Animal kingdom lodge is a nice hotel ...... But There is no Disney magic at all we had a room over looking the animals den but unless your going to sit in the balcony all day it's a bit of a waste The housekeepers don't make any special effort no animals made from the towels or chocolates on the pillows...

I stayed at AKL with my wife and two daughters (4 and 8), in a savannah room. Overall, this resort is very nice. Service was top notch from everyone we interacted with. I wasn't overly impressed with the room. It was a little on the small side, especially the bathroom. Our room was on the Kudu trail, facing the Sunset...

We were celebrating a 47th Anniversary and my husband's birthday and were so happy to vacation at Animal Kingdom Lodge in Walt Disney World. The hotel is breathtaking from the minute you walk into the lobby with its African theme that is carried throughout the hotel, room, restaurants, and leisure areas. We enjoyed every minute we were there and were...

My kids loved it here. They loved watching the animals! They never watched t.v.,they just would sit on the balcony and watch the animals. The Sunset Safari was amazing! Was the best experience of the trip! The only negative part was the bus service. It was far from the parks. One night the bus never came to Magic kingdom, we...

After a rough flight in to Orlando we finally were there to check-in to our resort. Kids were tired and we were greeted by a very kind man at the desk. He noticed the kids (12 & 6) were pretty tired so he made small talk with them. He gladly "up-graded" us to a room with bunk beds we had...

My first time here and we spent two nights in late February 2014. . A totally different hotel experience with the Zoo being on site. We did get reservations only a month before our visit and were facing the pool area. There was quite a bit of construction going on with roof work during our visit. Not a big deal...

Have stayed here numerous times over the years and have always loved it. There is nothing like waking up in the morning to the warm Florida sun, overlooking so many different animals roaming below your window. I have stayed in many of the Disney hotels, but this one will always be my favourite.
