This resort is amazing. From the landscaping to the pool to the cast members to the food. There’s nothing to complain about here. The rooms are spacious and luxurious. We didn’t want to go home.

Fair4.0
Pricey for a Motel 6 level experience
While the actual lodge is amazing, our room really was not. For $600 a night, I expected a lot more. Firstly, I was supposed to get a king bed, and they gave us a queen. Secondly, the place has that “cleaning product to get rid of smoker smell” - kind of like a cheap Motel 6 or something. It also smells and feels old, like it’s in desperate need of a complete renovation. The bed and pillows were uncomfortable too, and dining options were by reservation only - and all reservations were taken. So... not awesome. I expected more from Disney, especially as I had just come off a Disney Cruise, which was exceptional... this was a real letdown all round.

Great Resort!
The photos are taken from the balcony of our room! I would stay here again ... And again, and again! Warm, friendly, helpful staff, great food, comfortable rooms ... "Welcome Home!"

Ok stay but pricey
Everything was fine but I don’t think the room was worth what we paid. It was small and nothing special.

Absolutely love Animal Kingdom Lodge at Disney World! Great food, comfy beds, beautiful... and the animals roaming on 20+ acres right outside your room on the Savannah.
