Our Most Recent Vacation

The giant Christmas tree in the lobby took this froggy's breath away!

Frog Family Snaps

What we love

  • Standard rooms are priced similarly to Disney's Wilderness Lodge and significantly cheaper than other deluxe resorts
  • One of the most fun resorts, with savanna-view rooms and plenty of opportunities to see the animals on the grounds
  • Home to more than 30 species of African wildlife — more than 250 animals — plus plenty of public viewing areas
  • Our favorite buffet on property at Boma, which serves American and traditional African dishes
  • Spectacular lobby with incredible art throughout
  • Uzima Springs is one of the largest pools on property at 11,000 square feet
  • Hotel is designed to maximize views of the savannas and animals

Keep in Mind

  • Furthest deluxe resort from Magic Kingdom® Park
  • Not on monorail or accessible to the parks by boat; requires bus or car
  • No quiet pools
  • Maximum occupancy for standard room with two beds is four
  • Furthest rooms are about a 10-minute walk to the lobby, pool and bus stops
  • Smaller standard room sizes than some of the other deluxe rooms
  • No water recreational activities
  • Hotel charges $25 per night (sales tax included) for overnight self-parking
  • Hotel charges $33 per night (sales tax included) for valet parking

Notable Facts

  • The lodge was designed by Peter Dominick, who also designed Disney's Wilderness Lodge
  • Rooms are designed in a semi-circle, following Kraal African village design, to maximize views of the savannahs and animals
  • There are three savannas on property — Sunset, Arusha and Uzima — each with its own look and feel
  • Ostriches are only found in the Sunset savanna; zebras are found in Arusha; giraffes are the only animal found on all three savannas

Frog Family Tips

  • Consider upgrading to a savanna-view room; the view is worth it!
  • Victoria Falls Lounge gets very popular; if it's crowded, try the bar inside Jiko - The Cooking Place
  • Pick up an animal viewing guide from the front desk if you don't find one in your room
  • Request a room on the higher floors for more expansive views; request a room on the second floor to be closer to the animals; the third floor is likely the sweet spot
  • The Zebra trail rooms facing the Uzima savanna offer more unspoiled views; the Arusha savanna includes a large rock formation and public viewing area

Best For

  • Animal-loving families, especially larger families with longer stays, who are looking for kitchenettes or full kitchens, in-room washers and dryers, and deluxe-level amenities

Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge Information

Hotel Information
