We stayed at Disney's Kidani Animal Kingdom Lodge over Christmas. It was decorated tastefully and beautifully. There was plenty to keep kids and adults occupied with a staff that loves to talk with guests and Animal Guides on property who can help you identify and understand the animals. night vision goggles were available for viewing out by the fire pit...

These villas are beautiful and I love the pool. But, in order to get a burger, you have to order it via room service even if you are at the pool. your other option is to take the shuttle or walk to Animal Kingdom Lodge. This was very inconvenient and I am not sure we will stay here again due... More

We stayed at Kidani Village during Thanksgviving week (November 17-November 24). My husband and I are DVC members and this was our first time staying at KV. We brought extended family with us and had a 2 bedroom lock-off villa and a studio (there were 10 of us). The lock-off unit consists of a 1 bedroom villa and a studio... More

OK -- this is our home resort, we are partial. We LOVE Kidani. You really feel like you are somewhere else. Gives you time to decompress from the parks. We were there from the day after Christmas until the day after New Year's -- had extended family with us and friends in another unit. We had a BLAST! Kidani was... More

The "villas" are beautifully appointed, quiet, and you get a view of African animals on the savanna out your window (if you have a "savanna view" room). Everything worked fine. The lobby is great, and the lobby at nearby Jambo House is amazing. The pool is very good at both Kidani and Jambo. The pool bars have excellent fresh fruit... More

I wish there was a way to give the resort 4.5 stars. I don't know that it should only be 4.... We're DVC members and stayed in a two-bedroom Savannah View unit (7658), with family also staying in a standard view studio(7607). I listened to recommendations for room requests and was glad I did! While it was a bit of... More

We stayed in a one bedroom suite at Kidani Village. The resort is beautiful! The rooms are very nicely appointed with washers, dryers, and a well appointed kitchen making it excellent for families. The pool and water play areas are great for kids. The pool has a water slide for little ones and another for older kids and adults that... More

We stayed in a Grand Villa at Kidani for four nights in November. We loved the hotel, especially the room, but there were a few downside issues that left us unsure if we'd stay there again. I have stayed at Jambo, so as a disclaimer I am more of a "resort" person than an "isolation" person. Kidani has a tiny... More

I am a DISNEY FAN and DVC Member since 1993. I have stayed at many of the resorts and have always found everyone very, very helpful. Animal Kingdom is amazing and I especially like the dimness of the lobby and the drumming at Jambo house. There is a sense of peace and calm . I am educated every time I... More
