Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge is one of the top resorts at Walt Disney World. We love the resort so much that it’s even ranked as Resorts Gal’s top pick for the best deluxe resort at Walt Disney World.
This guide will provide you with all of the information we’ve collected over the years about the hotel. An excellent place to start is the overview of our most recent stay at the Animal Kingdom Lodge.
Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge Resort is a four-star resort hotel located in the Animal Kingdom theme park area of Walt Disney World. The resort is spread out across 75 acres, featuring 972 elegant rooms and suites at the main Lodge, also known as Jambo House.
Kidani Village, a separate Disney Vacation Club Resort, sits next door to the Lodge, offering nearly 350 additional guest rooms. Members of the vacation club use points to reserve rooms here. However, Disney still makes these rooms available to regular paying guests.
Kidani Village features room types like deluxe studios and villas predominately for larger families or groups. Meanwhile, the rooms at Jambo House range from standard hotel rooms to deluxe studios and villas.
Rooms at the Animal Kingdom Lodge offer either savanna or standard room views. Naturally, savanna rooms are a considerable upgrade. However, this is one of the few resorts we recommend paying for a room view upgrade.
Below are the following articles for planning a stay at this resort.
