    Do the buses at Kidani Village have a much longer wait than all the other resorts?

    Jambo, Elise! Welcome back to planDisney! I'm so happy that you've stopped by with your Disney vacation planning question!

    How exciting to be planning another magical vacation to Walt Disney World Resort and Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village! I just returned home from another amazing stay at Kidani Village, and it just confirmed what I already knew - that this Resort is one of my very favorite Disney Vacation Club Resorts. From the time you arrive to the lantern-lit lobby, you are instantly transported to an African village on the savanna, and nothing beats watching the animals roam while sipping coffee or wine on your balcony. I love that you have easy access to the nearby bustling Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge, also known as Jambo House, but you can escape to the quainter Kidani Village at the end of your day. The dining options are some of the very best in all of Walt Disney World Resort, there are countless recreation offerings and Resort activities, and the bus transportation is a breeze, making it the perfect home away from home for your exotic adventure!

    Elyse, I have never waited for a bus at Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village longer than any other Resort. In fact, we have always had great experiences with the bus system at Kidani Village, and I really love the set-up of the bus stop. There are separate waiting and loading areas for each theme park, which makes it very organized, spacious and easy to determine when the bus for which you are waiting has arrived. Although you do share a bus with Jambo House, this has never caused a problem, and just like any other Resort, the buses arrive approximately every 20 minutes. The Kidani Village bus stop does have all of the bus arrival times listed on the overhead screens, and you can even check the bus arrival times under the "Resort Hotel" tab on your My Disney Experience app from your room. This way, you'll know exactly when to head out to the bus stop to catch a ride for that day's wild adventure!

    Since you will be staying at Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village this summer, be sure to plan for some pool time! The Samawati Springs Pool, with its oh-so-fun waterslide, zero-depth-entry, amazing water playground and fabulous pool bar, is one of my favorites in all of Walt Disney World Resort! Don't miss it!

    Elyse, I'm wishing you THE most magical adventure this summer! Please stop by any time with any of your vacation planning questions. I'm always thrilled to help!

    I hope to see ya real soon,
