I'll keep this story short. Disney Vacation Club member since 1996. Our home resort is Disney's Old Key West and Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge. We've stayed at the Jambo House before (Hotel rooms). This is our first stay at Kidani Village (Villas). the Good - Disney cast member greated us right at the door. Took us inside the lobby and... 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

We recently stayed in a studio ‘villa’ at Animal Kingdom Lodge’s Kidani Village. The hotel is very nice with some cool features, but it is not without its flaws. The décor and the lobby were very nice and check-in went smoothly. While I was at first skeptical of the benefit of a ‘Savannah View’ room, I was surprised at how... More

Animal Kingdom Lodge Kidani is superior to the Jambo House facility in multiple ways. The rooms are bigger and accommodations seem nicer than they were in Jambo. this may be due in part to the fact they were built post-Eisner in the Disney management saga. Our room was quite a walk away from the lobby, but we were on the... More

Five of us stayed in a one bedroom at Kidani Village. The place was very nice and we had a view of the Savanna where the animals roam free. The only negatives were the limited food sources. If u want a burger u had to go to the main lodge where there was a counter service restaurant was located. That... More
