This is a great hotel, although be prepared to walk a lot because unless you are lucky and get a room close to reception you'll have to walk miles! It's everything you expect from Disney and real interesting if you get a Savannah view ( more money but I bet if they are not too busy they'll give you one...

This was my 30+ time to Disney. This time it was just my husband and I and we wanted to have a different experience from all the times we went with our children. The Animal Kingdom Lodge was beautiful. We paid the extra to have a Savannah view it was worth the extra money. As always Disney has never disappointed...

My sister and I stayed in the Jambo House section of the hotel and absolutely loved our stay! We had just booked a "standard view" when we made the reservation, so were not expecting a savannah view but we were pleasantly surprised when we walked into our room and saw we had one! We were in the far left corner...

1) I recommend the Jambo house. The Jambo House (or Lodge) is quite a distance away from the Kidani Village. It’s about a 20-minute walk. I thought staying more central in the Lodge was nice. 2) Club Level was a good value. It gives you access to their concierge lounge. They do a good job keeping it stocked and have...

We have been going to Disney for years and were extremely disappointed with the Animal Kingdom Lodge! Our room was dirty, leaky shower, bathroom so small you couldn't close the door if you were sitting on the toilet! The ONLY plus was the view of the animals from the small balcony. The service was lacking, poor slow room service! The...

We stayed in the dvc villas by renting points. It was amazing. We never wanted to leave. We didn't even want to go to the parks:). The place even smells amazing! There are fireplaces to sit all around. The room was sparkling clean and comfy. We had a great view without paying extra. The elevators are fast. The pool is...

We stayed in Animal Kingdom Lodge, Jambo House. The staff are superb, all were friendly, helpful and polite. The animals that wonder the grounds are lovely to watch. One morning I woke up and could see over 30 animals and birds from my baloney. The whole thing about this hotel is the animal so a savanna view room is fantastic....

We loved our stay at AK Lodge, definitely get one of the Savannah View rooms if you can. The kids loved watching the animals roam by while sitting on the balcony. They have several unique experiences for guests staying there.

I'll start off by saying there was nothing wrong with Animal Kindom Lodge, it just wasn't a good value for the money. We stayed there on a Thursday and Friday night in a Savanna View room with bunk beds. We have two kids ages 3 and 4. On the positive side, the customer service was very Disney by which I...
