Second floor great view but you are there for the parks... Problems with transportation. Food was only so so. Lots of potential but hardly first class for the price. And they fixed the transportation problems... but they shouldn’t have occurred in the first place

Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge is one of my favorite Resorts to visit. The stunning views, rich history, and gorgeous African-inspired decor truly transport you to the tropical savanna. There's nothing quite like starting off a day of excitement with the savanna right outside your door.

While I am sad to see of the disappointments you mentioned, it’s great to know our Cast Members worked to restore the magic to your visit. We strive to provide efficient and safe transportation for all of our Guests, and I apologize for any misstep you may have experienced. Please be assured, you did the right thing by expressing your concerns to your Resort Leadership.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us. It is my hope that we’ll be greeting you with a warm, “Dumela” again real soon!

Had a wonderful time, with a great room overlooking the area where the animals roam. They feed the animals in strategic areas so that you can have an upclose experience with them. The room we chose including access to a lounge, with breakfast, all day snacks, and beer and wine included. We will certainly stay here again.

Room tip: Rooms overlooking the Serengeti are the best.

Dumela, Ernst! I’m roaring with joy knowing you had such a wonderful time during your visit! Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge is already such an incredible experience all by itself, so add on the extra magic of Club Level service, and you have yourself one safari adventure of a visit!

The ability to grab a warm cup of coffee, head out onto your own private savanna-overlook, and enjoy the morning sunrise is a perfect way to kick off a Disney day. It looks like you got some fantastic photos, too!

Thank you so much for sharing your experience with us. Kwahirini, until next time!

We stayed here 8 nights which in hindsight was too many. The hotel is dated, but nice. We were upgraded to a savannah view after construction noise made our standard view untenable.

The staff make the hotel, our daughter adored the bead activities, s’mores and interactions learning about Africa and animals.

However the hotel is really spread out, in general it has a bit of a 90’s feel which is dated. We’re a bit over it after a week.

Hi there, Jocelyn! When you stay at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge, we want you to feel like you are on your very own African safari! While this Resort hotel may not be a perfect fit for your family, I am certainly glad you gave it a try.

It is wonderful to hear that our Cast Members made such an impact on your vacation. They are committed to ensuring you are having the best experience possible, and it sounds like they helped you make some wonderful memories.

For your next visit, I suggest checking out Disney's BoardWalk Inn. The Resort hotel itself is simply charming, and the location is absolutely amazing! There is bustling excitement right outside, and you are within walking distance of both Epcot and Disney's Hollywood Studios. With so much to do, I think this would be a great option for your family.

Thank you for sharing some feedback from your experience. We hope to see you real soon.

We always go hereto eat from the quick serve menu, it’s good value for money and great portion sizes, they also do excellent children’s menu, the lodge itself is stunning, with great views of the savannah, and of all the animals.

Dumela! Thank you for taking the time to leave us with this short but sweet review of Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge and your experience at The Mara.

Did you know The Mara is named for a river which flows through Kenya and Tanzania? Now you do!

I'm so pleased to know you had such a nice visit - from watching the animals on the savanna to dining at one of our delicious restaurants. Until next time!

When staying in a Savannah View room, we find staying in lower floor room is better because the tree tops block the animals higher up.

The pool at Jambo is disappointing to say the least, but has a bar with food and a quick serve restaurant nearby. The Kidani pool is much better for relaxing and slide use, but no food is readily available at the pool.
