Just stayed at Kidani Village in July, and it was absolutely fabulous in every way. Wow, maybe the best pool in all of WDW. Actually, I think I can say it IS the best pool at WDW, short of the mammoth Stormalong Bay.
The rooms and atmosphere, lobby and activities are amazing. Bus service was extremely smooth and fast. Cast members clearly loving their jobs and happy to interact with guests. Plenty of cool animals in the savannah to enjoy, and parking is under the buildings, so the cars were easy to get to and always cool inside.
Every day and evening, there were kids marching around the property “on safari” with fun cast members. They’d tell stories by a roaring fire outside, play games or party in the activity center. We hung out there too, because it has a great pool table in there!
But I have to say the best part of Kidani was that at the end of a busy day in crowded parks, it was a huge “aaahhhhh…” moment every time we went home to Kidani. Just so wonderful.
