Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
I booked the hotel for my son's 10th birthday. I also bought a surprise package. Everything was perfect. They upgraded us free of charge to pool view. The surprise was in the room even though we arrived late. Front desk was very accommodating to kid's requests. The quest for the hidden Mickey's shadow in the hotel was an adventure
Went from September 3-8 with my partner and 11 year old nephew. We had a savanna view room on the 4th floor. Beautiful lobby and nice setup. The savanna view is well worth the extra cost to upgrade! We thoroughly enjoyed our Disney vacation, and all the friendly staff, just beware as on the day of checkout, they are in a huge rush to get you out of the hotel ASAP. We had a Magical Express pickup at 10:00 am and from 8:30 am onwards housekeeping knocked on the door 3 times to ask us when we were leaving. Magic Express picked us up nearly 5 hours early for flight, when they want you to leave, they know how to make you feel unwelcome real fast!
We recently came back from florida. We stayed in a standard room but had two adjoining ones with a door so I could go to check on the family. We were also there when Hurricane Irma decided to appear and we had curfew, So had to stay in the hotel for two days. As the parks were also shut it was fine. The hotel laid on a lot of entertainment to keep everyone entertained. We never lost power and I felt that the cast members in the hotel made everyone safe. Excellent customer service, Excellent cleaning staff. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone. The hotel never even lost power when the hurricane was passing over us.
This was our second stay at Animal Kingdom Lodge and we haven't been disappointed either time. It has the most beautiful lobby and atmosphere of calm, which after a day at the parks is welcoming. We had a balcony which looked straight onto a giraffe feeding station and yes, I love that mouse but waking up to that view and all the animals was amazing and gave the holiday something else. The quick service restaurant is good and far better than the parks quick service ones. Boma and Jiko are so different to the other menus on all the resorts and parks and the food is beautiful, a must if staying here. Boma for trying lots of different dishes at the buffet but Jiko for a fine dining treat. My children really enjoyed the activities around the hotel, especially filling giraffe feeders to earn beads. All staff are lovely but mousekeeping really kept our room clean and spotless. We only used the pool once but only because we spent most of our time in the parks. Only downside is the distance from MK, so the bus journey is long but I think it's a small price to pay for a truly beautiful resort hotel. We will certainly be returning.
We rented a two-bedroom villa in Kidani Village with a savannah view and it was a gorgeous and spacious room. Large living room and kitchen area, 3 bathroom with showers in all and lovely decor. We were there just after hurricane Irma passed so there was quite a bit of clean-up going on and not as many animals around as we expected but we did see several different species throughout our stay including zebra and giraffes. The one negative I'll say is that our room was VERY far from the lobby and pool area, the hallway seemed to go on forever so going back to get drinks or snacks from the lobby store took forever. We didn't get to enjoy many of the amenities of the hotel, unfortunately our visit was cut short a couple days by the hurricane, and the one afternoon we visited the pool area it was nice but seemed to be plagued by a serious bee problem, especially by the bar, there must have been 20-30 in that area and one visitor had stepped on a bee and was being seen by a paramedic. The Lodge is also very far from other things on Disney property except Animal Kingdom park so the buses take a long time to get around. It was a lovely experience and it's beautifully decorated, if we'd had more time to spend there I'm sure we would have seen more animals as well. Overall I'd say we probably will pick a hotel more centrally located next time but it is definitely a lovely property.
