Want to find out how to get the most out of your time at the Animal Kingdom? Here’s some great tips.
Arrive early for safari. If you want to see the most animals, it’s generally accepted that heading to Kilimanjaro Safaris early in the morning is the best time to achieve this.
Get there when it opens. Disney’s Animal Kingdom closes earlier than other theme parks in Orlando, so you need to arrive early to maximize on your time there.
Bring a change of clothes If you’re planning to go on Kali River Rapids, there’s a good chance you’ll get really wet. A change of tee and shorts is a good idea!
Ride solo. If you’re okay with riding alone, you’ll find that the single rider lines are always a lot shorter.
Look out for the secret path! We’ll give you a clue, it’s on the way to Harambe Village, after the Tree of Life. Have fun seeking it out…

Our stay was wonderful! The home provided everything that was listed. A chair was broken in the game room and we let them know right away and they came by, picked it up and had it fixed the same day. Def will stay here again!

Book it now!
I honestly don’t even know where to start with this property. From the moment I walked in I knew I would never want to leave. It felt like pure luxury. The home is beautifully decorated, well laid out and comfortable for all ages. The pool was very warm so there was no bracing yourself for the shock of cold water. The Kitchen was well stocked with everything you would need to make a nice meal. This home is an absolute must whether you are staying for a romantic getaway with just your significant other or for a family with kids (we brought our 5 kids and no one was bored. Our kids are 1, 3, 8,10, and 12). We definitely will be back! Thank you for such a beautiful home and a great experience!

This place fit our family gathering perfect! Everyone enjoyed it. Great location and easy access to everything Disney. We had a need for maintenance and they were very prompt, even going above and beyond to accommodate us. The property management was also very responsive to our questions and suggestions. We would stay again.

We were first impressed with the spaciousness and how clean the home was. It was nice to have fun activities like: ping pong, basketball and air hockey for entertainment. Most of all, the private pool was an awesome feature! Would highly recommend this home!

We couldn't have found a better place to stay with our adult kids and grands for a vacation exploring Central Florida! Easy to get to Disney World, Orlando International Airport, Cocoa Beach, air boat ride/gator watching! The house was perfect for keeping teens/pre-teens entertained while not exploring . . . game room, theater room, pool/hot tub. Spent a bunch of time at the resort pool/water park/clubhouse too! The house is exactly as pictured and we couldn't have been more delighted!!

The Top Notch
The perfect location for my family of six. We really enjoyed our stay here. Everything was super clean, from the carpet in the floors to the sheets and the towels. Lots to do and very close to all the amusement parks. The neighborhood waterslides were great. And it was incredibly nice just to come back to the house in our private pool and hang out and play. This is a must return spot for my family. You will not be disappointed!
