    Hello! I am looking for a list of room amenities for Animal Kingdom lodge. Could you tell me if the room has a hair dryer, shampoo, conditioner, etc.? Also, does the resort have a place to buy basic toiletries if I happen to forget something. Thanks!

    Jambo, Katelyn!  

    (That’s hello in Swahili!) Welcome to planDisney, and thanks for bringing your detailed question our way. I adore Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge and am thrilled you’re going to experience this uniquely themed and luxurious resort on your next Walt Disney World Resort vacation! Let’s look at what’s included in your resort room so that you know what to expect.

    This sprawling resort has two sections - Jambo House and Kidani Village. No matter where your room is located, you can expect to find the following amenities provided in your room:

    • Hand soap
    • Body wash
    • Shampoo
    • Conditioner
    • Hair Dryer (find it on the shelf under the bathroom sink)
    • Beverage chiller
    • Coffee Maker (likely a Cuisinart Single-Serve brewer unless you are in a Villas room type, then it’s a full coffee pot brewer) with all coffee supplies needed

    Should you forget anything essential, there is a shop located in each area of the resort. At Jambo House you’ll find Zawadi Marketplace just off the main lobby, a large gift shop that also features many snacks, toiletries, and over-the-counter medical needs. Kidani Village is home to Johari Treasures, another nice shop within their lobby that offers a subset of the same items. As a Guest of this resort, you may shop at either location, but you’re likely to find everything needed nearby.

    Be sure to take some time during your vacation to explore this stunning resort, Katelyn! There are several animal viewing locations on the savannas and there are often guides on site to answer questions or share insights about animal behavior. I like to wander and find a quiet place to relax near the fireplace or in a rocking chair overlooking the savanna. This resort’s authentic culture and beauty will broaden your horizons and bring a sense of peace during a busy vacation! 

    Did you know that Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge boasts the most on-site activities for kids of any Disney resort? Check out the information boards for daily activity schedules and try a few out (whether you have kids or are just a kid at heart). 

    I hope you can also make a dining reservation at one of the resort’s delicious restaurants. My family are not very adventurous eaters, but we can always find something we enjoy (and try new things in a safe space) at Sanaa or Boma for a memorable meal together.  

    Please let us know if you need any more information to put your mind at ease and know what to expect for this special stay. I hope you have an incredible adventure at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge next month!
