I have stayed at Kidani Village 5 times now, while just recently staying 10 nights in a 2-bedroom vacation home. I love it. There are few places on this planet that I have traveled that are more peaceful and relaxing. One of my favorite things is to eat my lunch or drink a coffee on the balcony overlooking the savannah.... More

My family and I visited AKL for two nights at the end of our stay in Florida this year. If you like the whole staying on site thing then you will of course feel differently than me about this hotel. I thought the resort was fantastic and the staff were very knowledgeable. There was also a lot of activities, my... More

We've been DVC members for 7 years and have stayed at most of the DVC resorts at Disney. We had eaten dinner at AKL, but not stayed, so decided to do a quick trip there after the Disney Cruise. The lobby area is beautifully done with great views of the Savannah. The gift shop at Kidani is very limited in... More

My family checked into the Kildani Lodge for a 5 night stay. At check in, there were a few workers speaking another language very loudly in the lobby at midnight. Check in procedures were fine. Our room was a 2 bedroom villa with a savannah review. Nice room that went with the decor of the lodge. However, it's definitely not... More

We stayed at the Kidani Village in October 2012. I researched all the resorts on Disney property and chose this one. I did have a coupon to apply towards a deluxe resort on Disney grounds which worked out great. Our room was ready when we arrived. We had a 2 bedroom villa standard. The rooms were beautifully decorated and there... More

AK Kidani Village was lovely! The bus service was easy - even with Star Wars Weekend and Memorial Day weekend visitors there. Staff was pleasant and helpful - this was our first visit as a DVC member and they answered all of our questions. The animal guides were funny and were delighted to have conversations about the animals on the... More

Kidani Village is set up for vacation clubs so it is more of a long term stay option with full kitchen and washer/dryer in the rooms. We stayed 7 nights and loved the 1 bedroom so our daughter could nap undisturbed like a normal studio hotel room would cause. There is not daily hotel service scheduled, but you can get... More

The atmosphere is spectacular and the service is great. The pool is a good size and seeing the animals is really fun. The rooms are nice and the beds are comfortable. If you need a bellman, make sure to ask for Tipton.

As DVC members, this was our first visit to the Animal Kingdom Lodge and we were not disappointed. My wife and I had a 1 bedroom unit in Kidani Village facing the Sunset Savannah. If you want to be at the "center" of all Disney activity, this is NOT your resort. If you prefer the nice quiet, relaxing vacation, the... More
