I really wanted to like this resort and was prepared to overlook the $1750/night charge until we arrived to find that there wouldn't be a single giraffe or zebra outside our room because they are on a different savanna. We get to instead overlook a hot tub -- not exactly what we were expecting for a room at this price... More

We stayed at the AKL in the end of August. We stayed for 2 nights. The lobby was beautiful. We arrived early and our room was ready. We had a savanna room. The room was small but the view was awesome. A giraffe was starring me down while I had coffee on the deck in the morning. The pool area... More

This was our second Deluxe Disney resort and so far is my favorite! The common areas are beautiful and the restaurants, although spendy were wonderful! The resort is surrounded by several savanna areas so you have exposure to wildlife without leaving the lodge. In the evenings you can use night vision goggles to spot animals. We didn't see any but... More

This resort --is beautiful a bit farther away from all the other attractions in Disney. It offers a quiet spot for guests the savannah is beautiful and you see lots of animals. We were upgraded to a two-bedroom villa and it was exquisite full kitchen, washer, and dryer.

We stayed the first week in April. Didn't realize it was spring break for much of the South. Disney was packed!! Still, AKL did a good job and the staff treated our little gal like a princess. We never waited longer than 10 minutes for a bus to the parks and we loved not having to deal with renting a... More

We had a great time at this hotel. Loved seeing the giraffes & zebras from our balcony. The pool was huge and the staff was certainly friendly and helpful. The only two issues I have were that the room could have used some more storage space (maybe drawers) though it was spacious. The main issue was that, in order to... More

My husband and I stayed at Animal Kingdom Lodge Jambo House Oct. 16-20, and -like others- I was a bit hesitant about the distance from MK and Epcot, and curious about how many animals we would actually see, etc. It is a breathtaking resort. The lobby at Jambo House took my husband by surprise (he did not know that we... More
