This place has it all. It really does.We stayed for 10days this past April, and we had a savanna view room. It was awesome. My kids loved to go out on our balcony and see the animals every morning. The restaurants are amazing, although Boma was by far the family favorite. My kids loved Simba's Cubhouse, which was a great kids getaway that also gave mom and dad a little break. The pool and waterslide were so amazing. My son loved the slide. This resort is the gold standard for luxury, fun, and Disney. Hands down the best resort Disney has. We're already planning our next vacation, and we WILL be staying there again.
Regular rooms are small and nothing special, but this hotel is so beautiful and being able to see African animals outside of your room is incredible. Just being in the lobby makes me happy! I also love viewing the animals at night through the night vision goggles and bundling up around the fire and listening to stories. I will be staying here again but in a villa next time! Most of the people who work there are so nice, friendly, and very helpful!
LOVED IT! We had a two bedroom, it was more space than we needed with 2 families consisting of 5 adults. The room was clean and spacious. If we ever go back to WDW this is where we're staying. The kitchen is handy and nice so you don't have to eat out for every meal. The animals in the Savanna offer a great time to just sit around, visit, and watch. Far more educational than any WDW hotel. The halls are decorated with traditional African artifacts, clothing, etc. with labels and explanations. It's off from the other parks but just follow the sounds and it doesn't take too long. Rent a car- it's worth it not to ride the WDW bus transportation and have to wait to be shuttled from one place to the next and avoiding all the smelly sweaty tourists- esp. if you're going in the summer time. Enjoy this one of kind place!
I recently returned from Disney World and a 4 day Disney Cruise. I spent 3 days at Animal Kingdom Lodge. It was wonderful. I took about 1000 pictures of my experience to use in my classroom. I can aasure your that Disney Makes Dreams Come TRUE. I use a walker and they did everything possible to make mt experiene one to remember. I went to Disney world with 8 other family members. I left them behind and went on my cruise. My wish was to get in Cabrbbean and Disney staff members made it possible. Anyone who has a disability or a family member with a disability, DO NOT hesitate doing anything Disney. It was an experience of a lifetime and I am making plans to return the end of the year or the fisrt of next year as well as in the summer 2010. Nothing is perfect. but my ex[eroemce was as close as you could get.
You have to pay for what you want and I did. Our stay was great from the moment they greeted me, took my keys, and unloaded my car for me. We had a room with a Savannah view so we got to go to sleep and wake up with a great view of the animals from our balcony window....giraffes, antelope, birds, and a few I cant even name. The room service food was great and we got more than enough food every time. Hassle free shuttle to all of the theme parks. The African themed restaurants at hte lodge were pricey but good, a taste of something different. Huge pool, several hot tubs, an outdoor playground, and a bar. The beds were super comfy. Convient gift shop. And my 2 year old loved the 7:30 parades through the lobby downstairs. I even had to buy him his own instruments. A couple of African employees teach the kids a song and let them go through the lobby parading and dancing for everyone to see. The rooms were very quiet. Despite the amount of people there we never heard anyone. We had a great time and I cant wait to go back.
The atmosphere was beautiful. However when we got to our room and started to unpack our kids found a dirty diaper. The manager was not apologetic. When we left our car had been hit. As much security as they have we were quite surprised they do not have cameras in the parking lot.
The rooms were okay. We loved the pool and the jacuzzi.
This was the first time to Disneyworld for us and The Animal Kingdom Lodge was a great experience. We were upgraded to a Savannah view without having to ask for it (as was our plan). The ability to sit on your balcony to watch the animals go by was fantastic!!! The hotel staff ( front desk, restaurant and bar) was always friendly , especially at the bar overlooking Boma. We bought bottles of wine at Epcot each night and every bartender opened the bottles and offered glasses at no charge. The room was clean and bright. The only downside is that it was a long walk from our room back to the lobby and common areas. I would for sure stay again.
there is nothing to dislike...it's perfect it may be hard to believe nothing compares to the disney resort experience. when you make a reservation ask for the savannah view which is where you wake up to animals surrounding your room.if you can't afford the savannah view no worries they have an area that's right outside the lobby where you can come face to face with the animals and there is a fire pit where you can congregate with family at night and talk about your experiences. it's a very great family oriented resort the pool is amazing there is a restraunt and a cafe as a spa and a gift shop which carries everything from graham crackers to those lat minute gifts you need before check out.it's just a spectacular place overall :)
it was mezmorizing and it will linger in my most precious memories forever the senery like nothing ive ever seen before i would go there again and again and SPLURGE FOR THE SAFARI VIEW!!!! it is worth every cent!
