ARCHITECT: 4240 ARCHITECTS, PETER DOMINICK ( )

The Animal Kingdom Lodge is worth a visit to see the architecture and taste the food even if, like us, you don't stay there.
We enjoy the large buffet, "Bama - Taste of Africa" with a good selection of exotic and standard foods.
Don't forget to visit the "backyard," out through the back of the lobby, where you can see the animals.
There is also a nice pool area.

Even though you arrive from the front, it is situated such that there is not a lot to see of the structure.
The back side is much more impressive.

Though we have seen various wild animals in this area, we have never seen elephants or other large and more tempormental beasts.

Even though we did not stay at the lodge, there was no problem participating in this roast.
