Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
Stayed here as part of our honeymoon!Amazing! Can not fault this hotel, staff were lovely, rooms were fab, surroundings & grounds were amazing!Arrived late at night, check in staff were pleasant & helpful!Stay here to have the Disney experience!Hopefully we'll be back one day:)
We stayed here recently and the staff is wonderful. Food is ok, kinda cheery, but the kids loved it so all was good. Then my son spilled chocolate milk on the bed. I thought no big deal, they will change the sheets. After a full day out we come back to a room with a made bed with still soiled sheets. So late that night I had to call them to come change the bed sheets.
After staying four nights at Boardwalk, we transferred for one night at the Animal Kingdom Lodge. The views of the animals on the grounds are fabulous. We spent several hours out on our balcony watching the animals and birds as they came and went on the savanna. That alone was worth the experience of staying there for one night.The lobby is impressive and beautiful. Valet service and bell service were as expected from a Disney property. Additionally, the concierge assisted me with a billing question in a very helpful and friendly manner.However, the room was somewhat of a disappointment, especially for a Disney deluxe property. While clean, it was much smaller than the rooms at the Boardwalk - almost too small for the queen bed and bunk bed. There was a scarcity of outlets and lighting in the room - and no charging station or anything convenient for devices.We were unimpressed with the check-in and check-out process. Our room was not ready at check-in time, which I realize cannot always be prevented. And we were not emailed a summary of charges the next morning, which has always been the standard Disney approach.We are glad we had the experience, but likely will not return. There are other Disney properties that are a better value for the cost, and are more convenient to the theme park locations.
The resort was the best one we have stayed at while visiting Disney World. We experienced excellent service from the lobby staff checking in to the mousekeepers cleaning our rooms. The beds were great, and the best sleep I've had while at Disney. The resort has many viewing areas to watch the exotic animals. With activities in the lobby, roasting marshmallows at the fire pit, and a large hot tub, you really would not have to leave to go to the parks to enjoy your visit. BOMA restaurant on site is one of our favorites for their breakfast buffet. We loved this place and splurged on this visit!
It's been 30 years since I took my children to DisneyWorld....and this time I took my grandsons who are ages 5 & 7 years old. Because they both love wildlife, we decided to stay "at the Lodge" so we could experience what it would be like to be on "safari". Our jaws dropped when our magic bus delivered us to the Animal Kingdom Lodge straight from the airport. Mere words can't describe the intricate details put into every facet of this hotel. The grand lobby is vast but filled with tribal garments, drums and many other items. The ornate carvings could only be brought by Disney, and the service is 5-star plus. Our room was complete with a set of bunk beds for the boys, and three huge balconies outfitted with wonderfully comfortable chairs that overlook the wild animals who are eating just below. If your family is wild for adventure, this is one place you need to be!
