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

Shockingly, I did not love this hotel and I really wanted to. We are a family of 4 including two kids under age 3. I wanted a Disney hotel that had enough space for us to be comfortable and where we had the ability to do breakfast in our room. This hotel delivered amazingly on that! We booked the 1... More

We stayed at Kidani Village over Christmas this year. We had the best room/location, the staff went above and beyond, and the village was relaxing and quiet. We could have stayed a whole month. Coffee in the morning on the balcony off our room watching animals was amazing.

We had a room facing the animal paddock and it was amazing. I could have stayed on the patio and watched the animals all day! We had a 2 br / 3 ba suite and it was fantastic. The kitchen had everything you needed. One of the showers had really strong water pressure (almost too strong) but that was my... More

Our family of 5 stayed in a 1 Bedroom Villa at Kidani Village (purchased someone's DVC points) over Christmas & New Year's. We found it to be more than comfortable, and I would definitely consider this hotel again for future visits. We chose Kidani Village over Jambo House because the 1 BR villas at Kidani included 2 bathrooms. That's a... More

This is my Disney Vacation Club "home" and I adore the place. We spilt our stay for 2 weeks in a studio standard view and a 1 bedroom Savannah view. The hotel is utterly unique from the animals roaming the grounds to the African art adoring the walls. As it is on the far west of the Disney property it's... More
