    My husband and I are DVC (Disney Vacation Club) Members. This is our favorite place to stay when visiting WDW. Our children and myself included, love sitting on the balcony in the morning while having breakfast watching the animals roam the savanna. The hotel staff also know as Cast Members are always nice and go above and beyond to make... More

    We just got back from 4 nights at Kidani Village, and we loved it. Yes, there can be a long walk to your room (and we had that) but the awesome savannah view more than made up for that. Very unique setting, and the usual excellent Disney touches in the room. Found the WDW transport service buses to be very... More

    My family and I stayed at Disney's Animal Kingdom Resort for our family vacation. We wait all year to be together to enjoy our annual passes, and Disney did not disappoint! Our room was very spacious, two bedrooms in one with a beautiful living room, richly decorated rooms, amazing bathrooms, and a balcony view to die for! We had all... More

    Yes, the resort is big, so the walk to/from your room can be long and difficult with tired children (or adults!) BUT, the view is amazing! I could sit outside and watch the animals all day. You should stay here at least once just for the experience alone. Great lounge areas to relax and kids/family activities.

    This is an absolutely beautiful resort. My Daughter and I along with my two grandson's stayed in an efficiency unit here. We just returned and I cannot say enough about the beauty and the serene atmosphere. But.......it was a mile walk from our room to the bus stop.

    We're DVC members and have had good experiences at most of the sites. We've stayed here twice and both times it was not good. 1. Drink like an animal. Only when the humans let you, only at the right times. Heaven help you if you get up before 7 a.m. and want some coffee. Kidani locks up the refillable mug... More

    We decided to take the kids and did our research and decided to stay at the villas since they had the most animals compared to the other Animal Kingdom Lodges. We loved how you could go out to the fire pit and see the animals at night with the night vision. The staff were so knowledgeable on the animals and... More

    So we are not Disney Vacation Club (DVC) members and we used a points broker for a two week stay in Walt Disney World.

    My sister and I just took our 87 yr. old mom to visit Disney. We stayed at Kidani and it was perfect for the three of us.
