Oh, Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge, how we love you.

Animal Kingdom Lodge

With your incredible theming, delightful restaurants, and of course — sweeping savanna animal views, you’re practically perfect. So, it’s no wonder that AllEars readers have rated it the number one hotel in all of Disney World. But, we think number two might surprise you.

Disney Vacation Planner

Did you know that AllEars features a comprehensive roundup of reviews from our readers? It’s true! You’ll find reviews on rides, restaurants, and of course — hotels. We were scrolling through our hotel reviews the other day when we noticed that the number two hotel behind Animal Kingdom Lodge was one we didn’t expect!

Savanna View

It makes sense that Animal Kingdom Lodge is ranked first with a 9.3 out of 10 — it’s beautifully decorated, immersive, and truly feels like a deluxe resort with its restaurants and animal views. But, we were expecting to see one of the monorail resorts — the Contemporary, Polynesian, or Grand Floridian hotels — in second place.

Shockingly enough, a monorail resort doesn’t make the list until #5 — the Polynesian is rated 8.3 out of 10 according to our readers. Folks love the layout of these rooms, the proximity to Magic Kingdom, and the overall tropical vibes of the Polynesian.

Plus, it’s home to some of our favorite restaurants — ‘Ohana, Captain Cook’s, Trader Sam’s, and Kona Cafe!

So, which Disney World hotel did take the silver medal in the Accommodation Olympics? It was Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, of course! Coming in with a 9.2 rating out of 10, 95% of the people who reviewed this hotel on our site recommend it.

And, although it’s not on the monorail loop — it’s still extremely close to Magic Kingdom! In fact, our readers love taking the leisurely boat from Wilderness Lodge to the Most Magical Place on Earth. In addition, this hotel is just as incredibly themed and immersive — which makes sense when you realize they were designed by the same architect!

Wilderness Lodge

Wilderness Lodge is home to Storybook Dining With Snow White at Artist Point, a character meal perfect for foodies. Whispering Canyon Cafe serves up delicious breakfast skillets and a ton of entertainment in the form of rowdy Cast Members, and Territory Lounge is one of our favorite underrated bars in all of Disney World.

We totally get why our readers find Wilderness Lodge worthy of recommendation. It is a Deluxe Resort, meaning it’s the highest price tier, but you can often find discounts and rent DVC points to make your stay a little cheaper. Consider booking a stay for your next Disney World trip!
