    We will be at the Animal kingdom Lodge on September 21st and 22nd before going on a cruise. Which activities can we enjoy at this hotel? We also have tickets for MNSSHP on the 22nd. Thanks!

    Bonjour Annick et bienvenue à planDisney!

    Thank you for taking the time to send a question our way. It is a pleasure to assist you as you plan a pixie-dusted Walt Disney World Resort vacation! Your Disney adventure is just around the corner, and I am happy to hear you will be staying at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge. My family absolutely loves this magnificent Disney Resorts Collection hotel that puts Guests right in the heart of Africa. 

    Besides taking advantage of Guest benefits like Early Theme Park Entry, Extended Evening Theme Park Hours, and complimentary Disney Transportation, you will be able to enjoy the beautiful pools, explore animal programs, spot animals in the hotel savannas, and savor delicious African specialties. I highly recommend planning resort days during your stay to explore all the recreational activities Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge has to offer.

    I like spending time at Uzima Springs Pool, and my oldest daughter loves the fun poolside activities. You can also enjoy Jambo House Campfire Activities and Movies Under the Stars, make reservations to paint your own masterpiece as you experience Wild About Painting, and the kids in your travel party can have fun at Hakuna Matata Playground.

    It is impossible to talk about Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge without mentioning the fantastic restaurants at the resort. Jiko – The Cooking Place is a signature dining restaurant where you will savor a delicious blend of traditional African, Indian, and Mediterranean cuisine. My family is crazy about Boma – Flavors of Africa, and my husband always talks about how excellent their breakfast is. If you dine at Sanaa, be sure to order their Indian-style bread service – you'll thank me later!

    planDisney tips: I recommend making reservations for Starlight Safari at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge to make your stay even more memorable. Upon arriving at the resort, pick up a recreation calendar to check out the daily arts, crafts, and entertainment activities.

    I hope this information is helpful, Annick. Next time you visit us, be sure to stop by planDisney in French for tips and advice in your beautiful language!

    Best magical wishes,
