This was my third stay at this lodge. The first 2 times were amazing. This time it was obvious they didn't have personnel. I chose this resort because of the savanna view and enjoying the amenities in the lodge. We didn't plan on spending all day and night at the parks. We were there for 9 days. They don't have animal guides in the room. That is now a QR code for a pdf. Housekeeping was below par. It consisted of emptying the garbage, replacing towels, & toiletries. I found someone in the hallway and asked them to sweep my room. I also had to ask to have my sheets changed. There was trash on the walkways. The bus transportation was slow. Activities and tours still aren't happening. Masks are required indoors, even the gym. The only Disney magic was waking up to a 40ft tall Christmas Tree in lobby. It was beautiful.

My husband & I were overjoyed to see the animals in the savanna when we checked in. Since we spent 3 days at the Disney parks until sundown, we did not see any animals until late in the checkout morning. We were curious & decided to splurge on a savanna front room. However, the walls are paper thin. I was awakened around 12:45am by next door. The coffeemaker worked the 1st morning but not thereafter. The food at the Mara & Bama were very good, especially the breakfast sausages. Curious about the animals, loved their presence, but will not splurge thereafter.

Amazing resort that was everything I expected and more! We had a partial view of the Savannah with a balcony. The rooms were super clean. We opted out of housekeeping in order to help the housekeepers catch up. The food was ok, kind of pricy but heck it’s Disney! The pool was great. The only complaint was that the cast members carry loud chirping walkie talkies. I was trying to relax at the pool and kept hearing CHIRP, CHIRP, CHIRP! Otherwise it was perfect!

We saw just about every animal they had on the savanna. We brought our own food except for 1 lunch at the pool which was very good. The room was perfect and had what we needed. The bus ride to Animal Kingdom Park was very short. The pool areas were great for children and adults. I’m honestly not sure what other people say they didn’t see any animals. We had a very good experience.

Husband and I took a quick trip to celebrate our 20th anniversary. We stayed at AK Lodge about 10 years ago with our kids, and it was even better this time around without kids! The staff were helpful and nice, with that special magical Disney attitude (which was not embodied as well by some cast members in the parks). The room was clean, comfortable, and well maintained. We were upgraded to a Savannah view (lucky us!) and we enjoyed watching the giraffes, antelope, cattle, and other critters roam the Savannah from the comfort of our hotel room. The elves decorated for Christmas while we slept, and the lodge was absolutely stunning! Only complaint - I’m ready for Disney to drop its indoor mask requirement. Otherwise, perfect stay!

Room Tip: Savannah view is worth the extra money. Prepare to wait 30 minutes for buses, so plan accordingly.
