The best feature of this deluxe resort just might be the watering hole (or in this case, the 11,000 square foot swimming pool). With zero depth entry points, children’s wading pools, and whirlpool spas, this pool has something for the entire family. There is also the Samawati Springs Pool complete with waterslide, whirlpool spas, and Uzima water playground for kids! Both pools are just a short walk from the resort, down gorgeous paths lined with Floridian palms.

Work up your appetite at the pool then enjoy one of the many options for dining, including quick service, full service, wine tasting, lounges, pool bars, and more! Enjoy African-inspired specialties or American classics at any restaurant or delivered to your room. No matter what you’re craving, there are countless options at the Animal Kingdom Lodge for you.

Guests’ favorite aspect of this lodging option is definitely the view of the savanna and the opportunities to see the wildlife of your safari dreams. Watch giraffes, zebras, gazelles, flamingos and more – right from your window!
