    I am staying at the Animal Kingdom Lodge this November, and I am so excited about enjoying a spa experience! Should I stay in house and go to the Zahanati Massage and Fitness Center, or am I better off at the Grand Floridian or Saratoga Springs?


    The Spa and Fitness Center at the Animal Kingdom is beautiful and has practically the same offerings as the Grand Floridian Spa.  If you are staying the Animal Kingdom it is going to be much more relaxing to go to their spa.  After your treatments you can take a short nature walk or relax by the pool. 

    If you really want to leave your home resort for a treatment, I would recommend spending a half of a day at the Grand Floridian.  As a customer of their spa you are allowed to enjoy their great pool before or after your treatment.   They also have a beach area that you can lounge at and many great restaurants.

    I would recommend sticking to either the Animal Kingdom or the Grand Floridian.  I have stayed at Saratoga Springs and it doesn't compare to the others.

    Enjoy your trip
