Animal Kingdom Lodge

Posted in Animal Kingdom Lodge  by admin on September 20th, 2008

The Animal Kingdom Lodge is perhaps the best hotel on the whole of the Walt Disney World complex. Although not a five star hotel, the as the Animal Kingdom Lodge more that makes up for the lack of 24 hour room service, with spectacular scenery and interior design that instantly whisks the hotel guest into a world of African charm. In fact the Animal Kingdom Lodge is known to be favoured by celebrity clientele for their family visits to Disney World.

The earthy decorative tones, and authentic African artefacts makes the Animal Kingdom Lodge feels incredibly warm and inviting. Staying at the Animal Kingdom Lodge give the convenience of staying on a Disney World Site without being surrounded by Disney themes.

The Animal Kingdom Lodge has a charm that appeals to both adults and children. The animals striding across the savannahs in the morning and evening enthral all ages groups and it is a welcome change from hustle and bustle of the Disney theme parks. The Animal Kingdome lodge is little part of Africa that Disney have got exactly right. Its is relaxing and inviting and transports the hotel guest to world that seems many thousands of miles away from Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck, and yet guests are only a few short minutes away by shuttle bus to all the major Disney theme parks.

The Animal Kingdom Lodge could stand along as super hotel outside of Disney and would still be worth a visit.

Beading and Making Jewllery at the Animal Kingdom Lodge

Posted in Animal Kingdom Lodge  by admin on August 31st, 2009

One of the best things about the Animal Kingdom Lodge is the way they create activities for children. One of my favourites is the beading activity. Making simple jewellery with beads  inside the beautiful hotel foyer, or outside in the sunshine by the pool, is a great way to entertain the children.


Children love playing and experimenting with colourful beads, and creating a unique piece of jewellery. It’s the perfect crafting activity to keep those little hands busy. And what is even better, is that it is a quiet activity which requires a little bit of concentration. And so when the little ones are creating their jewellery pieces, and selecting their beads, there is welcome break from the hyper activity that is associated with trips to the theme parks.


If when you have finished your jewellery projects and returned home you want to learn more about beading, then try for ideas and inspiration. They have a great tribal necklace project which would fit right in with the African style jewellery on sale at the Animal Kingdom lodge gift shop.  You can view it here

Animal Kingdom Lodge Pool

Posted in Animal Kingdom Lodge Pool  by admin on October 3rd, 2008

Animal Kingdom Lodge pool


The 360 pool at the Animal Kingdom lodge is themed like a little oasis in South Africa. Surrounded by palm trees the beautifully peaceful the animal Kingdom lodge pool has Zero entry on one side and so is most suitable for disabled guests.

 At most times of the day you will find three lifeguards on duty to assist any swimmer the 9,000-square-foot, themed feature pool. There are views of the savannah and nestled away in the shrubbery on the side of the main pool are two warm bubbling spas. There is also a small children’s play area and a children’s pool as you would expect, located close to the restrooms for ease of use. 

At the animal Kingdom lodge poolside, you will find a bar in keeping with the theme, complete with African style thatched roof The bar serves delicious smoothies both alcoholic and no- alcoholic- I recommend the one made with rum and fresh strawberries.

Towels are provided in the animal kingdom lodge at pool-side, so  there is no need to take towels from your room or pack extra large beach towels when vacationing here. Adjacent to the pool, again neatly tucked away out of view, is a massage and fitness centre.

When the little ones have had enough of the pool, try out the animal Kingdom Lodge crèche. Called simba’s club house, the crèche  provides excellent childcare, with all the facilities that you would expect. They will even provide meals so that parents can have a romantic evening alone. And for the older children, check out the small amusement arcade which provides all the usual coin operated video games.    

The poolside experience at the animal Kingdom lodge is a relaxing and very different to any other Disney hotel, with perhaps the exception of the Disney wilderness loge. It’s a great experience for both adults and children and is a welcome rest from the tiring theme parks.
