I took this trip with my 5year old (for her birthday), my 6 year old twins and my 8 year old son. I left on Wednesday with the kids and my husband met us there for the weekend.
Lets see the free transport to the villa via bus that you get with staying on property had its ups and downs at the time that I arrived there was a long wait to board our bus...made me a little testy to start off my trip. But the rest of the service was good.
The hotel room I stayed in a one bedroom suite, was spacious...there was a jaccuzzi tub in the master it was wel kept and the children could see girraffe, wilderbeast, ostrich (a vulture for some God awful reason) right from the balcony. I brought binoculars as I was advised to do and animal watch took up loads of thier down time. The restarant at Kadani (the newer villa) was not great. I ate there the first day for lunch with my kids and the staff was nice but the food was not very kid friendly or tasty.
The lodge is a ways away from everything so you must plan carefully and give yourself plenty of time to get from place to place. We did an exellent character breakfast with Lilo and Stitch on my daughters b-day...expensive but worth every dime. They took picture with each character and the food was pretty good. We did Mickey's backyard Bar B Q. The food was so so but the kids LOVED getting up and dancing with the characters so they didn't care. All in all I would stay in the animal kingdom resort again I did not utilize all of the amenities available...so much to do so little time. I did have groceries delivered to the hotel the day after I got there...which cut down of food costs drastacally. But I ended up leaving a lot behind or trying to pack it in my suitcase...next time I will be more carefull about that. I tipped the mades and got little knick nacks and crafts left on my pillow each day...all it was a very nice and relaxing stay.
