We joined DVC last year, and we were so excited to take our first trip as members. We were even more excited to stay at Kidani Village, and we definitely were not disappointed! The environment, animals on the savanna, spaciousness of the 2-bedroom villa, huge balcony and master bathroom, staff, and pool were top notch! The villa was clean, comfortable,... More

Our The overlooked the animal area where we woke up to African Savannah animals eating and walking through the area. The pool and kids' water play area is amazing! Would definitely stay there again! There is a restaurant onsite with great African cuisine. There is a family area where kids can play and make arts and crafts. The 2 bedroom... More

I am getting ready for another trip to Kidani (last one was in May of this year); and I stumbled upon these reviews. I was curious about the very few 1 star reviews of this resort. I have probably been to Kidani close to a dozen times (or more) over the last 6 years; and the poor reviews really surprised... More

My wife and I went here for a mini weekend honeymoon immediately after our wedding since we both had work obligations the following week. It was worth every penny. We were upgraded to a savannah-view room, with a balcony overlooking zebras, bison, and ostriches. The entire Animal Kingdom Lodge was easy to access so that we could walk to see... More

Stayed here during Easter week using a friend's vacation club member points. Stayed in a 2 bedroom villa overlooking one of the savannas. This resort is really cool. The room was amazing! It had 3 bathrooms, one even had a whirlpool tub. HUGE balcony overlooking the savanna. Pool is very nice too and has a fun slide. Extremely limited food... More

We stayed in room 7953 (5th floor) . Which was clear at the end and an extremely long long long long walk. The room was beautiful and a great size for a family of 7. With 2 bedrooms 3 bath. And the master bath had spa and beautiful Lion King decor. However the housekeeping and general cleanliness was only fair.... More

We recently stayed at Kidani village. Stayed on the 4th floor in a 3 bedroom grand villa. Can't say how awesome it was. AMAZING!!! Savannah views with animals outside like giraffes, zebra, etc. Kids loved it. Tons of walking involved anywhere on DW property, but that's not a bad thing! Attention to detail at Kidani is amazing. Staff is great!... More

Kidani is our Disney vacation club home resort and we love it. It's a bit out of the way and a bus ride to all parks but it a nice tranquil setting. I also think the best rooms on the Disney lot. A 1 bedroom Savannah views is plenty of room for 5 and with 2 separate full bathrooms is... More
