I spent the last week in Disney World with 24 other bloggers celebrating everything Zootopia! The new film is set to release in theatres on March 4th. What better place to rest our heads than… Animal Kingdom Lodge? Got us right in the mood for a roaring good time. (See what I did there?)
As soon as you hop off (I’m going to do this throughout the entire post – so just get used to it) the Magical Express from the airport and walk onto the property, you are whisked away to another location. Disney left no African stone unturned! Every detail told a story and it was one I couldn’t stop reading.
Even your walk to your room feels like an adventure!
Traveler’s Tip: When booking your room, be sure to ask for a “Savannah view”. I asked at check in and they were able to offer me a “partial view” which was super amazing because I woke up every morning to the giraffes eating! I wasn’t dead center, but I could still enjoy the moment.
The room itself feels like you are on safari. I love the feel of the mosquito nets above the beds without the fear of actually being bit by mosquitoes. I always tell people that I like the “Disney version” of things. This is the PERFECT example. It’s like I was in Africa without all the traveling and required shots.
Kids and adults alike will enjoy exploring the rest of the space – every inch of your hotel room keeps with the Animal Kingdom theme. From the wallpaper in the bathroom to the pottery hangings in the bedroom.
And don’t forget the PERKS! Because you are staying on a Disney property, you will get to enjoy amenities like:
