The rooms are tiny. We stayed in a queen room with a bunk bed and as soon as we walked in I instantly regretted it. We had no room for our four bags, only one bathroom to get ready in and the restaurants are not affordable for a family of four. I realize this is a higher caliber

In terms of pure logic, you could say it's expensive for what it is, the rooms are small, it was very disappointing that at the time we stayed the main pool was being refurbished... but boy, this place is magical. We had what was described as a "partial savannah view" but in rea

Dumela, and welcome back from your adventure at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge! It’s fantastic to see that despite a bit of disappointment with our current refurbishments, your family had a wild time here. I never tire of the sight of the savanna – there’s nothing better than waking up and stepping on your balcony only to see our animal friends waking up right along with you. I love that you shared a tip for Guests about the location of this Resort. It may not be in a centralized location to all of our Theme Parks, but boy oh boy, does the beauty of this place make up for it! You’re totally right – from the moment you walk in, it’s captivating. Thank you for your review. We hope to welcome your family for another safari in the future. Jenn Disney Social Reviews

This hotel was fabulous! The lodge's decor is beautiful, and the people who work there so friendly. There are plenty of activities for the kids (most are free) and the view from our room was fantastic! Every morning we would get up to see which animals were by our window. The

Dumela, Melanie! Thank you so much for taking the time to write this wonderful review of Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge. This is one of my personal favorite Resorts, so I am thrilled to hear you loved your stay. From the savanna views to the amazing Cast Members, it's definitely a Resort I would choose to come back to again and again. I love relaxing by their beautiful pool, and I'll never say no to a dinner reservation at Sanaa (the Indian-style Bread Service is my favorite!). Next time you're looking to go on another safari adventure, we'll be here to welcome you back! Rachel Disney Social Reviews

We've stayed on Disney for many years now, we decided we'd try Animal Kingdom Lodge. The pool was closed for refurbishment, but to be honest, we really didn't have time to miss it, as we were at the parks or out in Kissimmee.
The layout is sprawling, long corridors. A trip from o

Thank you for sharing your experience at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge with us. From the clean and comfortable rooms to the wonderful Cast Members willing to help with anything, Disney’s high level of Guest service is present here. Though I’m sorry the pool was closed, I’m glad it did not take away from your enjoyment of the Resort. Sitting on your balcony while watching the animals sounds like the perfect way to start the day. It’s one of the best perks of Animal Kingdom Lodge. I’m also happy you took advantage of the Disney Dining Plan. It’s such a great way to save some money and keep those bellies full. Plus, there are so many options for unique dining experiences. It’s a must! I know it can be difficult to choose between Disney Resorts because they are all so amazing, but I look forward to seeing where you’ll stay next. See ya real soon! Kaitlyn Disney Social Reviews

This is hands down my favorite Disney World hotel.

First the perks of staying at a Disney resort if you’re considering offsite: Yes, it is more expensive, but it really does make a huge difference. Disney has nailed service, especially at their top-tier hotels. They are much cl

I completely agree with your thoughts on Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge – it is one of the most beautifully designed and wonderfully themed Resorts I’ve ever been to. I’m so happy you felt the same and that you enjoyed seeing the animals outside your window. Add to that our courteous and helpful Cast Members and you’ve got yourself quite a magical experience. Thank you for sharing some tips and pros of staying at a Disney Resort, I think they’re really helpful and hope that other Guests take your advice. If you didn’t already, I definitely recommend dining at Sanaa the next time you visit. Located nearby at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas – Kidani Village, this restaurant combines delicious African and Indian inspired foods with outstanding views of the savanna. It’s one of my personal favorites! Maybe we’ll see you there next time. Kaitlyn Disney Social Reviews

Hi! When is the pin trading at Animal Kingdom Lodge. I have seen some posts saying Daily at 2pm others say Monday Through Friday at 2pm Thanks for the info!
Also, check with the concierge and front desk, they will be able to help you once you arrive. I surmise it may change based on different times of the year. Have fun! Always wanted to start pin trading!

We are going to WDW in January can anyone tell me what the weather is like this time of year?
Weather varies but mostly in 70s during the day. If a cold snap comes through, can get into 40s. Still a nice time to visit.

I have booked a vacation to AKL in April 2019 and wanted to know how reliable the Disney transportation is to the parks and how long is the journey. Have read mixed reviews and it would be great to know previous guests actual facts. Any response will be greatly received.
We have stayed at Disney properties eight times over the years. I am amazed at how they manage moving people around. Buses from anywhere to anywhere are 99% on time. Have a great time.
