    I'm traveling with my 2 adult children and grand kids 6 & 2 in September. Booked at kidani village. I originally wanted to stay at bay lake tower being so close to MK but cost was way over budget. What do you think about the Animal Kingdom?

    Hi Cheryl,

    I love Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village.  We stayed there on a trip recently, and I could not be happier with this unique, beautiful resort.  The decor is amazing, and is filled with African culture.  The ability to see exotic animals such as giraffes outside of nearly every window at the resort is wonderful.  The villas are spacious and lovely, and include some of the biggest bathrooms I have ever seen!

    Be sure to check out the recreation guide that you are given when you check in.  From cultural activities such as medallion rubbing and African folktales, to animal programs including night viewing of the animals with night vision goggles, there is so much to do at this resort.  If you are a Disney Vacation Club Member, you can book the Sunrise Safari, which is now available to Disney Vacation Club members staying at Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas.  You can learn more about this exclusive experience by visiting the Disney Vacation Club Member website.  Once you have logged in, choose "Membership Magic," and from the drop-down menu choose "Member Experiences."  You will find more information on this page.

    Be sure also to visit Sanaa, the wonderful restaurant at Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village which features African fare and Indian flavors.  Finally, I bet that your grandchildren will love Samawati Springs Pool and the nearby Uwanja Camp water play area.

    Yes, you will be a bit further away from Magic Kingdom - but it is just a bus ride away.  I believe that you will enjoy the unique experience at Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village.  Have a great time planning your vacation, Cheryl, and please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions!
