Animal Kingdom Lodge Jambo House room refurbishments are taking place from August 2018 through fall 2019. Guests may see or hear construction, but noise should not be heard from guest rooms between dusk and 9:00 a.m.

The Uzima Springs Pool and Uzima Springs Pool Bar were refurbished in fall 2018.

Beginning in February 2018, Animal Kingdom Lodge undertook a pilot program in which all guest payments are cashless at the front desk, restaurants, and retail shops. Accepted forms of payment include MagicBands, credit cards, debit cards, Disney Gift Cards, Disney Rewards cards, Apple Pay, Samsung Pay, or Google Pay.

The Children's Activity Center closed in August 2018.
