Details

Welcome to Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge, a magical safari resort that will have you wondering whether you’re in Florida or Kenya.

Located in Orlando, Florida, the hotel has a rating of 4.5/5 on TripAdvisor and is a 2021 Travellers' Choice Award winner. Plus, TUI has rated this hotel a 5-star hotel, which means you know you will be getting your moneys worth.

The hotel was inspired by the traditional African kraal, and is located in Disney's Animal Kingdom Resort Area on a 43-acre savannah that is home to over 200 birds and animals like gazelles, giraffes, and zebras. You can admire the animals from your balcony or various viewing platforms around the hotel.

It's important to note that the animals are free to wander, so you'll never know which animals you might see and when. As well as the giraffes and zebras, there are African flamingos, white-bearded wildebeest and impala.

The hotel features two swimming pools that are modelled after waterholes that you'd find on the African plains. Except here they come with water slides and poolside bars!

Relax on one of the sun loungers next to the pool and feel like you're at your own tropical oasis. Complete the feeling with a cocktail in hand.

There's something for everyone here, and kids will have fun at the hotel's splash play area and kids’ club.

When the sun sets, you can make friends around an old-fashioned campfire. Afterwards, we suggest going for dinner or a drink. On-site you have a few different restaurants catering to couples and families alike.

Dining options include a place with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the savannah, and various restaurants that mix African and American flavours.

For drinks, be sure to visit the Victoria Falls Lounge, which is set over a waterfall like its namesake, or the Cape Town Lounge and Wine Bar.

Try elk loin at Jiko – The Cooking Place, the resort’s signature fine-dining restaurant or go for an African-inspired lamb stew, curried seafood broth and Durban-style roast chicken at In The Mara. There's plenty of kid-friendly food for the young, picky eaters.

You'll have a variety of rooms to choose from at the hotel. All the rooms are decorated with African-style and sleep 1-4 people comfortably.

Select a room with a savannah view if you'd like to be able to see the wildlife roaming around from your room! They come with two queen-size beds, free Wi-Fi, air-conditioning, a coffee maker, safe, iron and board, a mini-fridge and a hairdryer.

Guests of the hotel will benefit from a free shuttle bus that will take you to and from all Disney theme parks, Disney water parks and Disney Springs.

Of course, when you'e not at one of the Disney parks, there is plenty to occupy yourselves at the hotel. Besides spotting and watching the wildlife or swimming at the pool, the hotel also features a games arcade and a playground.

We recommend visiting this hotel with a package from TUI, which includes direct flights, luggage and transfers. We've found one-week packages for 2 adults and 1 child leaving this May, starting at £1104 per person. If you want to stay longer, we suggest going for at least 14 nights to get 2 nights free! Plus, you can use code 'SALE' to get up to £300 off your total booking.

Booking a package holiday with TUI will allow you to breathe easy during these uncertain travel times, as they come with ATOL protection, flexible changes, and package refund guarantee.
