|THE ANIMAL KINGDOM LODGE. BACK SIDE POOL|
I love Walt Disney World and when I was a cast member I got a few great deals on resorts, so I thought I would stay at the Animal Kingdom Lodge. The moment I walked into the front, I feel in love with the place. I loved the hand carved furniture and the beams around where so beautiful. I felt like I walked into a resort in Africa and I didn't want to leave! There is a pool out back with water slide and the cool part is that it's very close to the animals grazing in the field. I saw so many animals that are around the Animal Kingdom Lodge, I went to the Disney site and got the list of names of all of them: Ankole Cattle, Bontebok, Eland, Zebra, Greater Kudu, Impala, Okapi, Red River Hog, Nyala, Reticulated Giraffe, Roan Antelope, Sable Antelope, Thompson's Gazelle, Waterbuck, White-Bearded Wildebeest, Abyssinian Ground Hornbill, Blue Crane, East African Crowned Crane, Greater Flamingo, Marabou Stork, Ostrich, Pink-Backed Pelican, Spur Winged Geese, Guinea Fowl and Ruppel's Griffon Vulture! So, if you are a huge wild animal fan, this is the resort fro you to stay at, promise! You will not be disappointed at all!
Here is a picture of what I saw out my window one day when staying at the resort:
I made this picture extra large so you can see the giraffe following the truck outside our window. They had to cut down a tree and when they were hauling it away, the giraffe followed them trying to eat the leaves off tree. The truck had to keep stopping and giraffe would start pulling on the tree trying to eat the leaves. I guess he didn't want any leaves going to waste! You never know what you will see out your window or when you sit on your balcony.
At this resort, there are some great dining, if you want fast dining there is The Mara. There you can get soups, sandwiches, salads, pizza and burgers. Everything is under $14. Plus it's very close to pool.
Want to have a fun experience, eat at Boma! I loved eating there and would love to eat there again! It is a buffet-style restaurant and you can eat as much as you like. There is so much to pick from and everything was so delicious! This is cost around $25 to $35 per person but worth it!
The rooms have everything as well. I loved how large the bathroom was and so much room to move around. the bed was comfortable and loved being on the balcony, watching the animals. The room has Cable TV with Disney Programming, Safe, Coffee Maker, Refrigerator, Hairdryer, and Iron and Iron Board. If you get a suite, you can get more with your room.
