Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge is a "deluxe" classed hotel resort in the Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida and opened on April 16, 2001.

The resort is located very close to Disney's Animal Kingdom and has an African theme that blends in seamlessly to the large preserve it is built on. The hotel is unique in that it affords guests the opportunity to watch wildlife graze outside their rooms within proximity, conveying the feeling of being in an actual African savannah.

This hotel was designed by architect Peter Dominick, who also designed Disney's Wilderness Lodge and Disney's Grand Californian Hotel. All three properties are somewhat similar.
