I think depending on what you are interested in either house would be good to stay in.

I like that Kidani is away from the hustle and bustle of the main house but I also love the main house for dining.

We have never cared about traveling time to and from the parks or to dining. That has never been a concern of ours. We also drive so travel time is not big deal and we drive to Jambo to eat at Mara or to the parks.

I have a bus problem but that is for another message board.

We have always had exceptional service from the cast members at AKV. In fact, we have had exceptional service from all the DVC resorts and non-DVC resorts we have stayed at. I would say our best experience was at BCV but AKV is still our favorite. We like the theme, the pools, dining, and animals at AKV.

Good Luck in your decision.

I agree. AKV has the best cast members.

We have also had amazing service at AKL. My son adores the savannah animals and spends hours asking questions about all of them. The CM have always been extremely patient and kind with him. He has autism and can be a bit annoying because he doesn't know when to stop. They have always been wonderful!

I agree with PaulaV's response....

The resort is beautiful, animals walking past your balcony is really exciting...but...we don't spend much time in the room when at Disney, usually we are in the parks all day...then the resort is the furthest ride to all parks(except AK) and I agree on the walk from the bus to your room...we were just in room 7930 Rafiki building, about 1/2 way from front desk to last possible room and it took us 5 minutes to get to our room...I cannot imagine if we has the last room on that floor with little kids.....We have always like Boardwalk because of its close proximity to Hollywood Studios and Epcot AND at there is always something to do on the Boardwalk....snacks for the kids, snacks/drinks for the adults, Boardwalk Bakery....there are performers for the kids(magicians, juggling clowns, music).....just another perspective.

Thank you all for your wonderful postings. We've now decided we're either going to stay at Jambo House in AKL or at The Boardwalk. Our daughter will find out on Monday if she can take off from her work to go with us and she wants to experience AKL but if she can't go then my husband and I would rather stay at The Boardwalk because we enjoy the close proximity to Epcot.
