Adjoining Disney’s Animal Kingdom, this is a great choice not only for Disney fans and themepark fiends but also for animal lovers – it's African themed, and you feel as if you’re on safari, with authentic-looking buildings made of natural materials throughout the vast grounds inhabited by more than 200 hoofed animals and birds.
Families staying here can learn about the animals they’re looking at and make a difference: opt for the four-course lunch in the Kidani Village and you'll be joined by an animal expert and get to meet endangered radiated tortoises, happy in the knowledge that what you pay includes a donation to the Disney Conservation Fund.
There are numerous on-site dining options, from sitting around campfires to formal dining, all with spectacular views. Enjoy a spot of wine-tasting, go on a jeep safari or simply hang out in the two vast pools or in the kid’s pool area with its water cannons and slides. If you want time to enjoy the spa, make use of the supervised children’s activity centre for 3-12 year olds, where younger guests enjoy African-inspired arts and crafts and Disney movies. Complimentary shuttles help you get around.
Rooms sleep 4-8 in a combination of standard and one- and two-bedroom suites, continuing the theme with heavy wooden furniture, mosquito nets and African art on the walls.
