    Heading to Animal Kingdom Lodge with my husband and 7 year old in early December. It's a short stay, only 3 nights, what are the can't miss things we should look for and do at Animal Kingdom Lodge?

    As they say in some parts of Africa, Jambo Milissa! 
    Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge is one wildly exciting place to stay and I'm quite sure that you and your lovely family are going to spend an amazing 3 nights there in December enjoying the sights and sounds of the African savanna. 
    Here just for you is a list of my top not to be missed things at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge  -
    Secure an Advanced Dining Reservation during the daylight hours at Sanaa; this fabulous restaurant allows Guests to dine whilst viewing animals roaming the Sunset Savanna. 
    Be sure to check out the Campfires at Jambo House Campfire Activities; a sure-fire winner with all Mouseketeers! 
    You may want to discover a unique and interesting souvenir of your personal safari at Zawadi Marketplace
    And last, but by no means least... take a wander around the stunningly beautiful lobby area where in December you'll find festive Holiday decor including a majestic Christmas tree, also check out the interesting African artefacts on display and don't miss viewing the savanna animals from Arusha Rock which can be found at the very far end of the main lobby.  
    I'm sure whatever is finally decided upon you'll enjoy a magical December visit to Walt Disney World Resort making memories with your dear family which are sure to last an entire lifetime. 
    Have a great Disney day.
