    Hi, we are staying at AKL in May. Other than asking for a room with a view, can you recommend a building/room that is close to main lobby and pool? I have a child with asthma and after walking parks all day its always nice to have a room that is convenient

    Hello, Vicki,

    Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge is such a beautiful resort.  We always make sure to visit it when we come to Walt Disney World as it is such a treat to explore and has fabulous dining options to enjoy.  Our favorite area to stay, which is close to the main lobby and pool, is the Zebra Trail Guest rooms. I'm not sure what type of room you booked, but you'll have both savanna, pool and standard view rooms in this area. The following rooms would put you closest to the lobby:

    • 2407-2421
    • 3407-3422
    • 4407-4422
    • 5408-5421
    You might like visiting the independent website www.aklresort.com prior to your visit to explore the resort further.  If you have any additional questions, please let us know.  We are happy to help!

    Wishing you a magical trip!  -Kara
