    We are coming back to Disney February 2020! We have decided we are going to splurge for club level room at either Polynesian or Animal Kingdom Lodge. Our daughter will be 4 and a half at time of travel. Any tips on which club level is best? Thanks!

    Oh WOW, Mary!

    It sounds like you and your ‘Ohana have a fantastic vacation planned for next February. I think staying at a Walt Disney Resort Hotel is an excellent choice for any trip, but staying Club Level is the icing on the cake!

    Disney's Polynesian Village Resort is all about location, location, location! The Resort is on the Monorail, so it is a quick ride over to Magic Kingdom Park. Also, the Transportation and Ticket Center is conveniently located a short walk away, making it easy to access the Express Monorail and the Epcot Monorail. Being so close to Fantasyland will be a Dream Come True for your Princess! 

    Club Level rooms are located in the Hawaii Longhouse, right next to the main Lava Pool. Besides the fantastic resort amenities, you will have access to the King Kamehameha Lounge. The Lounge serves light food, drinks, and even alcohol in the evenings!

    The Kilimanjaro Lounge is on the sixth floor of Jambo House at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge. It is accessed only by your MagicBand and offers sweeping views of the hotel lobby out to the savanna. These views provide a birds-eye view of the magnificent giraffes, zebra, emu and more, which are the reason why this is my favorite Resort Hotel! Where else (in the US!) do you get live animals roaming right outside your hotel balcony?

    The lounge has some of the most delicious food of any of the Club Lounges on property and offers the same sort of light meals and beverages as the King Kamehameha Lounge. Concierge service is available at both, where you will have help planning a custom-tailored magical vacation!

    Mary, you can’t go wrong with either choice. I wish you much Pixie Dust with your decision!
