Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge DVC Villas: Kidani Village – Photos & Exclusive Videos

Hi everyone!

I am very excited about my latest DVD release, Jeff Lange’s Disney-MGM Studios Parade Classics – 20th Anniversary Collectors Edition (for more information or to order click HERE)! Remember, Disney’s Hollywood Studios will be celebrating it’s 20th Anniversary on Friday May 1st and we plan to have a full report of the festivities!

Denise from partner site MouseSteps had the chance to preview Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge, Kidani Village today and she shares these great preview photos below!

The Kidani sign on the drive in (below, left). When you arrive, you need circle the building to get to the parking area. The front of Kidani/entrance to the lobby (below, right).

Perhaps my favorite area of the resort is the library, which is not far off the lobby. There are many sitting areas (below, left) and a fireplace (below, right).

Displays and unique items are spread through the resort (below, left in the lobby). The Johari Treasures gift shop is where you can pick up unique merchandise as well as snacks and such for the villas, just beyond this lobby couch (below, right).

The lights look like they are shooting flames (below, left). There are a number of areas to enjoy the Savannah (below, right).

The Maji pool bar serves food as well as drinks (below, left). You do need to walk out the front of the resort to get to the pool area, which is extensive. You will find lockers, bathrooms, the fitness center as well as the pool bar here (below, right).

There are a couple of areas to get wet without actually getting into the pool (if being sprayed by water is your thing) and deck chairs to lay in if you want to sun yourself (below left and right). It really is a beautiful pool area, it just seems like an awkward location to me.
