  • [Pictures] Kidani Village - Over 200 Photos and 5 Video Clips

    I thought I'd stop by Kidani Village after the Celebration Great American Pie Festival (which was a bargain for $10!) Some guests are staying at Kidani Village, I expect it's test stays for cast members - but I'm not positive about that. I was working at the Disney Reservation Center when the Animal Kingdom Lodge opened, and was able to stay there before it was open to the public for a one night test stay.

    I have nearly 200 pics and video links here:

    The sign outside:




    The lobby is really small, and the Johari Treasures gift shop is there as well:




    A thatched-looking inside, with the lights that look like flames:





    Outside:





    On the Savannah, there are giraffes, zebras, and such:




    At the pool area, which also includes the fitness center, pool bar, lockers and restrooms:




    A display for Sanaa, the restaurant which opens with the resort on May 1st:





    Sanaa and the stairs leading to the lobby:





    There is a beautiful library area, which is not far from the lobby:







    One of my 5 videos, this is of the lobby:

    I think that the resort is beautiful - it is a long walk from one end to the other, about a mile. If you are at either end of the resort, that is about a half mile to the lobby. The lobby seems very small to me for such a large resort, though it's very nice - the reservations agents seemed a bit crammed together behind the desk. I LOVE the pool area, but that also seems oddly placed to me - out the front lobby and to the right. It almost feels like it's in the middle of the parking lot. But again, the pool area looks like a lot of fun and I like the layout of it once inside. The library is my favorite room (I have video of that too), it's really well laid-out and has a balcony off of it to enjoy the Savannah.

              Yes, it's part of the Animal Kingdom Lodge Villas. The original building is now referred to as Jambo House, and this is Kidani. Kidani opens on May 1st, as does Sanaa - which is the restaurant.

              Remember I have like 190 more pics and 4 other videos on my site!

                Great pics, I can only dream of one day being a DVC owner. I was in WDW for my first time in December and ate at Jiko in AKL, it was so good and the resort is beautiful!

                          The videos almost seem more popular than the photos. I can't wait to try Sanaa!
