Our one bedroom suite exceeded expections for our three night stay! Our room was definitely far from the lobby but the quiet and secluded feel were well worth the walk! Having two full bathrooms was amazing. We enjoyed a wonderful lunch at Sanaa and also went to Jambo House and enjoyed a quick service meal at the Mara. Make sure... More

We are DVC members, this is our home resort and our 2nd visit here. We had a 1 bedroom villa, savanna view looking out on the Pembe savanna. As always, the rooms are immaculate and comfortable. This was the first time we stayed on the Pembe side, and while we did see many animals like gazelles, Kudu, Red Hogs, etc.,... More

I'd heard mixed reviews about Kidani Village, but we loved it! The lobby is gorgeous, the restaurant (Sanaa) is now one of our favorites at Disney World, the animal viewing areas are fantastic, and our room was clean, comfortable, and very well-themed. The only tiny negative was the lack of direct lighting over the bathroom mirror. Some people have complained... More

Beautiful resort, remarkable curved design. I can only imagine the thought that went into building it. Beautiful room, we had a studio with savanna view. It was nice to sit on the balcony and see which animal we would come by each day. There was plenty of drawers and closet space. The bathroom was a nice size and laid out... More

First time staying here with daughter and two children under 7...tucked away amidst the trees, when I walked into the lobby I felt immediate calm...soft music playing, beautiful decor and the friendliest staff...we were staying in a two bedroom, three full bath suite with a Savannah view, very long patio facing the savannah where we were treated to a family...

This hotel did everything right. I can't fault them for the layout so guests can see the animals; however, with 2 kids walking all over the parks for the day, the last thing you want to do is walk over 500 steps back to your room. Loved the animals and the extras they offer each night...movies by the pool, roasting... More

I love staying onsite at Disney World, but I love visiting resorts that offer a quiet retreat from the bustle of the theme parks. I hit the jackpot with this resort. It's a quiet, laid back, comfortable resort that gives you the feeling of truly being in a different place. My family and I visited Jan 4th-8th. We're a family... More

We're starting to be pretty knowledgeable about Disney resorts, and this is definitely one of the best "Deluxe" resorts on Walt Disney World property. Yes, it's annoying that you can't walk to any Park, but the bus system is better here than at the Epcot resorts - since you don't need to share with 2 or 3 other resorts, lengthening... More

We had a 2 bedroom vacation home. While the lighting is dim by normal standards, it was sufficient and worked with the theme of an African village. We had an ever changing view of the animals...giraffes, zebras, ostriches and many other more exotic types. Kidani is a Disney Vacation Club resort, so you need to know that it is not... More

Kidani is a very nice place to stay. The rooms are large, clean and very nicely decorated. However, if you are going to stay at Animal Kingdom Lodge stay at Jambo House. It is larger and all of the restaurants are there. The gift shop is 4 times larger then at Kidani Village. We have stayed at both places and... More
