Location and Theming

Animal Kingdom Lodge is home to Disney Vacation Club properties in the Kidani Village building. As well as traditional guest rooms filling the main lodge property, named for the towering atrium lobby Jambo House. Both buildings are surrounded by beautiful savanna and African animals roaming the savanna. Located near Animal Kingdom, this resort seems quiet and tucked away while still being within a quick bus ride of the parks. Bus access to all Walt Disney World Parks, Disney Water Parks, Disney Springs and ESPN Wide World of Sports is available at the Kidani Village bus stop and Jambo House bus stop.

Animal Kingdom Lodge is excellently themed. With savanna and animals surrounding the resort, elegant animal furniture accents and African flairs in décor the resort lobbies and resort rooms exude upscale elegance while staying true to the natural theme. Animal observation areas surrounding the savanna are available for guests hoping to get a closer look at the wart hogs, giraffes, zebras, antelope and other species that call the savanna home. Those wanting to enjoy the scenery from a higher vantage point can lounge in the rocking chairs on viewing balconies. After a long day in the parks or a great meal at Boma, kick back in a chair around the campfire on the outdoor viewing area or around the indoor fire ring in the lobby. Designed to convey the coziness and facilitate the conversation and storytelling that is such an important part of tribal societies, these fire rings offer the perfect place to decompress after a day and reconnect with your family.
