Stayed there for 3 days....room was small and bedding smelled! Only animals we were lucky enough to see were mating donkies and few small other animals far away. At the pool the life guard on duty didn't want to get wet when I asked him to help my daughter and he (life guard) asked guest in the pool to help...

Just returned from AKL. great place to stay, we had a arusha view on the 2nd floor and it was enjoyed by all. We arrived on the DME bus and it was a breeze getting in as well when we left. Sign in and checkout was a breeze. I requested a room with a view but had one already assigned...

First of all, i have to say it was not a bad experience, but nothing that really stood out either. I thought the biggest pain point for me would be the location because unless you spend most of your time at Animal Kingdom - you always need to travel to the other Parks. What helped mitigate that issue was we...

We had planned on Port Orleans French Quarter, but having stayed at there once and Riverside twice already we decided to pay a bit more for the Animal Kingdom Lodge and loved it. We had a view of the Savannah and it was not the best view, but we did see some animals. I can't say it's really worth it,...

I've been at the lodge a few times for dinner. The lobby had always impressed me but I live in the woods so seeing animals has never been a huge bonus for me. I was persuaded to try a different resort for my Disney trip so we ended up making reservations here. It is definitely a drive from the parks...

My wife and I stayed at the Animal Kingdom Lodge (Jambo House) expecting on some level to have a giraffe stick it head in our patio door. Well, not quite, but almost. There is something about looking off your deck and seeing a part of Africa walking around. We had 5 days and they were filled. One day we did...

This hotel makes you feel like you are in the middle of Africa! Besides presenting amazing restaurants with African tastes, it is luxury and full of animals. Highly recommend if you are willing to pay more for a truly adventure!

The Animal Kingdom Lodge was fantastic from start to end. The staff can't do enough for you. The room was lovely, the surroundings and grounds were superb, lots of animals to see and you don't have to upgrade to a savannah room to see the animals. We were celebrating my dads 70th birthday and the staff were brilliant. He received...

We absolutely loved our stay at the AKL. We stayed club-level with an Arusha savanna view. Our kids (1 and 3) LOVED waking up and looking at the animals (especially the giraffes) from our balcony. The room was well-decorated (the details - like the safari-themed wallpaper and giraffe carpet) are incredible, and everything was clean. The public areas of the...

I want to start out by noting why I knocked it down a star. As wonderful as the resort is, you're paying deluxe resort prices for someone that's far enough from the bulk of the parks to impact your travel time. We've stayed in the Magic Kingdom area and the Epcot area and I guess we've been spoiled by shorter...
