    Hello! Staying at Animal Kingdom resort. Is my friend (local) and 2 children allowed to visit with me for a few hours in resort property.

    Hi Angelina!
    Welcome to planDisney.

    Relaxing with friends is one of my favourite things to do at Walt Disney World, whether it's enjoying park fun together, at the water parks, or just spending time at the Disney Resort hotels in the most lovely of surroundings.

    Yes, your friends can stop by and visit you at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge, which is a wonderful Resort hotel to explore.  There is so much to see, starting with the impressive lobby, and I highly recommend the Resort gift shop for some very unique souvenirs.  Ask for a 'Wildlife Field Guide' from the Front Desk, and see if you can spot any of the 30 species out on the Savannah.  You'll also find a copy of the 'Wildlife Field Guide' in your hotel room if you want to get a head-start on this challenge!

    I recently shared a breakfast reservation with my friends at Boma - Flavors of Africa, and I am looking forward to enjoying another delicious breakfast buffet there again.  The breakfast service continues until 11.30 am so you could start your visit with a meal together (reservations are required and highly recommended, and can be made up to 60 days in advance).  If you fancy something more casual, the Quick-Service restaurant The Mara offers a wide choice of food to be enjoyed inside or if you prefer, take it outside to sit in the sunshine at the tables with a fabulous view overlooking the pool.  

    It must be noted that only guests who are staying at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge are permitted to use the pools there.   

    Enjoy your visit with your friends, and please come back and visit us if you have any further questions.  We will be happy to help you plan your magical vacation to Walt Disney World!
