Our first time here...the environment is amazing... I appreciated the warm lighting, African Art and pleasing architecture. This resort is a worthy cultural experience. Our room was clean and comfortable and our balcony looked out onto the range of wild animals. The outdoor pool area is like a themed Water Park....very relaxing and great for families. This property is an... More

Having been to now four Disney resorts (Wilderness lodge, Coronado Springs, Port Orleans Riverside, and now Kidani), I really wanted to be that person that disputed the size of this resort. Knowing that all Disney resorts are large and require walking, I thought how big can Kidani really be. Well, it’s huge. Our room (7764) was located in the Pumba... More

Booked an 8 day/7 night stay through a Disney Vacation Club Owner. Upon confirmation and recommendation from seller, I called numerous times to request a room "close" to the lobby. Upon arrival of getting off of Disney's Magical Express, was told I had been sent a text with room number. I checked my phone in front of person giving this... More

The one bedroom unit at Kidani village had 2 bathrooms and was sufficiently large enough for 4 adults, a toddler, and an infant. The accommodations were very comfortable. The pool and play area were great. Still, as a timeshare owner who was able to exchange into the Animal Kingdom Villas, I would encourage people not to purchase through the DVC.... More

This is a resort that will give you a once in a lifetime experience. The lobby is smaller than the main house known as the Jambo House, but it has a great sense of home when you enter. The animals are always out for view both around the resort lobby and restaurant as well as right outside your balcony for... More

Kidani village is an amazing place to stay. We stayed a week. Upon arrival we went straight to the room - which was so nice after traveling all day. We checked in on line and they just texted me the room number. Our family suite was great. Spacious, clean and equipped with everything we needed for our stay. The views... More

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
