Animal Kingdom Lodge Theming

Here are some photos of Animal Kingdom Lodge that I didn't have room for in my
Walt Disney World trip reports. They demonstrate not only the beautiful architecture
of the building, but also the outstanding ways in which Disney's designers have
themed every aspect of the hotel--right down to the fire extinguisher cabinets!

Update 2/07 - I have updated this page with a few more photos from my January,
2007 stay at Animal Kingdom Lodge.
