First Introduction To Disney World

Posted in Disney Blog  by admin on October 6th, 2008

Although very much taken with my favourite Disney Hotel, The Animal Kingdom Lodge, this was not always the case. In the early 70′s, when I was taken to the Disney Movie, the Jungle Book, an advertisement was shown for the recently opened Walt Disney World. I remember being very taken with the Magic Kingdom and the flying Dumbo ride, but what really caught my imagination was the Disney Contemporary Hotel. The thought of a monorail going through the hotel seemed out of this world, and I could think of nothing more exciting than being taken to Disney world and staying at this wonderful Disney hotel.
It wasn’t until many years later that I actually got the chance to stay in the hotel of my childhood dreams.  But when it came around to booking my holiday another hotel caught my imagination. The Animal Kingdom Lodge had only just recently opened at the time and the pictures in the brochure looked like something from an African Safari, another kind of holiday I had always dreamed about. So at the last minute I switched my choice of hotel, and since then, I have never had the desire to stay anywhere else. I have had the good fortune to travel all over the world to many different countries, and I have stayed in many hotels, but most pale in comparison to the Animal Kingdom lodge. And that is why I would recommend this hotel to anyone.
