I love staying at Disney Resorts when we plan our Disney vacations. They are all close to the parks and each one has unique options for your family depending on what you are looking to do or see.  As part of my #MonkeyKingdomEvent trip I wanted to tell you a little more about why I love Animal Kingdom Lodge.  We have stayed here quite a few times in the past and my family just loves it. I love being able to wake up in the morning, open the curtains and go out on the balcony to see the animals roaming as if it was my own backyard. Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge is Inspired by the traditional African kraal. It has 4 lush savannas that house over 200 hoofed animals and birds.

Not only can you see some amazing animals, but the lodge offers so many fun and educational programs as well. The lodge is like a destination itself.  When you walk into the lodge be sure and pick up a program guide that will have a complete list of activities during your stay such as nature talks, childrens activities and more. So what all does Animal Kingdom Lodge have to offer? Check this out:

The Pool –

Escape to an 11,000-square-foot pool with an exciting waterslide and gently sloping, zero-depth entry point similar to that of a natural watering hole. Surrounded by large canopy trees and Floridian palms, Uzima Pool includes a children’s wading pool and 2 whirlpool spas.

You can also cool off at Samawati Springs Pool, which offers a thrilling waterslide, 2 whirlpool spas and Uwanja Camp—an animal observation site-themed water playground with squirting Venus flytraps, a rope bridge, water cannons and more. Samawati Springs Pool is located just a short walk away at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas – Kidani Village.
