This is my 4th time at Kidani Village. I spent a week here and was very happy. I love the peaceful feeling of this resort. It can be a little noisy at times when the kids get excited and either yell on the balconies or in the hallways. This hotel seems more mellow than the other Disney resorts. It has... More

We have stayed at AK Jambo before but this was our first time staying at AK Kidani. We recently purchased DVC at AK and we are so happy that we did. The rooms are tastefully decorated with hints of Disney woven into the decor without being over the top like some resorts. We stayed in a 1 bedroom villa which... More

I don't even know where to start. We stayed at AKL for 5 nights and wish we could just move in! The entire place is amazing. The room was clean, and comfortable. Staff was amazing. The pool is wonderful with a large spa and two water slides, a splash pad, and had zero entry. I wish we had known how... More

My husband & I checked in on 3/4/15 to the Animal Kingdom Kidini. Our room was ready which was great. At 11:15 AM my husband called Maintenance about a light out in our bathroom. The bathrooms are fairly dark to begin with so having a light out was not good. At 6:30 PM we returned to our room & the... More

This was our first time staying at a Disney Resort. The villa was so spacious and the view was incredible. We reserved a 2 bedroom/3bath one. The decor was beautiful and the room was exceptionally clean. Check in was a breeze and there was no waiting. We did bring our own vehicle which made it easy getting to our room.... More

We recently stayed in a 1 bedroom villa at Kidani Village. (4 adults, 2 children). We were hotel (cash) guests, not DVC guests. We've stayed at several Disney properties (inc: Contemporary, Riverside,& Wilderness Lodge) so we are familiar with the whole Disney setup- buses, dining plan, magic bands, etc. We had always been torn on the idea of AKL.

This was the first Disney resort I've ever stayed at. We stayed here again recently and we had another amazing visit! Before I get into the positives of this amazing, exotic resort, I will get some minor negative points out of the way first. During our second visit, our villa was a lot further from the lobby than we were... More

We had a two bedroom villa and it was very nice. The decor was lovely. There is something about waking up and going to your patio to watch the animals. That was my favorite part. It was very peaceful. I did not get to see the pool but I did go to the arcade. That was very fun. The bus... More
