Most of you know I own a few AKV points and have stayed mostly on Concierge level, but also other Jambo stays. We just spent Monday and Tuesday at Kidani Village. Here are some of my general impressions: Long halls: Yes the halls are annoyingly long. We were on the 1st bead nearest Jambo house, and it took me 6 minutes to walk to the Kidani lobby. By the same token, it only took me 6 minutes to walk to the Jambo lobby as well! Savannah views: That end of Sunset Savannah we were on was pretty void of animals. We saw an ostrich and a pair of roan antelope, but nothing more exotic than that made it down our way. It looks to me like you need to be near the lobby or on the 2 beads either side of the lobby to see the most animals. I didn't go look at Pembe savannah, so I can't say about that one. Parking: LOVED parking under the building! It allows you to be near your car via one of the elevators. It reminds me of parking at SSR only maybe slightly better, because you are closer to your vehicle. Not quite as convenient as OKW, but almost! Studio Kidani VS Jambo. I've decided I like the Kidani studios better. The floor plan is better and the bathroom is MUCH better and not nearly as dark as the bathrooms at Jambo. Decor: I felt the Kidani decor was not nearly as nice as the Jambo decor, but it was much easier to live with! It wasn't nearly as dark in the bathroom, but the bedroom still seemed light challenged. I think the paint colors are better at Kidani. Check in: Kidani takes a big fail for me in this department. We did not get a welcome home packet. The guy handed me a "welcome letter", but nothing else. I was going to ask for one, and then I decided I couldn't understand him well enough so he likely wouldn't understand me either. I went down later and picked up a time schedule so we'd at least have the EMH times and days. I've pretty much decided if I want to stay in an AKV studio, I'll stay in Kidani and request near the lobby. If I stay in a 1 bedroom, I'll likely stick to Jambo because I'll likely either be in concierge or will want to be more guaranteed of a good animal view.
