Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge is one of the most spectacular on-site hotels that you can stay at during your trip to the Disney parks. The African safari-themed lodge lies on the edge of the animal preserve and has a variety of amenities and activities for you to choose from during the length of your adventure at the happiest place on earth.

Upon stepping into the grand foyer, you will feel as though you have wandered onto a movie set in Sub-Saharan Africa, and, before you know it, the décor will have you reaching for your linen pants, explorer hat, and raider gear. From artworks all throughout the hotel left for your enjoyment and the capability of viewing animals of the preserve from several rooms and the lobby, the Lodge is a feast of visual engagement.

Activities at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge:


There are two pool areas at the Animal Kingdom Lodge. The Uzima Springs Pool has a water slide as well as a children’s wading pool, and the “spring of life” itself is designed to look like a natural lagoon. There are trees, ample sitting room, and a lounge where your whole party can grab snacks. The Samawati Springs Pool is a bit smaller, but the water slide is an immense 128-feet, and there is even a playground area for children. The latter, called the Uwanja Camp, has fun places for the kids to crawl through and play their hearts out during some of your downtime at Disney.

Additional Play Areas

The Animal Kingdom Lodge features a 24-hour outdoor gravel playground where the kids can let off some steam after the excitement of the parks. There is also an arcade where the entire family can take pleasure in the exhilaration of electronic game play.

Campfires and Movies

The Animal Kingdom Lodge hosts campfire events and movies as the sun sets and twilight falls. Campfires are fun activities in which guests gather to roast marshmallows and go over the amazing memories made that day. After the fire, the Animal Kingdom Lodge hosts a movie under the stars. The campfire starts at 5:00 p.m., while the movies begin their showings at 8:00 p.m. Both are a great way to top off your adventures for the day while you wait to hit the sack and dream of tomorrow.


The Animal Kingdom Lodge is well known for its many restaurants. You have choices that range from aperitifs and beverages to a full course meal on safari, and the world classroom service available at the hotel will allow you to have your breakfast in bed. The focus of the restaurants is both on African and American cuisine so that everyone can eat, drink, and be merry.
