    We are thinking about joining DVC and planing on staying at AKL we are wondering how it is? Beautiful and magical I'm sure but the little things like is it convenient to fill your refillable mug or how far are the buses or pools ? Thanks for the help

    Jambo Melissa,

    We became Disney Vacation Club Members because we love the flexibility to have a very different vacation every single time we visit Disney Parks. While you might chose to stay at Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas on one visit to Walt Disney World Resort, you could experience somewhere like Disney's Beach Club Villas the next. We love it and hope that you will too!

    Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas, located in both Jambo House and Kidani Village, provide a backdrop for an incredible vacation unlike any other. Of course the feathered, furry, and hooved friends that roam the savannas just beyond the walls are incredible. There is just nothing like enjoying your morning coffee on your expansive private balcony while watching the roaming zebra and ostriches just feet away. Oh, and you absolutely must take advantage of the night vision goggles experience!

    There are two wonderful pools on property.  Both Uzima Pool, located outside Jambo House, and Samawati Springs Pool located outside Kidani Village, are expansive and stunning swimming holes offering zero depth entry for easy enjoyment for all ages.  Uwanja Camp, the water play area for children is an absolute blast with different zones for kids from 4 to 8-years old and up!

    You will find Rapid Refill Stations for your refillable mug conveniently located at the Mara, a tasty Quick Service restaurant in Jambo House; Johari Treasures, the convenience store in Kidani Village; and the Maji Pool Bar at Samawati Springs. Simple!

    Of course you will want to taste some of the delectable and unique flavors of Africa at the two table-service dining locations just steps from your Villa, Jiko - The Cooking Place and Sanaa.

    Finally, it is just absolutely beautiful!

    Wishing you many magical memories,

    Sally
