"Love the Pool"
Room décor is a bit tired. Dark bathroom with no room. The toilet was dirty upon arrival, but all in all that was it. We were in the Jambo house and the pool is the best!

"You feel like you're on vacation"
The Animal Kingdom Lodge is amazing. The whole experience allowed us to feel like we were really on vacation. Our kids loved the water slide. It was slow enough that even our 3 year old was able to use it. I would also recommend using the shuttle to the parks. It only took 10 minutes to get to the magic kingdom and we didn't have to wait more than 10 minutes to get picked up. We will definitely stay here again if we come back to Disney.

"Amazing, Awesome and memorable for all ages"
We stayed Aug 13-17th - this place is something else! Roaming animals.. The lobby is most impressive - huge but comfy with all the right touches. African splendor, delicious smells. Comfy rooms...Great service throughout. A couple of quibbles only - could not for the life of me get a complimentary bottle of water anywhere in that hotel...shocking given the 100+ deg heat and nr $300 p/nite rate. Just seemed a little "cheesy." Mara's is the least cost option for food on the go - would have enjoyed a few more food choices. But also where I got the best advice about the food plan - unless you're a family who eats 3 meals + a couple of snacks every day (and who does that on vacay??) then the DW meal plan is NOT for you!

"Meh, overpriced."
Room was clean, view was just OK, animals pretty far off in the distance, only saw giraffes and occasionally antelope. Beds are VERY uncomfortable, really hard and the pillows feel like folded up towels. Main restaurant is way overcrowded. Even with a reservation it takes 30 minutes to get it. But once you are in its just a buffet. I say "just" a buffet because the quality is on par with a cafeteria. Felt like Clark Grizwold in Vegas vacation. Also its expensive $20 for kids $40 for adults. Room service was better. The other restaurant probably has better food but its for shirts with collars only and is $$$$. It was pretty empty whenever we peeked inside. Stupid move to put it there because the herded masses all go to the buffet anyway. Buses to parks are confusing, especially to water parks that run on different schedules.

"It Felt Like Home"
The experience at the Animal Kingdom lodge was wonderful! From check in to check out the staff make you feel welcome and taken care of. The concierge was very helpful, even helping us make accommodations for our elderly Spanish speaking grandmother. They even insisted we call them instead of worrying about cleaning up a restroom accident. The rooms were wonderful, the hotel beautifully themed. The restaurants were fabulous. The breakfast buffet is excellent. And we cannot recommend enough the fine dining restaurant, Jiko. Despite being fine dining, the staff were very family friendly, even when we showed up 15 minutes to closing. The food was also excellent, though somewhat pricey. The hotel is located furthest from the parks, so we used the convenient disney buses. The trip to and from may take 15 minutes, but the drivers were friendly and efficient, well trained to handle handicapped riders. It was always very comforting to know we were heading back to the Animal Kingdom Lodge.

"What's all the Roar about?"
I expected more from a Dusney Hotel. There was nothing that made you feel you were at Disney in the room. I felt it was outdated. I would have liked to see more animals. I took advantage of the early check- in and had requested a bunk bed, savannah view and lastly a top floor and all I initially received was a top floor and view of parking lot. The lobby is beautiful and restaurant by pool is very reasonably priced with good food. I felt I received more from the moderately priced hotels offered through Disney.

"Eden, paradise right outside my balcony!"
My husband teaches English (45 years now) and includes Animal Humanities and Nature Writing in his courses. He was absolutely in heaven with our room so close to nature at its best! We loved the touches in every part of this enormous African lodge that was probably as close to real as one actually in Africa! EXCEPT, we had every comfort imaginable. As vegetarians we were pleasantly surprised at the many places to eat both in and around the lodge that served creative food that would please those of all appetites.

"Trip with grandson"
We took our 2 year old grandson and his parent there so we could go to Disney Animal Kingdom. We had a view of the wonderful African animals just outside our balcony. All of us enjoyed having the view of them during the time in our room. With a 2 year old we spent a lot of time there so it was very entertaining. The only thing I would do different would be to made dinner reservation in the lodge restaurant early enough to be sure to get a table in the place we wanted. The food was good but hard getting reservation for the time we wanted. Overall we did have a magical visit.

"Animal Kingdom Lodge Disney Resort Disappointment!"
The hotel setting was very nice. The restaurant Boma Breakfast Buffet was outstanding. The staff person who checked us in at the hotel was not very helpful and did not provide any details about the services provided during the check in process. The room was nicely decorated but very dirty. The rug was dirty, the bedside tables had a bunch of used toiletries in them and the top of the TV Stand had cereal on it.First time staying in a Disney Resort Hotel. Better off going back to Hilton Hotel.Never have to worry about the cleanliness of a room!

They did have some food in the gift shop such as bread, milk, ham, cheese, bagels, snacks, etc that all really help cut down the cost.

"A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!!"
LOVE LOVE this resort!!! Flew from Los Angeles on a red eye flight, so we arrived at 8:30am...waaaay before the check in time of 3pm. We were directed to the check in counter by a very friendly hostess. Our original booking included a pool view room with bunk beds. The check in girl was extremely courteous & bubbly. She asked if we were celebrating anything in particular...why yes we are! A high school graduation & my birthday!! YAY!! What a delight it was when I found out we got upgraded to a savanna view room on the 4th floor, got immediate check in and got a late check out (1pm). The room had a stunning view!! Giraffes, zebras, ostriches, various birds. Super relaxing!! The room was clean, wonderful shower with the best pressure (the shampoo practically blew off my hair lol), the beds were ok, a bit too hard for my liking. This is a beautifully decorated hotel, I swear I felt like I was somewhere in Africa. The food is yummy. Most days we dined at The Mara (quick prep food) and we had the breakfast buffet at Boma (very tasty, $23 a person). The pool is very nice & clean, but only 4'11" at the deepest part. The buses are very convenient to get around Disney World (about 30 min ride to the Magic Kingdom & downtown disney), and they are located right around the corner from the hotel main entrance. We stayed at the resort for 8 days and I loved every moment (except the horrible humidity). I highly recommend this resort!!

We had a wonderful stay at the Animal Kingdom lodge and would highly recommend to anyone. We have a 4 year old and 2 year old and they were thrilled to look off of the balcony at the animals and to see the animals out every hotel window as they went down the halls. We spent time at the pool and really enjoyed that as well.

"Fantastic"
Immediately when you walk through the doors, you are greeted with a fantastic view of museum style artifacts, unbelievable décor and excellent staff. The room was excellent; it had a view of the North East paddock of animals, which improved when we stepped out on our balcony. We enjoyed the comfortable bed, great view and could not believe that we could be so close to over 50 animals, that can only been seen in Africa, right outside our window. While we stayed, we ate at three of the restaurants, Sanaa, Boma and The Mara. Each was fantastic in their own way, and well worth the money, we spent. Sanaa, offers a blend of India and African flavors in a unique setting. It was quite different and wonderful. Boma was an all you can eat buffet full of African cuisine that was unbelievable. Everything on the buffet was good, which is hard to do. (Kind of pricy, but worth it if you can afford the experience). They offer a breakfast and a dinner buffet; hit both of them if you get a chance. Last, but not least is The Mara, this place was great as well, less expensive and still fantastic with tastes of Africa, but some American food items as well. Great over all stay and experience.

Short but sweet. Hotel room with A rush view was excellent. Daughter woke up every morning and opened up the blinds to see what animals she would see outside her patio. Restaurants were great, but pricey, it's Disney. Great pool area with plenty of activities for families but the $500.00/night price tag is a lot.
