    Hi! We are staying at kidani and I am in the planning stage of advanced dining reservations and meal prep. Does this resort sell charcoal for the BBQ's? We don't have a vehicle this visit so going off site is not an option! Thanks!

    Hi Fiona, and greetings from one fellow Canuck to another!

    I am so happy to hEAR you have an upcoming stay at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas – Kidani Village. This is one of my family's favourite places to stay during a visit to Walt Disney World. It is like you have traveled to a different continent as you step into an African savanna lodge with dark woods, painted tapestries and art, and African music. And being able to watch exotic animals roaming throughout the vast savannas surrounding the Resort is like nothing else! 

    As with all Disney Vacation Club Resorts, you will enjoy many “home away from home” amenities at Kidani Village, including an outdoor grill area where guests are welcome to cook and eat food. The Barbeque Pavilion at Kidani Village is located adjacent to the sports courts and contains several charcoal barbeque grills as well as an adjacent covered eating area with picnic tables perfect for Al fresco dining. Grills do not have to be reserved, and are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

    Fiona, I made some inquiries on your behalf and was informed by a Disney Cast Member that subject to availability, charcoal is regularly stocked and should be available for purchase at Johari Treasures at Kidani Village. In addition, you should also be able to obtain complimentary cooking utensils and grilling tools at the Kidani Village Community Hall.

    I hope you have a wonderful upcoming vacation at Kidani Village. Should you have any further questions in advance of your trip, please be sure to send them our way. We would be happy to hEAR from you!
