An entirely unique Disney experience just to the west of Disney's Animal Kingdom® Theme Park. It's the thrill of staying at a wildlife reserve with animals grazing just beyond your balcony. Rejuvenate both body and spirit in luxurious surroundings while sharing the grandeur of the African wilderness. The beauty of the savannah, the rhythm of tribal drums, exquisite cuisine in lush settings and the lure of authentic African treasures all come together to celebrate the beauty and wonder of this vast and untamed continent.
Location: Situated within Disney's Animal Kingdom Resort Area; 22 km from the Orlando airport

Wow, what a place!

We had a 'magical' time at Animal Kingdom Lodge. The savanna room was spotless and clean and made you feel like you were staying in Africa - you can sit on the balcony and watch the giraffes, zebras, gazelles and other animals up close as they eat and roam around the area.The staff were so friendly, helpful and happy. Even when you passed them in the hallway, they would stop and chat to you and your family.The pool area had a slide in it which my son loved and there was also a spa and you could sit and watch the pink flamingos in the area behind the pool. The food was great - there was a very informal area down near the pool where very basic food could be ordered or selected from the fridge (very kid friendly), room service and a bistro type restaurant and another restaurant. We used the first three options and found the food to be good.The bus system that transported you to the theme parks was awesome, along with the one from/to the airport. This place is so well organised and nothing was a hassle.

Absolutely stunning!!!!

We came to Orlando as a 2 week holiday 1 week in this hotel and 1 week in the Hard Rock Hotel. This hotel is absolutely stunning. We couldn't believe how beautiful it was. We had a great view of the animals from our room. All staff was very friendly and couldn't do enough for us. The place is very clean and both restaurant's have amazing food. The quick service restaurant also had a good variety of food avaliable. The beds where lovely and comfortable.The only down side I have is that I didn't think the pool was very big and it wasn't deep at all but I guess it wasn't very deep due to it being a family hotel. But besides that I would recommend this hotel to anyone. We're even planning on coming back here in 2018 can't wait.

Beautiful hotel!

Had a fabulous 2 weeks here in Oct. The hotel is gorgeous and full of African charm, the food and drinks in all of the restaurants is perfect, Jiko was one of my favourite restaurants of the whole trip! The pool is wonderful and plenty of sunbeds to go around. The animals were fab and my kids loved seeing the giraffes and flamingos every day. The only slight downside is the location, this is the furthest hotel away from the parks so the bus journeys can take a little longer and you sometimes wait longer than 20 mins for a bus esp from Disney Springs.The hotel were fab during Hurricane Matthew with lots of reassurance along with plenty for us to do when we were hotel bound.Would recommend this to anyone!

All we'd hoped for

We had a wonderful experience on our first trip to Disney World. We stayed in a room with bunk beds, which allowed all four of us to sleep well and be ready for full days at the parks. The drive time to parks from Animal Kingdom Lodge usually took about 20-25 minutes each way. It was a lovely hotel, but next time we do WDW, we might stay at a less expensive hotel because we didn't spend much time in our room. We prefer spending our time at the parks.

Worth the value

Great hotel! Stayed here as we were very interested in the animal theme of the resort. The prices per night were fair and on the lower end of the spectrum as far as deluxe resorts go. As we didn't arrive to the hotel until after 6PM, it was a pleasant surprise to see that our room was automatically assigned to us already and we could head straight to our room and use our magic bands instead of having to wait in line for the check-in desk. Our room was nice, although we did not get the King bed we requested. Instead, we got a room with one queen and a bunk bed, which was a little strange because our party was just two adults. I'm not going to lie, I did climb to the top of the bunk bed to see how it felt, but decided to come back down in fear of breaking the bed. Ha ha..I suppose the only negative during The our stay was that our luggage was not delivered to the lodge correctly as there was a miscommunication with bell services. We had to wait a while for our luggage to arrive as it was delivered to the wrong resort. Oh, and I should also mention that this resort is farther away from most of the theme parks than the other deluxe hotels (other than DAK of course).Other than that.. As far as the restaurants go, they were all great. We tried the Mara, Boma, and Sanaa and had no complaints. I would stay here again in the future.
