Great Stay and Experience!
Stayed at the Jambo House and loved my stay. Great attention to detail with the decor, loved the beds and the shower was a dream at the end of a day full of excitement. Had dinner at the Jiko restaurant and this highly recommended, if you are on a Disney Dining Package. Had breakfast here one morning which was great too. Really good free bus transportation to all the theme parks. Loved the fact if you buy any souvenirs in the parks you can have them delivered to the gift shop here the next day which saves you carrying them around. I had a Savanah View room but it was close to the reception so didn't really see any animals, but that said I was out all day.
Shockingly Surprised how Good this place is!
This was our first trip to Disney with our 4yr old. So many hotels to chose from but I was intrigued by this place simply because it would have African Animals our side our room. Although Disney is chaotic at the best of time, we loved coming back to our room at the end of a busy day. The rooms were average size. The beds were very comfortable, the food was good, and the amenities, especially for kids, were phenomena. The hotel had great activities from knowledgeable hosts (most came directly from Africa) such as night vision animal watching to fireplace s'mores and a whole lot more. And yes, we saw daily Giraffes, Zebras, Gazelles from our balcony. It was very surreal and I enjoyed just watching these amazing animals. The pool area was great and my daughter loved the slide. I honestly was not expecting much but this hotel rivals many of the top luxury hotels with their services and hospitality. Love this hotel and will definitely be back. For now I highly recommend this place!
Best location for some a relaxing atmosphere!
This hotel I was hesitant to book thinking that the bus anywhere other than Animal Kingdom would be a nightmare. However, what I discovered as a family with 3 young kids that it was the type of hideaway location I was missing from my Disney trips. It just feels so peaceful but also lively in its own way. There’s so much to do and discover, because the activities are wonderful at this hotel. Additionally this hotel has the best food options; their quick serve The Mara is a gem with so many options and interesting ones; Boma their buffet option never disappoints & Jiko their signature restaurant is an absolute dream! If you are looking to get away from the chaos at the end of the day but still experience the magic of Disney this is the place for you. Don’t forget you can walk over or take the internal bus to the Kidani side and use their pool too (from my understanding), we stayed at both this trip so got to experience both sides, loved the Kidani pool but loved the hotel and food better at Jambo House. Only thing I wish was different was their standard rooms or deluxe studios being changed to accommodate families of 5. They were recently renovated and I was so hopeful they would make this change. This is my new favourite hotel and only wish we had discovered it sooner..
NIcely themed hotel
Recently spent a weekend at Animal Kingdom Lodge. The hotel is a fair size. so you may want to consider this when checking in (what room to request). We had a spacious 1 bedroom villa with a view of the pool, just off the lobby. I understand that many rooms are being refurbished, the villa could use a touch up as well, but overall was a great space for our family (with teens). The woodwork throughout the hotel is beautiful but I did find it a bit dark in the lobby. Staff were friendly but at times too busy. I tried to call housekeeping 4-5 times before I could finally get through. They need to up the service with the deluxe hotel prices.
Most special family holiday
Whoa! What can I say about our stay! It blew our precious 2 week stay in Disney’s Yacht and Beach club out of the water! We loved how relaxed the resort was and as always Disney really know how to look after their guests (we had an issue re one of our dinner reservations at Disney springs and Disney were awesome) .. we have visited mostly all of the resorts now for dinner etc and Animal Kingdom is by far our favourite... can’t wait to return
