“relaxing beautiful hotel”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

we stayed club level savannah view. Having stayed at other disney deluxe club level hotels, I must say we were very pleased. The service was excellent, the people friendly, and willing to go out of there way for your stay to be above any. The property is removed from a lot of the disney action. however thats part of its charm. Its peaceful, and fitting for a resort surrounded by beautiful animals. The food was fabulous and the people in jiko made our anniversary meal unfortgetable . Service was excellent as was the food. We will be back.

This is the 2 nd time coming to this hotel had such good time last year we decided to come back. Checked in with no fuss had a room with bunk beds room 4266 bit of a walk from the front but could see animals from room . The rooms aren't big u do live out your suit case we have to teenage daughters so not much room . Rooms have hairdryer toiletries clean towels and bedding everyday coffee machine and iron with board. Everyone is very friendly when u are walking around the pool area has loads of chairs and free towels games for kids and pool bar . Eat at mara for breakfast sometimes which was ok we wer on the dinning plan which we liked . Also eat at boma kids weren't that fussed on that me and husband eat at jiko which was lovely u do have to book that. . We did have a car but used the buses as well this year they got on my nerves a bit to get to downtown Disney a good 30 mins or more and coming back always seemed full other times u wer waiting 30 mins for a bus then 3 for same place turned up but as I say we did use them just easier than parking up .it is a lovely hotel if u like Disney have a go .

We absolutely loved it here! We visited for one week while planning our Disney Fairytale Wedding. Our room was always immaculate and we had a great view of the savannah. The pool is, by far, our favorite at a Disney resort. The Mara has great lunch options. Best part was how peaceful it was - perfect for a 'romantic' getaway. Yes, the room is very dark, but it fits well with the overall theme. Biggest downfall s how far away from the 'action' it was. I strongly recommend aging your own transportation.

We travelled as an adult family of 4 and this place has everything you would need. if something is missing, just ask.

the rooms are fine and there are plenty of animal viewing opportunities if you spend the time - there is no point in paying extra for a savannah view.

A car is advisable but the Disney bus services are good and reliable.

To enjoy the whole experience - JUST DO NOT RUSH

The staff all around as per usual disney style are excellent

Stayed in room 5547 Jambo house, we had a great view to the animals and saw
giraffes , zebras, birds , kettles and some other
Room was big and clean and had a great balcony size
We had rented points from dvc friend and stayed on 5 th floor which is al DVC floor
We enjoyed the walk from elevator never felt that it was to long or anything since we always took us time to look out the windows and saw animals every time we walked there
Service on the grounds and transportations worked very good for us
Consiure service staf should get a big star -they helped us with a lot
Up on arraviel after transfer from Wilderness lodge villas I noticed that it was only one toilet roll in the bathroom , we had some other issus aswell with the sofabed someone hadn´t made it properly on check in so we needed help to get it out , the call to get help got reacted on pronto, but the need of calling for something that just should have been there to begin with makes me to give the maids there a less star .
The washing is only every 4 day so I knew at that point with 3 girls in the room that we would need more toilet paper - long story short after beeing without toiletpaper for 24 hours used papertissues and I had asked for toiletpaper in the morning I had to go to consiure for it and they acted pronto getting us 3 rolls which lasted the rest of our stay
The hotel grounds are beautiful with lots of places to see the animals and savannah
, but only one big pool which I found rather crowded all the time we where there , and missed " my quiet pool " at Wilderness lodge
My daughters loved the place and when I asked which of this two hotels to go back to on the next trip my youngest wants to go to AKL , the other one thought the same as me that we liked to be at Wilderness lodge
We ate at Boma twice for dinner -good food there as always
and we ate my youngest daughters birthday breakfast there on the 18 th of October again great service from the staf at Boma
We was on the dining plan and had a couple of quick service meals at Mara - lunch was good for kids at least the pizza was , breakfast only 2 options for kids and no changing of items
Will we stay there again ? Perhaps we will , but I think I will try to get a room at Wilderness lodge , but if thats not avaible I would go here again

Room Tip: Stayed on 5547 they said it wasn´t a savannah room , but a good standard room with viuw , well we co...

We stayed at the Jambo house in Animal Kingdom Lodge. We had the Kilimanjaro Club Level - Standard Room. The Jambo house portion is beautiful and huge. Our room was nice and clean and had a view of the Savannah. The animals were fairly active and we saw them a lot from our balcony. The staff was so courteous and helpful. We had club level so this included complimentary breakfast, snacks and beverages throughout day. I wasn't expecting much. However, the breakfast, snacks and beverages that were offered exceeded my expectations. Everything was very good.

We enjoyed the pools, play area, walking paths and all the kids activities. I liked the fire pit outside at night. It was very peaceful sitting there after a long day in the parks.

I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it.
