After numerous trips to Disney World, we finally decided to stay at Kidani Village and were not quite as impressed as we expected. The villa was very good and the view of the savannah was wonderful. When walking into Kidani Village, it is if you are in a different world. The resort is so peaceful and a great escape from... More

Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas is 'AMAZING'. The animals roam outside the rooms in the morning and at night. There was always giraffes roaming around. The resort was very big and it is far from all the parks. It is not next to Animal Kingdom park, about 10 minute car ride. You are not walking anywhere from this hotel, a bus... More

Stayed here in our second week of a 2 week stay in Disney World (first week was in The Boardwalk Villas - also amazing). Everything about this place was stunning. 3 amazing places to eat, The Mara (quick service), Boma (stunning buffet for lunch and dinner) and Saana (Indian restaurant). Rooms were huge and gorgeous. Can't say enough good things... More

We had a two bedroom, two bath suite. The bedrooms were large and clean. The master bathroom was enormous. The kitchen is fully equipped. There is grocery store in Lake Buena Vista that you can pre-order your groceries and they will be delivered to your room at check-in. This was so great because with two kids on vacation who wants...

Stayed at the Kidani Village in a 1bedroom suite with the Savana View. When we arrive at the hotel a concierge was already in the front of the lobby waiting to give us our room keys and package. A nice welcome after our very long travel. So as we head to our room, we see Zebras, Giraffe & more thru... More

We are Disney Vacation Club members and we own at Bay Lake Tower. We decided to try Kidani village. First, the resort is beautiful, very well maintained and all of the staff that we encountered were courteous and helpful. Our savannah view studio was clean and very well appointed. It was a very nice room on the third floor. Even... More

First, I am not sure why they call this part of the resort "Villas". Let's be honest, these are just standard hotel rooms, they just happen to be in the new part of the resort. The rooms are clean and well taken care of. LCD TV w/ DVD player, clean spacious bathroom, service was pretty good, but they did start... More
