    Hey! After this crazy season of life we are looking to book a resort only vacay with the MNSSHP 1 evening. We plan on booking ASAP once disney allows them. Rumors are AKL won’t be open to the public. Is this true? Can’t think of a better place to stay

    Howdy Robin!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  Thank you so much for sharing your question with us!

    I am so excited about my next vacation at the Walt Disney World Resort, and I know you are too!  My family and I also love Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge!  My youngest son is looking forward to going to the Walt Disney World Resort just to enjoy Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge, just like you!  This hotel is a family favorite in my home!  There is nothing more relaxing than waking up and stepping out on your balcony to watch the giraffes and zebra enjoying their breakfast!  

    I have not heard that the Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge would not be open to the public upon the Walt Disney World Resort reopening in July.  I have friends that are hoping to stay at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas – Kidani Village as soon as reservations open.  As the parks get closer to that grand opening day, I am sure we will get more information on resort details.

    The reopening will be a joyous time at the Walt Disney World Resort!  I am ready to make “Dreams Come True,” and I know you are too!  We love Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge, but every hotel at the Walt Disney World Resort has a lot to offer!  The Cabins at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort offers guests an opportunity to relax and take life a little slower.  Another benefit to this resort is that it is a short boat ride away from the Magic Kingdom Park!  I know whichever resort you decide on, you will make many unforgettable memories!

    To stay informed of all the things coming in the weeks ahead, check out the Disney Parks Blog daily.  Also, keep an eye on the Walt Disney World website so you can get your resort as soon as it comes available!  If you have any more questions in the weeks and days leading up to your vacation, please come back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    We look forward to helping you with all your planning questions, Robin!

    See Ya Real Soon,
