Disney's Animal Kingdom® Resort Hotels

The Walt Disney World® Resort has a plethora of resort accommodations, ranging from deluxe resorts to value hotels, and some of the best are right outside Disney’s Animal Kingdom’s® doorsteps. Disney’s Animal Kingdom® Lodge, Disney’s Animal Kingdom® Villas, Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort, Disney’s Pop Century Resort and Disney’s All-Star Resorts are all Disney’s Animal Kingdom® Theme Park-affiliated hotels, and you can’t go wrong with a stay at any of them!

If you are going to stay somewhere on the Walt Disney World® Resort property, Disney’s Animal Kingdom® Lodge would be a great selection. Located adjacent to Disney’s Animal Kingdom® Theme Park, this lodge offers guests views from their rooms that no other resort can offer. Instead of looking out to a courtyard or pool, many of the 1,307 rooms at this resort offer views of giraffes, zebras, antelopes and other wild animals grazing through a 33-acre African savanna. Amenities at this hotel include a health club and spa, babysitting and child services, authentic African-inspired restaurants and recreational activities. Disney’s Animal Kingdom® Lodge also offers a special sunrise safari only available to lodge guests. The Kilimanjaro Sunrise Safari® provides an intimate, up-close look at the beauty of the animals before the park opens to the public.

Disney’s Animal Kingdom® Villas combine all of the amenities of Disney’s Animal Kingdom® Lodge with the comforts of home. The villas offer standard guest rooms, deluxe guest rooms and suites that have a separate kitchenette and sitting area. Most rooms at the villas come with additional amenities such as high-speed Internet access, irons and ironing boards, coffee makers, refrigerators and in-room safes.

One of Disney’s Moderate Resorts, Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort features almost 2,000 rooms that encircle a 15-acre lagoon. This hotel features a food court area, a lounge, salon and a health club, among others, in buildings that embrace the legendary cultures of Mexico and the American Southwest amidst Mayan architectural flourishes.

Disney’s Animal Kingdom®-area hotels also include Disney’s selection of value resorts, including Disney’s Pop Century Resort and Disney’s All-Star Resorts (Sports, Movies and Music). All four of these resorts are the most economical choices at the Walt Disney World® Resort, starting under one hundred dollars per night, and feature larger-than-life décor. For example, at Disney’s All-Star Sports Resort, your building may feature a three-story football or baseball glove, or at Disney’s Pop Century Resort, you can swim in a pool shaped like a bowling ball! These hotels offer standard rooms, but they still have the same great Walt Disney World® Resort privileges that you would get if you were staying at a moderate or deluxe hotel on property. 

Among those privileges are Extra Magic Hours (before the parks open and after they close), in which resort-only guests get to experience the best attractions with fewer crowds. If you’re flying into Orlando International Airport, you can also take advantage of Disney’s Magical Express® Transportation, which picks you up and takes you to your Walt Disney World® Resort free of charge. Transportation is also complimentary on-site at your resort hotel, as you can hop on a bus and be shuttled anywhere on property without ever having to spend a dime to park or worry about how to get where.
