"Kidani "
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed March 27, 2017 NEW
Kidani Village is a beautiful, relaxing lodge with updated units and great views of the savanna with animals wandering around up close. The pool area has lots of shaded sitting areas and children's crafts/ games going on all day. The only negative are the outdated shuttle vans that run between Kidani and the Jambo lodges. They need to be replaced with easier accessibility and more space for passengers.

"Always a favorite"

I love the Animal Kingdom so much that we stayed here for our honeymoon in December. This is the perfect hotel for any Disney trip, but especially one during the Holidays. With its lodgy feel and gorgeous Christmas decorations, I will always vote to stay here during the winter months. I highly recommend both Jiko and Boma for some distinct, delicious cuisine!

"In a way, the most secluded hotel in Disneyworld but full of atmosphere and amenities."
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5

The place is very impressive upon entering it. It has a built-in savanna were they let giraffes, antelopes and zebras loose. The rooms that face the savanna cost more and the overall price is not cheap unless you come up with some incredible deal (it has happened to us). Like the other resorts in WDW, this hotel boasts anything you may expect from it. The pool area is incredibly nice, the restaurant is very good and used to feature more African fare but being in America they eventually had to tone it down to suit local tastes. I personally liked it better when most of the food at Boma had a more African flare to it. Why would you want to eat the same thing you can eat at any of the gazillion restaurants you find all over the U.S.? The decor is cool and access to the parks is very easy by waiting for the buses to come, pick you up and take you to whichever park you have chosen. If you brought your own car, there is plenty of parking and they will give you a piece of paper you put in your dash so that you can come in and go out in your car whenever you wish. The place is one of my favorite hotels in WDW and the only one of the higher end ones that I have found some good specials on. Back in 1976, we stayed over at the Contemporary Hotel but these days it is almost cost prohibited to stay there. After all, in DisneyWorld you are most likely to go to your hotel only for sleeping and having breakfast. The Animal Kingdom Lodge gives you that in style and much cheaper than the Contemporary. This comes highly recommended.

"The animals are amazing, but the place is kind of a dump"
TripAdvisor user rating 2 out of 5
Reviewed March 27, 2017 NEW
We've been on a Disney cruise, what was truly terrific in every way, so I was all the more shocked that the Lodge was a dump. The lobby was cool and majestic and very Kenya lodge on steroids feeling, but the hallways and rooms were dated, dark and depressing. The food (especially the cafeteria) was quite poor. We had a reservation one night for dinner and were informed we'd have to wait 1/2 hour past our time (which is not acceptable for a family resort with little kids involved). The pool felt half-baked and low end. This place must be high on the Disney list for a total gut renovation. Were it not for the animals (and you have to pay up a lot for the "Savannah Room"), I would have given this 1 star.

"As close to being in Africa as you can get."

Animal Kingdom Lodge is like being in Africa without leaving Florida. The interior decorations are authentic from Africa and the workers are natives with their own stories to tell. Being able to walk around the grounds and see all the animals is like taking a safari on foot.
