Animal Kingdom Lodge Rooms

Nestled on 74 acres west of Disney's Animal Kingdom theme park, Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge is built in the middle of its own savannah, providing most of the rooms views into the animal sanctuary, with other rooms offering views of the Uzima Pool and Springs. Guestroom balconies overlooking the reserve put guests within 30 feet of the rich grasslands.

Each of the lodge's 1,293 rooms feature handcrafted furniture and art -- much of it made in Zimbabwe. Rich woods and vibrant colors showcase the art of African craftsmanship. For instance, some headboard designs have been inspired by "butterfly" masks. The Royal Asante Suite features a domed, hut-like living room that's truly "fit for a king" with a kitchen, office, dining room and sweeping porches offering spectacular views of the savannah.

Accommodations range in size from standard rooms, to one- and two-bedroom suites. Concierge-level rooms also are available. Each room sleeps four to eight guests with a variety of choices. King-size beds, queen-size beds and bunk beds are available in rooms throughout the resort.

Room Locations

There are three different savannahs - Arusha, Sunset & Uzima.
Your room will overlook one of these savannahs.

The Animal Kingdom Lodge is a horseshoe shape and divided into four sections, or 'trails' -
Kudu Trail, Giraffe Trail, Ostrich Trail, & Zebra Trail.
See the Resort Map for exact locations.

Best Room Locations

Room/location requests must be made at time of reservation and are not guaranteed.

Rooms at the far ends of the 'horseshoe' can be a long walk. If this might be a problem, request a room nearer to the lobby area. Be aware that rooms nearer to the lobby area can get a little noisy from passing foot traffic.

Not all animals are on each savannah-
Arusha Savannah - Giraffe, Pelicans, Zebra, Geese, Ankole cattle, Wildebeast, Eland, Gemsbok.
Sunset Savannah - Bongo, Male Giraffe, Ostrich, Impala, Thompsons Gazelles, Ankole Cattle, Waterbuck, Stork, African Crown Cranes, Blue Cranes.
Uzima Savannah - Bongo, Giraffe, Impala, Thompsons Gazelles, Kudu, Blesbok.

Best rooms are on the Zebra Trail, overlooking the Arusha Savannah.

Rooms on the Zebra Trail and Giraffe Trail overlooking the Uzima Savannah are mostly water view rooms, and overlook the swimming pool.

Kudu Trail rooms either overlook the Arusha Savannah or Sunset Savannah.

Giraffe Trail rooms are handy for the bus stops, pool and dining.

If you have a first floor Water view room on the Giraffe trail, you will have a small patio which can be handy for using the pool. Although you need to be careful of leaving your room patio doors unlocked and unattended if you are using the pool.

Water view rooms may get a little noisy from people using the pool, or passing foot traffic. Rooms on the higher floors may be a little quieter.

Some rooms on the Ostrich and Giraffe Trails are standard rooms, overlooking the front of the resort and parking lot.

If your budget can't stretch to a savannah view room, don't worry, there are plenty of overlook points throughout the resort (inside and out) where you can view the animals on the savannah.
