We're checking in the same time as you, 9th through 13th. I remember seeing that on the September list that was on the old AKL thread.

Anyone have any news for the Magic Band roll out for Kidani Village? I know September testing was going to include Jambo House (regular and DVC)... Wondering if they're going to roll out to Kidani soon...

oh!! cool news!

My AP was linked with my room this weekend. I used it for Park entry, room door entry and charging. I loved it!! Only had to carry one card instead of 2 or 3. Some CM's were even mystified that it could open doors and charge.

I hope I get a magic band for November!

Question Jiko

I'm trying to plan Jiko for our family, including grandparents, kids, etc. It'll be a later reservation because we're busy in Animal Kingdom with a big tusker house lunch during the day and want to explore the resort a little during daylight hours when we get back. This will be in November, so I don't even know when the sun sets, but can someone give me advice for a good time to eat at Jiko? I think we'll definitely want to do the night-vision goggles, and possibly check out the firepit or whatever is going on... Should we do a 7:00 and possibly some fun stuff afterwards? Or an 8:00 or later reservation and check out the fun earlier?

That is cool! I really don't like carrying everything, always nervous I'm going to lose one.

Sorry BWV wasn't the best.

BWV was nice..great for walking to Epcot..but just not themed as nice. I love how I feel so transported at AKL.

and our room, while super great for a girls weekend, is badly in need of updating. it just looks dated and not intentionally dated. Like it needs to strip the walls down to the studs and redo the fixtures and tile.

I think they are Kidani



Shenandoah Minnie
- we had 5577..it was almost the end of Zebra Trail and a LONG haul from the lobby..but not terrible from Mara's elevator. We saw many animals but I would request "close to Lobby" on your Online CheckIn..just to maximize your animal encounters
