What Readers Are Saying About Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village

This was our first time staying at Kidani. We loved the location and view.

Kidani Village is gorgeous and comfortable and we will never stay there again unless we have our own vehicle! We also loved the Kidani pool (the lifeguards were especially fun) and the Maji pool bar has excellent food.

We loved our 2BR villa at Kidani Village. We had tons of space to spread out. The massive balcony was amazing and the kids loved watching for animals. The themeing was so beautiful and we really felt removed from the parks while at our resort. That was really relaxing.

Stayed at Villas, which were very spacious, comfortable, and clean. The staff were outstanding - perhaps the most service oriented that I have ever encountered, and I've been to many excellent hotels world-wide.

Dining

Kidani has one very good restaurant - Sanaa - and quick-service options

Sanaa Sanaa (sah-NAH) is a favorite of Disney cast members and locals—the flavors are addicting. It’s not as upscale as Jiko— The Cooking Place, the resort’s fine-dining restaurant, offering instead a casual take on African–Indian fusion cuisine. Sanaa serves a quickservice version of breakfast in the morning. Selections include hot foods such as eggs, waffles, and bacon, as well as a limited array of grab-and-go cold foods.

Sanaa Kuamsha Breakfast Quick service breakfast option served at Sanaa.

Maji Pool Bar Located near the pool at Kidani Village. Offers limited grab-and-go options. The slightly more extensive "private dining" options come in bento boxes that are delivered to your table.

Johari Treasures Gift shop in the Kidani Village lobby includes beverage station, snacks, and groceries.

Kidani Village Private Dining

Refillable Mugs Allows guest self-service soft drink refills from quick-service locations in hotels (NOT in theme parks) for $21.99 for the length of stay.

Amenities

SWIPE TO EXPLORE

2 Pools

The Samawati Springs Pool is excellent, with an extensive play area that we've run through more than once as adults. A short walk away at Jambo House is the huge Uzima Springs Pool and is surrounded by lush landscaping.

Arcade

Community Hall arcade is just off the main lobby, and has ping-pong, video games, and sports equipment available for sign-out.

Outdoor Movies

Free Disney Movies Under the Stars are shown most evenings, weather-permitting, near the Pembe Overlook.

Fitness

The Survival of the Fittest Fitness Center has weights, treadmills, and other equipment for your workout. Hours are typically 6 AM to 9 PM.

Campfire Activities

The Pembe Overlook has a really nice campfire area. At night, Disney hosts marshmallow roasts. It's really great during the cooler months of the year.

Early Theme Park Entry

Disney resort guests get into each theme park 30 minutes earlier than off-site guests, every day.

Buy Individual Lightning Lane Early

Those staying at Disney's Deluxe and Deluxe Villa hotels can buy Lightning Lane via Individual Purchase at 7:00 a.m. each day. Others cannot make that purchase until the official park opening time.

Extended Evening Theme Park Hours

Disney's Deluxe and DVC resort guests get two extra hours in select theme parks on certain days of the week. The schedule changes, so check with the front desk.
