-> Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge
We absolutely loved staying at AKL. The resort certainly has the wow factor as you walk into the gorgeous lobby full of African artwork and crafts. The detail in the themeing of the resort is amazing. We found the Cast Members at the Lodge very friendly and helpful. Cultural representatives are happy to spend time sharing their knowledge informally and during resort tours. There is loads to do with a full programme of activities for all ages and a lovely pool area. Of course the animals are the real stars here and there are plenty of places to view them, even at night with the aid of night vision binoculars. Stories around the fire pit are a great way to end the day.
AKL has a good selection of restaurants, Boma being a particular favourite of ours. The only negative thing we could find to say about the resort is that the rooms can be quite dark due to the style of furnishings but the detail in the themeing is amazing and more than makes up for this. Some guests might find it quite remote in location but for us that is a plus, you can really feel like you have escaped the theme park crowds and relax at AKL so it makes an ideal location for a more chilled out holiday.

-> Hard Rock Cafe
We have enjoyed a few nice meals at Hard Rock Cafe. The ambience is great for rock fans although it can be a little noisy when busy, definitely not the place for a romantic evening, but ideal for a casual meal with friends and family. At busy times there can be quite a wait for a table so it's a good idea to book ahead. The service has always been spot on and well paced for us. The extensive menu has all the classic American favourites. Steaks, burgers and salads are our usual choices and do not disappoint with large portions well presented. The New York Strip is a particular favourite. We love to browse in the shop after we've eaten.
