We stayed in a deluxe studio. We couldn't quite stretch to a Savannah view but we were not disappointed with our stay at all. All we had to do was walk out into the corridor to see the animals through the windows, or head downstairs to the lobby to go outside and view from there. We loved the theming of the hotel and the beautiful lobby. We ate breakfast at Boma over at AKL which was great. The shuttle between the two buildings is quick and runs constantly back and forth so it's very easy to use. The pool and spa were great and we appreciated the changing facilities nearby due to the colder weather and not wanting to walk around in wet stuff. My only complaint is that the cast member who checked us in was not the most friendly and she also gave us incorrect directions to our room. But we figured it out and we didn't let it spoil our stay. Overall we had a great time.

Stayed here end of September/ early October. We are DVC members and this was our first time back in five years. Staying for two weeks we booked a one bed savannah view. All I can say is when we used to visit we’d get the wow factor now it just has lost its sparkle. We changed rooms after two days as my close to lobby request ended up with us miles away, both rooms we saw had carpets that badly need replaced. Aging appliances and rooms that badly need refurbished. It just felt lacklustre and not what we fell in love with all those years ago. I used to love coming here but after this time and also having visited other DVC resorts for a look we definitely don’t want to come back till it gets a refurb.

We stayed at Kidani Village as we wanted to stay on Disney property and we had family group of 7. We wanted the larger villa. It was ok…but below the standard I would expect at a Disney property and for the price. The unit is dated and clearly older Could use remodeling in the rooms. Our dryer did not work. Sometimes we had hot water, sometimes it was lukewarm. On a positive note, the beds were very comfortable The balcony was very nice and we were able to see animals roaming around very cool . We were disappointed in the restaurant options at this location. Rainy night and we wanted to eat in. The main restaurant has limited offerings for kids, and it is basically all unique African food. If you don’t like curry, you were out of luck. Restaurant and food were not kid friendly at all. No room service . Very nice pool with good kids area for younger ones. Rooms and all areas were very clean The resort is “on property” but took 15-25 minutes on a shuttle bus to get to any of the parks from this resort. Might as well have stayed off property at a better price Overall just ok experience I would not stay here again

We stayed here for a week in sept. In a deluxe studio with Savannah view. The room was plenty big enough for my husband and I. The savannah view was amazing. We love sitting on the balcony and just watching the animals! It was great to have a fridge and microwave as well. A few bumps at the first of the stay but everything was take. Care of. Can not wait to go back again!

Absolutely fantastic 5 star accommodations. Clean, friendly staff, amazing restaurants, amazing decor and views. Terrific family friendly resort with full kitchens in the one bedroom units. Get the savanna view rooms to watch all the animals right from your room.

Room Tip: The savanna view is worth it. If you go to Sanaa Restaurant, get the bread service. Amazing...

This place was such a horrible experience, I probably won't come back to Disney. On three occasions they messed up our passes and it caused issues with our party trying to get into the parks. It felt like pulling teeth trying to get someone to come clean the room and get the trash, and to top that, one of their bus drivers slammed the bus door shut on my spouses leg, and didn't even have the courtesy to ask if he was okay let alone even apologize. When the front desk staff were told about this, they threw their hands up and did absolutely nothing. So, I guess it is okay for their employees to harm/injure their guests? The room was freezing the entire time, and you can't even adjust it. Never again. I have never been so disappointed and strongly suggest not staying here. This was a family vacation/birthday trip and there was nothing magical about it. More like a complete nightmare.

This is specifically related to Kidani Village and not Jambo House(where I have only had wonderful experiences previously. This is my first and only Kidani Village experience). Had just spent 5 nights in a one bedroom villa at Wilderness Lodge and had a wonderful time. We wanted to spend our last nights paying the premium for a Savannah View at Animal Kingdom Lodge and have this last weekend as waking up to a nice view over the Savannah and animals. What we got for paying a premium for a Savannah View was in fact a worse view than standard and an overall poor experience to start these two nights. Right now I’d rather be at any other hotel. Our room was ready late - which happens. When we get to the room none of our magic bands are working. This also happens fairly often and I know is a quick fix at the lobby. We opened with door with our cell phones to step out on the balcony. We noticed the wardrobe door doesn’t stay closed. Another small fix- annoying we have to deal with it but easily taken care of when we fix the magic band problem. So when we step out on the balcony to see the Savannah what we see is another building to our right side perpendicular to ours, the utility service entrance, a roadway, a nice barbed wire fence, and the small back corner of a Savannah. It would be the equivalent of seeing a backstage area for animals- nothijg you would expect to be guest forward. While I was monumentally disappointed immediately decided just to be positive for my partner. First words from him, “This is terrible, why did we pay for this?”. So far too many missteps in the first five minutes of our arrival. I’ve stayed in Savannah views before and have never seen anything like this. Probably my own fault for booking at Kidani which I had never done in the past. The obnoxious part is that nowhere on their website does Disney describe in anyway that you may only have a partial or limited Savannah View and pay the same premium. It should be called Savannah View- full/partial/blocked all at the same room rate because the reality is that is what you can get at Kidani- at their discretion with no recourse. It’s a poor business practice and one decided by the management at Disneys’s Animal Kingdom Lodge. I decide to walk to the lobby and see if they can help me. I’m polite and personable. I’ll never be the person to go a throw a fit to a cast member for something that isn’t their fault. I get to the lobby and am greeted kindly. I tell the cast member I hope that they can help me. I explain the situation. Our magic bands don’t work. The wardrobe door doesn’t stay closed(this is because the magnet the holds it closed was knocked back away from the door). And the Savannah view we have is a terrible corner that doesn’t really look at a Savannah. I see more utility and building and trees that are fenced off than anything else. Is there any room we could be moved to that would help us out? She said she would make a call to see what would be available. Don’t know why we would need a phone call for that but tell her I appreciate her help. Cast member sits on hold for ten minutes in front of me before saying no one’s answered and there’s nothing she can do to help us today. Possibly tomorrow if we would like to move again on our last night. I say no thank you and leave. This is the first hour of my experience at Kidani Village. Why would a guest ever return for this? Anyone in my situation would pick another resort next time and that’s the reasonable solution.

Horrible wrong and stress placed on our vacation by worker ripping us off on our first day. We paid for Savana View and placed us in a back yard and ignored other requests. Then they wanted to charge us for 2 packages being delivered that we never ordered. Had us wasting expensive time investigating credit cards, banks & Amazon account. Turns out they do not know how to read a name on a package. No appolgy or anything. After spending hours on the phone while trying to spend time in with my family, Manager did make room correct after first night of not being able to settle in due to moving room on 2nd day. One check-in woman said "I don't know why they try to sell those rooms as a savana view". Feeling very pissed off at the treatment we received. Workers would act like they would be fixing problem, only to not fix it and waste more time. This is something that should be investigated. Causes rage to customer. Fold out bed was horrible...you could feel the bars and squeaked when someone moved at all. Manager should spend a week sharing one of those beds! The half and half provided is International delight, making coffee taste horrible. Didn't sell half and half in their little mini store so we had to make a trip to a convenient store.

We had a 1 bedroom Savannah view room for our family of 4. The room was great. It was large, very clean and well stocked. Loved our balcony and enjoyed the view.. especially sunrise and sunset. The parking situation is really convenient. You just park in the garage below the section of rooms you’re staying in and the walk to your room is quick. Bus service between the lodges and parks was a breeze.. but you have to rely on the Disney app to keep track of the schedule, the staff aren’t able help with that. This is a very peaceful place.. the quieter and smaller of the two lodges. Jambo House is worth seeing and it’s only a 7 minute walk if you don’t want to take the shuttle. Kidani Village is a really nice contrast from the excitement/chaos of the theme parks. A couple of bummers.. the pool was crowded and our daughters had severe eye redness and burning that lasted hours after swimming. They were miserable. And the price is really high. You pay a lot but if you don’t think about it, you can really enjoy yourself here. If you’re looking for lots of action and activities for the kids you should pick somewhere else. If you want a more peaceful, picturesque experience, this is the place.

We stayed in a studio unit that looked like it had not been refurbished in decades. The furniture was beat up and the carpet frayed and appeared dirty. Our room was a long distance from the lobby so it was at least a 5 minute walk with kids. Even the bellman joked about the never-ending hallway. I was also disappointed that in the little kitchenette only had a couple of small plastic cups and 3 plastic bowls. Not your typical Disney Vacation Club unit. This is definitely not a “Deluxe Resort,” that I am used to staying at in Disney. The upside of the room were the amazing animals we could watch from our balcony. The pool was very nice and my grandkids really enjoyed it.
