Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge

Resort in Animal Kingdom

With an abutting 33-acre savannah parading a who's who of Noah's Ark past hotel windows and balconies, park rangers standing ready to answer questions about the wildlife, and African-inspired food being served at the recommended restaurants, this resort offers particularly fun and quirky theming.

Ask about storytelling and singing around the fire. If you want to see giraffes and ostriches out your room window, you'll have to reserve the more expensive savannah-view rooms, but anyone can enjoy the animals from the observation decks. Even if you're not staying here, swing by for a drink after an afternoon at Animal Kingdom.
