Just checked in this morning... We LOVE IT... We are turning in early tonight because we had to get up at 4 am for our flight..and we have Star Wars weekend tomorrow morning.

I would post pictures but I don't know how?:confused3

We are in Kidani studio Sav view.. LOVE LOVE LOVE it... Pool is very cool.. A little small but the theming is outstanding. My mother has a handicap room. I took pics so if anyone is interested in those pictures let me know. Lots of animals on our savanna.

Any questions I would be happy to answer?

We'll be there in a couple of weeks, have a blast. Be sure to take a walk out on the savannah behind the lobby, that "fence" there is so much smaller than at jambo, and you feel so much more a part of it, if that makes sense.

We will be checking into Jambo 1 br on 6/13 (still have fingers crossed on waitlist coming thru for Kidani) - anyway, I would love for my youngest to play in that pool. How long is the walk to Jambo house, would it be easier to drive to kidani? Can't wait. Thanks!

I was looking at photos of the Kidani pool area today with my kids. They think it looks fun, but do you think it's as nice as Stormalong Bay at BCV? Does the playground area look like it's for very young children, or would my 8 and 10 year old still feel comfortable playing there? Thank you for the info in advance.

My husband walked it last night for food... It was about 15 minutes each way..10 if you walk quickly. He wasn't pleased with having to do that to get food for the kids. I guess front desk is getting MANY complaints about food options.. Either way we are very happy with Kidani and will walk for food if we have too...:rotfl:

We love the pool area! The slide is awesome is fast.. The start/go light is not working yet so there is a life guard there at all times. Which is OK by me. I can't pull my kids out of the interactive water area...They are 7 and 5 and absolutely LOVE the play area.

DH is going to try and figure out the picture posting. I hope to have pics soon..

To be honest I think the standard view would be better at Jambo because you would have a chance at pool view. I don't think the standard view at Kidani is a good view at all.

Just a quick update on how our stay is going.

Our stay has been awesome. We had reservations at Sanaa tonight and I must say it's been one of our best reservations. The portions are small but it's very nice to have normal sized portions and not feel overstuffed but satisfied when leaving a restaurant. My children loved the kiid options. My only complaint is the no counter service. I really really hope they rethink this option. However it wouldn't stop me from staying here. We just returned from Jambo house and the walk took maybe 10 minutes and pending where you stay in the resort it could much closer.

Our room is on the left side of the lobby. We have had many animals out for our viewing. It seems the best time to view the animals are between 4-6. We also had good view of the animals from Sanaa.

Parks are hot hot hot... but it's June. Tomorrow Magic Kingdom. I can't believe it's our 4th day and we still haven't been to MK... Early morning tomorrow.

I promise to post pictures when I get home to download them..

I totally agree. We just got back from a 3 night standard view studio at Kidani and I truly didn't like the view. It appears to me that all standard views will have traffic noise. We were in room 7915 (5th floor); if you are facing the savanna, we were in the left wing which is only opened by 2 segments. I could hear the Magical Express and Disney Cruise bus that pulled up directly to the porte cochere, as well as the box truck carrying baggage to and from the airport. I could also hear the vibration from the buses that would take people to and from the parks when it pulled away from the stop sign from the bus stop. And this was even with my fan going for white noise. I then studied the area :) and realize that it appears all standard views will hear the buses because throughout the resort there are stop signs for all vehicles within the parking areas. Have you ever heard a bus pull away from a stop sign. :scared1: :laughing:

I have always been about saving points - but no longer at the AKV. Savanna view or forget it. :headache: My fault. :rolleyes1

Was just at Kidani from June 5-9 in a Standard View 1BR. We were in 7211...lobby floor, right near an exit that led right to the buses.

I have to say I didn't really notice any noise at all. I'm a fairly light sleeper. But we didn't spend much time on the balcony with it being a shorter stay.

If you are trying to save points, I wouldn't let Kidani Std View turn you away.

It was great to try out Kidani, but it's not my family's favorite. I don't need the 11 month window here.

Someone asked about the pool and their older kids enjoying it. I have a 13 yr old and 12 yr old. They liked the pool. They don't like it over SAB, but they had a good time swimming there and playing in the water play area.

I think the view conversations are very interesting.

We are going to Kidani in September (first DVC trip) and to save some points, we booked a standard view studio (just 2 of us). The thought process we used regarding the view was how often do I sit and look at the animals? It's still really hot in September and after being in the heat all day at the parks, we probably wouldn't sit for very long on the balcony and watch the animals, in the heat. Additionally, there are many other options for seeing the animals at the various observation locations through both resorts.

Having said that, I am now a bit concerned regarding the noise level. I've been reading the various posts and it seems mixed reviews as to whether you can hear them or not. I guess, as with mostly everything, it's really an individual thing. I am interested to see how we make out with this issue.

Anyway, I appreciate everyone's opinion and have learned so much from this discussion board! You all are so knowledgable and I feel confident in your shared information! Thanks!!:banana:

Sounds like you are having a wonderful time. Enjoy it!

I seem to be creating possibly undue stress for some people about the traffic noise with a Kidani standard. And I think the comment you made about my air conditioning issue has alot of merit. I will try to go quietly into the night now. :laughing:

I think we all have the jitters!! Kidani is a new place that not many of us have experienced. It always go back to personal choice.

I will say we worried about the noise levels through the walls. I read the screaming through the hallways thread while we were in Disney and I thought........is that us? It is all good.

It is nice chatting with a fellow Oklahoman. It seems like we are a rarity around here............

After reading some of the reviews I was already to switch my reservation to Jambo. But since we bought in Jan I have been so excited to stay at Kidani. We got to briefly see it in May. We are now adding a 5th night to a reservation before our Magic cruise. In Jambo we would have a pool view and the Mara. Am I really going to sit out there for an extended time? Well No? We bought into DVC so we would not eat all our meals at the parks. So we will do breakfast in the studio. I really do wish they had a QS but for us we can bring items for breakfast. There is a nice Publix in Ocala we stop at. But for people with small kids I would think the QS would be better. We do plan to use Jambo too but can't wait to go to Kidani! We have been to WDW a lot so there are days when we just go for a few hours. In April we just relaxed at Jambo and did the pool and hot tub. We plan to do that in Oct our first day and eat at Jambo at Boma.

We will be at Kidani Village in late October. We can't wait. I drove over on our last vacation to see all the construction and walk through the main building of AKV. Beautiful.

We also went with Standard Views as we are usually only in the room to sleep. It would be great to wake up in the morning and look out over the Savannah - but for now - we are just excited about staying there.

Reading all the posts, and everything sounds great so far. Thanks for the Pictures, and keep reporting back to all those going!

We just got home.. Sorry for deserting this post.. I was just having too much fun! :cool1::cool1: We really loved Kidani. I wouldn't say it's my favorite resort but I am VERY happy we bought here. I am concerned about the lack of food offerings. While the walk to Jambo is not that far it's just very time consuming and a hassle. I have a feeling they will change this because many people were complaining.

While we were there they were tapping some type of video. Which was cool UNTIL they asked my mother to move her pool seat so they could sit these young models in her place. I thought it was very rude and insulting. The person arranging the video shoot offered to buy us lunch but we declined.

I promise I will post pics soon. We are just getting home and unpacking.

Overal our room was very quiet and we saw animals all the time. I was very disappointed I didn't discover Camp Club(Can't remember the name) until our last 2 days. My son would have loved to take part of this. Oh well it gives us something to look forward too next time.

Transportation was good. I do have some concerns about how full the buses will be once the resort is finished. Not so much for Kidani moreso Jambo.

We loved our first visit there as owners. It was a lovely upscale resort and it is our new favorite. We bought BLT for location but loved the layout of Kidani and the community room. We also loved the pool area but wondered why it opened so late. We had issues with a few things but we spoke to the Operations Manager and he promised to fix whatever he could. I hope they were fixed by your arrival

1 Was the pitcher a full sized pitcher or was it a baby sized pitcher

2 Did they open the water park earlier

3 Did they provide full sized creamer and sugar pieces. The ones we had were so little my granddaughter thought they were part of a kids play set

4. Did they have more Knowlegeable staff. Not that the staff wasn't superb I mean better educated in the resort in which they worked. They never seemed to know anything

5 Did they have more traditional options on the Saana menu. It is hard for those of us with issues with spicy foods to eat there.

Otherwise, and despite these small issues, we had a marvelous time there. I can't wait to go back.

I'm very happy we bought into AKV also and if I "get stuck" with an AKV reservation because I couldn't switch to VWL or BWV, I'll still be happy :)

And then after making her feel like her body's not up to par they offer FOOD? Come on guys.

They could have at least offered was a full set of fastpasses for the rest of your stay ;)

I think the name is Camp Kidani and it was free. It was from 9-11, 2-4 and 6-8. 1 camp was about animal, the other about sports and the last one I think was about reptiles and amphibians(sp??). Each time you complete 1 you get a wooden pin and if you collect all 3 you get something else special. It's a nice break for the kids. I wish I would have known about it earlier. Information is in the lobby.

I think the ages were from 6-12 but I maybe mistaken. I think it's perfect for children 6-10.. Not sure if 11 or 12 olds would like it. I would know more had we tried it. I was really bummed I didn't look into it until our final days. By then we had too many other plans.

I'm very happy we bought into AKV also and if I "get stuck" with an AKV reservation because I couldn't switch to VWL or BWV, I'll still be happy :)




Oh No! That was rude! :mad:
And then after making her feel like her body's not up to par they offer FOOD? Come on guys.

They could have at least offered was a full set of fastpasses for the rest of your stay ;)


I agree... My mother is as skinny as they come but apparently she was "too old" for the mood they were trying to set. Which I find very strange seeing there are many grandparents with the families.

I did find it entertaining to watch them.. Now I know why all those people look so darn happy in those videos.. It's all staged.

It probably was rude to bump her, but I'd of chowed the free lunch and made sure my entire party did so with me.

Looks nice! Although, in general, AKL is not my favorite resort (I'm just not into that whole "African" thing) I love how they incorporated the theme.

Do they have you sign out life jackets for your stay, or is it first come, first served? I have a problem with the latter, as last year, we did not get one on several occations. Has anyone ever inquired with a cast member as to what to do if there is not one available?

It's first come first serve and they never ran low. We didn't have a problem getting what we needed even on busy pool days. I personally prefer this over the sign out.

I would prefer this method too, but last year at Jambo, they didn't have the small size for my daughter on a couple of occations. I think that maybe because of this, some people were taking them back to their rooms to ensure that they got one upon return to the pool. :confused3

That would stink... I never had a problem getting one. We used small and extra small and there were always tons left. I don't think you will have a problem.. I hope this doesn't become a problem..
