The animals! A lot of fun!
Animal Kingdom lodge was everything and more than I could have expected. The hotel and grounds were spotless and immaculate. Every morning we woke to at least four giraffes and ostriches roaming the savanna. There were many options for meals.
Beautiful hotel from the balcony you saw giraffes and other animals
Beautiful theming and landscaping and the pool is beautiful
Overall we love this hotel. We were in a room that had not been remodeled and while clean and adequate it needs updating and that was a slight negative
Proximity to parks
Room had bunk beds for 2 adukts
