Our family returned to Animal Kingdom Kidani Village for a end of summer trip. Our room was far away from the lobby but somehow the kids had fun doing the walking back to the lobby. Even the hallways at Disney resorts are filled with ineresting things or views. We were lucky that there was an elevator near our room that... More

We are DVC members and can have any choice of resort and we keep coming back to this one. The cast members are incredible and make you feel right at home.From the pool to the scenery this is truly a gorgeous place to stay at.

This is one of the newest additions to Disney. Check-in was quick and since we had booked through a Disney vacation club member they waived the daily internet charge of US$9.95. The studio was fully furnished with a kitchenette. The down side was that the room was cleaned once every 4 days,unless you paid an extra fee to clean daily.... More

We were very disappointed with service at this dvc/hotel property. Examples include lack of turndown after promising it for kids beds, one and one half hour wait to get back to this hotel using Disney busses from the parks, and a rude concierge who took nearly one hour to sell and upgrade our park tickets. Beware also if you book... More

The room (studio) was clean and comfortable, the staff was very friendly, the pool was just beautiful. We went to the pool at night a lot. There's nothing like sitting in a hot tub after walking the parks! Last time we stayed at the POP Century which we really liked too, BUT there is a difference that I noticed especially... More

Loved the extra space and amenities our 1 BR Villa afforded. We had a lovely savanna view in the Jambo House and enjoyed it and all the animals. As others have mentioned, it is somewhat of a walk to the lobby but not all that unusual when you consider this is a BIG hotel complex. Front desk and other cast... More

We just came home. The manager will was terrific. Very long walk from our room to the lobby and the pool even after we found the short cut under the garage. A lot of bees at this resort. It was beautiful and we would go back. Again the manager was the best

Excellent place. Only thing they could improve on would be the wi-fi. I have stayed at little mom and pop places that had better wi-fi and much less cost.

We have been DVC members for over three years and truly enjoy our membership. Kidani Village did not disappoint. We stayed here from Aug 13-20th in a savannah view studio for our family of four. The kids LOVED seeing the different animals and had a great time at the Kidani Village pool. Our room was located in the Zazu section,... More

It's a beautiful resort - but.... To reach any of the amenities you have to go thru the lobby, which can be quite a long walk from your room. The Savannah view room is very relaxing if you take the time to sit on the balcony and enjoy it. If you are a family going for a laid back, relaxed... More
