PHOTO TOUR OF A STANDARD ROOM AT DISNEY’S ANIMAL KINGDOM LODGE

Jambo House from yourfirstvisit.net

Standard rooms at the Animal Kingdom Lodge most commonly come with two queens, but rooms with one king, or one queen and a bunk bed, are available as well.

Floor Plan Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge Standard Room from yourfirstvisit.net

The images that follow were mostly taken during a visit to a two-queen room at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge in April 2016 after a light refurb but there’s also one lousy shot of a pre-refurb bunk bed room from January 2014 as well.

Entry Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge from yourfirstvisit.net

The entry is similar to that of many deluxe rooms.

Closet Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge from yourfirstvisit.net (2)

On one side you’ll find the door to a connecting room (if present) and a large closet.

Here’s the other half of the closet.

Sinks Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge from yourfirstvisit.net

On the other side of the entry is the bath, with two sinks…

…and the fun shower curtain.

Between the beds is a small table with storage.

Bunk bed rooms replace the queen nearer the bath with a large bunk bed.

TV Side Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge from yourfirstvisit.net

Beds are all that fit on this side of these small rooms. Here’s the other side of the room.

Fridge and Coffee Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge from yourfirstvisit.net

The mini-fridge and coffeemaker are near the bath.

Mini Fridge Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge from yourfirstvisit.net

The fridge, open, with scaling objects.

TV Dresser Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge from yourfirstvisit.net

The dresser and TV take up the center of this side. These room are overdue for a refurb that will separate the TV from the dresser, and add a much larger TV on the wall and power points to the dresser.

Dresser Storage Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge from yourfirstvisit.net

The two large drawers are enough for the four these rooms sleep, if they also use the large closet at the entry.

Table and Chairs Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge from yourfirstvisit.net

Table and chairs fill out the furnishings on this side of the room.

Balcony Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge from yourfirstvisit.net

Outside is the full-width balcony. Get a savanna-view room and you will delight in the animals you will see from your balcony!

Spotting Guide Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge from yourfirstvisit.net

The table has this spotting guide.

Is the Arusha more expensive than a regular Savannah view? Where would you recommend to stay for a standard/regular Savannah view?

😉

Sara, yes Arusha is more expensive. Of the non-Arusha views, I like Uzima Savanna, as it’s closer to the pool and restaurants than many rooms on Sunset Savanna. Picking “near lobby” from the on-line check in form will achieve this also…

Perfect! 🙂

Hi I’m staying at the akl lodge soon in savannah view room. We have booked two rooms and ideally would like a queen bed room and a bunk bed room. We don’t want to be miles from reception/amenities but would love s great view. Have requested that rooms are close to each other but would also love adjoining. How would we make the best online check in choices

5 Dave { 03.19.17 at 10:05 am }

Ger, did you book a bunk bed room? They are a separate booking category at AKL. If so, just call to make your request; if not, call to revise your booking, and make your request then. 407-939-7675
