Feel the excitement and stay amongst the amazing animals at Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas located at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge. Discover incredible accommodations that combine the luxury of a resort with the creature comforts of home.

There are two Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas buildings -

Jambo House is the original building of Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge. In 2007, some of the guest rooms were converted into 216 villas for Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas. There are still over 950 guest rooms in the Jambo House as part of Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge.

Kidani Village is a new building; separate from Jambo House, with its own front desk for check-in and additional amenities.

Great stay

The rooms are very awesome. The rooms are clean, very big, and are just so great. I wished I could live in the resort. It is so great to be so close to the animals .
Still my fave

We are DVC members and the Disney Animal Kingdom Villas is our favorite place to stay! Not only is it a very clean resort, but the cast member's went above and beyond to make our trip a very memorable one! My 4 year old daughter had her sites set on meeting Pocohantas. When traveling to Animal Kingdom, we were told the park no longer had the Pocohantos show. So disappointing! But we were told we could still meet her, if you take the train ride. Did that too... but it was too late... we just missed her. The cast member's at Disney's Animal Kingdom Kidani Villas went above and beyond, they delivered 2 autographed pictures of Pocohantas & John Smith with my daughter's name on them, to our room! When we returned, they were sitting there waiting for us!
Best trip

We stayed for three night using DVC points. We had a savannah view and loved every minute of it - would do it again.

This resort is awesome but what I love most was the grand villa!!!! This room was larger than my house at more than 2000 square feet! I almost fainted when I walked in, Disney has really outdone themselves. Being the number one tourist attraction in the world I bet many people love to stay at disneys animal kingdom!!! Go disney!

We are staying at : the brand new (one month old) Kidani Village Deluxe Villas at Animal Kingdom Lodge.  This place is everything and more that we hoped it woujld be. To start with, this is structured so  that all the rooms are in one very large building that wraps around the Savannah in two large and very long arms -- we have quite a walk to our room 7454 from the lobby.  However, parking is a dream because the parking lot actually goes underneath the building and the elevators (Zazu elevator in our case) comes right down in the middle of the parking area, almost right next to our car.

The walk, albeit long, is covered the entire distance and air conditioned - unlike some Deluxe Villas.  The lobby is a reduced version of what is now called Jambo House at Animal Kingdom Lodge, with a simlar expansive window looking out over the savannah and beautiful African theming throughout.

Superb view!

We recently had the opportunity to use some DVC points to stay at the newly opened Animal Kingdom Villas in the Animal Kingdom Lodge.  Basically it looks like they converted a wing of standard rooms into villas, we stayed at a 1 bedroom villa which was beautifully appointed and had a great view of the animals.  A few sacrifices were made to fit the villa into the smaller space, in particular the stand-alone shower and walk-in closet were notably absent.  However, the kitchen was then nicest DVC kitchen with granite countertops we‘ve seen in a villa and the bath tub was wonderful, most comfortable tub I‘ve ever experienced. 

Overall it was fantastic and I was extremely pleased with the accomodations.  Can‘t wait to see the real villas when they get finished!
