We reserved a savannah view and when we arrived we had a full view of a staging area and a lower rooftop! We had our room changed but the way the rooms are designed is like a horse wearing blinders, you can only see the savannah straight on, so if the animals were not in your limited view area you...

I usually stay at the Wilderness Lodge and I wanted to try this one because I love animals. I don't think this hotel compares to the Wilderness Lodge. It doesn't seem to have a pleasing and cohesive theme like the other property. The pool area isn't as pretty. The biggest problem here is the aesthetics or beauty of this property....

My family has been Disney Vacation Club (DVC) members for 16 years. We do Disney annually and usually like to rotate staying at the various DVC resorts on our trips. This year we decided to stay a couple of days at Kidani Village after our Disney cruise as we'd never had an opportunity to do so before. I was really...

Disney's animal kingdom resort is nothing short of fantastic. The rooms are well kept, well themed, and the savannah view makes this nothing short of a perfect experience. Although you are certainly paying a premium, to wake up to giraffes right outside your window is awesome. As per many other peoples comments, you will want to request a room close...

I am writing this from my damp room sitting on my broken down bed. This is our second time at Animal Kingdom Lodge in as many years. The common areas and animals remain fabulous. Everything else needs a complete reboot. It started at check in. Our cast member took an hour to get us checked in. He claimed it was...

When you walk into the lobby of this warm and inviting authentic African themed hotel you are greeted with "Welcome Home"! ...and our family did feel at home. The lobby is the most beautiful we have ever seen, and the smell of the food in the restaurants fill the air. Any room with a view of the animals on the...

Once again we were able to stay at the AKL in the Savannah Rooms. Our previous stays there was a bit more delightful than our most recent one(SEP2013). The location of our Savannah Room this time, was located around and seemly near the back of of the lodge. We didn't see as many animals from the balcony this time. Nor...

My daughter left her new birthday jeans in the room and they are forever gone. We traveled a short distance to celebrate her birthday and I splurged to get her a nice pair. She tried them on and said the waist was too big so she took them off and they were never seen again. I unpacked after we got...

The foyer of the hotel is amazing! Like no hotel I've ever stayed! On advice from other reviews we requested a room close to the reception, and reiterated this at checkin - and were given the first room in the corridor on the 3rd floor (reception level). This made life a lot easier, as having taken a walk around the...

We took our young kids (ages 9, 6) for a short weekend. This was our first visit to Disney World. I choose to stay at Animal Kingdom even though it was farther out because my kids love animals. Check in was great, we stayed with the concierge level. Our room overlook the animals, kids had bunk beds. The room was...
