    Samantha Brown did a nice video tour of this room during her Animal Kingdom Lodge program. Kevin, your pics reconfirm for me that I just GOTTA stay in this suite someday!

    That type of kitchen without a stove is often referred to as a "morning kitchen" in luxury homes and suites. Great pics! Thanks for sharing!

    Nice!

    This definitely beats the Grand Suite at the Grand Floridian (that suite is a joke and looks like a bunch of random furniture was thrown in from my grandma's house into a bunch of plain rooms to make it look like something.)

    The Royal Asante Suite actually has detail! Maybe not in all the rooms but in a lot of it. This is what a Presidential Suite at a Disney Resort should look like.

    WOWZERS! My home is about the size of the bathroom! So does this mean you got to stay there? Or is this a tour you got to take? Either way, I'm sure it was awesome! Thanks for sharing the details and great pics

    For $2,000, the kitchen is a disappointment. I'm not impressed with the living room furniture. Seems too 70's, and the couch has that overstuffed look.

    For $2,000 I'd rather be a lot closer to the other parks too, but still a pretty impressively themed room!

    Sorry, can't do it, for that much money I'd want to spend EVERY waking hour there, and there'd be no time to go to the theme parks.

    Nice suite! Way to pricey, but really nice.

    Maybe if I won the $50 million prize on the Lotto Max.

    Lovely suite and a wonderful photo exposition, but so far above my station I'd be uncomfortable. Thank you for the tour!

    The kitchen should be much better. If you bring your private chef, he would want a fully stocked kitchen to cook your favorite meal.

    I'm guessing that the type of person who would be able to afford this room isn't going to be stopping off at the grocery store and stocking up on cheap food that he can eat in the suite. And I'm sure the hotel's catering department is more than happy to put in a full meal whenever needed.

    The "type of person who would be able to afford this room" will be asking his chef to do that. Your point? The catering department might do it, but you're talking about the needs of particular rich people. I've seen reality shows where rich bring their own chefs to their homes and vacations to cook for them. I would think the kitchen of a $2,000 suite should be better equiped, otherwise it wouldn't matter much if they choose to leave it out and just expect the client to order room service.
