Stayed at Jambo House with a room that looked over the animals. It was interesting, but not worth the extra money. The room was small, the TV outdated and the excitement over seeing a few giraffe, Wildabest, and Antelope faded quickly with the kids. The restaurants we

This is a fantastic place for wandering around and just taking in all the uniqueness that you expect from Disney. Well done, team Mickey! I must also add that if you care about the cost and are a person who only uses the room to sleep and then hit the parks hard, stay at one of

While I'm glad you appreciate the beauty and features of this Resort, I'm sorry to hear you weren't thrilled with your room. I truly believe there's a perfect Resort for each and every person depending on what they're looking for! Since you're a big fan of spending the whole fun-filled day enjoying our wonderful Theme Parks, I recommend checking out a Resort that's in the middle of the action, like Disney's BoardWalk Inn! Just a short walk away from both Epcot and Disney's Hollywood Studios, the location is truly unmatched. Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts. No matter where you decide to stay next, I hope you'll still stop by Jambo House for a delicious meal at Boma-Flavors of Africa! Darby Disney Social Reviews

My husband, daughter and i had the absolute pleasure of staying at AKL Club Level for a short vacation in March. (Our stay was so fantastic that we added an extra day on the end). I wasn't sure about the value of reserving a club level room but we are so glad we did. The

Thanks for stopping by and leaving us with your thoughts on Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge! I'm ecstatic to hear you had such a wild time with us, and even had some great interactions with our Cast Members! I have to say, I don't blame you one bit for loving the Resort so much you decided to stay an extra night. One of my favorite aspects of the Resort definitely has to be the number of activities that are offered - if you really wanted to, you could easily spend an entire day just exploring the area! Once again, thank you so much for sharing your kind words with us. Whenever you're ready for another wild adventure, please don't hesitate to come on back! Nathan Disney Social Reviews

My wife and I stayed for three night on a business trip for my work. The whole resort is themed like you are in Africa. The lobby is incredible to walk through. There was a fire pit inside so you could enjoy and a tour guide to provide you with little known facts about Africa.

I can’t think of a better place to be during a work conference than Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge. From the luxurious lineup of amenities to the spectacular views, what’s not to love? I do apologize for the firm and uncomfortable beds, and I’m relieved to see the other aspects of your visit were enjoyable overall. I wholeheartedly agree with you about Boma. The breakfast is not to be missed! Exotic African foods along with American classics make for the perfect start to your day. I also appreciate you including the wonderful photos with your review. They help capture the unique spirit here. Whether it’s for business or pleasure, we hope to welcome you back for another visit soon! Adam Disney Social Reviews

Savanna view room--nothing else like it.
Could anyone tell me which rooms have been renovated to date?
Sorry no idea. Why not call the hotel? Good luck and have a wonderful stay.

I am thinking along same line as others who answered your question. I would check to see if your husband purchased a room with club level access first. Then maybe check if he purchased the extra fast passes along with the club level access. I bet you could see that on your trip account. There are plenty of places on the web to see what is offered at club level. With or without it though, Animal kingdom lodge is awesome and you will have great time.

Pretty sure you can only book 499 days out for a resort only reservation. Packages I believe are even less time out. I would call Disney reservation line though direct to confirm. Totally agree with your wanting to get plans in place. Lots of planning goes into a disney vacation but it’s totally worth it.

"we did ask for a room not too far from the lobby and the pool elevators in advance of our visit and we got exactly what we requested"
"Savannah view room is a must"
"don't ask for near to the lobby, you might overlook the car park"
"Savannah view. Don't worry about being up super high. We were on the 2nd floor and it was perfect."
"Book a standard view- you can see animals at many viewing points throughout the resort."
US$ 303 - US$ 754 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
