First off, we are Disney Vacation Club members who recently added points to our membership by purchasing at Animal Kingdom. For our inaugural stay, we stayed here for 4 nights this month in a studio. Having done no prior research, we lucked out and got a room on the lobby level only one building's-length corridor away from the Front Desk. (I can't imagine how much more of a hassle it would have been had we been placed in one of the far, outermost buildings!) The room smelled distinctly of bug killer for the first two days. Being DVC members, the size and amenities of the room were as expected. What was NOT EXPECTED was the tremendously long walk for breakfast in the morning! The only quick service facility is located at Jambo House which they describe as a "quick 10-min walk."...... not for a 5 year old! Hopping on the van was not an option as we would have had to fold up the double stroller and hold the infant and toddler in our laps?!?! To add insult to injury, the morning of our departure, I inquired if the Disney Magical Express airport bus service could pick us up at Jambo House since we were making the trek there for breakfast. I was told "no" (once we got to Jambo House of course) and had to scarf down a breakfast and run back to Kidani only to see that the bus stopped at Jambo House immediately after picking us up! ridiculous that there is no food service at Kidani (other than a formal sit-down place that is only open for dinner). Totally inconvenient for everyone, especially anyone using the Disney Dining Plan.
