DVC owners since 2000 and first time at an Animal Kingdom Lodge. Not my favorite place to stay. Keep in mind this review is being written during a COVID-19 stay so some things at the resort were not available. Upon arrival, we were pleased to see parking was under the building. This kept us out of any rain and the scorching heat. Our room was ready when we arrived which was nice so we were able to go right to the room, Unfortunately, our Magic Bands did not work and the function of our phone to unlock the door did not work. So one of us had to walk FOREVER to the lobby to get this resolved. We were in room 7864 just an FYI if you do not like to walk a far distance to your room from lobby area. The cast member did something on the computer and said you should be all set. I asked what the problem was and she really couldn't say. We had no problems after that. Room was a studio with Savannah view. It appeared a bit run down, the shower was terrible, the lighting in the bathroom was way too dark and overall, just did not feel Disney in quality. Maybe in was COVID -19 but there was not even a pad of paper in the room. The only real good thing was of course the animals from the balcony. Loved seeing the giraffes, zebras etc. We did venture to the pool area which again was quite a walk and found it adequate. We had a car so the location, although you could not walk to any parks, was okay. I am sure this resort is great for families with children, but for couples there are better options.

My 12 year-old daughter and I just left after a five day stay. We had a Savannah view and it was magical! Cast members were friendly and helpful and the room and common areas were very clean. We had a nice time at the pool and transportation to all parks was quick. Safety precautions were everywhere and guests were very considerate of distancing. Looking back, I wish I had mentioned to someone that the refrigerator smelled absolutely horrid upon arrival, as I ended up throwing out groceries because the smell transferred to them. Room 7224–it should be checked out. It was very icky, but overall everything else was perfect!

We stayed in a 2 bedroom suite and it was amazing! The views were nice to wake up to every morning, especially if you have kids that love animals. My only complaint is how far you have to walk from the entrance to your room. After a long day of walking at the parks, I dreaded walking so far to our room. Otherwise, it was a really great place to stay.

Thanks for sharing your stay with us at Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village. A 2-Bedroom Villa here is absolutely stunning, both inside and out, and the views are even more stellar. I'm sorry to see you had some concerns about the distance of the rooms. Did you know you can actually put in a request when you book to be close to the lobby?! While it's not always available, our teams work hard to accommodate as many requests as they can. Thanks again for the fantastic review of your fantastic stay. We hope to welcome you home again soon!

My third stay at a Disney resort and having moved here from the Poly after 5 nights, we thoroughly enjoyed our 4-night stay at Kidani! My husband had spent time here years ago with his (now adult) children and all the positive raving he had done in advance of our visit did not disappoint! From the moment we stepped foot on the property, we were greeted by giraffes and Ankole cattle -- and for every moment we were in the resort, at least SOME animals were visible from our savannah view room. Our room was clean and very comfortable, with plenty of lighting, and I was especially surprised at the free laundry room on the second floor (bonus!), which I gladly took advantage of to freshen up our clothes in the 100oF heat! Whilst we spent most of our time at the parks (buses to get there were plentiful throughout the day), we also dined once at Sana'a and once at the pool bar, enjoyed chatting with (and learning from) Disney staff about the animals at the lodge, and were delighted by the massive thunderstorms that hit overhead on several nights. It was wild to see the animals' reactions to the storms! A wonderful stay and we thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to "get in extra steps" each day by simply walking the grounds to Jambo House (which was basically closed at the time) or along the loooooooong lodge corridors.

Stay with the animals. From your balcony you can watch the animals wander around, sleep in the shade, and gather for feeding time. And each day the show is different! The hotel is breathtaking, the grounds immaculate, and the staff gracious and friendly. All of this and being within a stones throw from all the Disney magic.

I just love this picture-perfect review of our amazing Resort. It's always a wild time when staying at Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village. Just like you said, the "show" is never the same as the animals roam around, feed as they please, and just enjoy the sunshine. When you're not relaxing on your balcony checking out the savanna, you can head on over to Samawati Springs Pool for a dip! Did you get a chance to check out Sanaa? It has delicious food with impeccable sights as well. Thanks again for stopping by! We'll see you next time! Addie Disney Social Reviews
