“Wild Life”
Reviewed November 20, 2013

If you have ever dreamed of living with African Wildlife, on a savannah, this is your resort. With constant views of wildlife up close, this is a resort for those who love wild animals. Typical Disney rooms, separated from every other Disney Resort by the wildlife views. The main lobby is stunning, with entertainment, stores, and dining available, and spectacular views. The main lodge has views and trails in the Savannah. The two Villa Lodges have views of a separate savannah, replete with wildlife. Separated from most of the other Disney Resorts here, this is a study in tranquility, with views of most species of African wildlife. Tranquility and spectacular wildlife are the reasons for choosing this lodge.

Room Tip: I prefer the Main Lodge and Savannah View rooms

the rooms are expensive and they are pretty small. the hotel is nice though theres like a garden in the middle of it that you walk around. the wifi is very expensive they told us we had to pay to use it which was stupid anyways so we did but it was very slow.

Great stay. Stayed at Jambo and had Arusha view room. Very relaxing. Several areas you can go to his from all the kids if you don't have any like us. Great meals at all dining. Sanna and Jico are amazing. See separate reviews. Great testing ground if you plan on going to Africa.

We had a standard room reservation and we're upgraded to a savanna view. Not the urusha view. but still had 4 or 5 different animals. On the far right side of the lobby. We had a great view. You can clearly see the animals up close. Even at a distance. Clearly saw the resort safari ride below our balcony. 3 out of the four times we looked, there were animals. First thing in the morning before noon. mid day and at night. Very quiet. It does NOT smell. The room is beautiful. Large bathtub. Very comfortable beds. Flat screen tv that has dvd player. Connections for ipod. table and 2 chairs in the room and on balcony. 4 dresser drawers. Closet that has an iron, board, blanket, pillow, hangers, luggage carrier. Mini fridge. double sinks. Lots of info about the resort. AND.... new magic band on the door.

Great fun for the entire family from minute one until check out

We stayed at the Jambo House concierge level. The service was impeccable. There was a hostess to meet us in the front of the hotel. She took us up to the club level, activated our magic bands etc. Room was ready early so we could hop over to the park asap. The cast members, especially those recently from Africa, shared about their culture and were incredibly helpful. Pool is incredible and the views of the animals were awesome. You could spend hours on your verandah just watching them. Thanks Disney World for this amazing property.

Room Tip: ask for a savannah view

Stayed here for 10 nights, had a Savannah view room where we could see zebra, giraffe, antelope, storks ... and squirrels but they don't count. Staff were superb from start to finish, special mention for Emily on check-in who made us feel so welcome. Our first stay at a Disney resort, we normally go to the Swan, but we'll be coming back here.
