    What are the big differences in the two different resorts/areas at Animal Kingdom Resort? Can't decide between there and Bay Lake Towers...Traveling with 3 boys (6,8,10) that must have an awesome pool area! Thanks - Love the panel!

    Hi there Mindy!

    The two major difference in the Animal Kingdom Resort is that one Jambo House is a combination of Villas and hotel style rooms and Kidani Village is a newer resort. The original Villas are located on the 5th and 6th floors in the main building—called the Jambo House—of Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge.

    Kidani Village is entirely Deluxe Villas. Both of the resorts have wonderful restaurants and Savannas! Like I said earlier, Kidani is newer and boasts one of the best pools at Walt Disney World so, I'm sure the kids would love that!

    Bay Lake Tower is walking distance to the Magic Kingdom with breathtaking views of Bay Lake and Wishes fireworks. I have to say, I envy your predicament since all of the resorts are wonderful! If the pool is the deciding factor, I would definitely pick Kidani Village.  I hope this information helps you with your planning and if you have more questions, please ask away, we are always here to help! Have a Magical Time at the Walt Disney World Resort! Thanks so much for asking the Moms Panel!
