I stayed in a queen sized bed/bunk beds room with my elderly parents and my seven year old son. We paid over $500 per night and enjoyed the view from our room every morning. My family loved drinking the provided coffee and watching the animals in the morning. Unfortunately the beds were very hard and the room was a little...

So we went to Orlando specifically to go to Epcot over the Thanksgiving Holiday. I have stayed at many Disney properties but I really love the Polynesian. I decided to give the Animal Kingdom Lodge a try since it would just be a 3 night trip. My first impressions of The hotel were that its beautiful inside and the staff...

Every time you come back into the lodge, someone at the front says, "Welcome home." I'm sorry but I love that. The atmosphere was fun, engaging, and grand. I loved everything about it. The room was very comfortable. The bed was perfect and the balcony overlooking the animals was the perfect touch. Large bathrooms made it easier to get everyone...

Trip to Disney World Nov 29th thru Dec 3rd stayed at Animal Kingdom Lodge. Jambo House. Very nice resort. Everyone should stay their at least once. Other things I did on my trip: Disney Springs – Cirque Du Soleil was good. Worth the price for sure. They did a nice job on remodeling Disney Springs. They still are under construction...

The resort itself is well done! The details of the decorations and atmosphere of the lodge is exciting! Every member of the staff that we dealt with was friendly and super helpful. They do a great job offering activities for kids to keep them occupied and keep things exciting for them. Our room overlooked the giraffes and you could sit...

We had an amazing time at AKL. The rooms were spacious and clean. The building had the most amazing smell and I was trying my best to find out what type of freshner they used. If there was one thing I did not like, it would be the buses. The time for buses to arrive took forever. Also, the bus...

1) Stunning Savannah views from main level and Savannah facing rooms. 2) professional animal education at ground level 3) nice pool area, grounds and hotel lobby You pay more, but if its a once in a lifetime trip, it might be worth it. 2 other excellent moderate level options would by Disney Coronado or Riverside. Enjoy !!

Very nice room with savannah view. It was clean, a bit cramped but realized that you weren't expected to spend a lot of time in there. Really like using wristband to enter and purchases put on our blll with band.

All I can say is that we loved everything about the hotel. From the moment we set foot on the hotel, we were transported to a whole other place (Africa).The lobby is simply breathtaking, the walk to our rooms was nice and the room itself had everything we needed. Our housekeeper, Nora was super nice and helpful. Our kids loved...
