Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge
is an African lodge-style resort amidst a 33-acre wildlife preserve. One of 8 Disney Deluxe Resort hotels,
Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge is located in the Disney's Animal Kingdom theme park area.
Featuring over 30 species of wildlife that roam amidst 3 lush, tropical savannas, Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge offers you the unique
opportunity to observe exotic animals from special viewing areas throughout the Resort—and from the balconies of select Guest rooms.
Standing over 6 stories tall, Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge includes 1,292 rooms, authentic African-inspired architecture and the kraal
African-village landscape design—a semi-circle design popular in Africa which offers expansive views of the surrounding savannah and its many animal
inhabitants. Thatched ceilings, large beams, a woven ceiling, hand-carved golden-tone furnishings, real African artifacts and a vast mud fireplace in the main
lobby surround you in the inimitable spirit of Africa.
The main Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge building is called the Jambo House. Just outside the 4-story main lobby, an elevated rock
platform—Arusha Rock—offers up-close glimpses of the animals and a panoramic view of the sprawling grounds. In addition to animals,
thousands of indigenous African shrubs and grasses—including the most recognized canopy tree of Africa, the copperpod—paint a picture
reminiscent of the unspoiled grasslands of Africa.
The Sunset savannah, the Arusha savannah and the Uzima savannah are the 3 savannahs located at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge,
measuring approximately 10 acres each. Each savannah features a unique look and feel, and is home to different exotic animals. Throughout the hotel, there
are alcoves with glass windows that provide views of the savannas. Guests can view animals for 24 hours a day.
With Extra Magic Hours, guests staying at a Walt Disney World® Resort have even more chances to experience the magic. Each
day one of the Disney Theme Parks opens an hour early or stays open up to three hours after regular Park closing, so guests can enjoy easy access
to select attractions - even the most popular ones.
