Answered Question - Disney Parks Moms Panel

  • I'm booking an extended family vacation for nine of us, and we are going to splurge on a grand villa. Which grand villa at Animal Kingdom Lodge is better--Jambo House or Kidani Village? Which savanna has the best views? Thank you for your opinions!

  • Howdy Megan!!

    Oh my goodness!!  WOW!!!  I couldn't be more excited for you!!!  A "Grand" vacation at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge!!!  FABULOUS!!!

    Let's start with the view.  My personal preference is the Sunset Savanna but all of the savanna views are amazing. 

    The pool at Kidani Village is great and if you have children as part of your party, they might enjoy spending time at the Community Hall.

    Jambo House is also fabulous and if you see yourself spending a great deal of time enjoying quick-service meals at The Mara or needing items from Zawadi Marketplace, you might think about staying at Jambo House.  We have always stayed at Kidani Village (which I LOVE) but we find ourselves gravitating to Jambo House to shop or dine.  It's a short walk to and from Kidani and Jambo so you can enjoy the amenities of each resort within minutes.

    I don't know if I have helped you make a decision or just made your selection even more difficult.  Bottom line...Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge is over the top amazing.  You will feel as if you have left Illinois and entered into your own personal African safari.   

    The Grand Villas are very popular so I would encourage you to make your reservation as soon as possible.  So so so excited for you!!!

    Thanks so much for your question and please let me know if you need any further information as you plan your vacation.  Have a magical day!
