What is the AKL Resort?

Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge is an African-themed "deluxe" resort in Walt Disney World, Orlando, Florida, USA. It is located very close to Disney's Animal Kingdom theme park and has uniquely situated itself amidst 33 acres of savanna land--and the 200 species of animals that call it home! That's right--guests at AKL have the opportunity to view and observe a private animal reserve, populated with hundreds of indigenous African animals, directly from their hotel room balconies. This experience is unparalled anywhere outside of the African plains.

In addition to the unbelievable opportunity to wake up to the sound of zebras munching breakfast outside of your window, Animal Kingdom Lodge guests are provided a luxurious resort hotel setting, with a AAA Four Diamond rating. The Resort is complete with top-notch service, unique restaurants--including the largest collection of South African wines in North America, a multi-service, award winning massage and fitness center, a zero-entry pool, two jacuzzi hot tubs, a tricked out kids' zone and babysitting center, and fun and educational activities for adults and children.

As if all that wasn't enough, the Animal Kingdom Lodge is also home to the Deluxe Villas of the Disney Vacation Club. Guests staying in the studios, one, two and three bedroom villas not only have access to all of the facilities available at Jambo House, but enjoy the expansive amenities of Kidani Village.

We hope you'll enjoy AKL as much as we do, and are taking this opportunity to give you a little overview of the resort. Feel free to check out and make comments on the Animal Kingdom Lodge image galleries; and discuss your upcoming trip, or ask questions about AKL and Walt Disney World!
