    Hi. When booking a room at Animal Kingdom Lodge, am I able to specify whether I want to stay at Kidani Village or the main lodge building, or are rooms just allocated by the hotel team and you are given your room location on arrival? Thanks

    Hiya Karen!

    Thanks for stopping by with your question! I'm excited you're planning a visit to the Walt Disney World Resort soon! There is nothing better than staying in a Disney Resorts Hotel during your stay! There are a host of perks and benefits that come along with your resort reservation.

    Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge (which is home to the grand lobby) and Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village are located in two different buildings but share the same property. There are also some villas located inside of the main building which are identified as Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Jambo House. When booking your stay, you'll need to choose which one you want to stay at, and your resort room will be chosen inside that specific resort. For example, if you prefer to stay in the main building, you'll want to choose Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge and select a room type there. When you arrive, you'll take transportation to this resort and check in there.

    Each resort has wonderful views of the savannas and all the animals that make their home there. They each have delicious table service restaurants that have unique menu offerings that match perfectly with the theming of the resort. Sanaa, which is located at Kidani Village, has an Indian-style Bread Service that is worth the visit alone.

    Karen, I hope this helps you when booking your upcoming stay! Stop back and see us again at planDisney!

    See ya real soon!
