    Can we get connecting rooms at animal kingdom resort?


    Thanks for asking your question to planDisney!

    While you can request connecting rooms at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge, Disney cannot guarantee them. Being such a family-oriented destination, they do get this request quite frequently. What you will want to do first is make your reservations.

    Your next step is to fill out a request via the website Help Center, using your reservation number to showcase the rooms you are hoping to join. The sooner you do this, the better. But your best bet is to call in and speak with a Cast Member who can note the request in your reservation. That Disney Resort Hotel Reservations number is (407) 934-7639. While they cannot guarantee that they can fulfill your request, they will do their best to accommodate it. Again, the sooner you put this request in, the more likely it will be to get honored. 
    All I can say is that the requests I have put in with these cast members have always been honored, and they have been so delightful, not only in our conversation about my family needs but in offering suggestions of how best to get our overall plans in order. They are simply, magical!

    You are going to be there in January when Orlando temperatures can range from a high of 72 degrees to a low of 51 degrees (22 to 10.5 Celsius). Did you know that the Disney Resort Hotels heat their resort pools year-round to around 82 degrees (about 28 degrees Celsius)? While they certainly do not reach hot tub temperatures, the added warmth usually is enough to take the chill out of the water, even on a cold day.

    Please feel free to write me back directly if you have any follow-up questions.

    Have a Magical Vacation!
