We all understand that Disney do not have style parks in Africa. Well, at least not yet. Then why is it that individuals are talking about taking a vacation in Disney World Florida’s African style park lodge?
They are really talking about The Animal Kingdom Vacation Lodge which is in the southwest corner of Disney Orlando situated close to the Animal Kingdom amusement park. This excitingly themed and interesting lodge was officially declared opened in 2001. The Animal Kingdom Lodge is a combination of African tribal native architecture with the unique rugged design of East African National Park lodges. The Animal Kingdom Vacation Lodge was designed by Peter Dominick of Disney’s Wilderness Lodge fame.
Stunningly breathtaking view of the 33 acre terrain architecture with streaming streams and raised rock protrusions can be viewed from half of the spaces at the lodge. Hundreds of friendly animals and birds of mainly African origin wander easily at the location. Most of the practically 1,300 spaces have to do with 340 square feet big and embellished with hand-crafted African furniture and home furnishings. Almost all spaces include a balcony to view the astonishing surrounding.
The Animal Kingdom Lodge likewise offer great dining in a casual setting at the Jiko dining establishment. Jiko serves light, quick and easy dishes. Another dining establishment, the Boma is a family restaurant. This dining establishment is the African variation of the Whispering Canyon dining establishment found at the Fort Wilderness Lodge and Villas. Boma serves buffet food in African thatched roofing systems and many dishes are grills – African tribal style cooking.
The Animal Kingdom Lodge is linked to the rest of the Disney World by buses as its location is rather remote and out of the way.
There are two wings at the hotel, branching from the rear of the resort are the Kudu Trial and Zebra Trial forming a semi circle the central wildlife savanna. Each wing have 7 5 story structures with visitor rooms for visitor to remain.
The finest rooms are on 3rd and fourth floors. This is because these spaces are high enough to look the whole savanna and yet at the very same time simply low enough to appreciate the flora and fauna at almost ground eye level. The 2nd storey rooms are too low to view the savanna and rooms on the 5th floor are too high up for viewing the friendly animals close up.
There are 2 smaller sized wings called the Ostrich Trail and the Giraffe Trial. Nonetheless, spaces from these wings do not take pleasure in deem stunning as the ones at the Kudu and Zebra Trail.

So if you are considering taking a Disney vacation, why not think about staying at the Animal Kingdom hotel at Walt Disney World?
