    I am staying at Animal kingdom Lodge. Are the Villas within walking distance from the Lodge?

    Jambo, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Eileen!

    Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge is an outstanding choice of Resort hotels; I cannot say enough about the authentic African theming with original art and artifacts throughout the Resort hotel, such as the 16-foot Igbo Ijele mask which was created by the Igbo people of Nigeria, for example.

    Walking between Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge and Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village is indeed possible and quite scenic, as you pass alongside the active Savannas. I find it especially interesting at dusk under moonlit skies, observing over 30 species of African wildlife in their natural habitats.

    Eileen, if you decide you want to arrive at Kidani Village quicker, you can catch the Internal Resort Shuttle van which arrives every 15-minutes from just outside the Main Lobby of both the Lodge and the Villas.

    As a Guest at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge, you can enjoy the Wanyama Safari and Dinner experience, affording you up-close animal encounters followed by a delicious, multi-course meal.

    Don’t forget to customize your plans with My Disney Experience for your Disney Dining Reservations, FastPass+ planning and personalizing MagicBands.

    We hope you enjoy your stay, Eileen and wish you many magical and exotic adventures!
