A stay at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge Resort is a pure adventure as we found out on our most recent vacation. The sprawling hotel is full of amenities and jaw-dropping vistas of the resort’s own savanna. Waking up from a room here, is like waking up in the middle of Africa. You can find a giraffe outside your patio one morning and a herd of zebras on the next.
Animal Kingdom Lodge has several different spots to satiate those elephant-sized hunger pangs you work up after walking in the parks all day. There are the three sit-down restaurants – Jiko, Boma and Sanaa – plus the quick service eatery, The Mara.
So, today I wanted to take a look behind how to make a dining reservation at the most magical place on Earth…
At 180 days, you can begin to make dining reservations for your meals at Disney World. The “advanced dining reservation” process can be a bit complicated since you need to count backwards 180 days from when you check in. That marks the day you can make your ADRs. For us, our 180 mark was June 4.
