    Are all the rooms on the 4th floor at AKL club level - easy to get to the CL lounge? What are the travel times from AKL to parks & Disney Springs? Room suggestions for CL for animal view/close to lounge?

    Welcome back, Nicholas! 

    It's wonderful to hear from you again and to hear that you are still considering a stay at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge. (I really do love the Resort.)

    The Club Level Lounge, or as it's called at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge, the Kilimanjaro Club, is located on the 6th floor of the Resort. It's beautiful and overlooks the stunning lobby. I believe that all of the club level rooms on the 4th floor offer Savannah views, but I would also request to be near the elevator so that travel between your room and the Kilimanjaro Club is easiest.  

    Travel from Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge to the Parks and to Disney Springs takes about 10-15 minutes if you are still planning on driving your own vehicle. Otherwise, in my experience, the bus times take about the same amount of time as the other Resort Hotels, depending on your destination. The Lodge is a little further away from the rest of the parks and resorts, but really it only adds a few minutes of extra drive time. The My Disney Experience App is also really convenient when looking up directions and approximate times when getting around Walt Disney World Resort. 

    Again, we are here if you have any other questions or concerns, Nicholas. Thank you for visiting us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel.
