    Hi! We just booked a room at AKL- Kidani Village. I know there is a coffee maker in the room. Will I need to bring my own coffee? This is our first stay @ AKL and my folks are coming with us. Any tips or hint? The have never visited WDW before.

    Hi, Tracy!

    Wow! Your parents' first stay in Walt Disney World, your first stay at Kidani Village...prepare to be overwhelmed with joy as you first step foot onto Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas-Kidani Village property. It is one very special place.

    You will receive coffee in your villa, just as you would if you were staying in a typical resort elsewhere. Because you are not staying on Disney Vacation Club Membership points (which is different) Mousekeeping will refresh your supplies as needed each morning.

    That being said, I prefer to bring my own coffee, as I like a really strong cup 'o Joe in the morning (flavored creamers are my downfall, too) so I either pack such items in my suitcase or ship them to the resort, with our name on the address label as Guests, including the dates of our stay. You can also purchase coffee at the shop on property, should you need to do so.

    I see from your other questions that you'll have a little princess with you on this wonderful! Be sure to set a little more time aside for splashing and playing at Uwanja Camp, "an animal observation site-themed water playground" right by Samawati Springs Pool. We've booked Kidani Village several times because of how wonderful Uwanja Camp is; our 11-year-old loves it!

    Finally, be sure to book a meal at Sanaa, which is located right on the first floor of Kidani Village. The very first time my husband and I ate there, we cancelled our next night's reservations so that we could visit this fantastic restaurant again the next's that good.

    Send more questions about any aspect of your trip to WDW, Tracy; I love to help!
