I loved everything about this hotel from the second we got there til the second we left. I've stayed in many hotels and I've been to Disney 8 times now and I have never been so impressed and happy with a hotel I can't even explain it. Gorgeous lobby, amazing pool, great restaurant options and the animals made the hotel a 10 out of 10 for us.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We had a great time. Everything was as we expected .Genuine Expedia guest review
"Can't beat the Disney experience"
One of the best vacation to date. From the Disney transport to hotel to the Magicbands that incorporate hotel key, park admission, charge card, everything was soon convenient. The room balcony opens out to the African Savanah. The room was clean and the bedding has been updated - no more bedspreads. Food at the various restaurants were great.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Just wish they offered king size beds and the beds were actually comfortable. Everything else is amazing!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A little disappointed"
My husband and I went to Disneyworld on our honeymoon and could only afford to stay on property for one night. We choose animal kingdom lodge because if the beautiful landscape and the Disney difference. The landscape is amazing, the hotel staff not so much. I'm sad to say that because we booked through hotels.com and not Disney it felt like we were […] second citizens. They messed up our king bed request and gave us two queens instead. We asked to move and there was a king right next door that was available. Then our tv was broken and it took an hour for someone to come fix it. Then this morning we wake up to find out that our late checkout request is no longer available. With only one night we really wanted to be able to check out the hotel but I guess they don't want us here. :/ for the price, even on hotels.com. We won't be back.

"Unique hotel experience"
The Animal Kingdom Lodge was a really great fit for us. Seeing the giraffes and other animals canter about every day, sometimes from our own room window, was a highlight. It caters slightly less to the small kids / family crowd (but is still family-friendly) which made us feel fine about being there with no children of our own. It's also less overtly […] Disney (i.e. decoration isn't marked everywhere) which can help provide sanity after a long day at the parks. Only downsides are the room bathrooms -- they are tiny, the shower pressure is unchangeable, and the towels reek of bleach. I'd still stay there again though. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The lodge was quite extraordinary. We enjoyed the views of the animals as well as the pool. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. Our only complaint is the beds. Our queen sized mattress was very old hard and uncomfortable. The bunk beds' mattresses were noisy when the kids moved around during the night. Also the valet parking was $20 not $10 […] per night as was advertised. We will still stay in this hotel again because of it's entertaining value. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great animal views"
The hotel is nicer than most of the other Disney properties, but not amazing. The savannah views are what makes this resort stand out. It's crazy cool to see a giraffe walking by at 10pm or zebras standing around in the afternoon. Other than that, the rooms are kind of small and the resort is not well lit. No real "magic" on our trip, but no complaints […] about the resort. It costs a lot, but where else can you open your blinds and see all those animals? Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Fabulous resort. Gorgeous grounds, pool and lobby. Lots to explore! Got a free upgrade to Savannah view without even asking. Glad I didn't initially pay for Savanahh view because even without it, there's plenty of opportunity for animal viewing. Buses ran often. Staff was warm and attentive, food delicious. Try the African Stew at Mara and breakfast […] at Boma. Food reasonably priced when compared to NYC restaurants. All Disney restaurants are EXTREMELY accommodating for those of us with food allergies- just let your host know and the chef will come out and discuss your options. My only gripe is the size of the room. They're a little on the small side, but more than sufficient for our family of 3. 4 or 5 might be tight. Definitely would return!

This is a wonderful hotel with a beautiful pool. It was relaxing to sit in a rocker and watch the animals love across the savannah.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We had a great time. The staff was great and very friendly. It was nice to see the animals near by. Close to the animal kingdom but took a long time to get to most of the other places. The restaurants were very expensive so be prepared. However there was one where you could buy and take to your room if you wished. Most items were under $10. Would definitely […] recommend it.

"Best vacation of our lives"
We had a truly magical stay at Jambo House, filled with amazing views of the animals, and extremely informative and kind staff. We cannot wait to go back again!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel on property. Good food and amenities"

"Very good family vacation"
All went well, from the airport to check out. We will be back..Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Even though price is too expensive, room condition and hotel staffs are so good!!Genuine Expedia guest review
We had booked this hotel because my son really wanted to see animals right outside his room on the lanai, but we only saw a couple roaming around. The room was small and the staff wasn't all that friendly.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel with amazing views"
This was a great hotel with plenty to do even if you don't go to the parks. Awesome overall. We will be back.Genuine Expedia guest review
We have recently stayed in the hotel with our kids (9 years old). The hotel entrance and lobby are are spacious and impressive. However the rooms are small, dark and claustrophobic. The bathroom (is not really a room but rather a tiny dark chamber. Thus, for a group of 4 this wasn't comfortable to say the least. Our room was facing the pool and this […] meant that we had a constant noise of either drumming classes, kids screaming, or pool staff cleaning the floors (at 4 am). Other cons are: 1. very few food options and pricy food. 2. the resort is quite remote, if you want to eat outside the hotel its at leaf 15 min drive 3. the food in the "fast food" restaurant was discussing - looks and tastes like school cafeteria. The pros are: 1. getting past passes in advance 2. the pool was huge and my kids loved the water slide 3. the animals around Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
One of the best resorts I've ever been to. Every detail of the decor both inside and outside the rooms is beautiful and thoughtful. I felt like I was in paradise.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Loved this Resort"
Loved Animal Kingdom Lodge...animals were always outside our patio! Friendly and helpful staff, quick check-in and check-out. We enjoy all of the Disney Resort Hotels. Animal Kingdom Lodge is great for any age, with or without children.Genuine Expedia guest review
Disney World was even cooler than I imagined. Be back soon!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Everything I wanted!"
We had a Savannah room which was well worth it. The room was beautiful and comfortable. We had animals right outside including giraffes, zebras, & more. I enjoyed sitting on the balcony just enjoying the view. A highlight of my entire trip was watching a baby giraffe running and playing.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Outside is Great"
Anyone expecting great bedding and room amenities will not be happy but unique with animals, campfires and trails.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice view to all the animals"
We had a blast the hotel was awesome. We would definitely dtay again.Genuine Expedia guest review
We paid extra for "savannah view", but we couldn't see any animals from our room. Very disappointed.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great and interesting hotel"
Very interesting hotel where you can view wildlife. The rooms were attractive and very clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful. It was a very well run hotel. I would definitely stay there again and recommend it to everyone. I really enjoyed the Magical Disney Express where they bought your bags to the room and delivered them to the airport for […] you. The staff printed out my boarding pass and checked my bag in at the hotel. I just had to go through Security and to the gate at the airport. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We love this hotel. We have stayed at other disney resort, and this resort is what really impressed us.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great hotel and staff. Great activities and pool. Shuttle did not run really often and room was not huge but loved the hotel otherwise.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Typical disney resort!!"
Extremely expensive!! $30 something dollars adults and another ridiculous amount for kids to eat at bombas buffet! Big deal! Did not accommodate me two lousy hours so that my son would enjoy the pool a little longer on his birthday, were told flat out no! Twice! Soda mugs now charged in some new ridiculous way! Some staff members with attitude when […] asked questions ! Disney has come a long way since I started going in the 80's but thanks to this stay I will not be renewing my annual passes again! Spent thousands of dollars throughout the year and all they do is play with peoples emotions ! The hotels around the downtown disney area have way better prices and are just a few minutes away not worth paying the amount that the resorts charge, think about it , what do you get? You only go to sleep! I learned my lesson , I would do it for my kids, not anymore, there are other places for kids besides disney world! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Awesome experience for the grandkids"
The hotel and the grounds are just beautiful. The kids were so excited to see animals right outside their room. The room was small but adequate.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Okay but not worth the price"
It is a great concept to try to replicate the African Savannah in a hotel. However, the price did not justify the experience. The hotel lobby and gardens were beautiful. However the rooms were small. The restaurants were limited and expensive. The animals were well taken care of and the grounds looked good. However at the end of the day it did not justify […] the room price. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Average hotel. The animal theme was cute, however I thought that you would be able to see more animals. Our room was a parking lot view. Possibly because i purchased on hotels.com. It was nice how the pool was open until 11. They also had a tasty restaurant by the pool.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Everything you could want in a resort hotel"
Quiet and calm during a busy and fun filled vacation. Clean, comfortable, friendly and knowledgable. Wonderful place to see the wildlife and to relax and unwind at any time of day.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great place to stay in Disney World"
We took our grand kids for a 2 night stay. They loved having the animals so close by. Staying on a Disney property is so convenient. The room was small but adequate. Very little time is spent in the room itself. The restaurant offerings were convenient and child friendly.Genuine Expedia guest review
Rooms are small but the staff is excellency. Warm, professional, caring. The amenities are amazing, cultural activities for the children, romantic restaurants for adults, the free night viewing of the animals, the food...everything was all high quality. I would definitely recommend this hotel again.Genuine Expedia guest review
The front desk was not informative about the usage of the disney bands or how to adjust it for kids.Genuine Expedia guest review
I have stayed at many Disney Resorts. This time I was very disappointed. I found the bedroom antiquated, the staffs attitude uninterested and the food prices exorbitant. No value for what I paid. The pool slide was broken and that's all the kids really wanted.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Memories of a Great Resort"
Try the breakfast buffet at Boma! Also, the Mara is a fantastic quick service restaurant. The pool is fantastic and you'll love watching the wildlife from your room. Don't worry, there is ABSOLUTELY NO SMELL from the animals!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"All I could wish for"
We had stayed at Animal Kingdom Lodge once before, and I was underwhelmed. This trip, however was perfect. We were only there for one night, to attend Harambe Nights, so I asked if our room could be ready at noon. The people on the phone were not very reassuring, but when we arrived the room was not only ready, but spotlessly clean. The entire property […] was up to Disney standards, and the staff were (almost) all excellent. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Felt like we were in Africa!"
Very different from the traditional hotel stay. We enjoyed the animals as well as the food. I only wish I had known in advance to either request a room overlooking the animals or to stay at the Kidani Village.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Beautiful inside and out! From the movies, dinners, varies resturants, the pools and campfires everything is AMAZING! Def a must stay again. Animals and grounds are well kept and the staff very friendly.Genuine Expedia guest review
"What a place, was lucky to stay here!"
Beautiful, family friendly - great experience. Amazing animals, fun on site dining and activities. Really nice staff and everything we could have wanted.Genuine Expedia guest review
Everything at the Animal Kingdom Lodge-Jambo House was a great experience. We would definitely stay here again. We have no complaints at all. Having our luggage delivered to our room as well as checking in luggage at the resort and no hassle or lines at the airport was definitely the way to go!Genuine Expedia guest review
Although I paid extra for a pool view room, I was given a corner room on the 2nd floor, near the stair case with a generator below. The view from the balcony was next to nothing and the generator made a lot of noise and gave out a foul smell because of which we could not use the balcony at all.Genuine Expedia guest review
Great place to stay! One of the best hotels for kids.Genuine Expedia guest review
Elegant accommodations, friendly staff and a good restaurant, made for an excellent home base for our Disney vacation. It's only accessible by bus (not monorail or boat) but the Savannah views made up for the slightly less convenient location. If you have your heart set on Disney World, this hotel is a fine choice, however, be advised that Disney World […] now has ongoing major construction in EVERY park, many of the park employees are disinterested kids, and if you're expecting the "happiest place on earth" Disney of old, in my opinion, you'll be disappointed.

"A safari experience off your balcony in the U.S."
My husband was on safari in the Serengeti and my sons and I stayed at Jambo House in the Animal Kingdom Village! Maybe not the same, but definitely similar!!! To see giraffe, zebras, ostriches, and animals that I could not identify from you balcony was an incredibly experience!Genuine Expedia guest review
excellent place for family.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
