On our recent stay we found a deal for animal Kingdom Lodge that included Concierge level. The difference between a standard room and the concierge level was about $45 a night and was well worth the money. In addition to having someone reach out to us in advance of our trip to

Welcome back from your Club Level safari! Staying at this Resort is like stepping right into the heart of adventure, and that feeling is only enhanced by watching our animals roam the savanna. There’s nothing like taking a break from Theme Park fun to kick back and have a snack while you watch a giraffe do the same, just outside your window. While the yummy refreshments offered with your stay are a phenomenal bonus, I hope you were able to try a meal at Boma – Flavors of Africa. I’m not exaggerating when I say they have the best breakfast buffet around! Thanks for joining us in our little piece of Africa. Kwaherini! Jenn Disney Social Reviews

Thanks for joining us on safari, Barb! It’s clear to me your family is always ready for adventure, and this locale is a wild place to start. There’s nothing quite like glancing out your window to find a giraffe just outside your door, and that magic only grows as you make your way toward Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park! I do want to mention that while this Resort does not offer boat transportation, we have consistent bus transportation or our Minnie Van Service available to escort our Guests to their destinations, all day long. We can’t wait to explore the jungle with your family again! Jenn Disney Social Reviews

Our room was big and spacious, The mattresses were very comfortable, the restaurants were convenient. The food was excellent. The best thing we liked was our balcony porch where we could view live African animals and identify them using a chart provided in our room.

Mona, your favorite part of this locale is my favorite part of it, too! There’s nothing quite like observing the savanna from your balcony, watching these amazing animals going about their day and learning how to identify those you may not have seen before. Mix in comfortable, spacious accommodations and delicious dining and you have yourself a vacation that makes you say, “Hakuna Matata!” We hope to safari with you again, Mona!

In my opinion, the Animal Kingdom Lodge is a nice place to stay, but only one time. It has a genuine African feel, nice restaurants, and the rooms are very nice. The hotel itself is also a good value for the rates. So, what's the problem? The hotel is so spread out, its a long

I’m glad you were able to step into the heart of Africa and enjoy an absolutely wild getaway at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge. With four spectacular views of the lush savanna, it is a perfect place for any animal lover. While this Resort is exotic and beautiful, I can understand how you might want to be closer to the action found in our Theme Parks. The properties along the Resort Monorail line sound like they might be exactly what you are looking for. I recommend Disney’s Contemporary Resort for your next visit. Magic Kingdom Park is just a short stroll or Monorail ride away, so you can get a head start on making memories! We appreciate this review and hope to see you real soon! Heather Disney Social Reviews

We usually wait until they have a special offer, I don't think it's worth it otherwise.

"We looked out over the beautiful waterfall."
"Ask for a Savannah view, you'll see animals roaming outside your room, I think it's more expensive though."
"Get a room with the Savannah view."
