Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge – Still a Favorite!

Anyone who has been reading Ideally Disney for a while knows that I absolutely LOVE Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge I had the pleasure of staying at this awesome resort again while attending a 5-day extensive training session recently at Walt Disney World. I was reminded of all the things that make this resort unique and VERY special. Chief among the AKL’s standout qualities are theming, beauty, amenities, activities and, most definitely, service.

Upon arrival, I exited Disney’s Magical Express to be greeted 3 separate times by cast members before even entering the resort. The last one actually walked me to the desk to wait for an available cast member to check me into the resort. That type of service is one of the best examples of what sets Disney apart from other vacation destinations in my opinion. I was greeted at the desk and checked in quickly and efficiently. The awesome front desk cast member even gave me this beautiful tiara and called me “The Princess of the Day — or for my whole stay whichever I wanted.” How sweet was that?

Walking from the massive, breathtaking lobby of deep, dark wood and authentic African design, I relished every step to my room, being thankful to be back at this favorite resort where I have shared such wonderful memories with my family.

               

Entering my room, I was immediately reminded just how fantastic Disney Imagineers are with theming. Every aspect of this resort has received painstaking effort to make it as authentic a representation of Africa as possible.

   

From the animals on the savanna, easily seen from many guest rooms and certainly from he observation area off the lobby, to the furnishings, lighting, decor and balcony railings.

     

The theming here adds so much to the beauty of this resort.

The beauty of the Animal Kingdom Lodge is tops of all Disney deluxe resorts as far as I am concerned. Dark woods, huge windows allowing natural light, wooden floors, and fire accents all lend themselves to the beauty and feel of this resort. It is comfortable and it is cozy, although the lobby is expansive, simply because of the way they have designed it and how they have furnished it. From the main lobby, several of the unique amenities of this resort can easily be seen. The amenities offered here lend to the unique activities offered at this resort

The activities offered at the Animal Kingdom Lodge are truly unique to this resort. Beginning with the in-room Wildlife Field Guide displaying facts about all the animals that roam the savanna (for discovering on your own), to shopping at Zawadi, which is one of the best gift shops anywhere on WDW property in my opinion, to sleuthing around at night with night vision goggles. This is not even to mention the very popular dining options available at this resort. The Animal Kingdom Lodge offers guests many dining options such as the Jiko and the Boma (table-service restaurant offerings), the Mara (counter-service dining location). You will also find a massage and fitness center, a huge pool with slide, pool bar, fire pit with comfy seating, Hakuna Matata playground area, an arcade and much more. The activities offered at AKL are second only to one other attribute that I think stands out at this resort, and that is service.

There is a level of service at Animal Kingdom Lodge that is the best around WDW. From the cast members who greet guests to the front desk staff, to the folks working in the Mara or serving you at the Boma or Jiko, to the room attendants and bartenders, to the knowledgeable cast members who tell you all about the animals of the savanna at the Observation area, Disney has certainly capitalized on the cream of the crop at this resort. The service is unparalleled as far as my experiences dictate, and I have stayed at many WDW resorts.

Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge is far superior to many other Disney resorts in all of these areas. Being the deluxe resort in the  Animal Kingdom park area and not on the monorail route or in the Epcot area, makes it less convenient for families concentrating primarily on the Magic Kingdom and Epcot, but with all this resort has to offer it is certainly worth the short bus ride to and from all the Disney parks and recreation areas. I absolutely love this resort. I hope you will too!
