Why We Love This Hotel

  • Never miss a wild sight at this unique horseshoe-shaped resort with panoramic views of animal-filled savannas 
  • On-site waterpark a destination unto itself with waterslides, splash pads and zero-entry pool
  • Get a flavor of the safari life with dining options inspired by South Africa including a wine tasting bar
  • A stay here means access to Disney Park perks including the Magical Express Shuttle, free Wi-Fi and park purchases delivered to your hotel door 


The horseshoe design of Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge showcases spectacular views of four sprawling savannas filled with majestic animals, gorgeous birds and lush vegetation. 

Guests can hop aboard Disney's Magical Express for transportation to and from the Orlando airport, as well as to the surrounding theme parks and resorts -- though the pools at this hotel are theme parks unto themselves, with thrilling water slides, large canopy trees, whirlpool spas and animal observation sites.

Sleeping in a tent is not required here, but rooms evoke the safari-lodge feel with rugged but high-end decor, mosquito net canopies and some rooms have bunk beds.

Complimentary Wi-Fi makes it easy to book reservations at many of the award-winning on-site restaurants, like the upscale South African-inspired Jiko, offering a boutique wine selection, an open show kitchen and two wood-burning ovens meant to mimic the tones of an African sunset.

Guests of Disney Resort hotels receive the benefits of early FastPass+ access, extra hours in the theme parks, MagicBand bracelets for keyless room entry, theme park admission and purchases, complimentary parking and transportation within the resort and to the airport, as well as dining plans for every budget.
