    Is Animal Kingdom Lodge's Club level worth the extra cost? & i hear buses from AKL take forever, is that true?

    Hello, Darla!

    Welcome to planDisney, where we love helping Guests like you make their Disney vacation dreams come true. We hope that by providing answers to your Disney vacation questions, you can experience the most magical vacation possible. It would be my pleasure to offer you some guidance about a club-level stay at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge.

    I love staying at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge! The African theming is beautiful throughout the resort, and nothing beats the breathtaking views of the animals roaming the savannas. If you decide to stay at this resort, I highly recommend a savanna view room so you can enjoy these incredible views from your room. Boma - Flavors of Africa and Sanaa offer delicious dining opportunities, giving you another reason to love Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge. The bus rides to and from Disney’s Animal Kingdom are quicker than the other parks because of the location. While the bus rides to Disney’s Hollywood Studios, EPCOT, and Magic Kingdom Park are a bit longer because Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge is farther, it is not so far that it would keep me from staying at this wonderful resort.

    A club-level stay at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge sprinkles even more pixie dust on an already magical vacation! You will enjoy the Kilimanjaro Lounge, exclusive to club-level Guests, serving daily refreshments. Another great perk to a club-level stay is access to the personalized planning expertise of Disney Signature Services. With the addition of complimentary health club access and personalized Front Desk and Guest Services, I would say that the club-level benefits make it worth the extra cost.

    I hope this information helps you book an unforgettable stay in The Most Magical Place on Earth! Here at planDisney, we are always eager to help answer your Disney vacation questions, so please stop back by any time.
