The lobby of Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge has a way of drawing you into the theme, from the extravagant light fixtures to the huge windows overlooking the savanna—you truly captured its essence in your photo! It’s phenomenal you enjoyed the delicious breakfast buffet at Boma...More

Have visited Disney and experienced many of their hotels, but this was my first time at AKL. If you're going to stay here you simply must book a Savanna view room. The spectacle of having all the animals right in front of your balcony is...More

This is my favorite Disney resort! It has fantastic restaurants and I love being able to walk outside and see all the animals. The lobby is beautiful and the rooms are great! It's a father trip to some of the parks, but it's worth it!

Step into the heart of Africa at this magnificent Resort hotel. Inspired by the traditional African kraal, the horseshoe-curved design provides spectacular views of 4 lush savannas that over 200 hoofed animals and birds call home. Delight in dazzling pool areas, exciting animal programs and one of the largest collections of African art in the United States as you experience your own African safari adventure with a touch of Disney magic.

you can’t book from 170 days but you can make all your reservations at 180 days so essentially your last reservation 180 +10 ( if you are staying 10 days ) will be 10 days ahead of offsite guests .
