Perfect place for families to enjoy!

Posted Jun 23, 2017
Pros: Clean
Location: So close to everything.
Jeff at the front desk was amazing and the staff was all about customer service. This is Disney so you pay for everything so just know a vacation here is not cheap but worth it.

Hotel is awesome, the convenience of Disney buses. Pricey but we'll worth it.

Small rooms. Stingy with linens. Nima restraunt is nice but over priced like all Disney restraints.

Great family hotel

As can be expected, the AKL is a fantastic option for those looking for a family stay at Disney World.

Nice hotel with a magnificent view!

Seeing the exotic animals in the hotel's backyard is definitely a one of a kind experience. The hotels lobby is specious and nicely decorated with African artifacts. The rooms however are rather small and not particularly comfortable.

Overrated

Posted Mar 29, 2017
Pros: The hotel offers a wide range of activities. Staff in general are very nice and courteous. The decor is great. Lots of space to have long walks
Cons: Restaurants should stay open till past 10 pm. Right now only Mara is open late. The guest rooms need to have some special features
Animal Kingdom lodge has a striking lobby very nicely done with an excellent ambience. But its too expensive for the price, the guest room is just functional. Nothing exciting about the room. The animals are hardly visible on the Jambo house side. Food is very average. The main restaurants close at 930 pm which is absurd considering the theme parks close after 9 so you will likely not be back before they close

Great family place

Atmosphere is amazing! I have been to Africa and they do a great job of making you feel like you're on Safari. The only thing to complain about would be the long wait times to eat and the bed was a little hard
