    I am curious how to make the most of an animal adventure at Florida's park. We'd like to stay at a hotel where we will be able to see the most animals roaming around as possible. Looking for suggestions please. Thank you very much.

    Jambo, Kristen!

    Hands-down, you have perfectly described the experience guests have while staying at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge. The resort is incredibly beautiful with its celebration of African decor and art; I could easily stay here and never set foot in one of the theme parks as I enjoy visiting the resort that much! There are rooms with Savannah Views where you will be able to see up to 30 different animals and birds. It is pretty amazing to enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning while watching zebras and giraffes right outside your balcony.

    This resort has two buildings:  Jambo House and Kidani Village.  Of the two, we prefer the Zebra Trail Guests rooms at Jambo House.  We prefer the larger pool of this resort as well as the lobby that has more happening throughout the day. However, both buildings have amazing chances to see and enjoy the animals.

    Even if we aren't staying at this resort, we still always visit because our favorite restaurants are there.  Breakfast at Boma - Flavors of Africa is a must-do as well as lunch/dinner at Sanaa.  In fact, Sanaa is located on the ground floor so you can have some spectacular views of the animals.  You can also make reservations for the Dine with an Animal Specialist to have a chance to learn all kinds of facts and informations about the animals at the resorts and the theme park. It is a memorable experience!

    Wishing you a magical trip!  Please let us know if you have any further questions. -Kara
