“Just feel at home here!”
Reviewed January 6, 2014

This is our home base for our DVC and we absolutely love it here! Without our DVC membership we could never afford the opulence this vista offers! The staff, the rooms, the restaurant, pool, the club house, the cookie decorating, everything is just so unique. We love the natural effect with all the amenities. The chefs at both Boma and the Mara take care of our individual dietary needs as my youngest and I are celiacs and also have dairy intolerance. The pool parties are fab! The club craft options are always cool. Christmas is an especially joyous, and wonderful occasion. But never, never, overdone or gaudy. Always the right amount of special Disney touches. The ladies at cookie decorating took care of our gluten needs and made sure even our icing and toppings were not cross contaminated. We had the most awesome time again.

Room Tip: Even in a value room you will have access to viewing the animals and it will still feel like the up...

We have stayed at many Disney's properties but this was a first at AKL. We really enjoyed the one bedroom room unit that we had and found it plenty large enough for our family of 4. Our daughers found the sofa and chair sleeper beds to be very comfortable. We had a view of the sunset savanna and enjoyed spending time on the balcony watching the animals. The pool area is very nice, unfortunately the weather didn't cooperate for us to use the area much. As a runner it was hard to find places to run here so I ended up at the fitness center which was very well maintained. The only downside is that this is a very large resort and we had quite a hike to our room, but the view from our room was worth it!

Amazing place...beautiful. Great room view ..well kept animals..watch for the carts with hay as the animals follow it. Pool is typical disney fun. Great choice of dining options. Enjoyed the observation deck areas. There are animal caretakers that will give information about the animals. Animal observation, family fun dining options and enjoying the property...never felt ad if i needed to leave. Beware..not for the snotty ritz carlton types..

We stayed at the animal kingdom lodge back in June 2013, it was absolutely amazing, the decor and theme of the hotel and rooms so detailed and the staff were lovely and helpful. Rooms very clean, food very good! Shuttle buses come frequently to the other parks. Hope to stay again this year!

Took our 2 kids aged 11 and 12 here for the first time and was not disappointed at all,the hotel is really nice the staff are amazing and so helpfully. We had a safari view which was excellent and the room was 1st class very clean and tidy as you would expect from Disney. The whole experience was truly magical and we can't wait to go back. From the reception through to the shops and restaurants all the staff were so knowledgeable ,friendly and helpful. We went for 2 weeks in October and found the hotel to be busy but not overly busy. Everything wad great and we were all really sad to leave but have agreed to back in 2015 . Would highly recommend this hotel and Disney Orlando ,absolutely amazing from start to Finnish . The Disney magical express is also highly recommended fantastic service.

I have stayed at this resort twice. Once at the Kidani Villas and the second time in Jambo house. I really like this resort a lot, it has everything you need and then some. We stayed in a two bedroom lock off villa. The rooms are well appointed and clean, the beds are comfortable and the decor is awesome. We had a pool view room which was very nice. If we wanted to view animals all we had to do was step out into the hallway. The service was what you expect from Disney which is excellent. The lobby and grounds of the hotel are also great and really nice to walk around and enjoy. The availability of restaurants is very good. There is the quick service Mara, the buffet at Boma and a fine dining restaurant. The kids loved the pool area. Overall, I love this place and would definitely recommend it.
