Park / Resort:

The stunning Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge opened in 2001, alongside the Animal Kingdom theme park. The African-themed accommodation is impressive, but the real draw is the expansive, animal-packed savannah that sits at the rear of the hotel. Rooms that overlook this come an at extra cost, but there are a number of public viewing areas around the hotel, too.

The African theme extends into the Lodge's two main restaurants, Jiko: The Cooking Place and the buffet-style Boma: Flavors of Africa. The Mara offers more traditional American fast food, while Sanaa is located in the Kidani village Disney Vacation Club area and also serves African cuisine.

One of the Best Hotels I Have Ever Been to

I have stayed at many luxury hotels and I have to say this was one of the best hotels I have ever stayed at. AS soon a s I stepped foot in the hotel I was surrounded in culture. The beautiful carvings and lively African music playing all play a key part in why I loved this hotel but Also the workers are really from Africa. If you are thinking of going to Disney go to Disney`s Animal Kingdom Lodge of the villas.
