Does anyone know if the vanity area in Kidani studios has two sinks or one? Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Aw, we'll just miss you. We'll be so sad, just as you're getting really excited!

Hope you have a great trip too!

These pictures are great. We're going to be staying in a 2br in a couple of weeks and I can't wait. Quick question, are there towels by the pool, or do we take them from the room?

OMG someone yell at me to get back to work.

I was looking at these pics and when I saw your view outside I thought we had stayed in the same room until I realized our couch was where your bed was vice versa... We were one room down... and ours was a value room... looks exactly the same too.. and the same exact view..I remember being above that circular fenced in thing... but again.. we were a room or 2 to the left...LOVED THAT VIEW for value points!!!

HI!
See you in August. We will be there in 3 standard studios in the Jambo house, August 12 to August 18.

We own at BLT and have stayed there and AKL. Our previous stays have been at Kidani Village.

From looking at the Jambo standard view studio pic on here, it seems that those rooms look a little larger but according to the website stats the square footage says that Kidani is larger. So we will see.

Kidani bathroom vanity does only have one sink.

I chose Jambo over Kidani mainly because I wanted to be in the same building as the quick service resturant.

The view of the animals is amazing. Even if you dont have a savanah view room, you wont feel like you are missing out. There are tons of activities around the resort as well.

The only thing I dont like about the AKL is the BUS service. Kidani and Jambo share a bus.

It goes like this: If you are staying a Kidani, the theme park busses will pick you up first and then drive over to Jambo and pick up guests. Thus if you are staying at Jambo, you are getting on a more than likely already full bus. And then, after the 2 loading stops, you are on your way to the parks. When you come back from the parks, the busses stop and unload at Jambo first, so you have people crawling over each other to get out and then people will get on and then you will go over to Kidani and unload again. IMO, the bus service is crowded and SLOW. The next time we stayed at Kidani, we had a car and it was GREAT!!!

All in all .... we love the AKL.

We'll be neighbors then! We have a studio over at Kidani from August 15th-23rd! We have actually stayed at Jambo House twice in the past and loved it! AKL is the overall family favorite. None of us have ever stayed at Kidani though, and we're all really excited! 148 days for us!! Can't wait! Thanks so much for all of the tips and info!
