Kidani Village is a new property adjacent to the Animal Kingdom Lodge. The rooms are generally all suites. Ours was a one bedroom, with a full kitchen, washer/dryer and sleep sofa and sleep chair in the livingroom. Two full baths, with the master having both a whirlpool and stall shower. The room also has a safe. Internet is wired only and $9.95/day.
Service is Disney's specialty and it shows in this hotel. A "cast member" greeted our party by name as we got off the free Disney Magical Express from the airport. Special pins for the first timers and recent graduate in our group were part of the special package that he handed to us. Because it was early in the day, our room was not yet ready but they offered to text my phone when it would be available. Our room keys were given to us ahead of time and our luggage stored. Less than a hour later, while we were eating lunch, the text came through.
This resort's beautiful African decor is a mere setting for what is outside -- animals that rove the 100 acre preserve. It was incredible to observe the wide variety of animals.
The resort has its own bus area, with buses to all of the Disney attractions. This was the only negative of the location -- because it is further away from most of the parks, the wait for the bus tends to be longer than when I stayed at other luxury resorts and you only have the bus system available.
The room and hotel were kept spotless by a cheerful crew. The front desk was always eager to please.
Everything was geared towards having a wonderful time and we most certainly did. Everything was wonderful.
What also makes this resort special is the size. Unlike the larger resorts, the smaller size of this property made it seem more intimate and exclusive.
