    Are beach towels available at resorts? We will be at Animal Kingdom.

    Hi there, Patrick!

    Thanks for swimming by planDisney with your question for us!

    I'm glad you're preparing for a splash-tastic time at The Most Magical Place on Earth. Staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel is my favorite part of the vacation, and I have a feeling you'll fall in love with Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge! This stunning property has so much to offer. On our recent trip there, my family opted to experience its magic rather than hitting the parks!

    I'm happy to tell you that most Disney Resorts Collection hotels provide complimentary towels at the pools, with the exception of Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort, for which you'll need to provide your own pool towels. You'll be able to find them neatly stacked in the Towel Issue Bins in the pool areas. Also, you'll be pleased to know that Disney Resort hotels offer Guests complimentary life jackets in adult sizes and child sizes should anyone in your party require them. 

    The pools at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge are incredibly themed to African-inspired architecture and a wildlife preserve. My Mouseketeers especially love the Uwanja Camp, a water playground with 3 distinct zones! 

    Whether you enjoy the authentic African art around the Resort hotel or animal-watching, there's much to see and do at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge! Guests can enjoy the outdoor savanna outlooks with decks to watch the wildlife. One of our favorite things to do is learn from the cultural representatives who help educate Guests about the beauty of African cultures. And I would be remiss not to tell you about the incredible and mouth-watering dining options! My friends and I recently dined at Boma - Flavors of Africa, and I'm still dreaming about some of the dishes. This buffet offers delectable delights from various African countries, but if you have any picky eaters as I do in your party, it also provides many familiar options! 

    I hope you have the most magical time relaxing as you soak in some Vitamin D! 

    Fishing you an enchanting vacation, Patrick!
