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

I am proud to say The Animal Kingdom Lodge is our home resort. That being said we have only stayed here once. The resort is gorgeous, one of the nicest, if not the nicest DVC resort in the mix (haven't stayed at The Grand Floridian yet). My only issue with the resort is how far away it is from the... More

Beautiful 2 BR villa that looked out onto the savannah. Only drawback was that our room was so far from the main lobby, pool, and bus stop. We were in one of the last beads on the end of the hotel, which meant lugging two kids and two strollers at least a quarter mile to the bus stop before we... More

I am a DVC member, buying in 2008 and adding on in 2012, with Kidani being my home resort. I read with interest the 1 star reviews of this property to see what someone could possibly complain about. I have stayed here 3 times, twice in a 1 bdrm Savannah view, and once in a 2 bdrm std view which... More

Amazing visit! Hotel is gorgeous and super clean! Staff was super friendly and helpful! Our room was a little far from the lobby-we timed it one day-it was a 5:05 minute walk but the hallways have beautiful views of the animals as you walk! Hope I can visit there again someday!

We stayed via a DVC booking in the Kidani Village for 2 nights/3 days, we had intially only booked one night, however acquired an extra night, however Disney were more than happy to accommodate us in the same room which saved us the hassle of having to move our luggage. We stayed in a Savannah Room view. The room was... More

From the minute we arrived we were made feel welcome. The check-in agent was excellent, our room was clean and very comfortable. We were amazed at the size of the bathroom suite. Our only concern was the distance we had to walk to our villa. Senior citizens should have villas closer to the lobby and bus area. However, that didn't... More

This was our first visit to Kidani Village. We stayed in a 2 bedroom villa with the savanna view. The room was beautifully decorated & clean. The lighting in the room was a bit dim. The bedrooms were large. The king bedroom had a huge bathroom with an awesome shower area. The other bedroom had 2 queen beds with a... More

After a long day of flight delays and hire car challenges, it was so uplifting to drive through the main entrance to the Animal Kingdom Lodge. An easy check in process in the beautiful Kidani Village foyer (not the same "wow" as the main lodge, but still beautiful) and we were off to find a parking spot in the undercover... More

It was wonderful. Super close to Animal Kingdom, which is great. The location wasn't much of an issue when we were trying to get to Magic Kingdom or any of the other parks. The atmosphere was great, and everything was impeccably detailed. The savannah view was great when there were animals, which was most of the time, but it was... More
