The past few days I have been on a work retreat at Disney. I am loving staying here. There’s just so much packed into one hotel, granted this is no ordinary hotel, this is one of the nicest hotels at Disney.
They have 2 outdoor pools, multiple restaurants, and a poolside bar. The resort is smoke-free!
Animal Kingdom Lodge Restaurants
I’ve been lucky enough to eat at three restaurants here Mara, Sanaa, and Jiko. I have not tried Boma, their buffet restaurant.
Sanaa – Sanaa is fantastic and has excellent views of the animals. While you dine on curry and you can watch the animals.
Jiko – Jiko is an amazing experience, but it’s expensive.
Mara – Mara is super affordable. It’s the resorts grab and go restaurant. They have one of the best desserts at Disney, Zebra Domes.
Here are some pictures of my room. I had it all to myself since my husband is still deployed and left the kids at home with Grandma.
Animal Kingdom Lodge Rooms
The room I was in had one queen bed, bunk beds and a portable crib in the closet. Which means a family of five could stay in here no problem!
In Room Amenities
- Free WiFi
- iPod docks
- Coffee maker
- Iron and ironing board
- Blackout drapes
- Private balcony
There was a coffee maker and a mini fridge.
Through the window there is a lovely patio with chairs so you can sit and watch the animals.
There was a double sink area and a separate room with shower and toilet. In my opinion, it is often the bathroom area that can show the age of the hotel and it looked brand new.
