The Animal Kingdom Lodge is one of Walt Disney World’s Deluxe resorts.  The South African wildlife theme of the resort is breathtaking, from the large mud fireplace to the thatched ceilings, real African artifacts and the African music playing softly in the background.  And let’s not forget about the animals roaming the grounds- zebras, giraffes, ostrich, flamingos, greater kudu, impalas, white-bearded wildebeest, Thomson’s gazelle and more!  There are over 200 animals and 30 different species of wildlife that roam four tropical savannas.

You will have an opportunity to see the exotic animals from special alcoves throughout the resort as well as from balconies of the Savanna View rooms!  That’s right… you can wake up in the morning, open your balcony door, and have a cup of coffee while watching giraffes or zebras wandering around right outside your room!  There are Safari Guides at the outside viewing areas to answer questions and share information about the animals.  A special activity offered at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge is night vision goggles to watch the animals roaming the savannas when it is dark out.  The animals truly are amazing and make a stay at this resort a once in a lifetime experience.

Columbia Harbour House at Disney

August 21, 2012

The Columbia Harbour House is a quick service dining spot located at Magic Kingdom Park in Liberty Square.  Conveniently found right around the corner from The Hall of Presidents and across the path from the entrance to The Haunted Mansion.

This nautically themed restaurant is reminiscent of New England in the late 18th century.  The clapboard exterior and fieldstone siding makes you feel as if you are in Colonial America.  The interior has oak flooring, old-fashioned sconces and wainscoting.  There are nautical themed paintings located in all of the different dining areas.

There are several dining areas inside with plenty of seating for everyone at the Columbia Harbour House.  One of our favorite spots is the upstairs area over the bridge between Liberty Square and Fantasyland.  It is quiet upstairs; most people don’t know there is an upstairs here. The view is wonderful.  It is a perfect spot to unwind while you enjoy a great meal.
