    Are there still bunk bed rooms at AKL? I thought I heard something about them being removed.

    Hey there, Ashley. Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. 

    Every year my mother scoops my daughter up and jets off to Walt Disney World for the weekend. They call it their annual skip trip. This year, much to my daughter's delight, they stayed at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge. I can officially report, as of a few weeks ago, there are still bunk bed rooms at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge. I don't know what it is about bunk beds but they seem to make every child happy. She had a great time sleeping on the top bunk while staying there. She wants me to let you know that the beds are very comfortable. When booking your Walt Disney World vacation, if you are interested in the bunk bed rooms, you'll need to make sure to select rooms that actually state they are bunk bed rooms. Not every room comes standard with them. Bunk bed rooms can be savannah view, pool view or standard view. These style of rooms can accommodate up to 4 adults. I actually haven't heard any rumors about the bunk beds going away so I'd say if they interest you, go ahead and book away! 

    While you are staying at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge, I highly recommend you check out the Starlight Safari. My daughter did this on her last trip and had the best time. It's a totally different perspective on an African Safari. You'll be provided with night vision goggles as you drive across the savanna on the lookout for 20+ African species that call Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge their home. My daughter got to see giraffes, zebras, wildebeests, some exotic birds and even a cute little bunny. If you have your cell phone handy during the tour, hold the camera lens up to the night vision goggles for some really great pictures! 

    I hope this helps. If you have any other questions please feel free to come back and ask.

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
