    What is the difference in layout and size of a value room compared to a studio in the Animal kingdom Lodge

    Hey there Stacy and welcome to planDisney.

    Choosing a Disney Resorts Collection Hotel is exciting because you have many excellent theme options thanks to the Disney Imagineering team. But space does matter. Here is some general information on the Studio room sizes at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge.

    The smallest rooms at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge are studio rooms and their size and location within the Resort property are the main differences. Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge "Value" Studio is 316 sqft and Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge "Deluxe" Studio is 365 sqft. The Deluxe Studios are a little further from the lobby along the Kudu and Zebra trails while the Value Studios are along the Giraffe and Ostrich trails. You cannot go wrong with either as they have the same size beds and amenities with one having a little less floor space.

    planDisney Pro Tip: Be sure to reserve one brunch at Boma - Flavors of Africa and one evening at Jiko - The Cooking Place. These are two of my favorite places to eat on the property. The Boma French Toast Bread Pudding with Pecan Praline Sauce is so delicious.

    Stacy, I know it is a tough decision. Personally, we tend to stay "Value" because we want to have more money to spend on food and souvenirs and we are only in the room to sleep. 

    I hope this information was helpful to you. Please feel free to write me back directly with any follow-up questions about your December 2024 trip to the "Most Magical Place on Earth."

    Enjoy making many Magical Memories.
