Overview

An entirely unique Disney experience for guests to enjoy just west of Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park. It’s the thrill of staying at a wildlife reserve with animals grazing just beyond their balcony. Rejuvenate both body and spirit in luxurious surroundings while sharing the grandeur of the African wilderness. The beauty of the savanna, the rhythm of tribal drums, exquisite cuisine in lush settings and the lure of authentic African treasures all come together to celebrate the beauty and wonder of this vast and untamed continent.

Disney Cares

christinesT6278HJ (Connecticut) on Sep 20, 2021

My mother had a medical emergency during our visit to Disney (we were at Animal Kingdom park at the time). The park staff was excellent about getting my mother seen by paramedics quickly and helped facilitate transfer via ambulance to a local hospital where she was admitted. Disney guest services contacted me later in the day to provide additional assistance which helped make a stressful situation a little easier. The Lodge manager was very compassionate and helped facilitate a later check-out time so my mother could return to shower and change before we took a flight home. Nobody wants to think of anything bad happening while on vacation, but things can go wrong. I am beyond pleased with Disney's response (at the park and at the Lodge) and will be a forever Disney customer after this experience. We were able to enjoy some time at the Lodge before the medical issue. The room was clean, modern and well supplied with everything we needed. Our Savannah view was fantastic, and we particularly enjoyed sitting on the balcony watching the animals. I am a vegan and my mother has food allergies, but we both had plenty of food options to select from. While at the Lodge, we dined at The Mara several times. Allergy-friendly waffles aren't available on the mobile order app, but we were able to request them in person. There were two plant-based options, plus a vegan dessert, on the lunch/dinner menu. The meals were interesting – not the standard veggie burger option many places offer for vegans. Bus transportation was easy, but crowded at park closing time. If you have COVID anxiety, you should probably take an Uber at peak times. They are able to pick up/drop off right at the Lodge entrance.

Check charges before you leave

Make sure you check your folio charges before you leave. Myself and another traveling party were charged for parking, even though we never even drove a car while in Orlando. Location is somewhat far, but the resort itself is nice.
