    Hello, is there a date when the Animal Kingdom Lodge/Resort will be opening ?

    Hi Miranda! It sounds like you are a fan of the amazingly beautiful Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge! What's not to love!? From African-inspired artwork, to the meandering wildlife who call the resort their home, this is just a perfect Walt Disney World Resort Hotel! I was able to visit this resort for my first time early last March! I loved the many quiet places that can be found around the pools! The resident flamingos were also fun to watch! Of course, having a Guest room with a view of the giraffes was simply awesome!

    At the present time, only Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas at Kidani Village are available for booking. The Walt Disney World Resort is continuously assessing for the right time to reopen additional Disney Resort Hotels. Announcements regarding resort re-openings will be found on the Walt Disney World Resort website or the Disney Parks Blog! I check both of these sites regularly for the most up-to-date information!

    Miranda, there are several Disney Resort Hotels that are currently open, while others are scheduled to reopen soon! While the theming is different, there are some similarities between Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge and Disney's Wilderness Lodge. Both resorts celebrate the beauty of nature and the environment! You might also find some similarities with Disney's Polynesian Village Resort which is also scheduled to reopen this summer! Of course, you can still visit Disney's Animal Kingdom for a wild time on attractions or for visiting wildlife! Kilimanjaro Safaris remains one of my favorite places to visit in all of the Walt Disney World Resort!
