    We have a Savanna View room at Animal Kingdom - will there be a fridge and microwave in the room?

    Hello Nicole!

    Welcome to planDisney! Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge is probably the most unique resort at Walt Disney World. Where else can you enjoy your morning cup of coffee while you watch the zebra and giraffe right from your balcony? You’ll feel like you have escaped to a far-off land with the comforts of home when you stay at this one-of-a-kind resort hotel. Did you know this resort houses the largest collection of African art outside the continent of Africa? And with an amazing pool area, delightful dining, and beautifully themed rooms, this resort offers something for everyone!

    Nicole, what you’ll find in your room depends a little bit on which type of room you have booked, but not the view. If you are in a standard hotel room with a savanna view at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge, you will find a mini-fridge and a coffee maker, but not a microwave. Standard hotel rooms at Disney Resort Collection hotels don’t typically have a microwave. There is a microwave for public use however at The Mara, which is the quick-service dining location near the pool. Pro Tip: If you are at The Mara, try an order of their famous Zebra Domes. It’s a fan favorite dessert!

    If instead of a standard resort room at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge, you are in a villa at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas you will find additional amenities. It is a resort within a resort in that both standard rooms and villas are housed at Jambo House. Over at Kidani Village, all the rooms are villas. Deluxe Studios feature a kitchenette with a small refrigerator, coffee maker, toaster, microwave, and bar sink. The 1, 2, and 3 Bedroom Villas feature a full kitchen as well as a washer and dryer.

    I hope this helps to answer your question, Nicole. And I wish you a magical visit to the Walt Disney World Resort!
