"Absolutely stunning!!!!"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5

We came to Orlando as a 2 week holiday 1 week in this hotel and 1 week in the Hard Rock Hotel. This hotel is absolutely stunning. We couldn't believe how beautiful it was. We had a great view of the animals from our room. All staff was very friendly and couldn't do enough for us. The place is very clean and both restaurant's have amazing food. The quick service restaurant also had a good variety of food avaliable. The beds where lovely and comfortable. The only down side I have is that I didn't think the pool was very big and it wasn't deep at all but I guess it wasn't very deep due to it being a family hotel. But besides that I would recommend this hotel to anyone. We're even planning on coming back here in 2018 can't wait.

"Beautiful hotel!"

Had a fabulous 2 weeks here in Oct. The hotel is gorgeous and full of African charm, the food and drinks in all of the restaurants is perfect, Jiko was one of my favourite restaurants of the whole trip! The pool is wonderful and plenty of sunbeds to go around. The animals were fab and my kids loved seeing the giraffes and flamingos every day. The only slight downside is the location, this is the furthest hotel away from the parks so the bus journeys can take a little longer and you sometimes wait longer than 20 mins for a bus esp from Disney Springs. The hotel were fab during Hurricane Matthew with lots of reassurance along with plenty for us to do when we were hotel bound. Would recommend this to anyone!

We had a wonderful experience on our first trip to Disney World. We stayed in a room with bunk beds, which allowed all four of us to sleep well and be ready for full days at the parks. The drive time to parks from Animal Kingdom Lodge usually took about 20-25 minutes each way. It was a lovely hotel, but next time we do WDW, we might stay at a less expensive hotel because we didn't spend much time in our room. We prefer spending our time at the parks.

Great hotel! Stayed here as we were very interested in the animal theme of the resort. The prices per night were fair and on the lower end of the spectrum as far as deluxe resorts go. As we didn't arrive to the hotel until after 6PM, it was a pleasant surprise to see that our room was automatically assigned to us already and we could head straight to our room and use our magic bands instead of having to wait in line for the check-in desk. Our room was nice, although we did not get the King bed we requested. Instead, we got a room with one queen and a bunk bed, which was a little strange because our party was just two adults. I'm not going to lie, I did climb to the top of the bunk bed to see how it felt, but decided to come back down in fear of breaking the bed. Ha ha.. I suppose the only negative during The our stay was that our luggage was not delivered to the lodge correctly as there was a miscommunication with bell services. We had to wait a while for our luggage to arrive as it was delivered to the wrong resort. Oh, and I should also mention that this resort is farther away from most of the theme parks than the other deluxe hotels (other than DAK of course). Other than that.. As far as the restaurants go, they were all great. We tried the Mara, Boma, and Sanaa and had no complaints. I would stay here again in the future.

"How to see the Animal Kingdom Lodge Animals for Free ( Secrets below )"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed October 19, 2016 NEW
Secret #1 You are allowed to go here for free ( if you are eating at one of the restaurants or the cafe ). Tell the drive-up entrance guard that you are going to eat at "Mara" ( the cafe inside the hotel) then they will let you in. We usually eat at the Mara cafe. Park for free in the giant parking lot then walk up and into the front entrance of the hotel. Secret #2 Stop where they check people in and ask for an "Animal Viewing Guide" ( PS don't put on your Dumbo hat and tell them your not staying here at the hotel ) The Animal Viewing Guide is a checklist and information guide sheet of all the big the animals on the property. This guide is a great souvenir and its really fun for kids and adults to find the animals and check them off.. Secret #3 Next Walk strait back, down the steps and strait out the back of the hotel. Here you can immediately see many animals like: African Warthogs, Thompsons Gazelles, Giraffes, Water Buffalos, Ostrich, Wildebeast, Impalas, ( way to many to list here). I got a picture with a warthog in back of me. When you walk out back you will see guides ( dressed like forest rangers) These are genuine guides from Africa who know all the animals. They will answer questions and they will help you find animals to check off on your list ( if you ask them ). Secret #4 During the day go up the second level and you will see many, many animals out of the giant hall windows. Every so often they have balconies you can walk outside on. They have large chairs and you can sit and relax while you watch the animals. Special Note: At 5 PM to 5:30 PM they put out food for the animals in front of the balconies and picture windows. Dont miss it, this its amazing, you can get some really good pictures with African animals right behind you in the photo. If you come like 3-4 pm you can see and do everything. BTW The second best restaurant at Disney is here. its called Boma. and it is authentic African food. You will definitely need reservations. Secret #5 Nighttime Fireside Stories When you first walk outside the back of the hotel you will see a fire pit. Here at 7:30 PM a real storyteller from Africa tells stories around the campfire. Its an Experience, bring the kids ! We LOVE this place. So, You can get a room here for $275 to $2,700 per night or you can go use the tips above to see the animals for free. :)
