    AK - Kidani Village v. Boulder Ridge v. Copper Creek - where to stay?? Currently booked at AK - KV but questioning my choices, there's just too many good options!! Looking for a 1 bedroom suite. Have a 3 and 5 yr old. Any advice welcome!!!

    Hi Jocelyn, 

    I see that my friend Ashley had some wonderful things to say about Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village and I completely agree with her. My little guy just turned 6 and his favourite Walt Disney World Resort hotel by far is Kidani Village, and he’s stayed at Copper Creek Villas & Cabins AND Boulder Ridge Villas at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge. As you’ve already been able to see for yourself, all of your choices are wonderful, and  having boat transportation to Magic Kingdom Park is lovely. That being said, there’s something special and magical about that Kidani Village, so I highly recommend sticking with your current choice. 

    First, my son absolutely loves Kidani’s pool area, Samawati Springs Pool. The Uwanja Camp splash pad area is perfect for your little ones, and are two water slides for them to enjoy, depending their comfort level. 

    Second, I absolutely love the layout of the 1 Bedroom Villas at Kidani Village. The kitchens are slightly bigger, with a more “open concept” living room and the convenience of a second bathroom is hard to beat. 

    Last, but definitely not least, having animals roaming around in the savanna on the other side of your balcony is truly amazing. I used to love hearing my little guy yell “NANIMAAALS!!!” when he was smaller as he ran towards the balcony to see which of his “friends” was grazing outside.

    Have a Magical Day,
