and our room was charming, however my back is killing me from sleeping on one of the hardest beds I've ever slept on. I think that Disney has fallen behind in the world of luxury hotels. Yes, it looks like a luxury hotel, but the bed was not... More
