    We have reservations in 2 weeks @ Kidani Villas in A/K! Can I request a certain room or at least area/floor & if so how? Via phone, internet or in-person @ check-in? Also, can we get groceries somewhere for the kitchen we'll have? Thanks!

    Hi Debbie! Congratulations on your upcoming trip to Walt Disney World Resort. You're going to have an amazing stay at Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani a word it's simply majestic!

    You can submit special requests yourself when you make your initial booking online. Since your vacation is quickly approaching I would suggest calling Disney Vacation Club member services so they can note your reservation with the special request. The Cast Members will be able to give you a better idea of what's possible in terms of specific room requests.

    Since we always drive to our resorts, I'm able to bring groceries from home or pick up what I need locally before checking in. Several other Moms have been able to get a full assortment of groceries delivered directly to Walt Disney Resorts from local supermarkets. The 2 most popular are Garden Grocer and Goodings.

    While these companies frequently service Walt Disney World Resort guests, they are not affiliated with Disney. Keep in mind there are minimum order requirements and delivery fees associated with both. I encourage you to check them out and decide what best fits your needs.

    The other option is to pack food in your luggage. Many of my Mom friends find it super convenient and cheap to pack all their food essentials that don’t require refrigeration in an extra bag.  You’ll likely have to check the bag if you have any liquid items. If you're not flying with an airline that offers 1 free checked bag,  the extra bag fee is worth the convenience of having all your essentials with you when you arrive at your resort.

    I hope your upcoming trip to Walt Disney World magical!
