Disney World’s Kidani Village

Kidani Village

The sister to Jambo House also provides a chance to view a giraffe strolling by your hotel balcony.

Yet there is something about Kidani that makes it shine just a bit brighter.

You’ll really feel like you’ve escaped to Africa.

Traveler Comment: Disney Kidani succeeds at all levels, even during this pandemic. The staff keeps things safe and friendly. The facility is perfect. Pools with shade, the constant entertainment of animals and great food at Sanaa.

The bedroom area of the standard deluxe studio at Kidani Village has a very similar layout to the standard deluxe studio at Jambo House with a queen bed, nightstand, sleeper sofa, coffee table, “dining” table with two chairs, a dresser, wardrobe and television. The kitchenette still has the mini-cooler, microwave, toaster, and coffee maker. 

Kidani Village has some great amenities as well. There is a big pool with water slide. Children will enjoy water play area and a playground area. Adults will enjoy a pool bar as well as two whirlpools. There is a barbecue pavilion, a basketball court, and a community hall. Sanaa is Kidani Village’s sit down restaurant that serves lunch and dinner. Sanaa also offers several breakfast items for purchase in the morning. The gift shop at Kidani Village also has various food items available for purchase.

Traveler Comment: The pool area is amazing! My son loves the water play area and the playground area has a drum! The resort is very relaxed. You can hardly tell you are at the Walt Disney World Resort when you are here. I love to sit out on the lookout in a rocking chair and watch the animals. The Cast Members are informative and always willing to help you out in any way.


Sanaa, in Animal Kingdom Lodge’s Kidani Village and located on the lower level, is one of the top-rated resort dining options at Walt Disney World. The African-inspired restaurant offers nearly floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the Sunset Savannah. Known for its sunset dinner service, Sanaa is the only high-end dining option in the entire Kidani Village (though the pool bar is one of the best on Disney property). It is a restaurant where you can grab a quick breakfast in the morning or have a leisurely lunch or dinner. If you choose to dine at Sanaa later in the day you will need a reservation as it is very popular with non-hotel guests


Kidani Village has Samawati Springs Pool, which hands down has our favorite splash pad in all of Walt Disney World. There is so much for young kids to do! 


Another huge difference we really appreciated at Kidani Village was the transportation. The Disney buses pick up guests at Kidani Village before Jambo House guests, then returns guests to Kidani Village before going to Jambo House.
