It was such a pleasure to stay at Animal Kingdom Orlando lodge. We came across some wild neighbors, as this hotel offers a wild Zoo with all sorts of animals roaming free behind the resort. You will have plenty of room to roam too as this getaway has Free Transportation all around the local area.
Quick access to the theme parks, airport, and other local attractions. Forget Orlando, Lake Buena Vista is huge and has a zillion things to do close by. Oh my goodness did we have fun at all of these places. This area is loaded with some really good bars, if you want to drink some beer or tequila. The poolside bar is just fantastic.
This is a giant hotel and we had no idea. There is all sorts of interesting things inside of the lobby and around the grounds. Sort of the opposite of say a traditional Holiday Inn Express, as this hotel is where you take your time and enjoy the whole property. Very fun, and has some excellent on-site restaurant dining and bars. Yes you can drink your booze here! We very much enjoyed the hotel restaurants.
I would not take the preferred room upgrade for the Animal Kingdom Lodge savannah view. Not worth the money, since you can walk down and get much closer. The swimming is different, with the really sexy female life guards! Disney has very sexy girl life guards.
The pool was our kids favorite activity, but the Zoo area is nice as well. We are locals, but like to stay at the disney resorts. Wee so fun is Pool Slide! Relax in your room as wild animals roam the grounds outside.
Taste authentic foods of Africa and see genuine artifacts. Many rooms in the hotel have a view of the savannah, where wild animals such as Giraffe and Zebra roam. Lay back and relax, soak up the sun, and Splash in the pool. There are so many things to do here, and it's all fun and play.
