Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge

Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge was designed by architect Peter Dominick, who is also known for the Fort Wilderness Lodge and Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa. It opened on April 16, 2001.
Animal Kingdom Lodge has a massive mud fireplace, huge carved wood pillars, and giant showcase window facing the savanna. In the lobby are fascinating artifacts. It is beautiful! and as always the theming is fabulous!!
There is a semi-circular layout that ensures most rooms overlook the 30-acre savanna, allowing guests views of the birds, giraffes, and array of other African animals that call the savanna home.
