My Husband and I decided to spend a week at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge this past June to celebrate the newest adventure in my career of becoming a Disney Vacation Planner with ClickTheMouse!
We have always wanted to stay there and I knew this would be the perfect opportunity. Now I can share my experiences with future guests of the resort....I know, it's a tough job, but somebody's gotta do it!
We cannot express enough how pleasantly surprised we were with every aspect of our stay from check-in to check-out. It goes without saying that it was quite simply amazing to watch and observe the Animals any time you want. It became a morning ritual to have our coffee while watching them roam so serenely in the vast Savannah. I must admit we fell in love with a 3 month old Giraffe…he was so adorable!
We began our vacation with the Wanyama Safari, a special tour offered only to Animal Kingdom Lodge Guests. This was one of the best experiences we have ever had. It was a combination of Safari and Dining Experience. As animal lovers and foodies, we were in heaven!
It started off with a meet and greet where we sampled African snacks and beverages. When we were done with our mouth watering flavours, our Disney Tour Guide gathered us all up for our 90 minute Safari. She was extremely informative and knew all of the animals by name. Her passion and love for the animals was evident.
Our evening ended at Jiko with a Chef prepared menu of some of the most delicious food we have ever tasted. Each course had a drink pairing accompanied by a brief explanation from the Chef. My husband and I highly recommend this tour as a 'must-do' if you are ever a guest at the Animal Kingdom Lodge!
The remainder of the week was spent enjoying some fine dining, park time and exploring all that Animal Kingdom Lodge has to offer. This Resort is absolutely beautiful! With the paths that are lined with beautiful foliage, you feel like you're in an oasis of beauty.
I would be more than happy to discuss the Animal Kingdom Lodge in Walt Disney World with you if you are interested in staying at this amazing resort!
