Have stayed at many Disney properties this is by far one of our best experiences. We asked for a Savannah view, first room was not overly acceptable with a view overlooking ongoing hotel construction. When we asked for a new room we were given another room with zero issue with magnificent view. We had several giraffe, water buffalo and several other species outside our porch.
Room is standard disney fair with two double beds.
Hotel amenities were decent with several areas to eat. Jiko the high scale restaurant was FANTASTIC. Without a doubt one of the best meals in or out of Disney. Our service was excellent. My wife has tomato allergy, we were met before ordering by the chef and again after we ordered to ensure all was in order and what could be shared and what could not. The chocolate cream de pot for dessert was out of this world we went back next night just for dessert at the bar.
The breakfast buffet in the morning was good with some unique African plates that you might not get in other buffets.
There is a bar in the hotel drinks were reasonable priced but not great most of the specials were overly sweet and the habanero margarita had zero heat to it. The vodka and tonic was terrible think it was the tonic as I had one in jiko and it was just as bad.
I will definitely stay at Animal Kingdom Lodge again and definitely recommend for all guests. Get a savannah view an absolute must what a way to wake up in the morning.
