Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge
|Destination:||United States Of America|
Thanks to some very special residents,Disneys Animal KingdomLodge will have you wondering whether youre in Florida or Kenya.
You can wake up to a scene straight out ofThe Lion King when you stay here. The hotel’s built around a 43-acre savannah, so you can sit on your balcony and watch gazelles, giraffes, and zebras grazing, safari-style. The African theme doesnt stop with the animals. Walk into the three-storey lobby and youre met with dark-wood floors, carved furniture and tribal art. Its more of the same in the bedrooms, too. Many rooms overlook the beautiful savannas, from which you can spot grazing zebra, giraffes and gazelles roaming free in natural environments. The hotel offers a wide range of activities honouring these animals, aimed at every age range. Go on a cultural safari, see animals play at dusk, with the benefit of night vision, and watch handlers feed pelicans and flamingos.
Youve got two watering hole-esque swimming pools, each with a slide and a neighbouring bar. Theres a big splash play area for children, and a hotel-run kids club. Dining options include a place with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the savannah, and eateries with menus that mix African and American flavours. A couple of cocktail bars finish the bill. When the sun sets, you can make friends around an old-fashioned campfire. For drinks, theres theVictoria FallsLounge*, which is set over a waterfall like its namesake, or theCape TownLounge and Wine Bar*.
The Disney Parks are easy to get to just hop on one of the shuttle buses. Back at the hotel, theres a games arcade* and a playground, plus have-a-go drumming and singing sessions in the lobby. Pick up one of the hotel’s wildlife-spotting guides, and you can start ticking off different species in the surrounding savannah. As well as the giraffes and zebras, there are African flamingos, white-bearded wildebeest and impala.
