Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge is a highly-thematic hotel split into two (Kidani Village and Jambo House) that really embodies the ambience and design of a safari-type accommodation that you would find in the wilds of the Savanna! Speaking of the Savanna, Animal Kingdom Lodge has 4 Savanna’s surrounding the hotel with 30 different species roaming free on the plains. Choosing a Savanna view room is what it is all about when staying at Animal Kingdom Lodge…imagine 2 giraffes feeding on leaves infront of you as you sip your morning coffee! Though, the huge Savanna is also right outside Jambo House’s Lobby so you could also watch the amazing animals from the balcony of the lobby every morning if you cannot see it from your room.
Animal Kingdom Lodge has a variety of dining options, The Mara, Victoria Falls Lounge, Boma, and Jiko (and Sanaa if you’re willing to walk), that cater to all dietary needs and palates meaning there will be something for everyone to enjoy on your Disney Florida Holiday. Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge also has great amenities such as multiple pools and a fitness suite.
Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge is a great location to stay when travelling with your children as they have their very own play section, “Uwanja Camp”, with 3 water-play zones especially for the kids! These zones are separated by age, so they are perfect for those travelling with children of all ages, meaning you can sit and watch them play safely from the sunbeds surrounding the play zones!
When staying at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge be sure to take at least one “rest day” from the parks to fully explore the fabulous resort. There are many walking paths around the Savanna’s that you can walk along to see the animals up-close. There are also free tours you can take on the Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge property with specialist animal guides to see and learn more about the animals, as well as meet with one of the cultural representatives at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge to learn more about the resort and the African artwork featured there.
There are also a variety of adult-only activities to do at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge, such as wine tasting at Jiko where you can taste a variety of South African Wines paired with amazing cheeses and fruits! In the evening you can also find campfires where you can roast marshmallows and relax under the stars before heading off to bed!
All in all, Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge is a unique and amazing experience that will make your Walt Disney World holiday extra special and memorable for you and your family!
