Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge is one of the Deluxe Resorts on Walt Disney World Resort property. It is located near the Animal Kingdom theme park and is themed around a lodge on an African wildlife refuge.
Unique to Disney resorts, the Lodge features a Savannah with live animal roaming throughout it. There are a number of Savannah view rooms along with viewing galleries in the public areas that allow viewing of the animals. Night vision goggles are included in the rooms for viewing the nocturnal activities of the Savannah residents.
All of the rooms at the Animal Kingdom Lodge have a balcony and features either two queen beds, one queen bed and a bunk bed, or a king bed. The rooms are decorated to an African style, with carved wooden headboards and vivid colored bedspreads. Each room has a vanity with two sinks, a refrigerator, an in-room safe and high speed Internet (extra fee).
