We recently stayed in a 2 bedroom Villa in the Kidani Village at Animal Kingdom Lodge. This resort is one of my favorite resorts in general, and it did not dissapoint. I will say going into our stay I was a bit skeptical reading some of the reviews about Kidani not having as many animals to view, and it seems... More

This is becoming one of my favorite DVC properties. It is away from all of the chaos and it is so much quieter than the other disney resorts. There seems to be a respect for the animals from young and old. It is really relaxing watching the animals right outside of your window or from your balcony. It is worth... More

This hotel sits next to the Jambo House as part of the Animal Kingdom Lodge. The hotel sits around a "savannah" which is home to a number of animals. Was great for our daughter to try to find animals and observe their activities. The bus system worked great and its about a 15 minute ride to the Magic Kingdom from... More

We stayed at Kidani Village in October 2011. We purchased here in 2009, so this was our first stay at our home property. Because we had friends with us, we reserved a two bedroom villa. The Savannah View was awesome, and we all fell in love with the Okapi, which resembled a giraffe and a horse. There was plenty of... More

Just got back from AKV, Kidani Village and we loved it! We stayed for a few days, and honestly if we stayed any longer we never would have even been to the parks. We were so mesmerized with the view! I really enjoyed staying here with my daughter. The room was spectacular in African and Indonesian decorum are balcony overlooked... More

Kidani Village is the smaller sister resort to Jambo House. We are Disney Vacation Club members, so I can't really speak to pricing at the resort since we did not have to pay out of pocket for the stay. Check in was efficient and polite. The bellman and valet were fabulous. We stayed in a 1 bedroom villa. The room... More

Love this place! The service is excellent, my one year old was given many coloring books, pins, etc. We loved the savannah view- it was a nice change from the hustle of the parks. My son wanted to sit on the balcony all day and look at the animals. We cannot wait to stay here again.

We stayed at Koranic Village from August 19-22, 2012. It was amazing!! My daughter loved waking up in the morning and running out onto the balcony to see what animals were out. The staff was amazing and extremely helpful when we ran into some issues (none of them resort related at all!!) The only downfall I had was that the... More
