This was my first time staying at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge. I have stayed at other Deluxe hotels (Yacht Club, Wilderness Lodge, Contemporary, Grand Floridian) and this was by far the best hotel for theming and attention to detail. It may not be as convenient as other hotels (only bus transportation) but it is worth the stay!

Disliked: Cleanliness
The only positive experience we had was with Guest Services when we checked in after that it was horrible. At the gift shop there was no "Hi or thank you" after our purchase it was more like buy and get out type of attitude. In the morning for breakfast the samething no "Good morning or thank you" or acknowledgement that you are there very bad customer service. Then on one of the days we didn't leave the room until later in the afternoon and someone from the hotel came knocking on our door to do a wellness check but she came three times before actually coming in to do a check and by then we were all leaving to go to park. She proceeded to walk through our room but didn't clean it or send someone to come clean it so not sure what the point was of her coming in and just walking through the room. Room wasn't a mess but the one small garbage that was in the room could have been emptied. Hotel is beautiful and aside from the first person who checked us in the other employees we came across need to be trained on customer service or find a different job not customer service based.
